"When Juanita McKenzie came home in 1998 to find two men in white environmental suits posting a sign that read "Human Health Hazard" behind her neighbor's house, she knew that something was terribly wrong. For the people of Frederick Street in Sydney, Nova Scotia, the past was about to come crashing into the present. They wereliving next door to one of the worst toxic waste sites in North America. H ow did an estuary that was once a pristine body of water become a cesspool containing 700,000 tons of toxic sludge, a site 35 times worse than the infamous Love Canal? [...] tells for the first time the compelling story of a once-beautiful area where 100 hundred years ago the Mi'kmaq lived and fished and early settlers enjoyed the bounty of the ocean. 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.

"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.
