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.
