Program Title: G20 Toxic Tour of Toronto
Description: Environmental justice organizers guided a tour through Toronto to expose institutions most responsible for the environmental and social impacts of Canada's extractive industries both at home and abroad. Canada is home to 75% of the world's mining and exploration companies, making it a global leader in this industry. Canada's place within the G8 nations is largely due to the exploitation of Indigenous peoples, their lands and rural poor for mining, tar sands and oil and gas exploitation. Speaking before the tour were several community organizers who told the crowd about the effects of climate change in their communities.
