See this tongue in cheek video of Ben West, the Wilderness Committee's Healthy Communities campaigner as he goes under-cover to interview Vancouver bookie "Jimmy Fingers" to prepare for West's upcoming debate with Ezra Levant. 

Levant claims that Canada's Tar Sands oil is "ethical" because our country has a clean record on human rights abuses - unlike some other oil producing countries.

West argues that there is no such thing as ethical oil in this era of runaway human-caused climate change and that Canada is guilty of its own human rights abuses with Tar Sands toxic pollution impacting downstream First Nations communities.
