Federal Government files injunction to stop Fish Lake drilling

The Tsilhqot’in Nation has more backing against the drilling permits issued to Taseko Mines during the last days in office for the Liberals.

The Federal Government is now on board and has filed court action to permanently prohibit the mining company from carrying out any drilling at Fish Lake.

Tsilhqot’in representatives were arguing their case in BC supreme court two weeks ago, and now BC’s highest court has suspended their ruling because of the federal intervention and a commitment from Taseko that they will not proceed with the drilling program at this time.

The Federal Government filed a petition in the BC supreme court August 10th, stating that the company was violating the Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, 2012.

According to a release, the Tsilhqot’in Nation is looking forward to the full hearing.
