Members of North West Watch and Douglas Channel Watch protest in Brolly Square Oct. 1.

Conservation groups screen new film ‘Salish’ in Terrace

Groups also protested in Brolly Square with bright blue anti-Enbridge signs

A crowd opposing Enbridge and its pipeline to Kitimat from Alberta raised their protest signs in Brolly Square earlier today, Oct. 1.

Members of North West Watch and Douglas Channel Watch want to keep the issue of Enbridge and the environment in the public, and the government’s, eye as the federal election gets closer.

Along those lines too is a screening of filmmaker Ali Harris’s new film Sail(ish) Friday night.

Sail(ish) tells the story of The Salish Sea Tour, which took six change-makers through the Salish Sea to unite communities around the protection of the local waters and to celebrate the viability of renewable energy.

The film also includes music from Vancouver-based folk musician Luke Wallace’s new record Little Rivers Matter Too.

The event will begin at 8 p.m. Oct. 2 at SkeenaWild Conservation Trust (4444 Lakelse Ave.).

Admission by donation to cover Wallace’s costs.

All the proceeds go towards helping the filmmakers share their story and push for the conservation of the northwest coastline.
