Canada’s Toxic Secret Documentary

I collaborated on an investigation about Sarnia’s Chemical Valley that was a collaborative effort between multiple journalists in Canada, from Global News, the Toronto Star, the National Observer and four journalism schools at Concordia, Ryerson, Regina and UBC.

I helped research and fact check several aspects of the investigation, led a group that transcribed 20+ interviews, helped set up shoots and anything else that was needed. I helped to organize and execute our documentary recreations, succeeding in location scouting, gathering props and recruiting volunteers to act.

The documentary, Canada’s Toxic Secret, is embedded within the full article here.

After the documentary aired on October 14, the Minister of Environment committed to funding a study to determine the health impacts of industry in Sarnia.
