Treaty No. 8, and First Nations,  the basis for a legal challenge to Shell Oil’s mining of tar sands.

No constitutional challenge based on Treaty 8 rights has ever been fully argued before a judge.  It’s a test case that, if successful, could set a precedent for stricter enforcement of treaty rights and change the way industrial development is regulated. More importantly, though, it would embolden indigenous groups all over  Canada, United States, to fight abuses by both industry and government.


Shell Canada is psychotic.


Sure, “There are First Nations who think the tar sands are great,” “People have jobs. People now can afford to take their kids to Edmonton to go to the dentist. These are luxuries for people. But we have to start weighing the costs.”


Those costs—hundreds of toxic tailings ponds, open pit mines, significant emissions and polluted rivers across a giant swathe of Alberta, and the United States—have not been properly addressed.

Please say it isn't so!.......first actual tar sands and oil shale strip-mining operation in the United States. Not far from Moab, Utah, the state has already leased land to a Canadian energy development company that recently changed its name to U.S. Oil Sands. The company plans to mine nearly 6,000 acres in an area of unspoiled wilderness that is also the watershed of the Colorado River, which provides water to more than 30 million people.

For every barrel of bitumen that comes out of the ground in Northern Alberta, Canada, another 1.5 barrels of toxic waste is created and dumped into tailings ponds that are carved out of the once pristine wilderness. That waste may now be leaking into the Athabasca river Delta, poisoning indigenous communities for hundreds of kilometers downstream and causing rare cancers once unheard of. The Alberta government and its industry-funded studies say every thing is okay with the water. Independent observers say otherwise.

Stewards of the earth

Renee, what are some ways I can help get my church involved in environmental activism?


Eric, in light of recent coffee cup nonsense, it’s a great time to share how people of faith — any faith — are focusing their energy on caring for the Earth. So, then, it [...]

The whole poop

Hi Renee,

I was wondering if you know of an environmentally friendly way to dispose dog waste? I cringe every time I pull out a plastic (albeit recycled) bag to clean the yard.


Hi Sarah,

You’re barking up the right tree with this [...]



We recently completed a home remodel which included new baseboards and door trim.  I have a lot of little pieces (translation: unusable for reuse) of stained & urethane-treated wood trim that I would like to recycle.  Anyplace in the Indianapolis area or Bloomington IN area that takes this type of [...]
