Kootenays for a Pipeline-Free BC hosts Call from Whales forum

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 in Nelson, May 30th at 7 p.m.

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.

“This forum is an entry point which gives concerned people an opportunity to become engaged and learn more about what’s at stake," said Nadine Podmoroff, conference coordinator.

“So these visions can transform into positive ways of living with all life."

According to Nathan Cullen, MP, 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 “go/no go” decisions on the building of the proposed BC Northern Gateway Pipeline. 

Kootenays for a Pipeline-Free BC provides updated, quality 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.

“We have an abundance of people in BC who wish to protect the environment and sacred places which wildlife calls home”, said Sandra Nelken, member of Nelson Chapter Council of Canadians.
