Windsor-Essex chapter screens ‘This Changes Everything’ to help build climate justice movement


The Council of Canadians Windsor-Essex chapter, in collaboration with Windsor On Watch, showed the film ‘This Changes Everything’ at the University of Windsor yesterday.

Windsor On Watch notes, “We had 80+ people there and had a lively discussion afterward.” The chapter and WOW organized “the free showing in order to generate greater community awareness of the dangers posed by uncontrolled climate change” and “as a first step to building a climate justice movement in Windsor”.

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. Upcoming screenings include: Courtenay (Nov. 24), Saint John (Nov. 26), St. John’s (Nov. 26), Sudbury (Nov. 27), Golden (Nov. 29), Regina (Nov. 29), Hinton (Nov. 30), Picton (Dec. 5), London (Dec. 7) and Peterborough (Jan. 29-31).

To date, more than 1,830 people have gone to chapter-organized screenings in Montreal, Saskatoon, DuncanEloraCharlottetown, Yellowknife, Prince Albert, Chilliwack, Ladner, Mabou and Windsor.
