Inquirer.net reports that the Conference on Mining’s Impact on the Philippine Economy and Ecology was held at the Hotel InterContinental in Makati City on Friday, March 2. Among the speakers were Regina Paz "Gina" L. Lopez, who is the managing director of the ABS-CBN Foundation Inc. and TV5 boss Manuel V. Pangilinan, who is also the chairman of Philex Mining Corp.

 

The anti-mining Lopez and the pro-mining Pangilinan clashed during the open forum. Lopez disagreed with Pangilinan’s argument that "nothing else could be done" in the places that were picked for mining activities. She said, "I just want to say that maybe that place may be nice and I submit it may be nice. When you make a statement that all the areas where there's gonna be mining is ugly anyway that's the point." Pangilinan countered by saying, "I did not say that! Now you're lying."

 

The report noted that netizens pointed out the Lopez-Pangilinan encounter was "more exciting" than the impeachment trial of Chief Justice Renato Corona.
