Environmental devastation is most often felt by marginalized people. In Canada that means Indigenous, Blacks and other people of colour. The pattern has - and continues - to repeat itself. It is environmental racism. It's blatant and systemic.

Professor Ingrid Waldron will share with us her work on this issue that led to an award- winning book and a documentary by actor Ellen Page. The film went on to be highlighted at TIFF and now can be found on Netflix.

Moderated by Kween, Executive Director for Guelph Black Heritage Society.
