When Canadians think about the north, they tend to focus on the far north of arctic wastelands. This book looks at Canada's "forgotten" north, the subarctic belt that runs from British Columbia to Labrador.
Long ignored, these provincial norths are now being "rediscovered" by southerners anxious to exploit the land's untapped resources. But these lands are not uninhabited or abandoned: they are the homelands of Canada's aboriginal peoples. This book assesses issues of importance to these people: the destruction of the environment by resource development, and the persistence of colonial perspectives, depressed economies, and poor social conditions.
In The Forgotten North, Kenneth Coates and William Morrison outline the history of subarctic north and its inhabitants, consider its contemporary problems, and examine some proposed solutions.
