The Forest in Crisis
Film  (21:20) 1981, production : Susan Murgatroyd
This film dispels the myth that Canada has an inexhaustable supply of usable wood. It documents the use and misuse of forest resources in northern Ontario, and the efforts of government and industry to find better ways to grow a second forest. However, the problem is not just a northern one. The crisis threatens the forest industry, creator of one out of ten Canadian jobs.
