Any mining company that thinks you can work anywhere in Western/northern Canada without an agreement with local First Nations....is just plain dense. Big mistake that could have been avoided.

Good for the Tsilqotin - hold out for a big payday - big enough for the "intense uncertainty" to waft away and be replaced by a pile of $$...

interesting. how did the original multi-national that discovered the deposit perform work between the 1950's-1970's without native approval? common law is based on precedence. if your real estate property has been used as a right of way by neighbours for years, you cannot build a fence to stop the traffic, why? precedence. these native issues cannot be heard by a canadian judge in a canadian court because it is not the court of law that is to determine whether native rights truly exist- there is the hague court that deals with issues between nations- all these native land claim issues in british columbia are about civil servants lining their pockets.

I thought we were all CANADIANS and citizens of Canada. If the people of the Tsilhqotin "nation" (sic)feel they are not citizens of Canada, then perhaps they could repay all of the Canaidan taxpayers monies that have been spent on their behalf over the years for facilities such as health care, education, housing, social workers, lawyers, etc.

In fact, I am willing to bet that the current lawyers who are working on behalf of the Tsilhqotin "nation" are receiving monies paid to the band council by the Federal Government's Northern and Indian Affairs department, who got the monies from working Canadian taxpayers.

The "leaders??" of the Tsilhqotin people say they don't want to "disturb" the local environment, yet they tear all over the very same countryside with ATV's, snowmobiles, and 4X4 vehicles, chasing and shooting wildlife, and sometimes, each other.

Just some thoughts.

More uninformed rhetoric fueled by stereotyping and racial profiling. Of course these First Nations people are Canadians and proud of it. Mostly Canuck supporters I would guess.

Hands up all who have actually looked at the environmental reporting and assessment. Two hands up if you can point to where this property is on a map of BC.

It isn't too hard to make up a metaphor for what is happening here: hands up again, who wants a half way house for detoxing drug and alcohol addicts in their neighborhood? How about a garbage incinerator or a new highway overpass? Only a true Canadian would allow these projects to go ahead inspite of the degradation of their real estate prices and quality of life - NOT!.

No one expects you, a Canadian, to sit by while decisions taken by bureaucrats and civil servants hundreds and in this case thousands of miles away destroy what you consider your right to a clean, noise free and safe environment. Why would you deny this right to other Canadians?

To "A Geologist":

Oh, getting a little "testy" are we. For your information I live with a 1/2 mile of an overpass and within 1.5 miles of a landfill site.

You will notice that I have posted my name and email address. I haven't hidden behind a "non-de-plume" or fixtitious name. Seems to be a continuing pattern here with person purportedly representing the Tsilhqotin "nation".

I am pround to be a Canadian and I am proud to identify myself. In addition, I have a small business that employs people and I am a taxpayer. Are you?

Of course this is now a special part of their territory, its full of gold. Once again the Indians have their hands out and want something valuable for nothing
