This Thursday! Fracking the Peace + expert panel on Woodfibre LNG
September 6, 2022
This Thursday in Squamish, join us for a FREE community screening of Fracking the Peace, a powerful new documentary telling the story of community members living on Treaty 8 territory in Northeastern B.C. whose daily lives, homes, environment, and health have been changed by fracking in the region.
The screening will be followed by an expert panel and Q&A to discuss the local impacts of Woodfibre LNG in Squamish:
- Tracey Saxby, marine scientist and Executive Director of My Sea to Sky, will share eight years of research on Woodfibre LNG and the FortisBC pipeline.
- Sue Brown, Director of Advocacy and Policy at Justice for Girls, will speak about the impacts of work camps on communities.
- Spencer Fitschen, former oil and gas regulator at Technical Safety BC, will speak about the consequences of FortisBC's proposed high-pressure pipeline near homes and businesses.
We encourage you to RSVP below to get updates about the event.
