CBC News picks up Constantine Mine story

CBC Yukon is a good follow on Facebook for people from Haines and Skagway. They seem to be following the story of our mining threat closely. Maybe because it is close to them, it is a Canadian  mining company, and that so many people from Whitehorse love to come to Haines for the fishing and wildlife viewing.

Haines Highway Reconstruction a Farse

The Haines Highway in the USA is one of the easiest, safest, mountain environment roads anywhere. It is almost completely flat with no grades to speak of. There are no off cambered turns or other dangerous conditions. It is simply easy to drive and safe.

So why is a $100 million dollars being spent on it? Good question. First it’s a welfare grab to keep DOT and construction crews getting paid for years. Second it is a big give away to industries that don’t even exist yet!! Large scale mining, mining materials from Canada, pipeline building assistance, etc all do not exist yet but are the true reason for the terrible money waste. No wonder we have so much national debt.

Do not Industrialize Haines.

Alaska Clean Water Advocacy stands up for Haines

Slowly but surely a vocal opposition is starting to rise up against the Constantine Mine in Haines Alaska. Just like Bristol Bay, people are realizing we have to much to lose with a mine that  would be too dangerous to not fight.

A renowned filmmaker just passed through town and was heard saying that we have all the ingredients to fight a mine like this. A ancient native village, the only bald eagle preserve in the country, a healthy tourism industry, subsistence fishing, commercial fishing, and sport fishing. All of these could be destroyed by a mining accident.
