El contraproducente modelo minero canadiense

Las sociedades mineras del mundo encuentran en Canadá una legislación fiscal y judicial favorable para sus operaciones de explotación en todo el mundo.

Ciudadanos, ecologistas y organizaciones sociales están preocupados por los impactos sociales y medioambientales de la explotación minera que realizan las multinacionales canadienses en América Latina y África.

Las multinacionales encuentran en la Bolsa de Valores de Toronto una plataforma ideal para monitorear proyectos mineros que se realizan alrededor del mundo. Las operaciones mineras canadienses representan el 36 % del capital minero mundial.

La minería es una de las actividades productivas más contaminantes. El 60 % de las empresas mineras de exploración y explotación del planeta están registradas en el mercado financiero canadiense.
