Labrador researcher featured in MUN President's Report

It’s hard to imagine Labrador without large scale mines in Labrador West and the mega Upper Churchill hydroelectric project….. But resource industries are actually fairly new in the Big Land. In a span of 50 years, they have transformed the economy and society in a big way. People certainly know the difficulties of living in boom bust economies in Labrador’s resource-dependent towns. It’s something historian and geographer Dr. John Thistle is looking into.
He’s a research associate with the Labrador Institute — and his work is being featured in the MUN President’s Report this year. John Thistle is in St. John’s and is on the phone this morning with John Gaudi. [ccType=audioclip id=2419228665
