Nationalization of Electricity (LBPSB)Scenario created by Sophie Lussier, conseillère pédagogique, LBPSB
Electricity is one resource of many, but maybe the most important resource of Quebec. Nationalizing that resource (making it publicly owned) was a milestone in the economic and political life of the province.
This scenario consists of three task sections:
1) Establish Facts by viewing some videos on the origins, history and issues of the James Bay; then identify the political and economic advantages and disadvantages involved.
2) Situate in space & connect facts by identifying and considering some communities that were affected by Quebec's hydroelectric network.
3) Situate in space & connect facts by identifying another dam site in the province of Quebec, and considering its advantages and disadvantages, then compare it to a sample dam location.
