Time is running out for Fish Lake

Here we go…last chance to voice our opinion on the Fish Lake Taseko Mines’ project… an alert from the Wilderness Committee:


Time is running out for Fish Lake

Hi Eldy,

As you know, we’ve been working for years to help protect  Fish Lake from Taseko Mines’ plans to build an open-pit gold and copper mine, and  right now it’s a critical time to voice your opposition!

This beautiful lake in the heart of Tsilqhot’in Nation  territory – west of Williams Lake, BC – would be put at serious risk if Taseko’s  New Prosperity Mine goes ahead. The  federal review panel assessing this project is currently holding public  hearings, and there is just ONE WEEK left to voice your opinion by submitting a  written comment.

If the New Prosperity Mine is approved, it could have  drastic impacts on the region’s abundant fish stocks, and would jeopardize  habitat for a threatened population of grizzly bears. The Tsilqhot’in people –  the original inhabitants of this territory – have made it abundantly clear that  they are opposed to the mine, and it’s time for us to stand with them once  again and ensure that this troublesome project never gets built.

Thanks to the strength of the Tsilqhot’in Nation and the  support of people like you, this mine proposal has caught the attention of the  province – and we aren’t going to stop now! Please write to the review panel today  and tell them to say “NO” to the New Prosperity Mine, once and for all.

If you’ve already written to the review panel, thank you for  standing up for Fish Lake. You can also help by forwarding this to your  friends, or by sharing the letter-writing tool with your networks via social  media.

Time is running out. The  deadline for public comment is August 22, 2013 – so please write  today!

For the wild,

Joe Foy | National Campaign Director Wilderness Committee
