I write this letter with a great deal of anger and disappointment. Can someone please explain to me what in the hell is going on with the mines in the Yukon?

Can someone explain why the YESAB is in bed with the mining companies and is literally destroying my children and their children’s future? Can someone explain how they let an environmental terrorist such as Capstone discharge 300 million litres of wastewater into the river? Gee, the salmon numbers are making a small rebound, so I guess dumping that water into their homes makes perfect scientific sense.

To all the people at YESAB, did you people get your training and university degree out of a Cracker Jack box? Or are the profits of these useless companies more important? I’m disgusted to be a Yukoner at this time in history. It’s more sickening that these companies are not required to do mining the right way because they have to spend an extra two dollars per ton, and that affects profits.

YESAB, you are lucky I don’t have enough money to sue you, because that’s exactly what I would do. You are permitting, encouraging, and approving activities that are destroying my children’s and your children’s futures.

Profits, profits, profits make the world go round, while we all suffer in the end.

And sooner or later Minto will be another Faro, but who cares? That’s the attitude I see and feel up here. Thinking and logic get in the way of profits. Hang your head in shame, YESAB; you are a disgrace, not only to me, but in the eyes of Nature herself.
