Join acclaimed director Velcrow Ripper on a journey deep inside the global revolution of the heart that is erupting around the planet. Humanity is waking up to the fact that the dominant system of power is failing to provide us with health, happiness or meaning.
The resulting crisis has become the catalyst for a profound transformation: millions of people are deciding that enough is enough -- the time has come to create a new world, a world that works for all life..
As a result of Bill C-38 and a dramatically weakened Canadian Environmental Assessment Act, applicants for public participation in the National Energy Board (NEB) review of the Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain Expansion proposal had to prove they were either "directly affected" or had relevant knowledge or expertise.
This qualification, coupled with a seemingly intentionally onerous online application process, left many individuals and communities excluded from sharing their opinions within the review process. Directly Affected was our response to the frustration felt by communities across BC who want to have their voices heard.
There will be dialogue opportunities between video presentations.
