This video tape compares two energy conferences held in Edmonton in November 1976: the Seventh Annual Conference on Energy and Northern Development, and the Citizens Counter-Conference.

Abstract:  This video tape compares two energy conferences held in Edmonton in November 1976: the Seventh Annual Conference on Energy and Northern Development, and the Citizens Counter-Conference.
The Citizens Conference sharply challenges the Annual Conference by posing such questions as: Are we in fact facing an energy crisis? Can our economy afford the massive development projects planned for our northern frontier? Are the social and environment costs of massive development projects acceptable? The Counter-Conference also makes a number of recommendations to the larger conference. One of these includes a moratorium on northern energy projects pending the settlement of native land claims.
