Giant Mine has been getting a lot of attention in national media recently! First, there was this podcast from Canadaland Commons, as part of their mining series. Host Arshy Mann did a great job exploring the history and contemporary legacies of arsenic contamination at the mine, and we were pleased to speak with him.
More recently, Eva Holland wrote a nice reflective piece for The Walrus linking her family’s history in Yellowknife and at Giant to the larger story of arsenic contamination and exposure. At the end, she reflects on questions of responsibility, both personal and collective, for these harms and legacies.
