Niagara Falls Action Photos
Niagara Falls— Just one day before Prime Minister Harper’s first official visit to the U.S. to meet with President Obama, three concerned citizens released a vivid 70-foot banner above the Niagara Falls; the banner is intended to call attention to Harper’s efforts to lock up the U.S. market for tar sands oil, and the threat tar sands holds for the climate. Against the dramatic Niagara Falls background, the most well recognized border between the U.S. and Canada, the banner is intended to send the message that Canadian tar sands oil threatens North America’s clean energy future. The banner reads: clean energy future with an arrow pointing in one direction, and tar sands oil with an arrow pointing in the other.
