FIGHT LIKE SOLDIERS, DIE LIKE CHILDREN

Director: Patrick Reed     Canada, 2012, 83 minutes; PG

Fresh from this year’s Hot Docs festival in Toronto and DOXA in Vancouver comes an absorbing new documentary from the team behind Shake Hands With the Devil: The Journey of Roméo Dallaire.–The Cinematheque   General Romeo Dallaire is 66 and retired, but he still commands respect. Reed’s doc finds him back in Africa, where he witnessed but could not stop the 1994 Rwandan genocide. His latest mission is to fight against the recruitment of child soldiers. He knows someone else will have to carry this flame eventually, but it’s not going out on his watch.–National Post     The face of the cause couldn’t be more eloquent: Romeo Dallaire, his soul still shattered by his Rwandan past but his mind alert to the prospect of a more humane future.–The Globe and Mail

Conference Cutting Edge Freshwater Management and Emerging Issues: Southern Vancouver Island 2013-06-17 All Day
Description

In preparation for participants to begin discussing current pressing issues around freshwater ecosystems, and as a precursor to the Aquatic Ecosystem Health and Management Society (AEHMS) conference from June 18-20th, 2013, the University of Victoria is organizing a pre-conference field trip and speakers series for June 17th, 2013.
 
The event will involve a combination of presentations from leading researchers focused on the complex challenges currently faced in managing freshwater ecosystem health with a small group field trip throughout the CRD on Vancouver Island.
 
Following different aspects of the urban water cycle, the field trip will engage the topic of healthy freshwater ecosystems by exploring the Bowker Creek initiative and its efforts to restore a highly developed urban watershed. The trip will continue on to the CRD's highly protected drinking water source to better understand what a cutting-edge source protection program looks like in practice, before concluding with a stop at Fisherman’s Wharf in Victoria, where the very notion of “stormwater management” is being transformed towards a more holistic rainwater approach. At each of these stops on the tour, we will explore aspects of freshwater governance and new and changing planning and institutional approaches to managing people, communities and industries within a watershed. 
 
The intention is to offer ideas and practical examples for agencies and scientists interested in new ways of operating to build towards healthy freshwater ecosystems.
 
The field trip will begin at 10:00 am following the morning presentation by Tom Pedersen of the Pacific Institution for Climate Solutions. 
 
Following the return of the group from the field trip at 3:00 pm, there will be a series of presentations in the David Strong Building, beginning with David Rapport, EcoHealth Consulting, on the general problem of, and international experience in, developing indicators of ecosystem health. It will then be followed immediately by an open roundtable to address particular local examples of local action with respect to Salt Spring Island's Saint Mary Lake. David Rapport will be joined by Linda Sheehan of the Earth Law Centre, California, and Rick Nordin of the Univesity of Victoria, during the open roundtable.
