Exploring a Sustainable Future for Canada

Life in 2030 is a ground-breaking, practical, and, above all, positive vision of life in twenty-first-century Canada. As we move into the next century, the development of sustainable and environmentally benign patterns of resource utilization and socioeconomic development is an essential priority. In this book, John Robinson and his co-authors investigate the possibility and impacts of a sustainable future for Canada.
