Dirty Oil Diplomacy: The Canadian Government's Global Push to Sell the Tar Sands
MARCH 8, 2011: Our new report, "Dirty Oil Diplomacy: The Canadian Government’s Global Push to Sell the Tar Sands," outlines the changing domestic and international policies of the Canadian government as they work to expand the tar sands – Canada’s fastest growing source of greenhouse gas pollution. This report is based on hundreds of pages of documents obtained through Canadian freedom of information laws. It paints a clear picture for the first time of the tar sands advocacy strategy, a collaborative effort of the Governments’ of Canada and Alberta along with industry to ensure that no doors are closed to Canada’s highly polluting tar sands.
