“Tar Sands Solutions Network is a growing international network of organizations including First Nations, environmental groups, landowners, farmers, scientists, community leaders, academics, and grassroots groups located throughout North America and Europe.”
The focus of this expanding alliance is stopping the expansion of the Canadian tar sands and its infrastructure of pipelines and tankers, growth that is out of control and happening without consistent care, oversight, or debate. They represent a range of voices that are unanimously calling for a safe, clean energy economy that protects human and environmental rights.
The power the network brings to its members is: a space to aggregate and amplify
diverse tar sands and pipeline campaigns; the ability to highlight key
activities and moments and share successes; access to insights and data for the
diverse array of groups, big and small that work on the campaigns; and an
accessible resource of key reports, images, maps, fact sheets in one central
The campaigns of the TSSN are ongoing and consist of but are not limited to:
Enbridge Northern Gateway, Kinder Morgan, Energy East, Alberta Clipper and Line 9.
