Activists from groups including LMN member UK Tar sands Network challenged Shell on its projects in the Alberta Tar Sands.
On the destruction of rights, human health and the environment, we heard from Ben Powless of the Indigenous Environmental Network and Eriel Deranger of the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation – the latter are suing Shell for breach of commitments in these areas. Sue Dhaliwal of the UK Tar Sands Network questioned the board about Shell’s lobbying of the European Commission over the Fuel Quality Directive, whilst Ron Plain a member of the Aamjiwnaag First Nation revealed the legacy of toxic pollution at the company’s Sarnia refinery, where it is planned that bitumen from the tar sands will be processed.
