Ron Plain and Ada Lockridge are members of the Aamjiwnaang First Nation, a native community in the heart of Ontario's notorious "Chemical Valley" near Sarnia, which according to the World Health Organization has the worst air quality in Canada—pumping out more air pollution than the entire provinces of Manitoba or Saskatchewan or New Brunswick.
