Sechelt Green Jobs/Sechelt Run-of-River Project and Salmon Channel/Squamish Estuary: Host Leigh Joseph travels to the Sechelt Nation on Canada's west coast to learn how this community is training Indigenous people for careers in hydro-electricity and other green energy businesses. Then Leigh heads to the Sechelt Creek Hydro project where members of the community operate a run-of-river hydro-electricity plant and monitor a salmon spawning channel. She then meets with Randall Lewis, the environmental coordinator of the Squamish Nation, to find out how they saved their estuary from being turned into an industrial site.
