Neil Young On Tar Sand Oil

Watch the very short film and see what the Harper Government of Canada is doing to the local Indians all in the name of tar sand oil.

It's criminal and they want to bring that crud through our Midwest. 

Take a look at the future.

Canadian rock icon, Neil Young weighs in on the tar sands debate.

Recently the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation hosted Neil Young and Daryl Hannah's visit of the Fort McMurray area. 

Watch the video and hear what he had to say about the proposed Keystone XL pipeline -- "People are sick, people are dying of cancer, their food supply is threatened, all the animals up there are dying," he said. "It looks like Hiroshima. This is truly a disaster."

Neil Young, one of Canada’s best-known singer-songwriters since the 1960s, told an event in Washington yesterday that he recently traveled to Alberta, where “much of the oil comes from, much of the oil that we’re using here, which they call ethical oil because it’s not from Saudi Arabia or some country that may be at war with us.”
He was at a National Farmers Union event on Capitol Hill meant to support alternative fuels, such as ethanol, which he did at length, slamming Big Oil and talking about his own LincVolt, an old Continental that runs on ethanol and electricity.
Here’s what he said about the oil sands:
“The fact is, Fort McMurray looks like Hiroshima. Fort McMurray is a wasteland. The Indians up there and the native peoples are dying. The fuels all over – the fumes everywhere – you can smell it when you get to town. The closest place to Fort McMurray that is doing the tar sands work is 25 or 30 miles out of town and you can taste it when you get to Fort McMurray. People are sick. People are dying of cancer because of this. All the First Nations people up there are threatened by this.”
