“MKO is concerned about the safety of the mine in Thompson, however, we are assured through our partnership with Vale. We know the company is working to protect the safety of citizens, our land, and our waterways,” stated Grand Chief Garrison Settee. “We will continue to work closely with Vale to do what we can to protect the well-being of our neighbours in Thompson.”
