Students do their own video on Ajax plan

LETTER — Recently, KGHM Ajax released a promotional video titled: “The Ajax Project – The Conversation”. It is 2:34 minutes long with beautiful scenic pictures of Kamloops and some supporters talking about the benefits of the project.

LYesterday, while searching the Internet for some other material, I accidentally came across another video on the topic. This video is also 2:35 minutes long. There are no scenic pictures in the video.

Four young inspiring high school students talk about the possible economic, health and environmental costs of the project. These young students did this as a project in their Socials 11 class.

Below the video they state: “If you live in BC, please share this video with people you know to get the message out! Thanks for watching!”

I would like to share this video with the community:

    Furthermore, it is worth mentioning that the high school students’ video was released on March 4th, 2014 before KGHM Ajax released their video.

    Kudos to the four students for expressing their opinion on the risks associated with the project and also kudos to the high school teacher for engaging the students to explore such local important issues. Bravo.
