Quebec Hydropolitics : The Peribonka Concessions of the Second World War Volume 24 Paperback / softback

Part of the Studies on the History of Quebec/Etudes d'histoire du Quebec series

Description

The construction in the 1940s of hydroelectric dams and reservoirs, Lakes Manouan and Passe Dangereuse, were enormous projects that had consequences not only on the environment but also on international affairs.

Built by the Aluminium Company of Canada (Rio Tinto Alcan), the project helped meet the American and Allied Forces demand for electrical power and aluminium ingot during the Second World War but also forced Innu/Montagnais hunter-trappers from their ancestral lands.
