Amnesty Launches New “Call the Minister” Action for Justice for Mount Polley Mine Disaster
Federal Ministers Wilkinson and Bennett Need to Hear From You
When a disaster happens, the world watches to see how governments react and tend to the needs of people who were harmed. In the case of the Mount Polley mine disaster Canada’s ongoing reluctance to hold those responsible to account sends a devastating message that authorities aren’t willing to put people and the environment before profit. It signals that companies, like Imperial Metals, will be rewarded with new permits, tax breaks such as hydro rate deferrals, and permit amendments, regardless of whether they respect human rights, the rights of Indigenous peoples, or clean up their pollution.
We can’t let that happen. Will Canada act?
