The impact of energy development is on the agenda in Duncan Tuesday night.
The United Church and Cowichan Green Community are presenting “Report from the Front Line – the Unist’ot’en Camp”
The Unist’ot’en Camp, was set up by the First Nation in 2010, around a hundred kilometers inland from Kitimat, and right in the path of several proposed pipelines, including Northern Gateway.
Catherine Wallace says that puts them at the center of what they see as a critical question for Canada; “Is our future to be tied to the fossil fuel industry or will we chart a path of transition to alternative energy sources and to the protection of our land and water?”
The event tonight at 7 at Duncan United Church will feature Chiefs and Elders from Unist’ot’en, as well as video presentations, other speakers and a Q & A session.
Wallace says they’ll also be taking donations in support of the Camp.
