Organization, Land Guardians call on federal minister to turn down Mary River mine proposal
Greenpeace has launched a petition urging rejection of Baffinland Iron Mines Corp.’s proposed expansion of its Mary River iron ore mine.
In a news release, the environmental advocacy organization says it’s calling on federal Northern Affairs Minister Daniel Vandal to reject the proposed expansion.
The petition, which as of Friday morning had 201 signatures, was launched with the Nuluujaat Land Guardians, a group of Inuit hunters who last year blocked the mine’s airstrip and tote road in protest of the expansion plan.
