Summary
"Tells the story of David Lavallee's three year journey across Western Canadian watersheds in search of answers about the activities of the world's thirstiest oil industry: the Tarsands... In the course of his journey he makes many discoveries: new science shows that water resources in an era of climate change will be increasingly scarce; First Nations people living downstream are contracting bizarre cancers; the upgrading of this oil threatens multiple river systems across Canada and the tailings ponds containing the waste by-products of the process threaten to befoul the third largest watershed in the world. Additionally, a planned pipeline across British Columbia brings fresh threats to BC Rivers and the Pacific Ocean. "White Water, Black Gold" is a sober look at the untold costs associated with developing the second largest deposit of "oil" in the world. Its conclusions are drawn from the latest science coming out of the University of Alberta and the University of Regina, as well as the viewpoints of people living downstream, such as the communities of Fort Mckay and Fort Chipewyan, as well as First Nations on the Pacific Coast"--Container
