Baker Lake Council thanks Agnico Eagle Mines

18 November 2019

Open letter to Agnico Eagle Mines
On behalf of the Council and the residents of the Municipality of Baker Lake, we would like to extend thanks to Agnico-Eagle Mines Inc. for their continued cooperation and assistance with the community’s ongoing efforts of managing and cleaning the Baker Lake Landfill of contaminated items. A total of 32 sea-cans of various materials were removed from the community including Hazmat materials, used tires and scrap metal and sent to recycling and dangerous goods disposal sites in Southern Canada. Without the help of Agnico-Eagle, these and other contaminants would continue to cause damage to our fragile environment for many years to come.
Thank you Agnico-Eagle, for your generous assistance to the community of Baker Lake.
Regards, Hamlet Council of Baker Lake
