The Halifax Screening is Next!


We’re launched on the tour! And it’s going beautifully.

We showed the Green Rights film at Acadia University in Wolfville on Monday and had a very warm reception. I did a little Facebook Livecast that morning – I intend to use FB Live often as the tour goes on. Yesterday in Truro, I spoke about Warrior Lawyers to an enthusiastic awards luncheon for volunteers in Nova Scotia’s Adopt-a-Road program. Tomorrow, Sept 22, Marjorie and I are on Global TV’s Halifax morning show at 7:50 AM, and I’m on Rick Howe’s radio show at 12:00 on News 95.7. Friday morning I’m on CBC’s Information Morning from Halifax at 6:45 AM.

Then on Sunday is the next big event: the Halifax screening of Green Rights: The Human Right to a Healthy World, at 2:00 PM at Mount St. Vincent University, 166 Bedford Highway, with a question-and-answer and informal reception to follow. The Facebook event page is here:

Meanwhile, Marjorie has three book signings coming up: Friday, September 23 at Coles Scotia Square, from 12:00 – 2:00; Saturday, September 24, at Chapters Bayers Lake, from 12:00 – 1:30, and that afternoon, at Chapters Mic Mac Mall, from 2:30 -4:00.

You can stream the film for free at any time from You’ll be asked to join the site as a subscriber, which is free for the first month and $10/month thereafter – but you can simply cancel during the first month if you don’t want to continue. We’re asking you to accept a month’s trial in return for streaming the film because this site allows us to do projects like Green Rights, and we hope that the film’s success will help us grow the site. And we put up a new extended interview with an environmental leader every month. Coming up: Todd Labrador, the Mi’kmaq birch canoe builder talking about the art and craft of his work, and its relation to traditional indigeous culture and spirituality.

I’m finding that posting to the blog tends to get overlooked as the days race by. So please follow me or Greenrightsfilm on Facebook, where I tend to post quick notes when there isn’t time for the blog.

Meanwhile, come and join us on Sunday!
