This article is based on a paper that was to be presented at a conference on environmental justice and human rights hosted by the University of Ottawa from 8-10 November 2012. I was unable to attend because of a medical emergency but a webinar of this paper will nevertheless be made available on the conference website. My thanks are due to Mariette Liefferink, Jackie Dugard and Michael Power for their assistance in gathering the information relating to the case study presented in this article.
