First published in 1971, Forced Growth is a pioneering investigative report on the all-too-frequent follies of government-supported development projects.
The subjects considered span the nation: from the Churchill Forest Industries fiasco in Manitoba to the heavy water plant in Glace Bay, Nova Scotia, from Fish plants in P.E.I. to pulp mills in Saskatchewan, and Brinco's huge Churchill Falls hydro development in Labrador.
Philip Mathias first broke many of these stories in the pages of the Financial Post; in Forced Growth he provides full and fascinating accounts of each.
