Joan Newman Kuyek has been the National Co-ordinator of Mining Watch Canada – a pan-Canadian coalition of environmental, labour, social justice and Aboriginal groups – since its inception in April 1999. She has a long history as an adult educator and community development practitioner. She founded and organized two community development corporations in Sudbury, and has worked for The Church and the Economic Crisis Project of the United Church of Canada, the World Council of Churches and for the Sudbury Community Legal Clinic. In 1995, her community work was recognized with an honorary doctorate of Social Work from Laurentian University.
Marilyn Crawford has been working for the past 6 years on issues related to staking of mining claims and exploration. Her main focus has been the Ontario’s Mining Act and the system of ‘free entry’ that affords privileges and rights to enter, occupy and use lands in search of minerals. Marilyn works with Bedford Mining Alert, the Community Coalition Against Mining Uranium and is co-chair of MiningWatch Canada.
