Let us end this journey with the words of Jean Chamberland, a geographer from Abitibi :

Today, we are still living off the fruits from the harvesting of this territory’s resources.
Will we be able to rediscover an environmental wisdom that will allow us to diversify our approaches and ensure the sustainability of our resources? Maybe we’ll have to relearn how to cultivate our gardens…
