Suzuki Reveals Shifting Sands of Alberta Fight

an editorial by John Fefchak As I watched one of David Suzuki's TV programs,"The Nature of Things," I became very upset at what was taking place in northern Alberta with the Tar Sands and what was happening to the land, the animals, the fish, the environment and the people who make their home there. It seemed, surely this can't be taking place in Canada. This has got to be a spoof from a horror film. But it wasn't a spoof. This was and is reality.    It has motivated me to submit this letter, for I also believe we must change our ways and take much better care of our one and only planet that we live on.
