This short video was produced by Mount Royal University students. Janet was asked to be a part of a series about energy sponsored by Rational Middle. The best videos were to be included in a larger film and presented at international conferences. This film won first place.
”When I researched the sponsorship of this project I realized this was Shell ‘s efforts to shift the conversation about their fracking operations into something more positive for their bottom line. As dismaying as this was, I was assured that my views would not be censored from the final cut. I saw this as an opportunity to open my own discussion about how Big Oil could become part of the solution instead of being the problem for which no economical answers are forthcoming. I doubt this video will be promoted anywhere other than by myself, but I am still happy I got to speak my truth to power. “
