Calgary Mining Company Says It Was 'In No Way Involved' In Murder Of Vocal Environmentalist In Mexico

"Canadian mining firm at centre of Mexican murder probe"
Globe & Mail

CALGARY–"A Canadian mine in Mexico has been shut down over environmental concerns, while new details are emerging about how three men arrested in the death of a vocal anti-mining activist are connected to the Calgary firm.

The temporary closure of the Blackfire Exploration mine, revealed by a government official Tuesday, is another twist in a case some say symbolizes the anger of local people who feel Canadian companies are destroying their pristine ancestral land for profit."
