Follow Andrew Weaver’s surprising and historic first election campaign as he breaks through BC’s two-party stronghold to become our first Green MLA. Fearing that BC’s climate leadership would fall by the wayside (which it did) Weaver decides to run for a party that had never won a seat in its 30 year history.
The film also explores how far scientists will go to warn of the dangers of runaway climate change, including SFU biologist Lynne Quarmby and former NASA climate scientist James Hansen, who was arrested outside the White House in 2011 protesting the Keystone XL pipeline from the Alberta tarsands. With science leading the way, Running on Climate highlights individuals acting locally to help prevent a global catastrophe.

Our film for November has changed. Vancouver filmmaker Elaine Briere needs more time to edit “Dangerous Hope: Canada’s Betrayal of Democracy in Haiti” and we look forward to seeing her and her new film in 2019.
Instead, we will be showing a related film by another Canadian filmmaker, Montreal-based Amy Miller. Released in 2009 but as relevant and revealing today as ever, “Myths for Profit” depicts the historical context for Canada’s gradual transition from altruistic peacekeeper to our current role as an active participant in military aggression overseas.
The full film can be watched for free at Wide Open Exposure.
