Hinton chapter event

Last night’s screening of ‘This Changes Everything’ by the Hinton chapter.

The Council of Canadians Hinton chapter screened the film ‘This Changes Everything’ last night.

Hinton is a town of about 9,640 people situated in the Athabasca River valley about 280 kilometres west of Edmonton.

The chapter has posted on their Facebook page that, “We had our free community screening of This Changes Everything at the Hinton Library. There was a great turnout of over 40 people. Some people even came from Jasper and Edson [which are about 80-90 kilometres away]. Thanks everybody and thanks to the great staff at the library.”

To date, more than 3,505 people have gone to chapter-organized screenings in Montreal, Saskatoon, DuncanEloraCharlottetown, Yellowknife, Prince Albert, Chilliwack, Ladner, Mabou, Windsor, Courtenay, Saint John, St. John’s, Sudbury, Golden, Terrace, Regina, Fredericton, Powell River, Thunder Bay and now Hinton.

Twenty-six Council of Canadians chapters have worked to screen this film. Upcoming screenings include Picton (Dec. 5), London (Dec. 7) and Peterborough (Jan. 29-31).

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.”
