Michael Harris, "If existing legislation can turn an artist into a threat, imagine what could happen under C-51. Neil Young will be pretty much done."

In Victoria? Join me for the exhibition opening of “The Real Poop on Social Change” at The Dock. Chat about social change art over a glass of wine or beer on Thursday, October 9, 2014 from 4:30pm to 7:00pm.
It's a great line-up! I will be joined by Charlotte Kingston, BC Civil Liberties Association, Carol Linnitt, DeSmog Canada, and Dr. Thomas F. Pedersen, The Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions in saying a few words about the power of art to accelerate positive change — and why we need to vigorously protect our Charter right to free expression.
