The purpose of this project was to look closely at the impact of toxic progress on Place. Focussing on Sumas Mountain in Abbotsford, I use poetic prose and a personal essay structure to draw the reader's attention to social, historical, cultural, and environmental losses suffered at the hands of infringement into natural areas. These infringements have occurred since colonization and continue to negatively impact environments over time. Through personal explorations, close environmental observations, hearing human and non-human voices, and considering the fallouts of colonization, this project aims to illuminate the errors of the colonized age regarding environmental impact. This is achieved by showcasing the inherent value of interconnected relationships with and within ecosystems. The project also aims to mitigate further damage to ecological areas often forever altered at the hands of those focussed on growth and prosperity over connectivity and balance.
