The April 2010 issue of the New Internationalist includes an article about the Alberta tar sands, Canada’s Mordor, by Maude Barlow, Andrea Harden-Donahue and Meera Karunananthan.
In ‘Escape from Mordor’, they write, “The Council of Canadians is among many organizations calling for a tar sands-free future and stronger policies that would prevent profit interests from trumping social and environmental policies.”
Also featured is an article about Dr. John O’Connor, who is now a member of the Council of Canadians Board of Directors.
This month’s issue of the magazine, which has a paid circulation of more than 75,000 readers, has a 17-page focus on the tar sands.
