Injustice in Canada’s Chemical Valley

March 06th, 2017

Having completed her doctoral dissertation at the University of Ottawa, Sarah Wiebe penned Everyday Exposure:Indigenous Mobilization and Environmental Justice in Canada’s Chemical Valley (UBC Press $32.95) about the devastating health issues suffered by the Aamjiwnaang First Nation near Sarnia, Ontario, home to one of Canada’s densest concentrations of chemical manufacturing plants. The Aamjiwnaang have long expressed concern over declining male birth rates and high rates of miscarriages, asthma, cancer and cardiovascular illness. Wiebe documents this as well as the systemic injustices the First Nation continues to face in their fight for environmental injustice. 978-0-7748-3264-9
