From tar sands in Alberta, to wind farms and gravel quarries in Ontario, to pipelines in British Columbia, resource conflicts in Canada often arise over different ideas about how land should be used. As summer approaches, such a conflict seems certain to resume in northwestern British Columbia over a planned coal mine.

A dispute between Aboriginal Tahltans and Fortune Minerals over the Arctos Anthracite project in the Klappan region (known popularly as the Sacred Headwaters) reflects an age-old debate: Use the land by taking something from it or by leaving it alone.
