Published in 1977, this guide was written to assist Canadian secondary school teachers in exploring the Berger Report on the Mackenzie Valley pipeline in the classroom.
The Report challenges Canadians to face very serious questions concerning the nature of Canada, the value of its unique environment and the worth of each individual within its borders. Its concise text, suggestions for classroom reading and list of related reading make the guide a useful for examining these themes.
Learning from the North is a clear introduction to the human and environmental issues surrounding northern development in Canada.
