“I’m trying to put a human face on what we think are environmental and social problems”
One bright June morning when Nancy Doubleday was five years old, she found a pile of dead birds and an oozing puddle of “black gunk” in a drainage ditch close to her house, 40 kilometres from Sarnia.
“I knew right away – even as a five year old – that this was caused by stupid humans,” she says. “What I didn’t know was why.”
That was her first glimpse into what she calls “the ills of the world.” And the rage she felt – and the desire to fix the problem – never left her.
