The Green Rights Maritimes Tour! September 22 – October 2, 2017
Last September, Marjorie Simmins and I toured from coast to coast in Merlin, our 34-foot motorhome. I lectured and showed the 67-minute film Green Rights: The Human Right to a Healthy World, in universities, churches and community halls, and we both sold books.
This fall, to my delight, the New Brunswick Environmental Network will host a new screening tour in New Brunswick. (Marjorie, unfortunately, won’t be with me.) The tour will also include stops in Truro, NS and Charlottetown, PEI.
- Sept 22 Truro, NS Eco-Connects NS Gathering 6:00 Glengarry Inn
- Sept 25 Sackville, NB Mount Allison University 7:00 Vogue Theatre
- Sept 26 Rexton, NB Council of Canadians, Kent County 7:00 Bonar Law High School
- Sept 27 Fredericton, NB Conservation Council of NB 7:00 Conserver House
- Sept 28 Gagetown, NB Voices for Sust. Environments 7:00 Royal Canadian Legion
- Sept 29 Saint John, NB Council of Canadians, Saint John 7:00 Rm 230, Oland Hall, UNB-Saint John
- Oct 1 Petitcodiac, NB Conservation Council of NB 2:00 Motor Sports Hall of Fame
- Oct 2 Charlottetown, PEI ERWG-BlueDotPEI/Citizens’ Alliance 7:00 The Guild Theatre
I’m really delighted that an impressive group of environmental organizations has chosen to support the tour. In addition to NBSEN, the tour has the support of the Conservation Council of New Brunswick, Mount Allison University, the Council of Canadians, Voices for Sustainable Environments and Communities, the New Brunswick Anti Shale Gas Alliance, Stop Spraying New Brunswick, the Environmental Rights Working Groups in both New Brunswick and PEI, the Nova Scotia Environmental Network, the Citizens Alliance of PEI and the NB Media Co-op.
We’ll be holding a question-and-answer session after every screening, and in some venues — notably Charlottetown — we’ll have a bar. I’ll be posting regular updates this month on Facebook and Twitter as the plans progress, and I’m hoping to post video during the tour itself via Facebook Live.
I’m hoping to connect with a lot of readers, viewers and allies along the way, too. If you haven’t seen it, the film’s trailer is here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9LHM8jSeaes&t=6s
