BWCA Protection

At the risk of sounding political, the Trump administration is circumventing the EPA and courts to approve mining leases on public land bordering BWCA. This is despite all the scientific studies, public outcry, court orders and due processes to the contrary. He is making public input possible only over the holidays before ramming these leases through a purely cosmetic approval process. If you're on this board, you need to step up to protect this rare gem. The type of mines being forced on the public are not only foreign owned, but have NEVER been operated and closed without an ecological disaster.

This is not a political issue. The political and environmental periods have been performed and Trump is using his power to override guidelines and processes that have already happened. Please don't make this a political discussion. Even if I whole heartedly agreed with the economic arguments for allowing the BWCA to be eventually ruined, I would not want our legal and democratic processes to be discarded, overridden on a whim.

To make your voice heard, please refer to the Save the Boundary Waters website where you'll find a link to submit your comments for public input savetheboundarywaters.org

Thanks for your support.
