Hiway 40 to Sarnia -  December 2006 
This track is about my experience as a kid driving down the Hiway 40 from my hometown Wallaceburg to Sarnia. In the evening you can see the factories all lit up. But the disturbing part of this experience is seeing these huge flames about the smoke stacks burning off toxic chemicals into the air.  The flames were so big they would light up the night’s sky.
