Directly Affected: Where We Live

WHAT MOTIVATES ORDINARY PEOPLE TO STAND UP TO MULTI-BILLION DOLLAR ENERGY GIANTS?

Directly Affected is a documentary project about the battle between everyday people and a multibillion-dollar energy industry. Right now, a Houston-based energy company intends to transport 890,000 barrels of unrefined Alberta Tarsands oil to BC’s coast through the Trans Mountain pipeline. Millions of barrels will be stored in our communities and over 400 tankers will ship the diluted bitumen through the Salish Sea to foreign markets every year. Our first documentary brought together the disparate voices of individuals and communities not being heard by decision makers. In this series, we go to regions across the province to meet the courageous people who are standing up for democracy, local economies, their environment and a better future for all.
