Cowichan Valley chapter has 200 people at local ‘This Changes Everything’ screening

Cowichan Valley screening

200 people were at the Cowichan Valley chapter screening of This Changes Everything on Nov. 8.

The Council of Canadians Cowichan Valley chapter had more than 200 people out for an afternoon screening of ‘This Changes Everything’ in Duncan, British Columbia this past Sunday (Nov. 8).

Chapter activist Donna Cameron tells us, “Our This Changes Everything film screening was a huge success. We had to bring in more chairs to accommodate the extra crowd. We estimate we had 200 people turn out. We had our table set up and two other local groups, Cowichan Green Community and Transition Cowichan had tables as well. We had a bit of discussion after the film and handed out a list of 11 local groups people could contact if they wanted to get involved.”

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:

Chapters have already organized screenings in Saskatoon (on Oct. 10) and Montreal (on Oct. 5, where 700 people came out to watch the film).
