An open letter to Prime Minister Stephen Harper:

My husband and I would like to show our support for the New Prosperity Mine project before the Environmental Review Committee.

Our community Williams Lake, B.C. desperately needs this source of jobs and economic stimulation in these difficult times.

The devastation caused by the mountain pine beetle has left our young people with fewer and fewer jobs in the forest and logging industry.

Please help to give approval for Taseko to go ahead and develop this critical resource.

Keith and Connie Jones

Williams Lake

Editor’s note: The Jones family received a response from the Prime Minister’s Office stating they would forward the concerns to the minister of environment, Leona Aglukkaq for consideration.
