BC Liberal statement on Mining Month 2021

CRANBROOK (May 3, 2021) – Kootenay East MLA Tom Shypitka, Official Opposition Critic for Energy, Mines and Low Carbon Innovation, has issued the following statement welcoming Mining Month 2021 on behalf of the BC Liberal Caucus:

“Mining is a cornerstone of our provincial economy and this month is an opportunity for people of all ages to learn more about the industry, ranging from the MineralsEd Virtual Scavenger Hunt to special sessions on diversity, inclusion and the advancement of women in mining.

“British Columbia is also widely acknowledged to be one of the most progressive jurisdictions on a global scale as mining will play a critical role in the transition to a cleaner and lower carbon future.

“Mining companies are active in all corners of our province and directly employ thousands of British Columbians, and create even more indirect jobs for suppliers and other support workers.

“The significance of mining to our provincial economy is the reason why we celebrate Mining Month 2021 in British Columbia.”
