Conversation with Mina Campbell

In February, 2018, Sean McGrath, Kyla Bruff and I (co-directors of FANE) travelled to Happy Valley-Goose Bay, where we participated in a public symposium on the environmental, social, and culture impacts of the ill-conceived Muskrat Falls Hydroelectric project. Many people took the time to participate in the event, and to speak to us in depth about the project. While assessment studies and policy debates are vitally important, no less so are the stories and the perspectives of the people most impacted by resource development. This is a roughly edited conversation with Mina Campbell, who lives in North West River.
