RESCHEDULED: Let’s Talk Tidal Power: What’s Happening in the Bay of Fundy?

Where: Halifax Central Library, 5440 Spring Garden Rd, Halifax

See the Facebook event HERE.

As the world moves to replace fossil fuels with clean renewable energy, Nova Scotia finds itself with some of the world’s greatest tidal power resources in the iconic Bay of Fundy. After decades of research and pilot projects, however, some people are growing concerned that the present course of development will have negative consequences for the natural systems of the Bay and the livelihoods and cultures that are tied to it. So, what’s happening in the Bay of Fundy?

The Nova Scotia Environmental Network and the Halifax Central Library are proud to present a panel discussion to help the public understand who is who in the tidal energy sector, the history of development, where things stand today, what is at stake, and how the future could unfold.

Moderated by Dr. Boris Worm of Dalhousie University, the panel consists of:

  • Dr. Graham Daborn - Acadia University 

  • Paul McEachern - Marine Renewables Canada 

  • Mike Wambolt - DFO 

  • Darren Porter - fisheries representative

  • Colin Sproul - Bay of Fundy Inshore Fishermen's Association 

  • Sara Swinamer - Bay of Fundy Water Protectors 

There will be a question and answer period open to the audience.
