Why Resource Extraction

Recommended Posts

The question of why Canada is so dependent on being hewers of wood and drawers of water was a hot topic in the 1960's. And yet we are still at it. We have an outstanding banking system. We have huge potential in the IT industry but all we do is develop something and then sell it off. We have a potential to be a world leader in nuclear power and LIFTR reactors. 

So what do we do? We sell off the resources future generations will need to survive for peanuts. It is not the politicians. It is us. We have no regard for the future. Nobody seems to care about the people who will come after us. That was not the attitude of the people who created the industrial revolution. They made investments in a future only their grand children would live to see. The men who built England's canal system understood there would not be a return on their investment in their children's life time. Why are we not protecting the future of future generations?
