REPORTING · 26th November 2011
Members of the community gathered in the community room at Riverlodge to watch the documentary, “On the Line,” a video about the Enbridge Pipeline on November 24th.
The video starts in Alberta and follows Frank Wolf as he travels the route of the pipeline, talking to people along the way. During his expedition, he bikes along roads, hikes through mountains, rafts the Kitimat River and Kayaks the Douglas Channel.
As Wolf travels, he comments about where he is and what spill would mean in some of these areas. While he is traveling, the Kalamazoo spill occurs so there is comment on this as well. Finally, when he arrives in Kitimat, much like the Documentary, Black Gold, White Water, he arrives for the Joint Review Panel and the Rally outside of Riverlodge.
People interviewed along the line include a farmer, the owner of children’s park and a worker specializing in environmental clean up. In BC, he talks with First Nation’s who do not want the pipeline crossing a river significant to their Heritage, a Former City Councillor in Smithers and in Kitimat, he has an extensive interview with Member of Parliament, Nathan Cullen.
This video is the second in a series of documentaries put on by Douglas Channel Watch. They hope their next one will be shown in January.
