Land protectors not letting their guard down over mining on sacred site

The head of Nova Scotia’s mining association says he’s only trying to get a conversation started about mineral extraction in the province.

Sean Kirby is lobbying to get mining on Kluscap mountain – a sacred site for Mi’kmaq people in the province.

And while the province says it has no intention of opening up the sacred Mi’kmaq area, land defenders say they’re not letting their guard down.
