The Battle of Rabaska - DVD/La bataille de Rabaska - DVD

Top of page

Building large industrial plants in a community always raises questions about public consultation and democracy. But when these mega-projects involve imported fossil fuels known to contribute to global warming, basic questions about the environment and human safety arise.

Filmmakers Magnus Isacsson and Martin Duckworth followed the battle fought by citizens and environmental activists against the Rabaska consortium’s methane tanker terminal in an agricultural and tourist region on the south shore of the St. Lawrence, opposite Île d’Orléans and near Beaumont and Lévis.

Lucid and compelling, the film shows citizen action pitted against powerful lobbies and reminds us to be vigilant faced with Quebec’s environmental and energy-related issues over the coming years.
