Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "Wayne Dumont is a high-flying environmental consultant from Vancouver BC who’s fallen on hard times. His company needs someone sufficiently experienced and flexible with facts and data to fill in on a tricky gold mine assignment on the north coast. Wayne is the best they’ve got with the required skill set and track record, and he needs cash to cover his stock market losses. He takes the job thinking it will be short term, not realizing the high price he would pay. Wayne is a PhD marine biologist who loves the ocean and west coast lifestyle. While in Prince Rupert going through the motions of environmental monitoring, Wayne fulfills a lifelong dream. He buys a boat, a throwback to the heydays on the north coast when Prince Rupert harbour was jammed with commercial fish boats of all sizes. But working for the mining company puts Wayne squarely in conflict with a group of back to the land relics and local Indigenous people. His ethical problems are further compounded by an unstable love life back in Vancouver and the unscrupulous consulting company owner he works for, who will stop at nothing to keep healthy cash flow coming in. Ultimately, he faces the decision to either do the right thing, or continue ignoring the injustices staring him right in the face. At the risk of losing everything, including his own life, Wayne chooses to take matters into his own hands."--
