Outrageous - Canada is getting as bad with its corporations as the US - it's become an international issue now - and I hope that they are stopped!

So the rich repubs still have power. That's not a surprize. They have the $$$$$$. And they do not care about the Earth or anyone besides themselves.

*****The Canadian company says that the Obama administration's ban on new hard-rock mining over 1m acres doesn't apply because its rights date from when it closed over 20 years ago.

However, its approval is based on an environmental study the US Forest Service conducted more than 25 years ago, in 1986.

Several environment groups including the Grand Canyon Trust, the Sierra Club and the Centre for Biological Diversity and the Havasupai tribe filed suit in March against the Forest Service, arguing that the study is badly outdated.

Ya think!?

*****Curtis H Moore, a spokesman for Energy Resources, disagrees. "The Forest Service looked at that review with modern eyes and determined that it's adequate. And 1986 was not that long ago. These are tiny mines about 20 acres."

A mere 27 years ago..heck no..nothing changes in that amount of time!

And I am wondering...WHAT do Republican's have to do with a Canadian mining company going against a ban that Obama signed last year!? Just curious! Seems the Republican's are damned if they do and damned if they don't! Happy Day's everyone!
