The films in this compilation explore the forces--both geological and political--that created three of Canada's national parks. Gros Morne: A Matter of Time visits Gros Morne in Newfoundland (17 min. 30 sec.); Pukaskwa National Park explores Pukaskwa National Park on Lake Superior (17 min. 10 sec.); and Steam, Schemes and National Dreams tells the story of how Banff National Park (the first in Canada) is declared when a conscientious surveyor recognizes that the discovery of hot springs similar to those at famous international spas marks the area as a valuable resource that should be preserved for the use and enjoyment of the public (28 min. 34 sec.).

1987, 63 min 14 s
