Winds of Change: Dylan James Powell and Marineland Animal Defense, Eric Nordal from Social Coast, Richard Boyce’s new enviro-project

Dylan James Powell and his Marineland Animal Defense friends are prepared to greet the 52nd season of Ontario’s Marineland.  They don’t think wild animals including bison, elk, deer, belugas, and orca whales ought to be trapped in captivity offering tricks for humans.  Dylan talks about the million dollar lawsuit Marineland has launched against him, some ex-employees who dared to speak out about what they witnessed, and the Toronto Star who reported on it.  Dylan also participates in TheVeganPolice.com, with an animal liberation podcast.  Then, Eric Nordal from Social Coast with some activist activities.  And Richard Boyce, long time forest defender on Vancouver Island and award making film-maker, and his new project – CoastalTarsands.ca.  While Enbridge has a $350 million budget for their public relations effort to convince us it’s a good idea to build pipelines through ancient forest and add hundreds of tankers to the rugged BC coastline, Richard is relying on donations to help him travel north this summer to document the beauty of the region and let people make up their own minds about whether it’d be a good idea to allow Enbridge to proceed.
