Be a Part of the Creation of the Tar Sands House Parties!

Sierra Club of Canada — Prairie Chapter

Sierra Club Prairie has a great new way for you to spread the word about the Tar Sands and to your friends and family! Our "Tar Sands House Party" kits are all you need to host a social event with an environmental justice theme! Invite your friends over for a potluck or a wine and dessert evening, watch a video about the issue of your choice, look at images of Alberta's tar sands region or nuclear power, and read letters written by those directly affected by these developments. Then, engage in a discussion about what you can do to make your voice heard! Kits include "Common Q&A" on each topic as well as "Suggested Discussion Questions" to get you going, and much more!

Rally Against the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers — Investors in the Destructive and Toxic Tar Sands!

Environmental and Human Rights Abuses Ignored While Profits Soar

The event will bring together over 85 companies and 375 investors from Canada, the USA, and around the world - many of these folks being active and big funders in the Tar Sands, with others looking to expand into that market. This year, a bunch of different groups are looking to send them a clear message: Don't Invest in the Toxic Tar Sands!!! Read more about Tar Sands Rally
