Course Description: The Modern Outdoor Recreation Ethics (MORE) course’s primary objective is to foster a personal environmental ethic as well as knowledge about environmentally sensitive recreation in the outdoors. This summer term section of the MORE course will travel to the James Bay region of Quebec to examine the contentious James Bay project (one of the world’s largest and costliest hydroelectric projects, located in the northern Quebec) and its potential impact on the natural and cultural environment of that region. Specifically, we will be examining the free-flowing Pontax River in its natural state and the recently damned Rupert River (Phase 2 of the James Bay project). The Rupert River is currently being diverted.
