ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the environmental problems encountered by the residents at Fort McMurray, Alberta. The place used to be the ideal home destination because of the adventure of living in a suburban and the higher wages offered in the area. However, the illegal dumping of the garbage has destroyed the image of the location.
