We read with interest the letter from grades 4 and 5 students from Nesika Elementary School in Tuesday’s paper.
We commend these young people for taking an active role in environmental stewardship and we applaud the courage they have demonstrated in standing up for what they believe.
It is in all of our interests to ensure that future generations have the full facts at their disposal so that they can make informed decisions and affect meaningful change.
To that end, we would like to invite Mrs. Burns’ class of engaged young people to see our Gibraltar Copper Mine in operation and learn firsthand the measures that Canadian mining employs to remain responsible and forward-thinking.
Gibraltar, in fact, is and has been a sustainable cornerstone of the Williams Lake community for more than 20 years.
We encourage the students to bring their questions and concerns to us during an exclusive information session so that we may address them in an open and factual way and give them the best chance at making up their minds about New Prosperity.
We embrace this opportunity to engage with the youth of Williams Lake to help them navigate their way through all of the information surrounding this project.
