Letter: More mining hysteria in Kamloops


Re: (‘Old Afton/proposed Ajax mine site near Kamloops eyed in water quality worries,’ Oct. 5):

article continues below

The times of hysterical Ajax nonsense are upon us again. This water quality initiative was inspired by the usual suspects and funded by the Western Mining Action Network (WMAN).

Anyone can present an argument for or against anything with cherry-picked data and it is inconceivable that a professional geoscientist would ever produce a technical report for the $4,000 that WMAN paid.

Readers should be aware that WMAN is conducting a virtual conference this month titled “Addressing Mining and Systematic Racism: Staying connected During a Pandemic.”

Here we go, again.
