Forest Ethics Event

This poster caught my eye as I was grabbing coffee at Sprouts today…

Author Andrew Nikiforuk and renowned photographer Ian McAllister team up to discuss the effects of a proposed Enbridge pipeline that would carry oil from Alberta’s Tar Sands to the BC coast. Their photographs and stories highlight the social and environmental costs of Tar Sands development and provide a clear call to action to protect BC’s wild coast. Discussion will follow presentation.

This is a free event hosted at the Norm Theatre at 12:30pm on 26-November. You find out more information on the Forest Ethics website,, the non-profit organization hosting the event.
