On Friday night,  a B.C.coal company will hold a public meeting in the tiny Similkameen community of Tulameen.

That's where, last Saturday, a tailings pond overflowed, spilling mining waste into the Tulameen River.

The spill turned parts of the riverbed black.

Some people say the company should have provided more information, sooner.   
Bob Stearn lives in Coalmont, near the Tulameen River. We also hear from Keith Meldrum who speaks for the company.
