A fantastic documentary about the impacts of large scale resource extraction in Canada (and elsewhere). A must watch!
A story of how large-scale resource extraction negatively impacts communities at opposite ends of our country. Having grown up in Fort Assiniboine, Alberta and Sept-Iles, Quebec respectively, William Ray and Michelle Moore realized that the same socio-economic effects were found in both the communities affected by the Alberta Oil Sands and the Plan Nord in Quebec.
Once the Plan Nord is completed it will be the second largest industrial project after the Alberta Oil Sands. Mine Arnaud is being presented to the reluctant city of Sept-Iles which is set to be the largest open-pit mine in Quebec, and was already rejected by the Bureau d’Audiences Publiques sur l’Environnement in February 2014.
This documentary is in French and English with subtitles.
