Down The Mighty River

One Less River #105

Friday, January 24, 03:30 am on FNX NAT

Duration: 0:22:24

Description: The Rupert is one of the few remaining wild rivers. The Cree are sharing their land for development for the future generations all over Quebec. What is the environmental impact of all this kind of development on the territory, and more globally, on our climate? We visit Smokey Hill, a key traditional site for the Cree where Hydro's environmental mitigation efforts extend to mitigate the cultural impacts as well. We meet brothers that were torn apart by their father's decision to allow major development on their trapline, and learn how they united and came to understand the elders' resolution.
