On Wednesday, Jan. 6, The Fort St. James Sustainability Group had a screening for ‘On The Line’, a documentary about two guys biking, hiking, rafting and kayaking on the proposed pipeline.

In 2008 Frank Wolf and Todd McGowan brought a couple small cameras with them as they traversed the rugged landscape of B.C. to see for themselves the proposed spaces the pipeline, and the builders of the pipeline, are set to cross.

The film gave a very personal view of a line most people are, at best, only familiar with on a map. The rough going, and beautiful scenery made their argument, without the two men having to say anything.

 

The film is now available to rent at the public library for anyone who is interested.
