A Parliamentary Standing Committee on Environment and Sustainable Development shredded its in-depth report on Tar Sands water pollution. Andrew Nikiforuk is the only journalist to have read all of the original testimonies submitted to that committee, and this is an in-depth interview with him.

This interview was first broadcast on Worm's-Eye View: Grassroots News, on CJSF 90.1 FM. Worm's-Eye View brings alternative, community-oriented social justice programming to the Lower Mainland of BC. We are an open-volunteer space for student and community journalists to learn and grow.
