Canada's leading anti-oil champions Elizabeth May, Tzeporah Berman travel to UN conference in Madrid to protest our oil industry


I'm here in Madrid covering the UN climate change conference.

And the Canadian anti oil activists are busy making their mark in Spain by fighting against indigenous jobs as part of their protest to stop Teck Resources Fort MacMurray Frontier oilsands mine.

Former Alberta Government employee and founder of Stand.Earth, along with Canadian Green Party leader Elizabeth May joined dozens organized by Indigenous Climate Action Canada to fight the nearly 21 billion dollar construction and energy project.

If you got all your news from the mainstream media, you wouldn't know that the 14 Alberta indigenous communities directly affected by the project have signed agreements with Teck that provide economic opportunity while protecting indigenous rights.

Berman and May flew all the way to Madrid to protest the futures of indigenous people back home.
