Please join us for a screening of the documentary film, There's Something in the Water, followed by a conversation with producer Dr. Ingrid Waldron, Dr. David Suzuki, and three fabulous frontline community activists (who are profiled in the film).

You'll hear from:

Dr. Ingrid Waldron, Director, The ENRICH Project Dr. David Suzuki, Co-founder, The David Suzuki Foundation Dorene Bernard, Mi’kmaq Grassroots Activist Louise Delisle, President, South End Environmental Injustice Society (SEED) Michelle Francis-Denny, Member of Pictou Landing First Nation and community liaison for the Boat Harbour Remediation Project Sherry Yano (moderator), Energy Transition Manager, David Suzuki Foundation

As a result of the resurgence of the Black Lives Matter movement, long overdue conversations about environmental racism and the intersection of racism and environmental justice are actively taking place across Canada.

This documentary film offers an opportunity to bring this important conversation to our community and amplify the voices of the activists on the ground in parts of Canada facing various threats against their rights and the environment.
