Hanlon Creek Essay 6

Tributary A of the Hanlon Creek flows through the contested land. This creek is one of many that feed into Speed River and then into Grand River, eventually meeting Lake Erie. Pollutants upstream, created by industry, agriculture and development—such as the Hanlon Creek Business Park (HCBP)—contaminate the drinking water of communities like the Haudenosaunee (Six Nations) community and the city of Brantford. The struggle against development in Guelph is also a struggle for clean drinking water for communities downstream.
