Film tip 'To The Last Drop'

This is an excellent documentary about the devastating environmental and health impacts of tar sand developments in Canada.

The people of the small town Fort Chipewyan in Alberta struggle with very unusually high cancer rates. The tar sand exploitation areas are incredibly vast - already larger than Greece - many more future developments are planned. But the river and air is being polluted to a large extend causing significant health risks to nature, animals and humans alike.

Despite the fact that the First Nation people of the Cree have native land rights in the region they face the powerful and rich oil industry as their opponent who is determined to deny health risks claims and expand their production.

The Tar Sands Solutions Network is one of many websites where you can learn more about tar sand projects and get involved to take action.
