Reject Teck Part 1: Who is Teck?!
This week reporter Elizabeth Dowdell sat down with the co-founder of Indigenous Climate Action (ICA), Eriel Tchekwie Deranger, to talk about the proposed Teck Frontier Mine project and the reasons ICA is opposed to it.
This week on Terra Informa we share the first part of an interview with Eriel Deranger, Executive Director and co-founder of Indigenous Climate Action, one of the organizations behind Reject Teck. Reject Teck a grassroots campaign challenging the Teck Frontier oilsands project and the Canadian government, that has made headlines at COP25, Fire Drill Fridays, and in other news. Eriel has a lot of knowledge to share about the Teck project, the larger resource development process in Canada and Alberta, and organizing to protect the environment and take climate action.
Update: As of February 23, 2020, the Teck Resources Ltd has withdrawn the Frontier mine project from the environmental assessment approval process.
