What Matters In Our Valley is a group of local citizens who share a deep commitment to the conservation of our rivers, water, fish, wildlife, air and the quality of life in this exceptional area. We were founded in 2017 out of concern about the proposed Telkwa Coal Mine.
The provincial government is now accepting comments from the public on Telkwa (Tenas) Coal's application for an environmental certificate.
Get the latest on how the mine proposal is progressing
What does it mean for water? fish? caribou? our communities?
Public comment period now open!
On April 19th, 2022 Randal Macnair gave a talk at the Della Herman Theatre about his community's experience living with coal mine impacts in the Elk Valley. It is a must see!
