I keep reading over and over that the opponents of the proposed Ajax mine are only the older, retired citizens of Kamloops.
I strongly oppose this mine and I am 36 years old.
My husband, friends and relatives who are all around my age also oppose this mine.
Many young people, teenagers and college students have commented on my Stop Ajax Mine bumper sticker, saying they are against this mine as well.
Unfortunately, we are all busy either working, raising children, or going to school, which makes it more difficult for us to attend the protests and demonstrations.
I applaud all those who are sticking their necks (and faces) out to voice our opposition.
If they have more time to do so because they are retired, then good for them.
They are representing many, many people in Kamloops, not just a specific demographic.
Thank you to all who are tirelessly fighting this atrocity of a proposal!
There are more people than you know supporting you!
