UBC Reads Sustainability presents Sarah Cox

Award-winning Victoria based journalist Sarah Cox will discuss her book Breaching the Peace: The Site C Dam and a Valley’s Stand against Big Hydro. This talk is part of the Climate Solutions Showcase, hosted by UBC Climate Hub.

When: October 25th | 12:30-2PM
Where: Performance Theatre at the AMS Nest
FREE: RSVP required

This book is a modern-day David-and-Goliath story that stands as a much needed cautionary tale during an era when concerns about global warming have helped justify a renaissance of environmentally irresponsible hydro megaprojects around the world.  Sarah Cox reveals the true costs and hidden dangers of the project, as told to her by the local farmers, ranchers, and First Nations leaders who tried to stop the dam and the wholesale destruction of their valley in courts of law and the court of public opinion.
