No new Elk Valley coal mines until selenium impact resolved, environment minister says
Teck commits $600 million over five years to address water-quality issues
Teck Coal facing serious water pollution in Elk Valley
The following is available on Teck's web site, talking about there plans to deal with issue.
I do not think anybody would argue that a company has the right to destroy the environment that it operates in. I believe that without the coal mines this corner of Alberta and BC would be ghost towns. I also believe that this problem will be dealt with, maybe not as fast as some people would like it to be. Let's also not lose sight of the fact that some groups would like nothing more than to see all development of our resources stopped.
I remember back to the early 80's when the Line Creek and Greenhills mine were being proposed some groups gave us the impression that the Elk Valley, and it's wildlife would face a bitter demise. Here we are thirty years later.
