We need your help to stop CNRL. For nearly a year, and potentially longer, there have been four unstoppable underground oil leaks at tar sands operation near Cold Lake, Alberta. Now CNRL is quietly applying to the Alberta Energy Regulator for permission to start highly pressurizing the ground for more tar sands again even though the spills haven’t even stopped – they are still spilling!

When the Globe and Mail and the NFB launched their interactive game / documentary "Fort McMoney" in late 2013, nearly 200,000 people played.

The game was so popular they are starting it again in January 2014.
The federal government will soon make a decision on approving the Enbridge Northern Gateway tar sands pipelines and tankers project.

We are asking you to stand with us to Hold the Wall.
Neil Young started a much needed national Canadian conversation in January about the true impacts unchecked oil sands development are having on Canada's First Nations people.

You can still pledge to stand with Neil and the ACFN or contribute to their crowdfunding campaign.

Harper has been Canada’s worst prime minister from an environmental perspective, says David Boyd, lawyer and author of The Right to a Healthy Environment.

Tell President Obama: If anyone should be recused from discussion of Keystone XL, it’s the ethically compromised ERM, not John Podesta. Don’t silence key White House advisors who tell the truth about tar sands and climate change.
