1. Fri, Dec. 4: Cinema Politica Fredericton presents Project Power. Cinema Politica Fredericton will screen Project Power on Friday, Dec. 4 at 7pm at 180 St. John St., Fredericton. “Project Power” (Jon Mann, 2014, 102min) is an observational documentary which follows the massive social movement against the sale of New Brunswick Power to Hydro-Quebec by the New Brunswick provincial government during the winter of 2009. A grassroots campaign against the sale of the public utility, organized by the citizens of New Brunswick, became the official opposition to the $ 4.75 billion “done deal” between the New Brunswick and Quebec governments. Battling a provincial government, a multi-national public relations firm, and a monopolized provincial media pushing the deal, New Brunswickers took to the streets, in what became a fight for more than just a power utility. This film is co-hosted by the Council of Canadians, Fredericton Chapter, and some members will be around for the discussion following the film. Films are free to the public. Donations are welcome to help with network membership fees. (Washrooms are not accessible, sorry!). More info: http://www.cinemapolitica.org/film/project-power.
