Enbridge pipeline talk hosted at UVic

A panel of University of Victoria geography and environmental studies scholars

A panel of University of Victoria geography and environmental studies scholars and a leader from the Heiltsuk Nation will discuss the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway oil pipeline and tanker project on Friday.

They will provide interdisciplinary insight into what has motivated the groundswell of opposition from a wide spectrum of British Columbians.

The talk will follow screening of the surfing documentary Groundswell.

Groundswell documents not only a surfing adventure, but also a movement of growing and powerful opposition,” said Chris Darimont, UVic assistant geography professor and Hakai-Raincoast conservation scholar.

“It beautifully and profoundly captures the spirit of this unspoiled coast and the passion of the Heiltsuk First Nation people.”

The UVic event takes place from 7 to 9 p.m. in room B105 of UVic’s Harry Hickman building.
