Canadians unhappy with Harper Conservatives’ $1.4b tar sands subsidies (VIDEO)

A must-watch video! Climate change activists hit the streets of Hamilton, Ontario, and asked people to compliment the Harper Conservatives’ annual $1.4 billion oil subsidies to Canada’s oil industry. Almost all of the people asked said they weren’t happy with giving handouts to the wealthiest and most destructive industry on the planet. Then the activists ask them whether they would like to write a “thank you” letter to Stephen Harper.
