The Suncor Refinery: (SEP)

Cultivando’s outreach program will address the despair and sense of hopelessness expressed by citizens as recorded in “Voices of the People.” These voices are representative of the many people in the Tier 1 working class neighborhoods, many of whom are Hispanic and can often be ignored or discounted because of their lack of facility with English. This is particularly true of older members of the community for whom English could very well be a second language.

Pollution

This project was developed in response to the widely expressed desire within the Tier 1 communities to know what chemicals were being released by the Suncor refinery and what effect those chemicals were having on community wellbeing. This proposal evolved over ten months of communication and collaboration with local citizens and neighborhood groups.

Air Monitoring

This project will give the people the information they want and have a right to know about Suncor air pollution. It will undoubtedly lead to less pollution from reformed operations, and thus better health outcomes. Nevertheless, It will almost certainly take further action on the part of government to implement wider solutions.

Monitoring data are processed within minutes of their recording and uploaded to a public website for informing citizens, health care professional, plant operators and any other interested parties about current air quality conditions.
