Today the panel that makes enviro assessments to the federal government made recommendations to the federal gov’t regarding converting FISH LAKE into a tailings pond. (Interesting that our provincial gov’t OK’ed it.)

THEY recommended not to do it. The HARPER government still has to make the final decision, so write some letters don’t just cross your fingers. But it’s really good news I wrote a lot of letters hope you did too, I even contacted singer Neil Young’s manager.

Today the federal review Panel of the Canadian Environmental Assessment Agency (CEAA) made their long, and anxiously awaited, recommendations to the federal government re Taseko Mines proposed open pit gold and copper mine: the mine that would destroy Fish Lake

“The Panel concludes that the Project would result in significant adverseenvironmental effects on fish and fish habitat, on navigation, on the current use of lands and resources for traditional purposes by First Nations and on cultural heritage, and on certain potential or established Aboriginal rights or title.

The Panel also concludes that the Project, in combination with past, present and reasonably foreseeable future projects would result in a significant adverse cumulative effect on grizzly bears in the South Chilcotin region and on fish and fish habitat.

  1. This is the only outcome; I expected but worried about it for the past few years! This is the year 2010 and we are still fighting for our land and peace to happen for us! What is wrong with this picture?

    • I agree. It is my hope that the Harper Gov’t will do the right thing and protect this valuable wildlife corridor.
      It’s a beautiful area.
