First Nations gather at Jacko Lake
The Ajax Mine proposal is facing an aboriginal review.
There was a gathering yesterday at the proposed Ajax Mine site. About 200 school children and local First Nation leaders and teachers got together at Jacko lake. It's known in the Secwepemc language as Pipsell. It was a celebration of sorts. All in the lead up to the Indigenous Environmental Assessment Panel Hearing. First Nations are doing their own review of the AJAX proposal. That hearing gets underway on Monday. Daybreak's Jennifer Chrumka went to see how First Nation culture will factor into whether or not they will support the mine.
