The World Health Organization on 17, Oct. 2013 declared after reviewing over 1000 articles that "Air Pollution Causes Cancer." It's not our right to to induce any kind of chronic diseases in our children or anyone. Reconsider our Needs and Wants and make the right decisions. The "Kamloops Physicians for a Healthy Environment", is to Educate, Not Demonstrate. Over 500 articles available on kphe.ca. This mine has to be stopped in order to protect the Reputation of the Mining Industry in BC. To protect wildlife in parks, but not a city of 14,000 children is shameful and blackens the entire industry. An Open Pit Mine in the city will adversely affect the image that we worked hard for and enjoy today. PLEASE WRITE TO YOUR M.L.A. about modernizing the BC Mineral Tenure Act.
