Ada Lockridge is a member of Aamjiwnaang First Nation, an activist, and a long-time client of Ecojustice. We’re representing Ada in our challenge against the Ontario government’s failure to review how it regulates air pollution in a timely manner. Ada is contesting the Ontario government’s ongoing approval of air pollution without considering cumulative effects in Sarnia’s Chemical Valley, home to 40 per cent of Canada’s petrochemical industry. Chemical Valley exposes Ada’s community to a range of harmful air pollutants, including cancer-causing benzene and chemicals known to cause respiratory and cardiovascular problems.
Ada is fierce advocate for the environment, and is dedicated to raising awareness around the impacts of industry on community health.
