COMMENT: Sierra Club Prairie on approval of Total Joslyn Mine

27 Jan 2011

Sheila Muxlow, Director with the Sierra Club Prairie had the following to say about the approval of Total's Joslyn Mine.

"Merely minutes after celebrating the creation of an oil dominated advisory panel the Provincial government fell further from their 'world class' ideals and signed off on another toxic tar sands mine under an admittedly broken system. The Joslyn North mine puts downstream communities at risk for further treaty rights violations, further health problems, and further environmental damage. It's time this government learns to subtract from their problems rather than continuing to add to them, because disappointingly the only thing 'world class' coming out of this government is deception."
