Richard Desjardins and Robert Monderies The Hole Story continues in the same provocative vein as their earlier Forest Alert.The history of mining in Canada is the story of astronomical profits made with disregard for the environment and human health. The story of nickel in Sudbury, silver in Cobalt, gold in Timmins, copper in Rouyn...Using striking images, rare archival footage, interviews and their trademark humorous social commentary, the directors make a clear case against the way mining has been done in Canada. The Hole Story is a film that sounds the alarm about mining. In a country rich in mineral resources, mining companies have historically paid little tax, while local municipalities bear the financial burden of building and maintaining the roads they use to truck their wealth out to other countries. Some films are essential viewingThe Hole Story is one of them!
