Co-Executive Director Joe Foy talks to Carolina de Ryk who hosts Daybreak North - Prince George and Northern BC's CBCs radio show. Foy talks about the 5 year anniversary of the Mt. Polley mine tailings spill and how Imperial Metals,' the Vancouver based mining company responsible for the spill, has yet to pay a single dime in fines. The Mt. Polley spill is one of Canada's worst environmental disasters. The Aug. 4, 2014, collapse sent 24 million cubic metres of mine waste into Quesnel Lake, Hazeltine Creek and other area waterways.
