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
