No Impact Man and The Cove

Eastwood Collegiate's IMPACT group is running a special showing of the film The Cove this Friday, November 20, at 5:00 at the Princess Cinema for $10 each. If you want to guarantee a seat, contact Sheena Gruber, Adam Kasper or Byran Oates at Eastwood, 519-743-8265. Warn any students that it gets very graphic. The one issue I have with the film and campaign though, is that we seem to feel horrible distress over the slaughter of dolphins, but people don't rally around the painful living conditions and subsequent slaughter of cows and pigs and chickens nearly as much. Is it because dolphins look like they're smiling or that they can do tricks?

KCI's OneEarth club is hosting an international premiere of No Impact Man on Wednesday, December 16th at 7:00 pm in our auditorium at 787 King Street West in Kitchener. Tickets are $5.00 at the door, but please let me know if you plan to bring a group. We'll be selling books and DVDs and some eco-products at the door as well. Cash only please. The movie is about a family that tried to live without having an impact on the environment for one year - no gas-powered transportation, no disposable anything, no garbage. It's two days before Christmas break, but it's the perfect time to think about our mass-consumer livestyles!

That's it!
