Mining Banned in Flathead River Valley, BC

I'm heartened to hear that British Columbia has made a firm commitment to protect the headwaters of Glacier National Park by banning mining and drilling in the Flathead River Valley. http://3.ly/BritshColumbia "There's still work to be done here, but I'm not going to lie to you, I'm a pretty happy guy right now," said Will Hammerquist of the National Parks Conservation Association. "You had a land-use plan in place that put mining above all other values. This announcement signals a shift away from that."
