Hugh tells us all about the Alberta tar sands, which some say are the second biggest oil reserve in the world after the Saudi oil fields.  We started on the crenel­lated* fjords of the British Columbia coast, followed the proposed Enbridge oil pipeline through the coastal moun­tains and ended up in the tar sands.  But not to fear, we didn’t get bogged down (ha HA) in gloom — Hugh told us how local citizens, advocacy groups, and yes, even the US gov­ern­ment are all helping to block Enbridge’s progress.

*Crenellated (adj) 1. having bat­tle­ments, 2. indented; notched
