Russell Hallbauer, CEO of Taseko (Prosperity) Mines wants to drain FISH LAKE, between world class Yohetta Valley/Chilko Lake-Ts’yl-os and Big Creek Provincial Parks and remove 85000 existing rainbow trout and create a tailings pond.
Do you want him to create “Prosperity Lake” with bigger and better fish after the mine has used the original lake for toxic tailings?
Hmmm I wonder why they called the lake Fish in the first place?
BC Government and its Liberal funded Environmental Assessment Office support this travesty.
The protection of Teztan Biny Fish Lake an issue for the local First Nations people, it is an issue for ALL Canadians. Teztan Biny is only one of a number of freshwater lakes across this country of ours that is slated for extinction in the interests of corporate mining. In other words, our governments are allowing the “right to mine” to supersede the rights of local inhabitants to protect their water resources for future generations.
Yes corporate man should manipulate nature and local inhabitants sense of place for economic gain … do you agree?
