DOWN THE MIGHTY RIVER – Episode Four: Hooked on Hydro
Quebec and the James Bay Cree have one thing in common: they’re both hooked on hydro.
Today, the Cree have come rely on hydro money. For Québec, it’s the cornerstone of the province’s economic and political aspirations. With a ready and able workforce and an insatiable appetite for power south of the border, Hydro-Québec is doing what they do best: damming. The Cree have tried to shake their addiction to hydro, proposing alternatives such as wind power.
