The Keystone XL tar sands Pipeline has been an enormous environmental, public health & civil rights battle. In 2010 the pipeline leaked more than a dozen times and North Dakota suffered a 21,000 gallon geyer. In Kalamazoo, MI Enbridge paid a billion in clean-up fees. Environmentalist have been waging a campaign for decades. President Trump recinded Pres. Obama permit restriction. It was a big campaign issue and Pres. Biden promised to stop it on his first day and fortunately, he did. Mr. Sands was speaking for BIG OIL tonight.

Agree this was top notch. Good news that those who missed will be able to view on our 'In Case You Missed' tab on our websites. These On-Demand viewings typically exceed 30 per program, and in one case - Guatemala - the viewings were over 120.

This presentation and limited Q&A was wide-ranging, comprehensive and balanced. Mr. Sands was well prepared and shared US/Canadian issues, both known and unknown, that have not been pursued and mitigated by the administrations of both governments, past and present. We do not believe that the era of close relations are over, but surely in need of much better attention. Well done!

One of the best for clarity and information. Particularly liked his grasp of the facts and observations about our government's disorganization and both governments making critical decisions purely for political purposes, regardless of the country's needs. And kudos to board member Christopher Hebb for making this program happen..

I thought Christopher was very insightful and articulate and I thoroughly enjoyed his presentation.

Excellent presentation that helped us understand issues from a Canadian point of view. There are some of the issues he discussed that have an "American point of view" that would have been good to hear but for its intended purpose, Chris did a great job. Would love to hear him again.
