How can we, the people, enforce our will against an entrenched corporate influenced power structure? Is the democratic political system the way to do it?
Democracy is a term used to describe a more varied range of governmental systems than it's simple definition could lead one to believe.
At it's heart a basic fairness is what I hope to find.
Coming from a homestead in northern Canada and following an education in liberal Canadian universities I moved to Germany where I have lived for several years. Over the years I have followed the struggle in Canada to balance environmental protection with the economic gain of natural resource extraction. Mainly it seems to me to be a story of the failure to protect the environment, with a few major exceptional victories along the way.
This film is my attempt to find out if the environmental cause has any hope of success within the political system as it stands.
