For the March, 2014 edition of InfoSuperior’s podcast, or audio interview series, Thunder Bay Remedial Action Plan Coordinator Jim Bailey speaks with Jamie Saunders of EcoSuperior, a representative of the North Harbour Steering Committee. This committee is exploring methods for dealing with mercury contamination in the northeast portion of Thunder Bay Harbour. The interview deals with questions like how this harbour site became contaminated in the first place, who is working to bring about cleanup, how serious is the contamination and what are the next steps in resolving this issue.
