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. 

Un regard sur les impacts socio-économiques et culturels qu’une économie basée sur l’éxploitation des ressources naturelles peut avoir sur la population.

FLOATING CITIES: SCIENCE FICTION OR A SOLUTION TO RISING SEA LEVELS? Michelle Moore

“Fast-paced climate change is upon us. Rising sea levels are no longer a secondary concern but one that is at the forefront of our minds and our media, and it’s time to get creative. According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), “mean sea level is projected to rise by tens of centimetres, and possibly more than a metre, by the year 2100, due primarily to thermal expansion of the oceans and increased melting of land ice.”
