"To the Tar Sands" Book Launch and Film Screening

In 2007, nineteen young environmentalists travelled Alberta
by bike, attempting to wrap their head around one of biggest
industrial mega-projects in the world: the Alberta tar sands.
They went from one small town to the next, meeting with the
locals and asking one question:
how has the tar sands boom impacted your life?

The 3-week long bike trip was a fact finding mission, a
storytelling adventure and a life-changing experience for all
involved. The culmination of that trip is the recent release
of a book entitled "Journey To The Tar Sands"
(www.tothetarsands.ca) co-authored by 12 of the cyclists,
as well as a feature-length documentary
(www.tothetarsandsfilm.ca) which was recently featured
at the Calgary International Film Festival.
