"I ’m not here to say don’t worry, be happy, everything is great, we’re wonderful, we never make mistakes because you know we do. We had a huge mistake last year at Mount Polley, but we are responsible. We do a good job. Our standards and our processes are more or less the same as Alaska, is what the state folks have told us. So, we don’t have low standards and we do care not only about our environment, but we care about yours, and that’s the central message I have."

British Columbia Mines Minister Bill Bennett, in a speech before the Ketchikan Chamber of Commerce on his last day of a five-day trip to Alaska to develop an agreement with state officials on monitoring water quality and mining operations.
