Lennox Island, home to Prince Edward Island’s Mi’kmaq First Nation for more than 10,000 years now finds itself on the front lines of Canada’s battle against climate change and in danger of disappearing altogether. Through the camera lens and interviews with Island residents, this video chronicles the coastal erosion and damage to infrastructure taking place on the Island due to higher tides and more frequent powerful storms.
While mitigation efforts are underway, Lennox Island remains in jeopardy and serves as a warning to all Canadians. Viewers will learn that climate change in Canada is happening now, its effects are devastating and immediate action is required.
The program effectively supports the study of climate change. It is especially valuable for examining the impact of climate change in Canada. The urgency of climate action is made clear. The video also illustrates how modern science and indigenous knowledge collectively result in a better understanding of problems and solutions.
