Halifax Initiative Canadian Mining Map Poster Highlights Destructive Mines

(Halifax Initiative, Ottawa, 11 December 2006) The 23 projects featured on the map show wide temporal and geographic scope - showing that the incidence of Canadian mining projects associated with significant adverse social and environmental problems is far more widespread than the mining industry would have us believe. The map shows that many mines benefit from public support - both directly from the Canadian government (including EDC) and through IFIs.
