Mining leads to destruction of ecosystems as well as health issues with local populations.

The second section of the attached article clearly states the devastation mining can cause.

In addition, the company Noront Resaurces Ltd. will use materials found in the Ring of Fire in a Ferrochrome plant they want to build in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. The resulting pollution will further increase cancer rates and other illnesses in the area. I find it hard to believe that this will be the only health issue in Ontario that will arise if mining is allowed.

Please reconsider. Send environmentally-friendly jobs, not ones that will kill us later on.
