Trailer - Groundswell - A Small Film About Taking A Big Stand

We posted this for two reasons; the first being that we are great fans of a Malloy brothers documentary, and the second being that this is an issue that is very close to our heart. At great environmental risk, and against the wishes of an overwhelming majority of British Columbians and aboriginal people, the Enbridge Northern Gateway project would pipe tar sands oil from Alberta to the coast of BC for delivery to markets in Asia and California. Last fall, Raincoast Conservation Foundation teamed up with filmmaker and Patagonia surf ambassador Chris Malloy to highlight all that's at stake. Being that we enjoy our province and all it has to offer, we agree whole heartedly with the Raincoast Conservation Foundation that there aren't many ideas that are worse than this one. The film just wrapped up screenings throughout the Pacific Northwest area, and just in time too. The second round of "public consultations" take place this week.
