Canada on Wednesday blocked Glencore Plc’s proposed coal mine project in British Columbia, citing significant environmental damage.

“After careful deliberation, the Government of Canada has determined the significant adverse environmental effects of the proposed Sukunka Coal Mine Project, an open-pit metallurgical coal mine located near Tumbler Ridge, British Columbia, could not be mitigated,” the government said.
