DOWN THE MIGHTY RIVER - Episode Two: Dams Divide More than Just Water

The money generated from hydroelectric development in James Bay is saving the Cree and tearing them apart at the same time. Are river diversions a necessary evil for the Cree? Is development the key to survival or have they sold their soul for cold hard cash? It’s a question of damned if you do, damned if you don’t. One thing’s clear: dams divide more than just water.
