Alternative history

Erin Kelly post at CornerBrooker:

Another aspect of Smallwood’s legacy was the creation of the Upper Churchill dam, which created lasting enmity between Newfoundland and Quebec. Newfoundland essentially gave away most of the economic benefits of the project in exchange for a power corridor through Quebec. It was also a raw deal for the people of the Innu Nation, who were not even consulted about the damming, though they live next to it and have seen their hunting, fishing, and ancestral burial grounds decimated.
Play "Spot The Glaring Errors". It's fun!
