A popular movement against tar sands oil production and pipeline transport
is on the rise and gathering steam in Canada.

Its biggest expression so far came on October 22 when 4000- 5000 people
rallied in front of the British Columbia legislature to send a forceful
message to the tar sands industry and its political representatives. “No
tar sands pipelines across BC! No oil tankers in coastal waters!” read the
lead banners.

dummy?” — Jarvis Cocker
