Histoire de pêche
Sorry this film is not available yet.
Excerpt  (2:16) 1975, production : Jean Chabot
The film
Foreign-owned industry tends to overlook local environmental concerns. Environmentalists commonly hold this view, expressed here by a Quebec journalist in the 1970s. Private industry, whose primary motive is to maximize profits, can threaten to relocate if governments impose pollution controls. As a result governments are pressured to favour the interests of industry over public health and environmental protection.

Grâce à ses milliers de lacs et de rivières, le Québec constitue un véritable paradis pour les pêcheurs. Aujourd'hui cependant, la pollution de plus en plus répandue des eaux du Québec risque de priver la population de la jouissance de ce sport. Histoire de pêche vient sonner l'alarme et, à l'aide de témoignages choc de diverses personnes concernées par ce problème, tente d'en cerner les responsables afin que s'engage une prise de conscience qui pourrait conduire à des actions afin d'arrêter la dégradation de cette richesse de notre environnement.
