    Amnesty Launches New "Call the Minister" Action for Justice for Mount Polley Mine Disaster

    Federal Ministers Wilkinson and Bennett Need to Hear From You

    When a disaster happens, the world watches to see how governments react and tend to the needs of people who were harmed.

It signals that companies, like Imperial Metals, will be rewarded with new permitstax breaks such as hydro rate deferrals, and permit amendments, regardless of whether they respect human rights, the rights of Indigenous peoples, or clean up their pollution.

    We can’t let that happen. Will Canada act?
