“Hey, ho! Imperial Metals has got to go!” demonstrators chanted angrily as they marched downtown toward the company’s main office.
At around 2 p.m. on Monday August 11, the Secwepemc Women’s Warrior Society led a protest against Imperial Metals’ mining activities in the Cariboo region. The recent tailing ponds breach in the company’s Mount Polley mine led to 10.5 million cubic metres of mine wastewater and 4.5 million cubic metres of toxic sediment being poured into the waterways near Williams Lake.
