Natural Resources gets the crown this year for muzzling an internationally-known Canadian geologist.
Scott Dallimore was kept from speaking about his work on the breaking of a prehistoric ice dam 13,000 years ago until vetted "media lines" could be approved by the minister's office.
The case resonated with editorial writers and was held up internationally as evidence of the Harper government's obsession with message control.
"What could be so secret about a 13,000-year-old ice dam that merits muzzling a top Canadian scientist?" said CAJ president Mary Agnes Welch."
Development of Prosperity Mine at Teztan Biny can only proceed, according to Taseko Mines spokespeople, with the total destruction of the lake, because the multibillion dollar ore body of gold and copper lies right under the lake...
...This beautiful lake contains 85,000 fish belonging to a unique monoculture of rainbow trout, an important First Nation food fishery since before contact. It is also a significant recreational fishery for many non-native fishers from all over the province. The provincial Ministry of the Environment says it is one of the best fishing lakes in the Cariboo/Chilcotin region.
