James Keller, "Mount Polley Mine1 Spill: First Nations Health Officials to Start Salmon Testing"

1
Likely, B.C.– First Nations health officials are preparing to test salmon near the site of a massive mine tailing spill in British Columbia amid fears in aboriginal communities that fish from affected lakes and rivers aren't safe to eat.
The provincial government has been testing water in Quesnel Lake and Quesnel
5
River after the tailings dam at the Mount Polley Mine failed last week, releasing millions of cubic metres of water and silt.
Water test results have so far found levels of contaminants such as heavy metals within government guidelines and the province has said the spill isn't a danger to human health or aquatic life.
10
But the chiefs of the Williams Lake Band and the Soda Creek Indian Band both say members of their communities aren't convinced, and they've stopped fishing in what would normally be the busiest time of the year as salmon return to their spawning grounds.
"People are paranoid and they have every reason to be," Chief Anne Louie of the
15
Williams Lake Band said in an interview.
"The timing of it is catastrophic for our people. Right now, everybody would be preparing their fish for the winter, but that has not been done."
The First Nations Health Authority, which oversees aboriginal health care in B.C., says it's developing a salmon tissue sampling program to address concerns about
20
the consumption of fish.
Quesnel River eventually meets the Fraser River, and the testing will focus on salmon in that area, the health authority said. Salmon reach the Quesnel River about two weeks after entering the Fraser.
The health authority said it will test salmon caught by First Nations since the spill and
25
compare whose samples with fish caught last year.
"There is currently no indication that the discharges from the Mount Polley Mine tailings pond and subsequently released into the Fraseer River would have an immediate impact to those consuming the fish," the health authority's email said.
"However, due to the importance of fish to the subsistence of First Nations people,
30
further testing is desired by First nations in the affected region."
Until such testing is complete, Louie said members of her community won't be going on the water to catch salmon.
"It's easy for people to say it's OK to eat the fish," said Louie. "They probably don't eat fish from there."
35
The federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans issued a notice last week closing the recreational salmon fishery on Quesnel River and Cariboo River because of the tailings spill, but the fishing ban doesn't apply to First Nations, Louie said.
Imperial Metals (TSX: III), which owns the Mount Polley Mine, has downplayed the risks associated with the spill, saying the water in its tailings pond was almost
40
drinking-water quality and that the silt was "relatively benign."
Chief Bev Sellars of the Soda Creek Indian Band said she doesn't think anyone knows for sure what leaked out of the tailings pond and what effect it will have on the surrounding environment.
"Our people are not going down the river – they're scared of it," said Sellars.
45
"There are a lot of questions and it really bothers us that they're saying everything is OK out there. I really think it's too soon to say everything is fine."
Ellen Petticrew, a University of Northern British Columbia professor who specializes in aquatic ecology, agreed that it's too soon to say for sure how the spill will affect salmon and other aquatic life. Those answers, she said, are likely years away.
50
"They've done certain tests on fish to determine what the lethal doses are for certain contaminants, but we don't know the cumulative effects of this mixture of material," said Petticrew, who is studying the potential effects of the spill along with her colleages at the Quesnel River Research Centre.
"We can drink bottled water, but the fish can't move away from this."
55
Petticrew said any heavy metals the salmon pick up while they migrate through the spill area would then travel with them to their spawning grounds, potentially spreading the contamination farther afield.
Imperial Metals did not respond to an interview request on Monday.
The tailings spill has prompted several investigations.
60
B.C.'s Ministry of Energy and Mines is investigating what caused the breach, as are provincial conservation officers.
Environment Canada has also started its own investigation.
Some residents in the area are still under a ban on drinking or bathing. The ban was partially lifted Friday for the twon of Likely, B.C., and northern sections of Quesnel
65
River, but it remained in effect Monday for southern Quesnel River, all of Quesnel Lake, Polley lake, Hazeltine Creek and Cariboo Creek.
The provincial government said water and debris continues to flow out of the tailings pond, though it has "decreased dramatically". The company is building a temporary dyke to block more tailings from leaking out.
65
The province has said it will be the company's responsibility to pay for the clean-up.

In 2014, the tailings dam at the Mount Polley Mine broke and released massive amounts of water and silt.The situation has been portrayed in James Keller's article "Mount Polley Mine Spill: First Nations Health Officials to Start Salmon Testing" published in the Huffington Post.
Einleitung
Thema
Autor, Titel
The contaminated water spread down to Quesnel Lake and many other lakes and creeks. Therefore, government officials forbade bathing, drinking and fishing for a short amount of time. Tests were initiated, that found levels of contaminants but, as government officials stated, within government guidelines. That is why province denied any health danger to both humans and aquatic life and encouraged fishing again.
In spite of it all, Chiefs of William Lake Band and Soda Creek Band stopped fishing although having season of salmon fishing. The First Nation People highly doubted the government's statement. All in all, the situation is a catastrophe for them because they are not able to go fishing and cure salmon and other fish for the winter.
Being sceptical of official information, they started their own investigation concerning the contamination of water and salmon. Environmental groups and scientists from the University of Northern British Columbia supported their investigation and suggested that contamination might spread further due to salmon migration.
The government's guarantees were considered premature and rash while the provincial government still detected an outflow of water and debris and the mining company blocked the leakage by building temporary dykes to block more tailings from the leaking out.
Hauppteil
Further, the company declared that the water is almost of drinking-water quality and by doing so, gave little weight to the First Nation's fears. In addition they declined all interviews.

