            In 2015 the First Nations Aamjiwnaang group marched as climate activists in a journey known as a ‘Toxic Tour’ through Sarnia’s Chemical Valley that houses over 40% of Canada’s chemical industry. The valley has approximately 60 oil refineries and factories, packed into an industrial strip along the St. Clair River. The river is directly connected to the Aamjiwnaang lands, with the storage tanks and oil terminals being viewed from this once prosperous area.  The water is so contaminated surrounding the First Nations communities, that they are prohibited to touch it.
