Join us for a provocative discussion involving local environmental activism featuring key figures in the movement.

Moderated by Postmedia News journalist Larry Pynn, panelists Charlene Aleck, Roxanne Charles, Sophie Harrison and Karen Mahon will speak to their experiences fighting for environmental protection in Clayoquot Sound, Great Bear Rainforest, Burnaby Mountain and beyond. This discussion will serve as a survey of environmental battles over the years, and the activism that has served the front lines of environmental preservation. Intimate discussions surrounding protest strategies in British Columbia and their evolution will be considered. The relationship print media has with environmental campaigns and the rise of social media as a source for activism and counter-activism will be discussed. The alliance between environmental movements and First Nations will be considered, particularly in relation to Kinder Morgan and Trans Mountain Pipeline.

Date: Thursday, February 15, 2018

Time: 7:00pm – 9:00pm

Admission: Early bird (prior to 4pm on February 14): $10; *After 4pm on February 14: $15. Free to MOV Members and individuals who identify as First Nations.
