The  Council of Canadians stands with the Tsilhqot’in National Government in  rejecting the federal government’s  reopening of a rejected proposal for the Prosperity Mine in British Columbia. The move violates the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of  Indigenous Peoples and the UN-recognized right to water. Even Taseko, the company that is proposing the mine, is  on record as having stated that this ‘new’ option to dispose of the mine’s  toxic tailings is worse than the plan that was rejected by the federal review  panel. A new panel would therefore also be a waste of public funds…. visit the webpage.
