You must have been at the wrong gym then, because there was a thousand people there and the Polymet supporters outnumbered the granola's by 50-1. And the Range DFL politicians are in 100% support of Polymet. So there's the proof in the pudding for all you nay-sayers. This thing is getting permitted and construction will start this year.
You obvioulsy have never seen the area they plan on mining, it already is a brown area. You silly people think its all rivers and beautiful trees everywhere. As far as jobs from the nugget, not only are most of the employees from the local area, but so are the contractors working there, I know because I have been there working myself. So stop spreading your lies. Polymet will get their permits and everyone will make some money and that's the bottom line!!
