A filmstrip about land use issues in Canada.
Abstract: This filmstrip begins with a mythical village that continually expands over the good farmland around it until there is no place to grow food to feed the villagers. The filmstrip asks the question "Can this ever happen in Canada?" It gives a detailed description of present agricultural lands in Canada. It points to the pressures that are on that resource - foodland - in Canada's urban areas. It asks questions as to the Church's role in the area of land use. How does the Church give leadership to preserve prime agricultural land?
This filmstrip is meant as a general educational tool to raise the viewer's
awareness of the problem so they can move forward into positive action on this vital social issue - land use. The film's catalogue number is 052201009.
