    In Mexico a Canadian firm is flouting a federal court ruling to stop mining for gold.

    The company, New Gold, says locals support their work because it provides employment, but some residents in a nearby community are concerned about the effects the mining has on the town and the environment.

    Al Jazeera's Franc Contreras reports from the town of Cerro San Pedro in Mexico.
