As details emerge around the massive tailings pond breach in British Columbia it’s been learned the mining company was warned at least twice in the last five years about the pond in question.

Mining engineer and a director of Sierra Club Canada Gabriela Rappell joined APTN National News from Ottawa and said the spill could have “huge impacts” on the environment for many years to come, including the local salmon stock.

Rappell also believes the BC government needs to take “ strong action” to ensure the company is on the hook for the spill.
