Canada & Conflict: A Humanitarian Perspective: Designed by and for high school teachers, this educational toolkit was developed to inform and empower youth to take action toward alleviating human suffering. Using Canadian examples, the revised 2016 edition is a complete toolkit comprised of 6 modules that touch on issues of International Humanitarian Law such as war crimes, refugees, neglected crises, gender inequality, humanitarian principles, mechanisms for justice and youth engagement. Canada & Conflict is directly complementary to academic subjects such as civics, social studies, history, geography, law, language arts and the humanities and is available in both English and French.
This lesson uses the Site C Dam review by the BC Utilities Commission as a case study to:
• find out more about megaprojects in BC
• ask questions about where our power comes from and energy security in general
• delve into the November 2018 BC Utilities Commission Report on the Site C Dam project
• understand how the history and issues around the Site C dam relates to themes in Social Studies, and anticipate what the government is going to do next.
