Senator Murkowski writes to Secretary of State Kerry to protect AK fisheries

Lety Hopper : Aug 11.2014

 

Senator Murkowski writes:

“The tailings pond breach at the Mount Polley Mine on August 4th has renewed the specter of environmental impacts from large-scale hardrock mineral developments in Canada that are located near transboundary rivers.”

“…this incident should compel the State Department to evaluate additional steps that may be warranted to safeguard U.S. interests.”

“One such step would be to encourage Canada’s federal government to undertake a Panel Review of the Kerr-Sulphurets-Mitchell (KSM) mine in British Columbia.”
