A tailings dam breached at the Mount Polley gold and copper mine in British Columbia yesterday and has dumped toxic sludge into the Quesnel drainage, a tributary of the Fraser River. The sockeye salmon will soon show up and there could be trouble ahead for them as they negotiate the impacted section on their way to the spawning grounds.
