Went to the book launch of Arno Kopecky’s new travel novel ‘Oil Man & the Sea’ with sailing companion Ilja Herb’s photography from their trip to the Great Bear Rainforest. This is a wonderful tale of their adventures as novice sailors in the wild and untamed coast that is under threat from Enbridge’s proposed pipeline. Full of tales, wildlife, stories of native and other folks up north, and the politics & science of conservation.
