Summary
The history of mining in Canada is a story of astronomical profits made with disregard for the environment and human health. It is the story of nickel in Sudbury, silver in Cobalt, gold in Timmins, and copper in Rouyn-Noranda. In a country rich in mineral resources, mining companies historically have paid little tax while local municipalities have borne the financial burden of building and maintaining the roads they use to truck their wealth out to other countries. Using striking images, rare archival footage, interviews, and their trademark humorous social commentary, Richard Desjardins and Robert Monderie make a clear case in The Hole Story against the way mining has been done in Canada. This documentary sounds the alarm about mining and continues in the same provocative vein as the filmmakers' earlier work Forest Alert.
