Today after analyzing yet another movie I bundled up warmly--with the wind it felt much colder than minus seven--and took the bus to hear a public panel about the Alberta tar sands where Jane Fonda would be speaking. Last year I wrote her a letter and sent it to the Women's Media Center (she is on the Board). I was hoping I would get a chance to say hi because Nine to Five is still one of my favourite movies. Unfortunately, the question period only left her one minute afterwards for meeting and greeting before being whisked away to the airport. She is inspirational, and I would have loved to tell her that. It was still worth an entire afternoon, just to hear Eriel Deranger of the Athabascan Chipewyan First Nation, as well as Grand Chief Stewart Philip and Grand Chief Derek Nepinak and be surrounded by other people who care deeply about the environment.
