Fracking the Peace profiles community members in Northeastern B.C. as they relate how fracking has impacted their lives. The majestic Peace River region in Treaty 8 territory is scarred by more than 25,000 fracking wells. The video paints a picture of how fracking in B.C. has skyrocketed at the expense of the health and safety of watersheds, livelihoods, communities, and rich agricultural landscapes. Fracking the Peace is by filmmaker Desiree Wallace in partnership with Stand.earth

The film will be followed by a talk and discussion with Dr. Warren Bell, past Founding President of CAPE (Canadian Association of Physicians for the Environment). The screening is co-hosted by Citizens Climate Lobby Okanagan and First Things First Okanagan.
