Lakes as Mine Dump Sites

WHAT?????!!!!! Big news on the CBC today, 16 lakes here in Canada are slated to be turned into places where mines dump their toxic tailings. It's being done quietly, getting around laws that protect fish-bearing lakes. How horrible!!!!

Read the whole story here.

Terribly disturbing news, hopefully now that the word's out, the outrage will prevent this from occurring. Considering this is CANADA, which is known internationally for our beautiful lakes, streams, and forests, we really can't be doing such things!!!
