Popular Halifax filmmaker Lulu Keating, who moved to the Yukon in 2000, was badly injured in a car accident on August 30. According to reports, she was in transit to Dawson City to deliver some films for their festival, when the vehicle rolled, throwing her onto the road. Unfortunately she is expected to be immobilized in bed for several months until they know, for sure, the extent of the damage.
