How much longer until an organization comes along that represents the interests of workers and the environment?
Today we are launching the new Iron & Earth, a Canadian initiative created for and by oilsands workers looking to promote the renewable sector.
Yeah, we're an environmental organization. But you won't hear us trying to shame anybody for caring about their jobs or providing for their families.
Tradespeople across this country have a lot to be proud of, including those working in the oilsands.
Together we can encourage more sustainable carbon-based extraction and build the renewable energy infrastructure we need to both meet the demands of consumers and diversify our energy economy so it isn't so reliant on the boom and bust associated to a single resource.
