The Sydney Tar Ponds is the toxic legacy of almost a century of steel making in Sydney, Nova Scotia. Years of government negligence have rendered the site an ongoing and devastating environmental and health problem. Ms. Vitello’s research reveals new data on the actual extent of pollution and tax dollars wasted to date.
