Analyze Mine Disaster results

The collapse of the Imperial Metals tailing pond into Quesnel Lake is the biggest mining disaster ever.  1/4 of the Fraser sockeye rear in this lake, people drink the water, wildlife depends on it. When the BC government announced the water was safe to drink mere days after the accident, I decided non-government tests should be done, because we know arsenic, mercury, cadmium, cobalt and other toxic heavy metals were in that tailing pond.  I traveled to the site, took samples and now need the funds to analyze them and produce a report completely independent of government.  The BC government claims to be business-friendly, but this was not good for the mining industry, employees, residents, First Nations, fishermen, children exposed to the water, salmon or anyone or anything. Everyone seemed to know this was going to happen and government just sat by and let hell break-loose into BC's most prolific salmon-rearing habitat. They cannot be trusted to reveal their own negligence. Please consider pitching in to get a second opinion on whether the Imperial Metals tailing pond effluent is indeed safe to drink and low impact for salmon.  Then we can move on to make government clean this up.  Thank you, Alexandra Morton
