What do you know about the Alberta tar sands? Have you heard the term “dirty oil”?

Garth Lenz is a photographer who came recently to Prince Rupert for the No Tankers, No Pipeline rally hosted by the Gitga’at. This is a video version of his outstanding presentation. It’s filled with some lovely images and some shocking ones as well. He puts the tar sands production into context. The northern gateway pipeline that we are currently fighting is the point of very long, rusty and dangerous sword. It’s one of the potential outlets for the Alberta tar sands, which is the most destructive, damaging, polluting and generally vile industrial projects on the planet.

This is a powerful video. Please please please get informed!
