Description
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Tar Sands: The Selling of Alberta captures the intersecting storylines of
a remarkable cast of characters eager to cash in on the oil boom in Fort
McMurray, Alberta. Washington lobbyists, Newfie pipefitters, Chinese investors
and Norwegian industrialists descend on tar-soaked "Fort McMoney", a modern-day
Eldorado, where rents are sky rocketing and cocaine abuse is four times the
provincial average. Up for grabs - a stake in a $100 billion energy bonanza
and Canada's economic sovereignty.

This hour-length documentary, commissioned by the CBC, tracks the growth of
the world's largest reserve of 'unconventional' oil. This Florida-sized
"environmental sacrifice zone" has become Canada's contribution to U.S. energy
security in the post-9/11 world. Yet, for many, the tar sands are a global
warming disaster.

As Fort McMurray bursts at the seams, children from Thunder Bay to Cape Breton
are made tar-sands orphans by their migrant-worker parents. Canada's
petrodollar breaks the back of the manufacturing economy in the East. Cancer
rates skyrocket downstream of Fort McMurray while Rocky Mountain glaciers melt
and disappear. And all the while, Alberta crude goes south to U.S. markets
while Eastern Canada pays ever more for insecure Middle East oil.
