MEDIA RELEASE:  THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING is in Sudbury this Friday, and you’ll want to be there

THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING is in Sudbury this Friday, and you’ll want to be there

For Immediate Release

Sudbury, November 24, 2015 -  Has blue green algae arrived in your lake or river?  Has your basement flooded with bigger and more frequent rain storms?  Do you worry about the arrival of lyme disease?  Do you miss a longer season for skiing, snowmobiling, or ice fishing?  Climate change impacts all of us. 

THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING presents the powerful idea that in addressing the crisis of climate change we can transform our failed economic system into something radically better.

Join us for this powerful message of hope, change and positive action:

  •                 Friday, November 27;  Doors open 6:50 p.m.;  screening 7:30 p.m.
  •                 Fraser Auditorium, Laurentian University
  •                 Screening of THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING, followed by panel discussion and audience Q&A
  •                 Suggested donation $10.00.  All welcome.

Hosted by:  The Council of Canadians (National), The Council of Canadians (Sudbury Chapter), Laurentian University School of the Environment, and Coalition for a Liveable Sudbury, in association with Sudbury Indie Cinema.

 

Engage with local panelists in this important conversation.

-  Brandon Petahtegoose, speaking as an an Anishinaabe from Atikameksheng, his traditional land, and where Laurentian University is situated.

     -  Cathy Orlando, National Manager of Citizens' Climate Lobby Canada

Donations will go towards event costs and to Atikameksheng Anishnawbek First Nation to assess and address arsenic contamination in Round Lake.

Based  on  the  critically  acclaimed  non-fiction  best-seller  by  award-winning  journalist  and  author, Naomi  Klein,  THIS CHANGES EVERYTHING presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines of  both  fossil  fuel  extraction  and  the  climate  crisis  it  is driving.  

“We are excited to be bringing this important film to the community and to our students,” said Brett Buchanan, Director of the School of the Environment.
