Pollution Probe - members address meeting at Toronto City Hall
Robert Lansdale Photography
July 07, 1969
Photographs taken during City of Toronto hearings on the link between the death of ducks on an island in Toronto Harbour and the use of Deazinon (pesticide) by the Metro Toronto Parks Department. This issue mobilized Pollution Probe, a student organization to join forces with a local environmental group - Group Action to Stop Pollution (GASP) - to convene an unofficial inquiry at which these photographs were taken. Commissioners included Dr. Robert McClure, Moderator of the United Church of Canada; Prof. Ernest Sirluck University of Toronto Vice-President and Graduate Dean and Prof. Marshall McLuhan, Director of the University's Center for Culture and Technology. Prof. Donald Chant, chair of the Department of Zoology, a member of Pollution Probes, spoke as a witness at the hearings.
