"Peace Out" - http://knowledge.ca/program/peace-out

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.
