Summary: (Click on title to hear audio file) Heather McLeod of the CBC Radio Thunder Bay program "Voyage North" came out to Fort William First Nation on Wednesday December 13, 2006 to interview youth about our pollution mapping project titled "Identifying Pollution Affecting Fort William First Nation - Youth Perspectives". The interview was meant to raise awareness about the over 250 random dumpsites found on our reserve, in the November 2006 project, which was funded by the Laidlaw Foundation. It was also our opportunity to invite the public to an Open House that took place on Sunday December 17, 2006, where the results of the project were communicated to the public. The outputs of the project were: a poster-sized map called 'Fort William First Nation Random Dumpsites and Adjacent Industry', a Youth Declaration on Pollution Affecting Fort William First Nation, and a youth-led photo exhibit titled 'This is What We Call Home'. The poster map and youth declaration were presented to the Fort William First Nation Chief and Council on January 16, 2007.
