Photos: ‘This Changes Everything’ in Saint John and St. John’s.
The Council of Canadians chapters in St. John’s, Newfoundland & Labrador and Saint John, New Brunswick screened the film ‘This Changes Everything’ last night.
Saint John chapter activist Lynaya Astephen posted, “Had 100 people show up to watch This Changes Everything! Great turn out! Wonderful to see and the film was great!” The St. John’s chapter also had a successful screening of the film last night.
Our Sudbury chapter will be showing the film tonight.
The Sudbury Star has reported, “The event is 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. …Elaine Porter, a member of the Sudbury Chapter of the Council of Canadians, said the group is happy to bring ‘This Changes Everything’ to the city.”
Porter adds, “We see the impact of climate change in our own community, in the form of increased storms and flooding, the growth and spreading of invasive species, in the arrival of lyme disease, and in shorter snow seasons. We see the impact around the world. And, we see a growing need and desire for a better world where we care for each other and for our Earth. We are thrilled to be bringing this film to Sudbury, on the territory of the Atikameksheng Anishnawbek First Nation, and we encourage everyone to attend.”
To date, more than 2,410 people have gone to chapter-organized screenings in Montreal, Saskatoon, Duncan, Elora, Charlottetown, Yellowknife, Prince Albert, Chilliwack, Ladner, Mabou, Windsor, Courtenay, Saint John and St. John’s.
