Say no to new coal mines in the Elk Valley (https://sierraclub.bc.ca/no-new-coal-mines/?utm_source=Sierra+Club+BC+Email+Subscribers&utm_campaign=84f4c38ef5-EMAIL_CAMPAIGN_2019_03_14_10_08&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_bfb6e7f3fb-84f4c38ef5-97304685)
Right now, billion dollar global giants like Teck Resources are relentlessly extracting coal and contaminating river systems with toxic selenium pollution while our government turns a blind eye.

Please tell the BC government you expect no coal mining expansion in the Elk Valley until pollution is brought under control.
