Ajax mine survey

Posted by on Oct 9, 2013 in At Issue | 0 comments

Kamloops Voters’ Society launches Ajax mine survey The Kamloops Voters’ Society has launched an online survey about the proposed Ajax mine. The survey can be filled out online at www.kamloopsvoterssociety.ca. The deadline for responses is October 14. Only one response per city household is allowed ( per IP address). As reported in the Kamloops Daily News, the group wants to remain neutral on the mine issue. While they can’t afford a scientific survey, board members are hoping for widespread participation.

It takes about 3 min. to fill out the survey. Three min. of your time – here’s a chance to make a difference! Please send this message on to your friends to make that difference even...
