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
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
