Coastal Tar Sands – Journey To Deleted Islands

What happens when a major corporation wants to build an oil pipeline over land to the west coast where it will be loaded on to supertankers that have to navigate some very narrow inlets to pick up their loads? They put  out publicity pictures and graphic videos that magically remove the obstacles and make the west coast of British Columbia look extremely accessible.  It’s not. Richard Boyce’s film, Coastal Tar Sands – Journey To Deleted Islands, demonstrates how a supertanker carrying tar sands oil from Alberta will inevitably lead to a major oil spill in waters near some of the most beautiful unspoilt land on the planet.
