Episode 1: A changing world (35 min.)
On Baffin Island, approximately 300 kilometres north of the village of Igloolik, Baffinland Iron Mines Corp. is getting ready to mine one of the largest and purest iron deposit on the planet: two mountains of ore will be cut down at Mary River. Some residents of Igloolik react to this development : they worry that this industrial development will destroy their environment and the marine mammals as well as their culture and hunting life style.
Episode 2: People Can Stand Up (20 min.)
The Nunavut government recently opened the way to uranium mining. The Inuit organizations of Nunavut have now shares in a company specialized in uranium mining operations near the village of Baker Lake. The future of Nunavut is thought in terms of nuclear energy.
Some Nunavut residents want to voice their concerns and created a grass root organization to ask for a public inquiry; should Nunavut open or not the way to nuclear energy? Their organization leads to questions of how democracy can be practiced in the young territory
