Mass protest and a Supreme Court ruling resulted in the shuttering of one of the world's largest copper mines. But what comes next?
I understand that we need copper, we also need a certain kind of coal.
Canadians could take a lesson from Panamanian folks who resist open-pit copper mining through plebiscite and other legal ways..
The open pit coal mines on the Eastern Slopes pretty much pose the same hazard as seen in Panama.
We need a plebiscite. If open pit mining is not good enough for Panama, it's not good enough for Alberta.
