The visit of this Oscar winning director, is sure attract a huge amount of attention to the place, since it’s not everyday that a Hollywood film-maker of Cameron’s stature visits a place like this.

He also has a strong affinity towards several environmental causes from around the world. He and Sigourney Weaver (Avatar-star) are presently, all across the famous Amazon Watch website since they went there in actual physical reality so as to speak on behalf of the indigenous people who live there. These people are constantly under threats by the manufacture of the Belo Monte Dam complex.
The forests of Alberta aren’t as colorful as their Amazon counterpart; however the reason James was drawn to the place was because he said that the local and the aboriginal communities all downstream from the oilsands.
