Toxic Tour — Free Bus to Sarnia August 21, 2016

August 16th, 2016

The Toxic Tour is an opportunity to visit Chemical Valley and learn about the pollution that citizens of Aamjiwnaang First Nation live with every day.

This year’s Toxic Tour will be different than previous years in that the tours will take place on buses with volunteer tour guides who will share in-depth information about various facilities, chemicals, and community impacts. There will also be a variety of workshops and sessions running throughout the day!

More info:

Aamjiwnaang First Nation is located in the middle of Sarnia’s Chemical Valley, the most polluted place in North America, according to National Geographic. The reserve is encircled by over 73 high-emitting facilities such as petrochemical refineries and various factories. The toxic operations and regular chemical releases are poisoning people in the community which faces high rates of asthma, cancer, miscarriages, stillbirths, and endocrine disruptions.

The fact that an Indigenous community is being sacrificed for corporate profit and nothing is being done to protect community members is a clear sign of Environmental Racism.

Support grassroots groups raising awareness and trying to stop further contamination of the community’s people and territory!
