I’ve posted several episodes from the web show Currents in the past, and the past and it never ceases to be an impressive and well made production. The latest episode dropped a few days ago, and it is embedded below for your viewing pleasure.
The Currents program is designed to raise awareness about river issues around the globe, while also offering up some great white water action. This episode is no exception to that theme, examining a plan by the local government to build dams across some of the best paddling rivers in the Province in order to generate hydroelectric power. There is a grass roots effort in place to try to preserve the environments on those rivers and keep them fully navigable.

Great video. Hopefully Quebec leaves most of the rivers dam free.
It is the provincial government of Quebec's plan to dam the rivers, not the Federal Government of Canada. The Feds just halted the process to ensure proper assessments were completed.
Thanks for the clarification and the update. I'll edit the story to reflect the news.
