Canada targets environmentalists

 IPS 24 March 2019

Canada’s government is targeting environmentalists in an attempt to limit research showing that extracting oil from the tar sands in Alberta is having a devastating effect on climate change. Government scientists recently produced new research confirming that toxic chemicals from Alberta’s oil sands were leaching into local rivers and groundwater. But only weeks later it was announced the same department would face 1000 job cuts. Experts on the environment now fear there will be much less government focus on the problem. (1378 Words) - By Paul Weinberg
