Alarmist innuendo and putting-the-cart-before-the-horse-type rhetoric does not serve the B.C. environmental process well.
We have B.C.’s environmental assessment office and the ministries of Health and Environment all answering to required mandates of the Interior Health Authority.
Surely that’s enough environmental protection — with the built-in measures — to exercise patience.
After all, not even KGHM is aware of the environmental reviews at this point. It’s been a rather lengthy process and, no doubt, very thorough.
Anyone can go on and on with plausible “what if?” speculative and unproven scenarios, not regarded as scientific, nor provable environmental evidence — but to what end?
Wouldn’t the greater good be served to exercise common sense and patience?
It just so happens the specific environmental professionals best qualified to report their findings work for said ministries.
I applaud anyone within Kamloops’ 90,000-plus population who, like myself, are awaiting the results.
