Quebec's Toxic Pollution Concern.
The best solution to the problems of increased pollution of Quebec lakes and rivers with toxic wastes and increased incidence of pollution related diseases is to educate children, to make them aware of the environment and man's interrelationship with it. Attitudes of concern, based on knowledge, must be developed so that as adults, they will take positive action to make and keep our environment healthy and pleasant for themselves and future generations. The responsibility for developing these attitudes has now become part of the schools' program and requires that children experience the natural environment and learn to love and enjoy it. Environmental teaching materials from six sources are recommended. Titles of 36 National Film Board of Canada environmental films on the subjects of acid rain, air, citizen action, energy, smoking, solid waste, transportation, and water are listed along with information about film length and catalogue numbers.
