Lakes across Canada to be turned into mine dump sites


Lakes are in B.C., Manitoba, Newfoundland and Labrador, Northwest Territories and Nunavut

CBC News has learned that 16 Canadian lakes are slated to be officially but quietly “reclassified” as toxic dump sites for mines. The lakes include prime wilderness fishing lakes from B.C. to Newfoundland.

Whatever side J.M. and Wonder Woman are on…I’m with them.

    Hi,

    I caught your post about Canadian lakes being turned into dumps and I
    thought I’d drop you a line. My name is Thom Duggan and I’m one of the many Canadians working to end this backward plan. So, I just wanted to say hi and thank you, for one.

    One of the ways we’re going to be trying to keep Canadians involved
    and informed on this issue is though the blogging circles in Canada.

    I’d like it if you’d agree to join our “blogcorps”. It’s mostly just a
    special list that we’d keep of bloggers, like yourself, who would like updates and alerts about the issue from time to time (no
    coverage-obligation, of course). Some bloggers have signaled that they want to get involved more deeply in the campaign, and that’s great too.

    If you’d like some background information even now on the issue, I can send you a few things. Or if you’d like to get in touch with someone from the campaign, either nationally or in your general area, we’ll be able to do that stuff, too (we have a webpage coming soon that will
    bring local citizens, bloggers, scientists, and activists
    together…more on that later).

    We’ve been blown away by the response online; thanks for being a part of that. Would you like to receive updates from us on this in the future?
