About: Flathead Coal Mining

haha, true enough! However, I am afraid that I would never get a free moment if I tried posting updates regarding BC's latest decisions on the Flathead. As well, my intent was never to keep this updated, hopefully anyone who stumbles upon this video will do a bit more research to find out what the status of these fossil fuel extraction projects is?,,,,,
Dude, you should update this information. It's old. The "proposed Lodgepole Open Pit Coal Mine" is no longer proposd, it's been cancelled! :D But, the Flathead Valley still needs to be protected. We need to turn it into a National Park before logging and mining destroys it! :O it's still in danger!!!!
