About the film:

Fracking the Peace follows community members living on Treaty 8 territory in Northeastern B.C. as they tell the story of how fracking has impacted their lives. Home to the majestic Peace River, this region has been ravaged by more than 31,000 fracking wells threatening livelihoods, physical and mental health, and the very water that sustains the life and spirit of these communities. Fracking in B.C. is currently responsible for the majority of B.C.’s methane emissions. Methane is a powerful greenhouse gas that is 86x more toxic for the atmosphere than CO2, and has been historically under-reported in B.C. Yet the fracking industry receives the single largest oil and gas subsidy from the B.C. government. Fracking the Peace paints a picture of how fracking development in B.C. has been allowed to skyrocket at the expense of the health and safety of watersheds, communities, and the rich agricultural landscape they call home.

Fracking the Peace was created by Desiree Wallace in partnership with Stand.earth
