Fisheries committee  There are about 200 active mines. Canada is a very wet country, and in parts of the north you find more water than there is land. I think you would find that pretty well all human activities in Canada affect the water, not just mining.

Fisheries committee  It's only about a half dozen. It's not a lot, but for these projects, it's.... In particular, in the one example we gave you, they have redone it already, but they'd have to redo it a second time.
