Top of page

This video presents two scenarios describing Canada's socio-economic situation in the year 2010. The first scenario is pessimistic. The major Canadian cities are racked by riots. The country is crushed by debt and has to make drastic cuts in government services to avoid being taken over by the World Bank. A grim flashback shows what led to this crisis. The second scenario is optimistic. Canada has embraced the global economy and overcome its debt problems. Students completing the economic education curriculum in the year 2010 have four minutes to consult a database on the Internet and answer a question that constitutes their final exam: "Will Canada be a member of the new G7?" Volume 4, Program 2 of the series.
