Definitely sending this around here - like the Alberta Tar Sands with a different accent and warmer weather. I'm sure it will attract interest, including for group screenings. And we had an asbestos disaster here too (mostly in Québec) as you might recall with the story of Wittenoom, recounted in Midnight Oil's hit "Blue Sky Mine". Even when asbestos use was banned here, companies wanted to export it (and cancer) to countries such as India with less stringent health and safety legislation and oversight. Still relevant, I fear...And some have sailed from a distant shoreAnd the company takes what the company wantsAnd nothing's as precious, as a hole in the groundWho's gonna save me?I pray that sense and reason brings us inWho's gonna save me?We've got nothing to fearIn the end the rain comes downWashes clean, the streets of a blue sky town
