RAVEN's biggest case to date just launched a powerful new legal strategy to advance the trial that takes on the tar sands. Not one project, not one mine: but all of them, at once. Donate: thetarsandstrial.ca

"There is no business case for an expansion of Alberta’s oilsands on the scale needed to justify the Keystone XL and Trans Mountain export pipelines because of one bare fact: there are zero foreign buyers who today will commit to decades-long purchase contracts for unrefined bitumen at a fixed price near US$80 per barrel. Instead, global traders will literally buy future oil by the boatload, then book terminal time at any deepwater ocean port like the LOOP, anywhere in the world, to embark with two million barrels in a single cargo.

Vancouver will never be one of those ports. No VLCC will ever arrive to offload foreign oil, then upload Alberta bitumen for a backhaul trip to foreign refineries. So the pending Trans Mountain pipeline plan to triple oilsands exports, and increase oil tanker traffic under the Lions Gate Bridge up to seven-fold, is doomed. So is the plan to expand oilsands output by 40 per cent. No amount of cheerleading, or demonizing, or pixie dust will change the raw laws of global oil economics." #KinderMorgan #oilindustry #cdnpoli #Canada #noKM

We believe Indigenous Peoples hold the balance of power when it comes to land, water and air protection... and we work to support their actions to achieve tangible, measurable change on the ground through the courts. And then there are our federal and provincial governments... who don't adhere to many measurements for protecting Mother Earth from climate change according to their own audit.

Friends! I'm getting so stoked for the release show of Us in support of RAVEN Trust and the collection of First Nations leading the movement to protect the Salish Sea from the Kinder Morgan pipeline expansion. In anticipation of the show, I've released a new single and you can download it at
