Canada's Tar Sands - Clean them up or shut them down

Sunday, May 24, 2009

The tar sands threaten an area of boreal forest the size of Florida, and are causing acid rain affecting lakes and rivers in Saskatchewan. In Ontario, human and animal health are harmed due to the refining of dirty tar sands oil there.

The tar sands have negative impacts on the human health of surrounding communities, the wild species that call northern Alberta home, and the desires of Canadians everywhere to take real action to fight climate change.

Let’s take real action to fight pollution and the climate crisis.
