Join VIMFF for a powerful and inspiring evening to move beyond extreme energy and protect our communities, oceans and our very backyard. 

Join Canada’s best known environmentalist, David Suzuki, who has a deep and personal connection to the Salish Sea. His presentation will speak to that connection and learn more about what we can do as a community can do to protect the places we love.

Heavy industrial projects are still being proposed for Howe Sound, including Woodfibre LNG, its associated FortisBC pipeline and compressor station at Mt. Mulligan, and the Burnco gravel mine in the McNab Creek watershed. Marine Scientist and Award-winning Environmental Activist, Tracey Saxby, and Extreme Energy Researcher, Eoin Finn, both Founding Members ofMySeatoSky.org, will talk about the latest status of these projects and why they believe heavy industry and extreme energy is not a fit for Howe Sound. 

In addition to these great guest speakers, we will finish off the evening with the World Premiere of the film Directly Affected directed by Zack Embree. Before the Kinder Morgan pipeline was in the daily news, Vancouver filmmaker, Zack set out on a mission: to understand the impacts of the pipeline on local communities and give voice back to those who had been silenced by the National Energy Board process.
