A DINT IN THE WALL OF CANADIAN IMPUNITY FOR CANADIAN MINING COMPANIES
ECUADORANS SUE CANADIAN MINING COMPANY & TORONTO STOCK EXCHANGE:
MARCH 25TH - A GOOD DAY TO GO TO A PUBLIC HEARING IN COURT
Some Toronto lawyers are bringing a civil suit against the Toronto Stock Exchange and Directors of the Copper Mesa mining company.
A recent, award winning documentary film by Malcolm Rugge – “Under Rich Earth” (www.underrichearth.com) - tells the story of farmers in a remote valley in Ecuador who unite to stop a Canadian mining company – Copper Mesa - from exploring on their land. Three of the main subjects in Under Rich Earth are suing the mining company, the Toronto Stock Exchange and two of the company directors in the Ontario Superior Court.
The three plaintiffs, Marcia Ramírez, Polivio Pérez and Israel Pérez will be in Toronto on March 25th for an important court hearing. The hearing is open to the public. This could be a great opportunity to show your support for global victims of the Canadian mining industry.
