Despite years of concern from Tribes and First Nations, scientists, businesses, residents and stakeholders across international lines, and unanimous calls upon the federal governments to enforce the Boundary Waters Treaty due to ongoing and threatened pollution from B.C. mines, the U.S. Department of State and Global Affairs Canada have yet to honor their mutual obligations to protect our shared transboundary watersheds and establish a binational process that involves Tribes and First Nations.
Join us for an unprecedented dialogue between members of the U.S.-Canada International Joint Commission, Indigenous Leadership, and key stakeholders on U.S./B.C. transboundary watersheds and the threats they face from large-scale B.C. mines.
When: Thursday, May 14, 2020
10:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m. Alaska time,
11:30 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. PST

This will be the first time these Indigenous leaders connect across borders and state lines regarding pollution from B.C.’s large-scale mines at the headwaters of rivers that flow into the United States (U.S)
