Centre Wellington chapter hosts successful screening of This Changes Everything

Gorge Cinema

The Gorge Cinema in Elora.

The Council of Canadians Centre Wellington chapter had a successful screening of This Changes Everything in Elora, Ontario this past Friday (Nov. 13).

Chapter activist Diane Ballantyne tells us that the 136-seat Gorge Cinema was near capacity for the evening screening and that 50 high school students attended a screening that morning as well. She also highlights that everyone received a Leap manifesto pamphlet and a reminder about the Nov. 15 deadline to comment against the proposed Nestle water-testing permit.

As noted on the film’s website, “The film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein’s narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there. Throughout the film, Klein builds to her most controversial and exciting idea: that we can seize the existential crisis of climate change to transform our failed economic system into something radically better.”

Twenty-six Council of Canadians chapters are hosting community screenings of this film. Those upcoming screenings include:
