Les aménagements hydroélectriques du Québec : le renouveau des grands projets

Authors: Lasserre, Frédéric
Abstract: During the 1970s the Quebec government began to harness for energy production the rivers of northern Quebec which run into the Hudson and James Bays. Major dams were constructed on the river La Grande, leading to territorial disputes with the local inhabitants (Cris and Inuit). Nevertheless,these dams involved the creation of immense reservoirs resulting in the flooding of large areas of land and the diversion ofthe region’s rivers. Due to the opposition ofthe Amerindians and a part of public opinion, such major schemes disappeared in the early 1990s. However, atthe beginning ofthe 21s t century new projects have emerged. How can this be explained ?
