Red Hill Creek, ON

Don McLean

My most memorable experience at this waterbody took place in Hamilton where our attempt to protect the city's 2nd largest stream led to the discovery of a leaking dumpsite. My friend (as part of a group) filed a personal charge against the owner of the dump, the city of Hamilton, under the Federal Fisheries Act. It included a bounty clause so she received half the fine imposed on the city, $150,000 out of $300,000 and we used it to establish Hamilton's most active environmental group, Environment Hamilton, as well as an environmental justice fund.
