For the past three months Suncor has been transporting diluted bitumen from the tar sands in northern Alberta to a storage facility at Sorel-Tracy, which is located at the confluence of the Richelieu River and the St. Lawrence River just east of Montreal.
Their plan is to continue to transport oil by rail to this port and to fill 20 to 30 tankers a year that would travel on the St. Lawrence River to export markets.

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.
