William Thomas

William Thomas is an award-winning Canadian author, reporter, photographer and filmmaker. A former Vancouver Sun "photog" - his feature writing and accompanying photographs subsequently appeared in more than 50 publications in eight countries, including translations into French, Dutch and Japanese.

His 30-minute video documentary Eco War won the 1991 US Environmental Film Festival award for "Best Documentary Short". Excerpts from this "front-lines" chronicle of a three-man environmental emergency response team in Kuwait aired in an eight-part CBC Gulf War mini-series, and have been shown on CNN and NBC television, as well as Noam Chomsky's feature film, The Corporation.

During and immediately after the Gulf War, he served five months in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait as a member of a three-man environmental emergency response team.

Winner of four Canadian feature-writing awards, he is the author of Days Of Deception: Ground Zero and Beyond; All Fall Down: The Politics of Terror and Mass Persuasion, Scorched Earth, Bringing The War Home, Alt Health, Stand Down, Dialing Our Cells: Cell Phone Health Hazards and the recently updated Chemtrails Confirmed.

A former pilot, ocean sailor and frequent radio talk-show guest, William Thomas currently lives and works on Hornby Island.
