Abstract:  A coalition of groups, including the Grand Council of the Cree, Les Amis de la Terre, and the Canadian Arctic Resources Committee, have joined in a legal action whose purpose is to ensure a comprehensive and public environmental review of Hydro-Quebec megaprojects in the James Bay region. The projects would involve, among other things, the diversion of eight northern rivers, the flooding of more than 12,800 square kilometres of forest, the destruction and disruption of numerous wildlife habitats, and the discharge of massive quantities of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.
