Canadian activists are heading to Europe later this month to try and un-do some of natural resource minister Joe Oliver’s lobbying work there.
Sun Media reports that the Council of Canadians is teaming up with aboriginal groups to lobby in favour of the E.U.’s fuel quality directive.
That directive would label oil sands crude as having a higher carbon footprint than conventional oil.
The Council claims oil sands crude is the “dirtiest oil on the planet”, and says it wants the entire industry to shut down.
