Publicity about a proposed Copper mine at the headwaters of the Smith River is generating loads of criticism from sportsmen and women from Montana and abroad. While I haven’t heard or read an positive comments regarding the mine, I’m sure there are at least 2 or 3 Canadian mining executives who are in favor of it.
More absurdity in the never ending assault on the environment in the name of greed. More money for a handful of folks, in this case not even Montana or US citizens.
To many Montanan’s, this issue has become our own “Pebble Mine“.
Here’s a recent video from SaveOurSmith.com.
I’m not even going to waste time describing the beautiful Smith River or why it should be protected. Few that read this blog would not know.
