Prosperity Mine decision truly boggles the mind
Letter to the Editor
Dear editor, It boggles the mind that the Federal Government said no to such an important economic catalyst as the New Prosperity Mine.
The tens of thousands of secure, high-paying jobs the mine would have created for people in the Cariboo and Williams Lake region are just a small taste of the economic benefits that would have been in store for the entire province.
B.C.’s share of the New Prosperity mine’s revenue would have been in the billions, not to mention all of the spinoff economic activity and jobs that would have also resulted.
Rejecting this project makes no sense.
I urge the Prime Minister and the Conservative cabinet and caucus in Ottawa to turn their gaze to the West and give the New Prosperity mine, and the people of BC, another look.
Prosperity is what we want and what we need.
The New Prosperity mine will bring it to us.
