I see the Mink Stink page hasn't had any updated info for a while. Whatever you do, don't give up the fight. People who live near these disgusting "farms" should not be treated like second class citizens. The mink deserve better too. Our community is completely infested by flies and the authorities do nothing.
Two thirds of Canadians oppose this barbaric industry, yet the government subsidizes them and turns a blind eye to the pollution and disruption to people's quality of life. This must stop now!
Keep fighting. Don't give up.

Mink Farm Pollution Key Culprit in Rendering Nova Scotia Lakes Unswimmable:
Global Fur Farm stats for 2014
Once again the lakes of Yarmouth County are turning green. We have 10 in total, plus the 50 kilometres of the Carlton-Tusket river system in southwest Nova Scotia.The government is very blasť about Cyanobacteria. They say itís fairly harmless, but donít swim in it, do not eat fish from it and do not breathe in vapours from it. Boiling will not fix it and children and dogs are most susceptible to infections.
