Imperial Metals Poisoning the Water, Poisoning the Salmon
CBC reports one arrest and others forcibly removed from Imperial Metals' annual conference at the Coquitlam Executive Plaza Hotel today in Vancouver B.C.
Indigenous groups say they are protesting the event to draw attention to the clean up of the Mount Polley tailings pond spill. 
Kanahus Manuel said protesters were aiming to speak directly to Imperial Metals' leaders about ongoing mining projects on Indigenous land. 
"We're going to Imperial Metals to let the executives and shareholders, the people making the decisions about going onto our territory, know that these investments are very high risk and very uncertain projects to be investing in."
"They're going into some of the most sacred places that we have, our most sacred headwaters and our glaciers."
