The Tar Sands Reporting Project is closing in on our stretch goal of $60,000 to film a documentary but we only have a critical 1 day left.
Reaching this goal will mean we will take Peabody award-winning filmmaker, Bill Weaver, to where change really happens: in homes and at dinner tables across British Columbia.
It's in this intimate setting where environmentalists, industrial workers, and ordinary people like you and me talk with each other about how we feel about the environment, the economy, our values our hopes, and our country's future.
Then, we'll take it back to the blockades, the corporate offices, the marches, the parties, and the gas pump -- where all of us put our talk into action.
With your help, we'll produce and distribute a provocative film that will go beyond the issues, to the very DNA of change, and encourage constructive discussion across all points of view. It's the only way we're going to find the innovative solutions we so badly need.
This is an amazing moment. KeystoneXL pipeline, Enbridge's proposed pipeline, and Kinder Morgan's pipeline expansion, hang in the balance.
With Enbridge and Kinder Morgan, British Columbia's coastline may also very well hang in the balance, too. On Thursday, the Natural Resources Ministry announced a $22-million campaign to sell Canada's tar sands abroad. Let's not let their story be the main story the world hears.
