The Toronto Environmental Alliance has produced a map of Toronto showing the location of toxins released within the city boundaries in 2003. Over 8,500 tons of chemicals were “knowingly dumped into Toronto’s air, land and water” that year. Data was taken from the federal government’s National Pollutant Release Inventory. the Alliance states that “this map is only part of the picture. 10s of 1000s of polluters in Toronto don't have to report their releases to the public at all.”

The map - a good looking item - is available in a barely readable jpg format (you will need to right-click on the link and “Save As . . .” to view it). A hard copy map is also available upon request. Read the accompanying press release or a local news story on the map.
