Je publie dans le dernier numéro de la Revue d’histoire de l’Amérique française, sous la direction de Stéphane Castonguay et Dany Fougères, un article découlant de mes recherches doctorales.

L’article s’intitule : « À travers le pare-brise: la création des territoires touristiques au Québec et en Ontario (1920-1945). Il est publié dans la Revue d’histoire de l’Amérique française, 68, 3-4 (printemps-hiver 2015): 271-299.


This article explores the different ways in which territory has historically been perceived, conceived and practiced through the experience and growth of mobility. Since the 1920s, automobility played a crucial role in tourist stakeholders thought and the creation of tourism regions.

Local Clusters of Self-Reliance: The Key to Rural Prosperity

"If you’re a smart rural community, start with what your residents are already spending their money on."



Eardley Escarpment in the Municipality of Pontiac, Québec

By Michael H. Shuman

At a time when daily headlines bring worse and worse news about the plight of rural economies, it's worth reminding ourselves that success is possible.

Last autumn, Marian Burros of the New York Times wrote a piece about how the 3,000-person community of Hardwick, Vermont, has prospered by creating a new "economic cluster" around local food. Cutting-edge restaurants, artisan cheese makers, and organic orchardists turning fruit into exquisite pies are just some of the new businesses that have added an estimated 75-100 jobs to the area in recent years. A new Vermont Food Venture Center hopes to accelerate this creation of enterprises.

Protecting Canada’s farmland, the right way

November 20, 2014 — Canada was once a country of farms. At Confederation, four out of every five Canadians were farmers. Today, farmers comprise less than two per cent of the population and produce a mere 1.1 per cent of GDP. Should it come as any surprise that the amount of farmland in Canada is shrinking, as well?

Last week, Statistics Canada released a comprehensive look at agriculture in Canada, bringing together the latest economic, geographic and ecological indicators. The most noteworthy observation: Nearly one million hectares of “dependable agricultural land” has disappeared from cultivation over the past 10 years, most of it subsumed by development around Canada’s biggest cities.

Urban sprawl is destroying Ontario’s farmland

Despite its huge area, Canada has relatively little dependable farmland. Good soil and a friendly climate are hard to find. So it seems like good news that on a clear day you can see about half the best agricultural land in Canada from the top of Toronto’s CN Tower. If we’re to feed our growing urban populations, having food lands close to where people live will be critical to sustaining local food security.

Some regions of the country, like the Golden Horseshoe surrounding Toronto, have been blessed with an abundance of Class 1 soils. But an increasing proportion of the best soils in the Golden Horseshoe and in most urbanized regions of Canada now lie beneath sprawling housing developments, highways, strip malls and other infrastructure. As urban communities have grown over the years, agricultural lands and natural areas have far too often been drained, dug up and paved over.
