The Tahltan Nation in northern British Columbia has once again set up a road block to stop Imperial Metals from opening a new mine.
They fear that the Red Chris Mine threatens their territory.
Imperial Metals also owns the Mount Polley Mine which, two months ago, saw its tailings pond dam fail and release millions of cubic metres of toxic waste water.
The Red Chris mine has a similar tailings pond and the Tahltan erected a second roadblock in just a month at the entrance of the mine.
In downtown Vancouver, Imperial Metals’ head office was also hit by a rally.
