James Desmond

In this episode Sadie Beaton interviews James Desmond who lives in the small African Nova Scotian Community of Lincolnville and is a founding member of the Lincollnville Reserve Land Voice Council. James has been fighting on behalf of his community for over forty years, ever since an unlined and unwanted dump was sited there without community consent back in the early 1970s. In 2006 a 2nd landfill was added and the community’s concerns are still being ignored.
