Neil Young's support of the Athabaskan Chipewyan's fundraising efforts towards their tarsand court case gained a truckload of press attention last week. Every national and daily paper reaped the benefits of a hot topic and it ignited a national conversation about energy resources in Canada. I’m grateful for that.
Not just to Neil though. The press seemed to miss that the leaders of the debate are the Athabaskan Chipewyan people and countless other First Nations that are launching court cases to protect our land and drinking water for ALL of us.
Neil was just lending a helping hand.

The National Energy Board (NEB) has approved seven LNG export applications for BC, totalling 14.6 billion cubic feet per day (bcf/d).
- Meeting these approved exports would require increasing BC’s gas production to nearly 50 per cent more than all of Canada currently produces - within less than a decade.
- These exports would require more and more gas wells and more and more fracking, up to 50,000 wells over the next 27 years, using up to 10 million gallons of water per well for the fracking.
- The NEB's job is to protect Canada's energy security, but in its reference case, the NEB projects that Canada will have no more than 4.5 bcf/d of export capacity by 2035 – yet it has approved LNG exports of 14.6 bcf/d starting in 2020.
