With the coming of the steel plant at the beginning of the century, areas near the plant in the centre of Sydney were to pay a heavy price for the promise of employment. Since the Second World War, attempts to deal with the excesses of industrialization have proved to be not only costly but virtually unworkable for a constantly changiong series of owners. Today, the people of Frederick Street,and the surrounding community of Whitney Pier, face the end of their commu nity and the constant threat of illness and disease." - from the dj.

HarperCollins, Toronto, 2000, ISBN:000638529x 
BARLOW, Maude. Frederick Street : Life and Death on Canada's Love Canal. (Toronto : HarperCollins, 2000). First Printing Trade Paperback. Pp (12),1-227,(1) + 8 pages of plates. 8vo, ill. card covers. "How did an estuary that was once a pristine body of water become a cesspool containing 700,00 tons of toxic sludge, a site 35 times worse than the infamous Love Canal? 'Frederick Street' tells for the first time the compelling story of a once-beautiful area where 100 years ago the Mi'kmaq lived and fished and early settlers enjoyed the bounty of the ocean. Above all, thogh, it's a story about people -- ordinary working-class people who fight to preserve their dignity, to overcome ill-informed bureaucrats, and to find justice and peace of mind for their families, while struggling with the daily devastation of disease and death from toxic exposure. Fully researched and well-documented with the real-life stories of the native Mi'kmaq, the steelworkers and their families, and concerned citizens of this Cape Breton community, 'Frederick Street' sends out a passionate message to all Canadians whose own communities face the danger of toxic waste and environmental destruction." - from rear.
