Just out! Silver Donald Cameron on the View 902 podcast!

View902Nova Scotia artists and cultural critics Paul Andrew Kimball and Ron Foley Macdonald are the publishers of the podcast View 902 ( For those outside Nova Scotia, “902” is the province’s area code.) In the site’s current feature interview, Kimball engages Silver Donald Cameron in an extended conversation about Cameron’s new book Warrior Lawyers: From Manila to Manhattan, Attorneys for the Earth. In Kimball’s description:

“We discuss the concept of natural law, and our duty of care as human beings to the planet and to the creatures with which we share it, and talk about a couple of examples from the book of lawyers and others who have engaged in citizen activism and used the law to combat corporate wrongdoing and change government policy on the environment.

“I end with a song I wrote way back in 1991 and recorded, but never released, with my band Julia’s Rain in 1995. Called “Shadows Grow,” I never thought it would be even more relevant today than ever. “Our pockets kill the fields” is still true, sadly, but thankfully folks like Silver Donald Cameron and the men and women he interviews in Warrior Lawyers are making a difference.”

Your film is really top notch, and we can’t wait to show it as the lead documentary at our Erin eco-film series next Wednesday [January 18]. THANK YOU. You and Chris Beckett make a fantastic team!

No, Liz, thank you. We hope your festival is a huge success.
