“World turned upside down”: An emergency doctor with arsenic poisoning urges government to act

Emergency physician Catherine Falardo is leaving her hometown and her patients behind and asking the government to keep her pants on to protect her health and that of her family.

Catherine Falardeau, an emergency physician established in Rouen-Noranda, Abitibi-Témiscamingue for twenty years, decided to leave her region and her patients when she realized she had arsenic in her blood. He said during the program. The world is upside downFriday night.

The doctor, who arrived in Abitibi in 1999, tried to raise the alarm with an artist friend in 2005 after the Ministry of Environment published a report on emissions of arsenic and other problematic mine tailings. The two women set up a shock installation called “Casing Nothing” but were quickly rejected.

In 2019, 20 years after her arrival, the mother of four decided to leave her region after suffering from arsenic poisoning.

Currently, the horn smelter is limited to an arsenic emission limit of 15 ng/m.3 Within five years. However the limit exceeds the Quebec standard of 3 ng/m3.

Note that outgoing Premier François Legault believes the fate of the Horn foundry should be decided by the citizens of Rouen-Noranda and that the CAQ government will close the plant if the majority wants it.
