Did you know that Goldfinger Law services Sarnia Ontario and Lambton County? Well, we do. And it’s a good thing you know, because there aren’t too many personal injury lawyers in Sarnia or Lambton County. Also, did you know that with a population of around 90,000, Sarnia is the largest City on Lake Huron? True.
Sarnia was first settled by the French because of its strategic located on Lake Huron where it empties into the St. Clair River. It’s a natural port, and has remained very much a port town since it was first settled to the present. An Oil Spring was discovered in Sarnia which led to its petroleum boom. This led to the development of many oil refineries on the St. Clair River. One of those refineries adorned the back of the old Canadian 10 dollar bill. It still sits there today along the harbour bear downtown Sarnia. It’s a pretty neat site. But, with all of the oil refineries which started in Sarnia, the World Health Organization once proclaimed Sarnia the most polluted city in Canada. Not a good claim to fame for Sarnia. Shell, SunCor, Imperial Oil and Petro Canada have all set up shop in Sarnia to take advantage of the oil spring. There are also large salt beds which have been discovered under the City, which have attracted such chemical companies as Bayer, Cabot, Ethyl and Nova Chemicals to Sarnia. Because there are so many chemicals due to the petroleum refining industry in Sarnia, four sirens have been strategically placed around the city to go off in case of emergency spill/leak.
But Sarnia’s a great city. Much like Windsor and St. Catherine’s, Sarnia is a border city sharing its border with Port Huron USA. The Blue Water bridge connects Sarnia to Port Huron. Sarnia is warmer than most cities in Ontario.
When car accidents and other serious accidents happen in Sarnia, accident victims are taken to the Blue Water Health Centre, which has various sites around Sarnia. The Mitton Site recently had a massive renovation to it which has seen better developments in car for brain injury car accident victims.
Sarnia hosts a large summer festival called Sarnia BayFest which has seen some big name international acts perform in the City. Sarnia is the home to the Sarnia Sting. The most prominent Sting player of late is Steve Stamkos of the Tampa Bay Lightning.