The text "Mount Polley Mine Spill: First Nations Health Officials to Start Salmon Testing" by James Keller is a newspaper article that was published 2014 in the Huffington Post. It is supposed to inform about the accident at the Imperial Metals Mount Polley Mine that lead to a massive leakage of contaminants spreading into many ponds and lakes.
Einleitung
Titel, Autor, Testsorte,
Thema
The journalist James Keller stays most of the time neutral. He is only hinting occasionally at his opinion, as can be seen in the contrast he creates between the First Nations opposing government and mining company by corralating quotes of each side with one another.
Hauptteil

Aufbau
Keller presents the First Nation as the most seriously affected. He underlines the high "importance of fish to the substince of First Nation people" (Text, line 29) giving voice to their fears and concerns, e.g. in line 14: "People are paranoid and they have every reason to be" and line 16 to 17 "The timing of it is catastrophic for our people. Right now, everybody would be preparing their fish for the winter, but that has not been done.".
In contrast, Keller states the government's opinion saying that "[t]here is currently no indication that the discharges […] would have an immediate impact to those consuming the fish" (Text, line 26-28). In comparison with the earlier highlighted fears, the government's statement appears like it is suppose to soothe and silence the First Nation people rather then to pay attention to their reasonable concerns.
Further, Keller gives the First Nation people more room to the elaboration of their opinion and the oppinions supporting them. In this context, the author quotes an equatic ecologist aiding them with her sound view and emphasizing that the government's statement of allowing fishing in the pons and rivers is too premature (cf. Text, line 46-48). This stands in stark contrast to the government's officials since no specializing in their part concerning the topic is mentioned. Also, because the "federal Department of Fisheries and Oceans issued a notice […] closing the recreational salmon fishery […] but [without including in] the fishing ban […] the First Nations" (Text, line 35- 37). Stating this, Keller emphasizes the ill-treatment of the government towards the First Nation. The last line expresses the government's indifference and gives the reader the impression that there is much more to the situation than the government is ready to lay on the line (cf. Text, line 65). In addition, this is supported by the author adding that Imperial Metals was not available for an interview ( cf. Text, line 58). This adds to the indiffernce shown towards the First Nation and gives the impression that Imperial Metals is uncooperative.


First Nation
versus
Regierung











Ungerechtigkeit gegenüber den First Nations
Mostly, Keller uses a neutral language but terms like "fears" (Text, line 2), "paranoid" (Text, line 14) and "catastrophic" (Text, line 16) are used to emotionalize the reader in favor of the First Nations. Keller evokes sympathy for the affected people, who are being robbed of their traditional winter provision. Also, his language is informative and seldomly rating and criticising, e.g. when he reproaches Imperial Metals for "downplay[ing] the risks" (Text, line 38). The terms "almost drinking-water quality" (Text, line 39-40) and referring to the waste as being "relatively benign" (Text, line 40) sounds rather ironic and like an understatement. Again, the reader is led to emphasize with the First Nations and to doubt the statements of the government and of Imperial Metal.
Sprache
Although Keller uses a neutral and objective style of writing it is clear that he supports the First Nations. The underlying tone of his article is a criticism of the indifferent behavior of the government.

Dear Honourable Minister Catherine McKenna,
Datum

Anrede

We address you, as members of Greenpeace Youth Canada, British Columbia branch, because we have high hopes that you will listen to us and you will arrange for suitable measures to be taken.
One year ago, our province was hit by an environmental disaster when the Imperial Metals-owned Mount Polley mine tailings pond broke releasing its water and silt with years worth mining waste and spreading into many lakes and ponts surrounding Polley Lake.
Mine safety experts and media articles have called the spill one of the biggest environmental disasters in modern Canadian history. As a result, bathing, drinking water and fishing in the lakes has become quite impossible. Once, the landscape of Mount Polley was beautiful hosting many animals. Now, it is a lifeless, ecologicaly destroyed moonscape.
The lakes and ponds of British Columbia always offered an attractive home for both animals and humans. The rich watersheds and their salmon harvest sustain local fishing enterprises and Alaska Native and First Nations communities. Native peoples have harvested salmon and caribou from these watersheds for generations, and continue to rely on such harvests today. But since the environmental disaster caused by Imperial Metal many First nation peoples are facing fundamental problems and cannot fish as they need to do. The lakes are contaminated and the fish population is either sick or declining.
Einleitung
Bezug zum Artikel



Hauptteil
British Columbia’s government initially insisted that the dam failure was not an environmental disaster, a position that was later reversed. At first, the government downplayed the concerns of the First Nations and didn't iniate anything to act against the catastrophic desaster. In addition, after many investigations it is clear now that Imperial Metals already had a history of operating the pond beyond capacity since at least 2011.
We, the members of Greenpeace Youth Canada in British Columbia appeall to you to take measures against the mining industry that constantly crosses the line. Please, take actions and initiate more control!
Appell
Our landscape and our health needs to be protected. Among, the pollution caused by the mining industry uncountable pesticide poisonings occur every year. Beyond the acute poisonings, there are long-term, chronic health effects such as cancer, asthma, birth defects and neurological harms. Again, it is the industry that is crossing the line without regard to losses. Taking strict measures in favor of a healthy, safe, and fair food system would protect us all as well as the economic needs of farmers, farmworkers and consumers. Shifting away from reliance on dangerous pesticides is a key step toward this goal.
weiteres Beispiel:
Einsatz von Pestiziden
So we from Greenpeace Youth Canada urge you, Minister McKenna, to give an unmistakable signal to those who pollute our environment. Let the mining and farming companies know that they are responsible for their actions. Polluting the environment must be punished. It is in our hands to protect animals and the environment. We need to start valuing our nature and this is also related to politics!

Sincerely yours.
Ricky Highbird,
for Greenpeace Youth Cananda, B.C.
