Forum in Nelson throws pipeline into spotlight

Kootenays for a Pipeline-Free BC transports the people on a moving journey, through Calls from Whales,

Kootenays for a Pipeline-Free BC transports the people on a moving journey, through Calls from Whales, a forum on the impacts of the Enbridge BC oil pipeline, at the Capitol Theatre on May 30.

The forum features Andrew Nikiforuk, investigative reporter and author of award winning book Tar Sands: Dirty Oil and the  Future of a Continent; Art Sterritt, executive chair of the Coastal First Nations; and Billy Jo Bray, president of Visions for our Future.  It includes high tech power point visuals, locally produced multi media presentations, inspirational panels and surprise guests.

According to NDP MP Nathan Cullen, the federal government has removed decision making authority from the National Energy Board’s joint review panel, giving the Conservative government decision making rights to making final decisions on the building of the proposed BC Northern Gateway Pipeline.

Calls from Whales provides education and is framed in such a way that the audience can connect with possible visions of what it could be like if Enbridge gets the go ahead.  It’s an entry point which gives concerned people an opportunity to become engaged and learn more about what’s at stake so these visions can be transformed into positive ways of living with all life.
