At first, they ignore you, then they ridicule you, then they fight you, then you win.
BUT before that, you arm yourself with knowledge.
If you're feeling overwhelmed, frustrated, or really ready for change, you're not alone.
Which is why we want to bring you and others together so we can amplify voices fighting for change, collectively educate ourselves, and then decide how we can move forward together for change.
The BC Green Party in collaboration with Stand.Earth is excited to bring you an opportunity to view the documentary Fracking the Peace. This film tells the stories of the people whose daily lives, environment, and health have been forever changed by fracking and its related industrialization on Treaty 8 territory in Northeast B.C. If left unchecked, the planned expansion of fracking and LNG in B.C. will also have global climate impacts – far beyond provincial borders.
Our local teams will be screening Fracking the Peace at a variety of locations and times, details are below. Mark you calendars and let's work together to keep pressuring our leaders to protect our communities and our planet:
Duncan November 5th 2:30 to 4:30 PM
Nanaimo November 4th 6:00 to 8:00 PM
Nelson November 8th 6:00 to 8:00 PM

Protecting your health
BC Greens recognize that airborne illnesses and pollutants pose a significant health risk to everyone, especially the young, elderly, and immunocompromised, while caregivers, healthcare professionals, and support staff come into regular contact with vulnerable persons. When choosing venues, BC Greens prioritize outdoor spaces, and indoor spaces with good ventilation. In closed indoor spaces, we encourage attendees to wear well-fitting masks (N95, KN95, or KF94), especially during the respiratory-illness season.
Creating safe spaces
The BC Green Party is committed to providing an environment free of discrimination and harassment, where all individuals are treated with respect and dignity, can contribute fully and have equal speaking opportunities. To support this commitment, all event attendees will be expected to follow the standards of our Safe Spaces Participant's Guide.
