41:00 min mark Robyn Allan – The BC government is enabling a dangerous disregard for environmental monitoring, reporting and protection among mining companies by letting them off the hook for the full costs of environmental reclamation – leaving taxpayers liable for more than $1.5 billion, a new report shows. The Union of BC Indian Chiefs has released an in-depth study days after a scathing report by Auditor General Carol Bellringer detailed a damning failure of the province’s environment monitoring of mines and failure to ensure companies are liable for the cost of accidents and remediation. Author of the study – economist Robyn Allan. @robynallan @UBCIC
