A Story With Two Ends

Following is a forwarded message through Rafe Mair from Karen McAllister. Unfortunately there are no dates set for the interior or Northern BC as yet but we can hope. The $5 suggested donation is fairly inexpensive compared to the liberals multi hundred dollar dinners to listen to the lies spewed by the prem.

Rafe here ... if you can make one of these dates I urge you to do that and please pass this on to people close to this site.

Hello all!
FYI. Hope that you can make one of these presentations.  Please pass on to those who may be interested in attending. . .[snip]

Best, Karen McAllister

Join Ian McAllister, Conservation Director of Pacific Wild, and journalist Andrew Nikiforuk as they describe the beauty and complexity of British Columbia's Great Bear Rainforest and look at how Canada's dirty oil industry threatens BC and our nation.

Ian and Andrew are outlining the stories surrounding both ends of the proposed Enbridge pipeline, from the Alberta Tar Sands to Kitimat’s pristine waters.  This compelling muti-media presentation will provide an in-depth and intimate view along the pipeline and tanker route.

For the last two decades, Andrew Nikiforuk has written about energy, economics and Western North America for a variety of Canadian publications including The Walrus, Maclean's, Canadian Business, The Globe and Mail, Chatelaine, Georgia Straight,Equinox and Harrowsmith.  His latest book, Tar Sands: Dirty Oil and the Future of the Continent, has won him the Rachel Carson Environment Book Award and the W.O Mitchell City of Calgary Book Award. Nikiforuk lives with his wife and three sons in Calgary, Alberta.  Whether speaking or writing about melting glaciers, educational shams, peak oil, or the destruction of the boreal forest, Nikiforuk has earned a reputation as an honest and provocative voice in Canadian journalism.
Ian McAllister is a leading advocate for BC's wild places.  His conservation efforts have won Time Magazine's "Leader for the 21st Century Award." His photography was recently awarded the North American Photography Associations Vision Award and both his books on the BC coast have won the BC Booksellers Choice Award.   He is a co-founder of the BC -based wildlife conservation group Pacific Wild, a non-profit dedicated to wildlife research, public education and informed advocacy. He lives on the central coast of BC with his wife and two children.
