Tar Sands and Water Don’t Mix

The expansion of the Tar Sands would lead to increased destruction and poisoning of the lands, waters and air of the Indigenous Peoples directly on the frontlines and downstream of the Tar Sands. In addition, Tar Sands expansion has given rise to many new pipeline / train / tanker projects which threaten Indigenous Peoples’ rivers, lakes, coasts and communities with toxic oil spills that can’t be cleaned up and that will destroy entire ecosystems.
