Fractured Land evening

Fractured Land

Join in an informative night of film and guest speakers to learn more about the implications of LNG expansion in Richmond and Delta and how it relates to the Massey Tunnel Replacement Project.

The evening features a special screening of the award-winning Fractured Land, made by BC film-makers Damien Gillis and Fiona Rayher. It tells the story of Caleb Behn, a young Dene lawyer, and the effect of fracking for LNG in Northern BC on his people’s land. The film follows Caleb as he seeks to discover how to reconcile the fractures within himself, his community and the world around him, blending modern tools of the law with ancient wisdom. Trailer here.

After the film, a panel of speakers will “connect the dots” between fracking, LNG expansion and the bridge proposal. We will also discuss what actions we can take to protect the Fraser River and our communities.
