Directly Affected: Voices for our coast

    Video

    As public participation in the Kinder Morgan review is restricted, we provide a means to connect the disparate voices of individuals and communities not being heard by decision makers. Our film is curious about what connects us, despite differences in place, space and time. It's about understanding what we truly value in our lives, on our coast and in our country. Our narrative will weave the diversity of human connections with the place itself. From fishermen working on the Fraser River to beachcombers on the windswept coast of Haida Gwaii - First Nations preserving a culture to sea kayakers and surfers directly immersed in the ocean itself. As the link between terrestrial and marine environment defines the ecology of the Salish Sea - so our shared values can protect it.
