Another Black Mark on Canada as U.S. Runs Anti-Alberta Ads

This is horrible. By putting the environment on the back burner, while subsidizing the oil industry, Stephen Harper has once again destroyed our image on the world stage.

San Francisco-based Corporate Ethics International launched a new ad campaign Wednesday that urges would-be visitors to "rethink" planning a trip to Alberta. "Alberta is spending millions to brand itself as an environmentally friendly destination for tourists, when in fact we think it's the most environmentally unfriendly place in North America because of the tarsands," said executive director Michael Marx.

Billboards are going up in Seattle, Portland, Denver and Minneapolis. The campaign will expand to the U.K. in two weeks.

I'm so proud.
