Introducing The Windigo, Page 5

This is a continuation of the continuing story of Cassie Greenaway, a.k.a. “The Windigo”, Introducing The Windigo, Page 2 -Page 3, Page 4, and Page 6.

-----------------------------------------------

Cassie Greenaway was a Graduate Student, at University College, specializing in Graduate Student at University College.

Her allergies, asthma and multiple sensitivities were manageable, before another student, as well as making her sick with her perfume, contaminated her specimens, and Cassie was transformed into the person the media had dubbed “The Windigo”.

When Cassie saw the UN stalled in another debate on Climate Change, protecting water, Treaty Rights, and the environment, she knew she had to say something.

Without even knowing how, she found herself there, addressing the delegates; and, just as suddenly, back at her Aunt Carol’s condo, with her Nana, Emily, catching her out of the aether.

Now, she needs to change her clothes, and get to her Aunt Carol, a Doctor, as soon as possible, to get the medical attention she needs, before the authorities and media track her down.

Cassie and the other characters and scenarios are my original.

I can’t wait to see what will happen next.

Memo:

I was hoping colour-coding the word balloons would be enough to keep the dialogue straight; but, Aura-Dawn and TheFantaSim suggested the tails weren’t long enough to be clear who was saying what, when; after trying this out before in The Accountrix Squad and Death and Taxes.

It’s a work in progress.

Notes:

[1] In 1985 the government of the province of Ontario (Canada) commissioned a report on MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivities) and Environmental Illness, The Ad Hoc Committee headed by Judge George M. Thomson, B.A., LL.B., LL.M., submitted the “Thomson Report to the Ontario Ministry of Health, Toronto, 1985”, calling for further support and research into Environmental Hypersensitivity Disorders.

In 2003, the author Judge Thomson wrote, “Regrettably, over the past few years…. many of the earlier recommendations seem to have been forgotten. An ongoing, legitimate, but separate debate about medical approaches is again obscuring protection issues…;” aggravating, rather than alleviating the conditions of sufferers.

(Links to the report, its appendices, and related articles at Environmental Health, Seriously "Sensitive" to Pollution.)

[2] Marie LeBlanc Artist/Street-Photographer, was part of an exhibition of managing with Environmental Hypersensitivities and Multiple Chemical Sensitivities (MCS), Canary In The Coal Mine, announced in Arts & Disability Network Manitoba.

She is currently looking for a place to live and trying to raise funds for needed medical attention. (So much for universal health care, in Canada)

(3) Support #NoDAPL and Support Standing Rock. This is an on-going situation, with people facing recovering from serious injuries and legal issues.

(4) StopSiteC.org is hosted jointly by the Peace Valley Environment Association, Sierra Club BC and the Yellowstone to Yukon Conservation Initiative.

We are working together with farmers, First Nations, food security groups, conservation organizations, scientists and concerned citizens to stop the Site C dam on B.C.’s Peace River.

“The proposed $8 billion plus Site C hydroelectric dam would flood more than 80 km of the river valley, as well as its tributaries. The severe impact on Indigenous peoples is beyond dispute. A joint federal-province environmental impact assessment concluded that the dam would “severely undermine” use of the land, would make fishing unsafe for at least a generation, and would submerge burial grounds and other crucial cultural and historical sites.

The West Moberly and Prophet River First Nations have gone to court to protect their traditional lands. Their struggle has been supported by the Union of BC Indian Chiefs, the Assembly of First Nations and many others - including local farmers and other landowners in the Peace Valley.”
