Streets, libraries, garbage collection, recycling, health care and education. All touch our lives--and all are under the control of local and provincial or territorial governments. Local and Provincial Governments - Working Together explores the relationships between various levels of government and how they handle funding and issues crossing jurisdictional boundaries. The film features a case study, showing how individuals can influence local government. When two young people discover that a local green space is slated for a condo development, they organize their neighbours, bring their concerns to their councillor and attend a council meeting. Intended for Grades 6-12, civics and social studies.
