Oil and Water Don't Mix
BC Coast

BC-based filmmaker Richard Boyce’s Coastal Tar Sands explores the areas Enbridge's supertankers will navigate, loaded with oil from the Northern Gateway pipeline.

Filmmaker, activist and coastal BC native Richard Boyce has spent the past year looking at Canada’s West Coast through the lens of Enbridge’s highly controversial Northern Gateway pipeline proposal. He takes viewers on a journey along the Inner Passage, a shipping route for oceangoing vessels where a landmark proposal could see oil tankers move highly toxic diluted bitumen from Kitimat, BC – the pipeline’s terminus – to foreign markets overseas.

Boyce’s six-part video series, Coastal Tar Sands, is as scenic as it is informative. His plan is to release a feature-length documentary that will act as a retort to the proposal’s approval earlier this week.

Boyce’s knowledge of and passion for the wellbeing of BC’s environmentally sensitive central coast is obvious, and Coastal Tar Sands offers some of the most comprehensive first-hand reporting available on the subject of Northern Gateway.
