Socials 8-3: Stand movie (Also viewed by SS 8-1 and 8-2)

Today we had the chance to listen to a presentation from The Take A Stand for Conservation team about the Great Bear Forest located on the northern BC coast and the environmental issues associated with the proposed pipeline and requisite oil tanker traffic that many are concerned about. The introductory slides were beautiful, but Norm Hann, the speaker, made them more impactful. Next, we watched Stand, the movie. It is interesting to note that Mr. Tiechrob's brother was a key player in the filming and post-production of this project. I'm always amazed at the number of talented people who are from, or are still living around the Coast. At the end of the film, we learned about a contest to have people compose their own 30-60 videos about a host of nature-related topics. I hope that you will use today's experience to engage in some conversations about this issue. A conversation around the dinner table tonight might be a good place to start. What will you say when your folks ask, "What did you do in school today?"

Interested in the video contest that the team talked about?
