Some of you travelling this Summer will be keeping an eye out for an affordable retirement home in a picturesque setting. But don't be fooled: rural areas can be as pleasant as an industrial park.
As polluting industries slowly leave our cities, Canadians need to be reminded that we are still a rich country because of our natural resources. Or more precisely, because we exploit our natural resources. We don't hunt seals for sport, we hunt seals so we can buy stuff.
We also have pig farms, windmills, uranium mines, coal mines, clear cut wood lots and all sorts of noisy, smelly endeavours out in the country side.
And that is a good thing.
