Blind Faith, published in 1981, remains the best account of the troubling history of the nuclear industry in Port Hope. Everyone living in Port Hope, and anyone thinking of moving here, should read this book to see how people in Port Hope and Hope Township were treated in the past by all levels of government and Eldorado/Cameco, because, in spite of the ongoing rancour and increasing controversy, nothing has changed.

Penny Sanger was born in Framingham, Massachusetts to Canadian parents.
She came to Port Hope in 1933, age two, when her father, Philip Allan Cheyne Ketchum, became the first non-clergyman Headmaster of Trinity College School.
Part of her schooling took place at Central School and PHHS on Pine Street.
Early work as a reporter for the Port Hope Evening Guide, the Cobourg Sentinal-Star and the Peterborough Examiner led to a career as a freelance journalist.
Penny and her husband, Clyde Sanger, live in Ottawa. They have four sons.
