The population declined to 50 from about 4000. This article, inspired by findings from the authors’ first field visit, argues that the cyclonic development metaphor used to describe single-commodity communities naturalizes environmental damage and obscures a more complicated history involving human agency. Further, apart from the former mines that garner funding and attention, UC's suburbs and landfill could also benefit from assessment and remediation. Canada’s 2015 Truth and Reconciliation Commission Report provides a way forward in healing this region, in part by listening to the voices of those affected by environmental impacts caused not by a metaphorical cyclone but by others' decisions. As descendants of European settlers, the authors are also subjects of the terms—cyclonic development, abandonment, remediation—used to describe the history of the UC region itself.
