You may have heard that I was flown to Toronto by MTV's "The Buried Life", to publicly protest Brookfield Asset Management's plans to clearcut on Cortes. 400 young women, painted blue like Avatars from the recent blockbuster movie, joined us to let the corporation know that we are committed to finding an alternative for these forests!
It was amazing.

All the media coverage has been great, and has also included CBC TV, ETalk, Globe and Mail, Virgin Radio, MTV Canada, Much Music, Much More Music, Victoria's A Channel, and of course MTV US, as the feature story airing in November on "The Buried Life".
I was also particularly excited to see this story showing up FIVE times in the Brookfield Asset Management info page on altenergystocks.com: http://www.altenergystocks.com/comm/content/brookfield-asset-management/
I am taking a few more actions while I'm here, and doing a few more interviews, so stay tuned for more!
