In northern BC and Alberta, there has been an explosion in resource extraction activities, with mega-projects like the Site C dam, hydro-fracked shale gas wells, a nuclear power plant and the tar sands. The economy is booming, but with it comes heated debate and conflicting claims about the impact on the environment. In this thought-provoking and beautifully made film, Vancouver-based director Charles Wilkinson talks to experts from both sides of the divide, presenting an even-handed look at the issues as he probes the deeper causes of environmental exploitation.
