A monster has been haunting the North.
Giant Mine may be a big reason why Yellowknife exists. But for seven decades, it’s been a unique source of suffering for the people in the region.
Three stories from this uniquely haunted place: the damage it did when it opened, the bloodiest labour dispute in Canadian history, and the toxic legacy that may remain for thousands of years.
Featured in this episode: Morgan Tsetta, Arn Keeling, John Sandlos, Lee Selleck
