While the struggle continues to stop the Keystone XL pipeline from being built and pumping thousands of tons of dirty, carbon intensive tar sands oil into the US from Canada, a tragic reality is unfolding at the source.
According to an investigtion by DeSmogBlog (full disclosure: I used to run it) a sordid tale is unraveling in Northern Alberta where a plan is being considered to poison and kill 6,000 wolves over the next five years to make way for further development of the Canadian tar sands.
