COVER STORY

The play for eastern oil

Early in 1964 Premier Joey Small-wood of Newfoundland sent two deep-sea divers precisely 200 miles out to sea, the limits of Canada’s exclusive economic zone. There, on the edge of the vast undersea plateau of the Grand Banks, they deposited a plaque on the ocean floor to mark the province’s claim to the riches in the water and in the land below—a symbol of grand aspiration.

Q&A

Prodding German memory

Maclean’s: The picture of post-war Germany that I get from Mr. Fassbinder is a very dark one, a very dark side of what we here know as the economic miracle of post-war Germany. Is it that bleak? Fassbinder: The image we’ve presented of Germany during the 1950s, during the period of reconstruction, has two sides to it; one is very grey and dull, the other has great vitality, a tremendous energy that was going on in the reconstruction.
