Video: Andrew Weaver, Why Run?

This is some early sample footage for Running On Climate which I submitted to Canadian commissioning editors. The clip introduces one of the main subjects of the documentary, University of Victoria climate scientist Andrew Weaver as he makes the transition from academic to politician.

The provincial election is in British Columbia on 14th May. Dr Weaver is running as a candidate for the BC Green Party in the Oak Bay-Gordon Head riding in Victoria. Although Elizabeth May (featured in the video) won a federal seat for the Green Party of Canada in 2011, the BC Greens have never won a seat at provincial level.
