I was living in Elmira when the water was contaminated with a carcinogen. We knew there was a chemical company on the east side of town, but we didn't know what they had buried in the ground. In one year alone, in 1969, they buried 2.5 million gallons of dioxin contaminated waste in the ground, as Elmira was one of nine manufacturing sites for Agent Orange during the American war in Vietnam. There are hot spots of dioxin in the sediment of the creek that runs into the Grand River, a drinking water source for 800,000 people in southern Ontario. This film features the music and interviews of people who lived in Elmira during the crisis.
