Resource communities in a globalizing region : development, agency, and contestation in northern British Columbia

Gary N. Wilson (Author, Editor), Paul Bowles (Author, Editor)
"Northern British Columbia has always played an important role in Canada's economy, but for many Canadians it also existed as an almost forgotten place: a vast territory where only a few roads and a ferry system connected small cities, towns, and villages to the outside world. Now, as the appetite for natural resources intensifies, this resource-rich and geographically important region is being pulled onto the national and global economic stages. This timely volume examines the connections between local development and global forces and how governments, Aboriginal peoples, organized labour, NGOs, and the private sector are adapting to, resisting, and embracing change."-- Provided by publisher
