Massive Canadian Hydroelectric Plan in Danger
Air Date: Week of April 10, 1992
Steve recaps our coverage of Hydro-Quebec's Great Whale project, which would flood thousands of square miles of Native homelands in northern Quebec. Over the past year native Cree Indians and Inuit brought their campaign against the dam system to the US, with increasing success. The CBC's Carol Off reports from Montreal on the political and economic ramifications of New York State's decision to cancel a multi-billion dollar contract with the Canadian utility. This package is part of Living on Earth's First Anniversary Series.
