It's time to ask the question: Who benefits from the
Because it's notyou or I.
In a report
released today, ForestEthics reveals that 71% of all Tar Sands production is
owned by non-Canadian shareholders. Oil companies such as Suncor, Canadian
Oil Sands and Husky only look Canadianon the outside. On
the inside, Harper is peddling our oil to the highest foreign bidder.
Environment be damned.
The Harper Government claims it’s promoting
the Tar Sands and pipeline projects on our behalf, but our research shows
that’s just not true. Oil profits are benefitting foreign investors and
foreign oil companies, while Canadians are left with a toxic legacy and
huge clean up bills. That’s not okay.
It's time to set the record straight. I’m airing Harper’s dirty laundry in a
press conference right now and I think Harper and Big Oil will try and bury
this story. However, you can help spread the truth:
take 2 minutes to read
the report. Then join our online protest:

Last month, our Federal Government gutted long-standing environmental laws
designed to protect OUR land, air, and water.
They are threatening our
fisheries, fresh water and coastline with oil spills and destroying old
growth boreal forest and endangered caribou habitat to expand Tar Sands
I am a Canadian and a mother. I want my children to grow up
in a Canada that they can be proud of, a Canada that leads the world
towards a clean energy economy, and a Canada that governs in the
interest of its people, not on behalf of Big Oil.

all it takes. Read the report and stop the exploitation of our natural
