The aggressive push to sell oil sands products is undermining Canada’s reputation, according to a new report released Thursday by Climate Action Network Canada. The 32-page document was produced in cooperation with other environmental groups including Greenpeace and Sierra Club, and addresses both domestic and international advocacy efforts from government and industry. According to the groups involved, the new report is intended to provide a comprehensive look at coordinated campaigns directed primarily at oil sands critics. “We are hoping to get the attention of the Canadian government, and have them take some moral responsibility for the future of the planet,” said Reverend Canon Sally Bingham, founder of the Interfaith Power & Light campaign.
