Environmental Activism in Ontario

First Green Wave: Environmental Activism in Ontario The First Green Wave examines the story of Pollution Probe, an organization founded in 1969 by students and faculty at the University of Toronto. Living up to its motto (""Do it!""), in its first year of operation Pollution Probe confronted Toronto's City Hall over its use of pesticides, Ontario Hydro over air pollution, and the detergent industry over pollution of the Great Lakes. The success of these actions inspired the founding of other environmental organizations across Canada and led to the development of environmental initiatives now taken for granted. Admission is free.
