Canada Update

10th July 2006

Canada's chief mining newspaper, the Northern Miner, has made some interesting, even sympathetic, observations on the conflict between the country's First Nations and mining companies.

At the same time Canada's international development agency is roundly criticised for boosting the industry against community interests. "Why", demand aid groups, "is CIDA, a publicly funded humanitarian organization, promoting outside investment to the benefit of mining companies?"

A US court has ruled that Teck Cominco must clean up its messes south of the border, even though they originated in Canada.
