We cannot allow the coal and other mining industries to damage our fishing industry. We export fish and fish need clean, undamaged habitat to survive. It has been proven the world over, time and time again, that the coal and other mining industries cannot mine without causing catastrophic damage to the environment -- all environments they're in, whichever environment they are in, ours included. No matter what they say, it hasn't been done and won't be done here now.
We cannot afford to take any chances. Our lives depend on it. We must "just say no." No Chuitna, No Pebble!
