some of us that read canadian newspapers every day knew about this a long time ago. of course nothing like this ever happens with the merkin coal mining companies in the south eastern excited states.in any event,it's all irrelevent[sic] to the mining industry in general.

I do know a bit about the mining industry in Mexico. In fact, the last 4 days I was helping with a geological survey in the mountains just east of Manzanillo. The guides were paid between $500 and $1000 pesos per day. They are really hopeful that some mining company comes and provides some steady employment for the area.

Exactly.
I'm not bashing Canadian mining companies in particular,mining companies everywhere have historically had very poor track records.They are exploiters,nothing more.Like pedro said,they're gold diggers in every sense of the word.
Think Cananea,think coal mines in the US,think gold and diamond mines in Africa,etc,etc..
It's just an industry whose pratices are hard to defend in my opinion, which is why I took exception to Semalu's attempt to promote it's virtues.

Once any business becomes a corporation with stock holders, ethics go out the window. Bless the mom and pop's and the family owned business though. With them everyone can expect a fair shake and seldom be disappointed.

I guess I just don't understand your reasoning,are you saying that mining can't be done without exploiting the miners and the comunities where they extract the minerals from,without implementing safety procedures,without polluting the enviornment?
It's all about the bottom line,period.

My whole point was that you and some others were making broad brushed statements that mining had no positive financial impact on Mexico and that Canadian mining companies were corrupt. You based this on a few stories that you found on the internet. I say that this is total BS and that mining has had huge financial gains (positives) for Mexico and that most of the Canadian mining companies here are doing it correctly.

Then you went on to trash most mining.

I said where would you be without mining?

Not once have I commented on mining practices. Don't twist things.

I thought we settled the issue of you insulting Americans. If it weren't for the sacrifices made by Americans and our Canadian brothers, DPs like you would have wound up toasted in Nazi concentration camps. I wish I could have met my uncle, who died in Belgium fighting for your freedom. I wish I could take back my own family's participation in the displaced persons program, which brought scum like you to the U.S. and Canada. You're an ungrateful son of a bitch.
unlike you i am following the rules of this board. i have addressed this in the octagon. my grandfather was toasted in auschwitz as you so kindly put it

Well go ahead then. A couple of your articles are about the same mining company and the same incidents. No doubt some of these companies are unscrupulous. One of your articles is from something called "The Truth" and another from something called "Rabble". Where is Fox News when you need them....??? One of your articles does point out that there are over 200 Canadian mining companies in Mexico.

When it comes to injustice in foreign lands Canada doesn't hold a candle to the United States. The good ol' U.S goes to war for national (corporate) interests, always have, always will. And you will never see Canada start a war or even engineer a coup. They're too nice. Come to think of it the Canadian mining interests probably interned under the big multinational American mining corps. That kind of behavior has to be learned. jajajaja

Chiapas may be a small state but it has huge potential for mines and I have a list of all the concessions for explotation and exploration . Men from a village asked me to explain to them the difference between explotation and exploration. From their questions I can tell they were not aware of the difference between the 2 and they also were not aware that accords had been signed  which they should have been since these things are first discussed and approved in a general assembly of the men in the village.
As I said before they have the right to prevent the companies to enter their territories but this great nasty disputes and often murders between the various parties.
Here is a another interesting link re the mines in Chiapas. please note that the Canadian companis are in business with Mexican corporations so the Canadians are not the only guilty party.
