The B.C. Mine accident didn't hurt fish


September 27, 2018

Tier III was predicated on the assumption that the 2014 mine accident in eastern B.C. was a disaster on their local salmon run. Now that we know that not to be true, Klukwan should rescind its Tier III proposal and every member on our local Fish and Game Advisory Board should resign for backing such a preposterous proposal. The board has become nothing more than an extension arm of three local extreme environmental organizations. They aren’t about saving our salmon; they’re about stopping the Constantine Mine. And logging. Just look at their recent ridiculous action to curtail road construction on the Haines Highway project. They are an embarrassment and determent to our community’s economic future and local individual well-being. They have politicized the original intent of our advisory board, and need to be investigated and the state needs toughen their qualifications for future board members and voting standards.
