Toxic legacy of Giant Mine found in snowshoe hares – The Narwhal

We need to be very concerned about the real prospect of stranded liabilities associated with the exploitation of the tarsands in Alberta and Saskatchewan.

Any of the existing tailings lakes would likely make the Giant Mine look like a kindergarten exercise if left to be dealt with post bankruptcy.
