UPDATE: Support the Tsilhqot’in, Stop Taseko Mines Ltd.

On November 26 and December 10, 2012, the Federal Review Panel responsible for assessing the New Prosperity Project issued information requests to Taseko Mines Ltd. requesting additional information on the Project. The Panel received the responses to the information requests on March 13 from Taseko Mines Ltd (TML). Note that this coming Saturday, March 16th is the deadline for comments on the sufficiency of the additional submissions made by TML in response to the Panel’s list of information requirements issued in December.

If you cannot comment on Taseko’s application please tell the panel that you do not support the “New Prosperity Mine” project that continues to threaten the lands and watersheds surrounding Teztan Biny (Fish Lake) and that you support the communities of Tsilhqot’in Nation, who have rejected the project. Finally, inform the panel that you demand the government and industry must seek Free, Prior and Informed Consent for any project proposed on the unceded territories of the Tsilhqot’in communities.

Comments can be sent to newprosperityreview@ceaa-acee.gc.ca.

TML’s submissions can be found here.
