"The Canadian Mining company Sherrit International has long been extracting Nickel from Cuba's Holguin province and transporting it to Canada for processing. I have information that the chemical by-products--the toxic waste--is then returned to Cuba and dumped on her land and waters in exchange for dollars. The Canadians thus save huge sums of money in circumventing Canada's environmental laws for the processing of toxic waste. I'm unaware of any other government (except Cuba's) that engages in such environmental prostitution. The damage done to Cuba, her people, and her future generations is incalcuable. I'm sure that the Canadians complicit in this crime as partners with the Cuban dictatorship will have to answer--not only morally--but also legally, when Cuba re-establishes the rule of law."
"Some experts (emphasis by intransigent poster) say Fidel Castro's environmental policies may be among his greatest achievements."
"I think the Cuban government can take a substantial amount of credit for landscape, flora, and fauna preservation," said Jennifer Gebelein, a professor at (you are not going to believe where she professes!) Florida International University in Miami who studies environmental issues in Cuba. "

(Sherritt) has given money to a former CIA and State Department employee, Phil Peters, to advance its interests. The money to Peters goes through contributions to the Lexington Institute, where Peters is a Vice-President. Because the Lexington Institute is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, there is no public record of Sherritt’s funding. This has allowed Peters to advise and direct the Working Group in ways beneficial to Sherritt while presenting himself to the Group as an objective think-tank scholar with a specialization in Cuba."
