Canada's Chemical Valley

In this video, many concerns and topics were raised such as the pollution in Sarnia and Aamjiwnaang. The petrochemical industry in Sarnia is affecting the first nations due its factories which are basically in their backyards. Sarnia has the worst air in all of Canada which is something in itself, but these factories have had spills and leaks which have affected not just adults, but even children.


My solution would be just to take extra precautions and have these companies put in extra money to create a safer environment. Many people have already tried providing this solution, but these rich companies still aren’t willing to put in the money. Knowing this, I wouldn’t really know what else to do if these companies aren’t willing to listen.

Honestly this is really sad. I can’t imagine living in a place where air isn’t even air, and instead it’s poisonous chemical smog. It’s like having a chemical filled factory in your backyard and having no one doing anything about. This is a serious issue that has to be dealt as soon as possible. It’s not just affecting the first nations but everyone in Sarnia.
