The Kinder Morgan pipeline is the focus of a new documentary that will be shown in Vernon tonight.
“Directly Affected: Pipeline Under Pressure” by filmmaker Zack Embree talks to people impacted by the project, the process used to approve it, and how it could impact climate change.

“Five years ago, filmmaker Zack Embree set out on a mission: to understand the impacts of the Kinder Morgan pipeline on local communities and give a voice back to those who had been ignored by the National Energy Board process,” says a news release from the Sustainable Environmental Network Society, the Vernon group hosting tonight’s viewing.
“What he found was a growing storm of opposition from all walks of life and confusion over Prime Minister Trudeau’s climate plan. How can Canada expect to reduce carbon emissions, while at the same time building a major oil pipeline?” states the release.
The viewing is at 7 pm at the Schubert Centre, with Embree on hand to introduce it and answer questions afterwards.
