This is a sponsorship of the Planet In Focus Film Festival screens Sarah Harmer's film 'Escarpment Blues,' which is followed by a panel discussion. Escarpment Blues, directed by Andy Keen, chronicles the activist singer’s fight to stop the destruction of the Niagara Escarpment and preserve Ontario’s Greenbelt. Harmer’s I Love the Escarpment Tour was captured on film last summer as she and her band played in outdoor theaters and community halls along the escarpment’s Bruce Trail. Proceeds of the tour go to Protecting Escarpment Rural Land (PERL), a local group Sarah co-founded to oppose a new quarry proposal near her home in North Burlington. The mine threatens to destroy the water table, habitat and the unique escarpment lands, designated as a World Biosphere Reserve by the United Nations. Sarah Harmer is this year’s recipient of The “Friend of the Greenbelt Award.”
