First Nation prayers said to be “inappropriate” at public hearings



APTN National News
A British Columbia mining company has told the Canadian government – First Nation prayers are inappropriate at public hearings.

That’s just one of the surprising claims made by officials with Taseko Mining – as they enter into a new round of public hearings on a bid to dig a gold mine in central B.C.

The mine is opposed by the Chilcotan whose traditional territory would be infringed on.

But as APTN’s Rob Smith explains – the growing uproar over Taseko’s letter is spreading.
