Summary: Featured speakers/guests:
Even with the price of crude oil low, there are still companies investing in and working the vast bitumen mines in Alberta, and building pipelines to refining and shipping points. The local devastation is massive and the effects on local and global environment worse. Activists from Canada and Texas speak. Heard in the program:
Osprey Orielle Lake, President of the Women's Earth and Climate Caucus; Crystal Lameman, a Beaver Lake Cree from Alberta working with Sierra Club and Indigenous Environmental Network Alberta; Melina Laboucan-Massimo, a Lubicon Cree environmentalist from Northern Alberta, working with Greenpeace and the Indigenous Environmental Network; Julia Trigg Crawford, Manager of her family's farm in northeast Texas, in court against TransCanada's condemnation of their land; Eleanor Fairchild, 78-year-old farmer from eastern Texas working to defend her land against the Keystone XL pipeline; Winona LaDuke, Anishinaabe indigenous rights activist and environmentalist, and Executive Director of Honor the Earth.
