    The Overall Issue and Its Relation to Canada:
    The James Bay Hydroelectric Project has raised lots of controversy over its environmental, social, economic, and political effects on Canada. The controversy is on whether to build a series of 9 dams on rivers on the east coast of James Bay. People are discussing all the pros and cons before going ahead with such a large project. If the project is taken forward there will a huge profit for Hydro-Quebec and the government. At least 10% of the profit was also to be traded with the United States. But, the environment and the relationship with aboriginals in the area are at stake. Going forward with the project will also cause flooding and destruction of vast untouched wildlife (Marsh, May 17). It will also ruin the land tha
    ...
    The economic aspect of the project is obviously the cost of building the dams as well as profits, jobs and affects on the citizen’s expenses. The first phase of the project will cost $13.7billion alone while the second phase will cost $17billion. The initial expenses will slowly be gained back through increases in taxes and profits but will leave Hydro-Quebec and the Quebec Government in debt for a significant period of time. Secondly, the project will provide some jobs for the local communities. Along with the jobs, there will be more expenses for the locals because of the need to import more items. Since the land that was originally used to get food is ruined the community will have to import more items. Importing goods is very expensive since the communities are so secluded meaning high grocery bills. Raised taxes to pay for the project will also effect a much larger population. There are many economic consequences associated with the James Bay Hydroelectric Project.

    The James Bay project is a highly controversial environmental issue. In order to produce the proposed amount of energy 9 rivers had to be dammed, rivers had to be diverted, floods and fires destroyed vast areas of fragile wildlife. Large levels of mercury from decaying vegetation was released into the environment, contaminating fish that were then consumed by the local Cree and killing 10 000 caribou (Marsh, May 17). Now is hydroelectricity truly an environmentally friendly renewable resource to produce electricity from?

    The Four Spheres of Issue Analysis

    are caused bby this issue
    Environmental - The Canadian environment actually benefits from this crisis. This is because we are using less natural resources, burning less fuels, and making less goods, which is taxing on the environment. However, the environment in nations with emerging economies has gotten worse because they need to produce more manufactured goods to fill the hole made by the Canadian crisis.
    Social - The main social problem that is caused by this issue is the unemployment rates. This crisis has caused Canada's unemployment rate to soar to a rate of 8.3%, an eleven year high (Human Resources and Skills Development Canada, 2012). The unemployed workers may have to move to another place or rely on the government to give them monthly support. However, the unemployment rate has declined to a 7.3% as of 2012 due to a job boom from March to April created over 140,000 jobs and 7,700 more jobs were created in May (Flavelle, 2012).
