I used to live in the region. I think it is easy for people who dont understand the scale and scope either the salmon fishery, nor pebble until they can see it for themselves. I am not a greenie, but this proposal is about the worst idea I have heard.

I think the most telling and notable part of that article is that over a hundred people testifies on the issue. Not a single one was in favor of the mine.

While pebble has spent tens of millions on fighting political campaigns and catchy PR ads, promised jobs. The locals on the ground know the situation best and arent buying into the industrialist propoganda.
