Profits from Loss: Joan Kuyek on the Company Behind Sisson

Details

Joan Kuyek will share the results of her investigation of Hunter Dickinson Inc. (HDI), the company behind the Sisson mine proposed to be built in the Nashwaak watershed on unceded Wolastoq territory. The long-term outcomes of HDI projects have not been good news for investors, for communities, for governments or for the environment.

Two talks:

In Stanley/Cross Creek, Tuesday, April 24 at 7:00pm at the Upper Nashwaak Lion’s Club

In Fredericton, Wednesday, April 25 at 7:00pm at Conserver House, 180 Saint John St.

A founder of MiningWatch Canada, Dr. Joan Kuyek is a long-time analyst and advocate for mine-affected communities in Canada and abroad. Joan has decades of experience with community economic development. She chairs Ontarians for a Just Accountable Mineral Strategy and teaches at Carleton University. She is the author of two books on community organizing. She holds an honorary doctorate from Laurentian University.

Presented by: Friends of the Nashwaak Watershed, Conservation Council of New BrunswickNashwaak Watershed Association Inc. & MiningWatch Canada.
