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

Hey folks! As Alberta quickly gains an international reputation as a climate criminal, the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers is holding an Oil and Gas Investment Symposium in Calgary from June 16-18. Please join us on June 16, 2008, at 11am in front of the Hyatt Calgary.

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
