Film Screening: On The Line

  • Fri, October 18, 2013
  • 7:30 PM
  • Mahone Bay Centre, Mahone Bay
In summer 2010, award-winning eco-adventurist and filmmaker Frank Wolf with friend Todd McGowan biked, hiked,  and paddled the GPS track of the proposed Northern Gateway Pipeline, talking to people from all walks of life whom they met along the way. With humour and open heart, they recorded their journey, providing us with the opportunity not only to see the landscape that will bear the risks and consequences of the proposed pipeline but also to hear the often unheard perspectives of those living along the estimated 5.5 billion dollar mega-project.

The South Shore Chapter of the Council of Canadians will screen On The Line  Friday. October 18 at 7:30 p.m. at the Mahone Bay Centre. The documentary is, of course, relevant for those who live along the proposed 1,170 kilometre oil pipeline from Bruderheim, Alberta to Kitimat, British Columbia. For us on the South Shore, it is also relevant for anyone interested in national energy issues in general, including the potential negative impact on natural resources, people’s livelihoods, and energy security for Nova Scotians. Particularly important are the film’s lessons about the scientific capacity to perform successful “clean ups” on different terrains.
 
Everyone is welcome to attend and join the open discussion after the viewing. Admission is free but donations will be accepted to help cover rental costs. Refreshments, including Fair Trade coffee, will be served.
