* Opposition at Imperial Metals AGM

Members of the Neskonlith Secwepemc Nation and Ancestral Pride Ahousaht Sovereign Territory voiced opposition to Imperial Metals and made clear no mining on unceded territories without free, prior and informed consent. After a rally outside the AGM, five Indigenous activists and a few allies gained access inside, but were grabbed and tossed out by VPD police officers.
