The McAnulty residents won't just give up though. Today Jay and I went out canvassing with Barbara, who has lived in the area for many many years. We met at her house, beautifully tucked behind two large trees on her front lawn (to which she's hoping to add a third). Barbara took charge in knocking on neighbours' doors, introducing herself and us, and encouraging everyone to request trees and create a screen between their homes on McAnulty and Dofasco's pollution. Thanks to her efforts we received many requests, and also got a chance to speak to many of McAnulty's residents. We're looking forward to going back and continuing to build relationships with people living in the area and caring for their community.
