Saving the Southlands

A new 13 min documentary - produced by filmmaker Damien Gillis in partnership with a number of Tsawwassen groups and citizens - is now available online. "Saving the Southlands" tells the story of the 30-year battle to protect a 500-acre parcel of prime farmland in Tsawwassen from housing development - set against the backdrop of an emerging food security crisis in BC.
