22 homes had to be evacuated.

This video, released by 350.org and the Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), and based on research by Oil Change International, reminds us, again, how TransCanada’s proposed Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will hurt the environment and the future. And why we must continue to fight against the approval of the pipeline.

The video features these four experts: Dr. John Abraham, an associate professor at the University of St. Thomas;  Dr. Danny Harvey, a professor at the University of Toronto; Nathan Lemphers, a senior policy analyst with the Pembina Institute and Lorne Stockman, Research Director for Oil Change International.
