When mines poison waterways in British Columbia, Canada, taxpayers swallow the costs

The Mount Polley mine - Jul. 2014 - about a week before the infamous
breach of its earthen containment dam.
After the breach, massive amounts of wastewater surged into
nearby creeks & lakes. Photos by NASA.

Outdated laws, weak enforcement leave the public on the hook for cleanup. Story here.

This was the biggest mining disaster in Canadian history. If there were a law against ecocide (the murder of Mother Earth), many of our politicians and captains of industry, would be in the slammer.
