Canada court clears way for Guatemalan protesters
Another roadblock has been lifted for seven protesters hurt outside a Guatemalan mine who want to pursue a lawsuit in British Columbia against a company registered in the province.
The Supreme Court of Canada refused Thursday to hear a challenge from Tahoe Resources about the venue for the civil claim.
The men launched their claim in B.C. Supreme Court against Tahoe Resources after security guards sprayed protesters with rubber bullets outside the Escobal mine in 2013.
