LNG, fracking and BC's Energy future- Multi-media discussion in Victoria

Join The Common Sense Canadian’s Damien Gillis and Council of Canadians’ Leila Darwish for a multimedia discussion about BC’s energy future – this Wednesday evening in Victoria.

Gillis, who is also co-directing the documentary film Fractured Land, will tackle the economic and environmental myths and realities of the proposed LNG industry – sharing photographs and video clips of the shale gas development in northeast BC that would feed LNG plants on the coast.

Darwish will examine the growing resistance in BC to this LNG vision – from citizens in Howe Sound confronting the proposed Woodfibre LNG plant to grassroots First Nations opposition along proposed pipeline routes in northern BC. Says Gillis:

British Columbians have heard lots of promises about jobs and economic benefits from LNG and shale gas development – but how accurate are these claims, and what are the trade offs for our climate, our water, and human and animal health?

The event is co-sponsored by the Victoria Chapter of the Council of Canadians, the GVTA Social Justice Committee, the Vic High Parent Advisory Council, the Social Environmental Alliance, Sierra Club BC, RAVEN, and Fractured Land.
