    the National Aboriginal Achievement Awards John Kim Bell, and musician
    Don Ross

    TORONTO, April 12 /CNW/ -

    
    WHAT:     Benefit event in support of Toxic Nation, Environmental
              Defence's campaign focused on toxic chemicals and health. The
              evening celebrates individuals who are fighting pollution in
              their communities. Two pollution fighters from Aamjiwnaang
              First Nation, near Sarnia, will share their stories of living
              at ground zero in an internationally-recognized pollution
              hotspot.

              Nationwide tests conducted as part of Environmental Defence's
              Toxic Nation campaign have found toxic chemicals polluting the
              blood of Canadians young and old no matter where they live.
              Four federal politicians were recently tested and found to be
              polluted with dozens of chemicals. (www.toxicnation.ca)
