Neil Young and honour the treaties

Neil Young:
Canada’s Conservative government exploit Alberta tar sands

from the Guardian: 14 January 2014

Neil Young has entered into a war of words with Canada’s Conservative government, accusing officials of “killing” First Nations through their exploitation of the Alberta tar sands. The Toronto-born singer has exchanged verbal volleys with the office of prime minister Stephen Harper, who replied that “even … rock stars” rely on oil.

Young made his initial comments during a press conference on Sunday afternoon, ahead of four gigs benefiting the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation’s legal fund. “People don’t realize what [the tar sands] looks like,” he told reporters. “It’s worse than anything you can imagine … It’s the greediest, most destructive and disrespectful demonstration of something run amok that you can ever see.”
