#6 BLS- Logging, Tourism

Over twenty years ago, the unrestrained clear-cutting practices and sport hunting became too much for the community to witness quietly. Years of protests, and later the blockading of logging roads, finally led to negotiations with the Canadian and Quebec governments. The ultimate outcome of those negotiations was the Trilateral Agreement in 1991. Here, film footage shows one of many confrontations between the Sûreté du Québec and blockading community members.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
