2009 Chisasibi, Quebec: Visiting the “Dam Fool Dam”
This had to be one of the strangest, most memorable gigs we’ve ever done. We had to drive to Montreal, then fly 3-1/2 hours north to James Bay and the town of Chisasibi, Quebec, home of the Cree Nation. These are some of the pictures taken when the town’s chief took us by tour bus to the Bourassa Dam, part of the James Bay Hydro Electric Project. The chief told me the locals call it “The Dam Fool Dam.” LOL.
