Opposition to Mining in Sacred Headwaters Ramps Up

The opposition to Shell Canada’s plans to explore for coal-bed methane in the headwaters of the Nass, Skeena, and Stikine Rivers ramped up this past weekend. A rally in Hazelton (Gitksan territory) attracted four hundred opponents to Shell’s drilling project. I suspect the pressure on Shell will continue to grow throughout the summer despite the fact that Shell has delayed their drilling program to the fall.
