The Tsilhqot’in Chiefs will be presenting to Williams Lake’s City Council Tuesday Dec. 4, at 6 p.m., on their nation’s opposition to the “new” Prosperity Mine Proposal.

In a press release the TNG chiefs said they are proud to have alongside them Grand Chief Stewart Phillip and Chief Bob Chamberlin, who along with Xeni Gwetin (Nemiah Valley) Chief Marilyn Baptiste, represent the executive from the Union of BC Indian Chiefs.

The Tsilhqot’in will be walking to City Hall shortly before their presentation from their offices at 253 4th Avenue North, alongside non-First Nation citizens and groups including the Council of Canadians and Fish Lake Alliance.

“The presentation is being made days after the Federal Review Panel charged with assessing the impacts from Taseko Mines Ltd.’s proposed “New” Prosperity mine has issued a statement of ‘major deficiencies’ in the company’s Environmental Impact Statement,” the press release stated.
