Oil documentary playing in Hudson
Producer to attend, answer questions
A Hudson environmental group will screen the documentary H2Oil tomorrow night at the Stephen F. Shaar Community Centre, located at 394 Main Rd. inHudson.
Go Green Hudson will show the controversial film by ShannonWalsh which investigates the effects of Alberta’s oil sands on the province’s water supply, and how some are trying to defend the water against tar sands expansion.
The group notes that it takes up to four barrels of fresh water to produce one barrel of crude oil fromAlberta’s oil sands.
In addition, the film’s producer, Sarah Spring, will attend the screening, answer questions and take part in a discussion after the film. The screening is the group’s first event of their 2009-2010 Film/Seminar Series. A free screening of H2Oil will take place on Dec. 10. The film starts at 7:30 p.m.
