Voisey's Bay Nickel Company (VBNC) Refuses Site Access to MiningWatch Canada

From October 22-27, Mel Quevillon visited one of MiningWatch Canada's founding members, the Innu Nation, in Sheshatshiu, Labrador.

Despite an attempt to visit the Voisey's Bay site in its construction phase, Voisey's Bay Nickel Company (VBNC) was unwilling to have her on site. Members and staff of the Innu Nation were, however, very welcoming and hospitable and she was able to meet with many people as they settle into their new roles implementing the Impact-Benefit Agreement recently signed with VBNC.
