After the Last River

At an elegant Toronto party celebrating Canadian diamonds, De Beers unveils some of its first gems mined outside of the African continent. Over 1000 kilometers to the north, the company's latest project sits on the Attawapiskat River, which forms part of the largest pristine wetland left on earth and is an important resource for the nearby Mushkegowuk Cree community. Filmmaker Vicki Lean begins by following her father, David Lean, an ecotoxicologist, to the community of Attawapiskat. Community members have invited him to discuss concerns that the new mine will increase mercury contamination in the local fish to dangerous levels.
