Film Screening and Panel Discussion - Treaties, Profit and Oil: Enbridge Line 9 and "The Good Neighbour" Export this event to calendar

Thursday, March 23, 2017 — 2:30 PM to 4:30 PM EDT

The good Neighbour coverJoin us for a screening of award-winning documentary "The Good Neighbour" along with a discussion on the film, tar sands developments, Indigenous rights, and local oil pipeline resistance. In the documentary, a Norwegian citizen travels to Canada's tar sands, camera in-hand, to find out if Norway's STATOIL is respecting Canadian First Nation's treaty rights — as the company promised.

Panelists:
