Oiling Haida Gwaii

Published: July 25, 2011, Author: JayTaber

August National Geographic looks at the Great Bear Rainforest and Canada’s bid to become a global player in the petroleum market. With Alberta’s oil sands second only to the oil fields in Saudi Arabia, the proposed supertanker expressway known as Northern Gateway — planned to navigate the treacherous archipelago to Kitimat, British Columbia — is shaping up to become the largest environmental battle in Canadian history. For the indigenous Gitga’at of Hartley Bay, as well as First Nations across Canada, it is a battle worth fighting.
