This is the story of Kamloops, a community of 88,000 people in the arid, endangered grasslands of the interior of British Columbia, Canada. The city is at a decision-making crossroads that will profoundly affect its future and the future health of its citizens. The decision regarding the possible location of a giant, foreign-owned (Polish) open-pit copper/gold mine within city limits has the potential to redefine the city. The fo;, gives people a visual sense of the changes that would be taking place in the physical environment of Kamloops. It provides facts from verifiable sources and poses serious questions that people should be considering with respect to risks that the mine would present. It contains a special message from internationally known water expert Maude Barlow (National Chairperson of the council of Canadians), interviews from doctors, an engineer, city councillors and a special message from the mayor of a mining town still living with the effects of unmitigated mining activity. It gives voice to ordinary citizens, both young and old, to articulate their concerns with respect to the mine. What is happening in Kamloops is a microcosm of what is happening in many parts of Canada with respect to gutted environmental legislation and the determination of federal and provincial governments to facilitate the exploitation of Canadian resources whatever the costs.
