Canadian Mining Corporation Imperial Metals wants to mine an area of Northern Central British Columbia that would drastically affect multiple indigenous nations traditional homelands including the Tahltan Nation. The project is called the Red Chris Mine. The Tahltan people voted in favour of the project, although it is not a fair representation due to overall low voter turnout. Public awareness amongst the Nation would promote better understanding of the dysfunction to ecosystems and hopefully put a stop to mining in the region.
