Canadian writers get Airsick

On Saturday, the Toronto Star published a number of eco-themed essays by such CanLit luminaries as David Adams Richards, Margaret Atwood, Jane Urquhart, Austin Clarke, Robert Bateman, Wayne Grady, John Wilson, and Stephen Marche.

(True to fashion, Marche complains about all the attention given to boring old-growth forests instead of hip, young trees that grow in Brooklyn. Just kidding.)

The essays were inspired by a short film by Star photographer Lucas Oleniuk entitled Airsick.

The film, as well as all of the essays, can be seen here.
