An international human rights body has agreed to hear from Southeast Alaska tribes concerned about cross-border pollution. Tribes and First Nations want more protection from British Columbia’s mining sector that’s active in transboundary watersheds.
Lt. Gov. Mallot was in Sitka recently (3-21-18) to hear the concerns some king trollers have about ADF&G's role in renegotiating the Pacific Salmon Treaty with Canada. While acknowledging that Alaska has been disadvantaged in the past, Mallott supports the state's treaty negotiating team.
