Imperial Mines renewed attack on Clayoquot Sound



The flip side to the 2017 Tofino Summer Jam is the glaring reminder that Imperial Metals still wants to blow the top off Catface mountain and turn it into an open pit mine. I kid you not. Catface Mountain is at Tofino in the middle of Clayoquot sound. They want to turn a protected biosphere into a toxic mess to make a relatively insignificant amount of money on an open pit copper mine. The insane plot just isn't worth it. The Mount Polley disaster was also Imperial Metals.



Ucluelet is right beside Tonino and is the home of the Broken Islands. The boat launch had to be closed a while ago because they found arsenic, selenium and cobalt from an old iron ore mine which effects everything in that area including all the shellfish. We need to Think Sustainability.

Keep an eye on Clayoquot Action. The reckless gluttony needs to stop.

  1. Please keep us posted on C. action.
    It maybe Imperial metals just wants the NDP to say NO, so the B.C. Lieberals can run with the NDP is anti job.
    Imperial metals maybe testing the waters to see how far they can go and that this area isn't the area they want but some other with better profits. On the other hand, perhaps they hope to make their money on the "royalties" they used to get when the B.C. Lieberls were in office.

    These people don't give a shit about what works for us and the environment. the owner is a British Billionaire, a good contributor to Christy Clark and the B.C. Lieberals. I do believe its the same company which didn't have to pay its electricity bill on one of its mines, just the interest.

    This company needs to leave the province. wanting to mine in C. Sound is idiotic.
