"Voices from the Sacrifice Zone" comes to Coquitam this week

Over the last two decades, fracking has rapidly spread across the Peace Region of BC, ushering in dramatic changes to the health of its lands, waters and peoples. Join us this Thursday in Coquitlam to hear candid, first-person perspectives from a diverse range of northern BC residents on their experiences with the LNG industry - and their thoughts about a renewable alternative.

Here are the details:
