FOR OUR PEAT'S SAKE is an examination of the economic benefits and ecological impacts that are incurred through the production and use of ancient reserves of peat mosses. The 35 minute documentary film focusses on the Lake Winnipeg watershed region, where desperate Canadians and First Nations peoples are fighting for the protection of water, as nutrient runoff, flooding, and extreme weather has resulted in suffocating lakes and toxically undermined water sources.
