Mark Cabaj in his “Peoples History” of CED and the Social Economy notes the fundamental and pervasive role of natural resources in the evolution of Canada’s peoples and communities.. Landscapes carved by natural forces eons before the advent of human existence have shaped our communities, our livelihoods, our cultural identities and our expectations. It is interesting to reflect upon how this history reflects itself in our current relationship and attitudes towards nature? What assumptions have been at the center of our approach to the use and development of nature’s bounty? How does our past reflect itself in the struggles of today and the issues of tomorrow?
