Meet James Raffan. Speaker, Author. Adventurer.

Ah, For Just One Time: Climate change and the politics of the Northwest Passage

Northwest PassageFollowing his first trip north as a labourer for ESSO in the summer of 1977, building metal buildings in Inuvik, James has spent part of every year somewhere in the Arctic.  His recent circumnavigation of the world at the Arctic Circle has added to that experience and given him a unique perspective on climate change and the politics of the Northwest Passage.  With the first line of Stan Roger’s iconic Canadian anthem as his starting place, and with his unique blend of stories and images, James looks head on a changing Arctic and what this might mean for people who might never get there.
