Prosperity Mine isn’t an election issue

We are in the midst of a provincial election. Four years ago there was a lot of debate about the proposed Prosperity Mine at Fish Lake.

We are in the midst of a provincial election.

Four years ago there was a lot of debate about the proposed Prosperity Mine at Fish Lake.

Since then the Federal Government in Ottawa rejected the mine’s application.

They said “no” to Prosperity Mine. It did not meet environmental standards or address the Aboriginal concerns.

Why is this, once again, an election issue?

I don’t understand.

The Federal Government said “no” to Prosperity Mine.

There are a lot of issues that could be debated that are under the control of the provincial government.

It is time to move on.

I want to hear the candidates talk about issues such as unemployment, forestry, health care, education, tourism, etc.
