Prince George, B.C.
Support the New Prosperity Mine proposal!
That was the challenge Cariboo-Prince George Conservative MP Dick Harris issued in the House of Commons this week.
It was directed towards First Nations leaders in the Williams Lake region.
"I think it was prudent that I remind the leaders opposing the mine that unemployment is out of control and extremely high in their communities and there are no jobs on the horizon for them."
Harris says an approved mine would offer training and high paying jobs to First Nations people.
Ottawa is expected to hand down its decision on the mine by the end of the month.
