| Last Updated: August 14, 2017 6:00 AM PDT Inks Lake south of Kamloops would be used for storage water collected from a tailings facility at the proposed Ajax copper-gold mine at Kamloops. The open-pit Ajax copper-gold mine is proposed for a site near Inks Lake south of Kamloops. TBA / PROVINCE A Kamloops community group opposed to mining firm KGHM’s proposed Ajax mine wants the Interior Health Authority to issue a protection order preventing possible water contamination from the facility on the argument an environmental assessment of the project was inadequate. The University of Victoria Environmental Law Centre plans to file filing an application with the Kamloops Public Health Unit Monday requesting the unit’s drinking water officer issue a prevention order regarding potential hazards from the project on behalf of the Kamloops Area Preservation Association.

Rolling Stone's Matt Taibbi has witnessed many of Donald Trump's rallies and speeches, but the president's performance Tuesday night in Phoenix, Arizona—delivered as hundreds of protestors crowded the streets demanding "Mr. Hate" to leave their state—was the "craziest" yet.

"This Trump speech is like something out of a psychopathology textbook." 
—Matt Taibbi, Rolling Stone

"Trump," Taibbi wrote, was in "full delusion-mode" throughout the evening, fuming to the delight of his supporters in the crowd about the media's focus on his defense of white supremacist violence, railing against states moving to take down Confederate statues, and accusing news outlets of "turning off live feedsbecause they're afraid of his words."

The president also floated the possibility of a government shutdown if Congress refuses to authorize funds for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, and claimed that former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio—who last month was found guilty of criminal contempt for ignoring a court order demanding that his department stop racially profiling Latinos—was "just doing his job."

"This Trump speech is like something out of a psychopathology textbook," Taibbi concluded.

Others shared Taibbi's assessment, denouncing on social media and in aghast statements the "unhinged," "hostile," and "incoherent" nature of Trump's campaign-style rally.
