MADISON (WKOW) -- The chairman of the Bad River Band of Lake Superior Chippewa promises an "all-out effort" to fight a planned iron ore mine just north of its reservation in Wisconsin.
Bad River chairman Mike Wiggins, Jr. joined leaders from other tribes at a Thursday news conference at the Capitol to once again speak out against a bill that would clear the way for an iron ore mine near Lake Superior. During the news conference, the state Assembly debated the bill one floor down in the Capitol.
Wiggins said tribal members "stand ready to fight and resist this effort to the bitter end until the mining company goes away."
Wiggins promises "active resistance" that includes filing lawsuits.
