Mount Polley from the eyes of an environmentalist

When a tailings pond at a mine in British Columbia broke it’s dam, everyone wondered what the environmental impact might be.  The pond spilled in to a salmon bearing stream, what kind of impact would the spill have on what scientists were calling the largest salmon run in recorded history?

David Suzuki is without a doubt, the most well known environmental activist in Canada, perhaps even in North America.  He recently wrote an op-ed on HuffPost Canada, giving his impact on the rare occurrence that is Mount Polley.
