RBC Olympics Tar Sands

Rainforest Action Network added a voiceover to Royal Bank of Canada's new "Flame Trail" Olympics commercial. This narrative discusses RBC's lead financing of the dirtiest oil project on Earth- the Alberta tar sands. Since 2007, Royal Bank of Canada has backed more than $16.9 billion (USD) in loans to companies operating in the Alberta tar sands—more than any other bank. Expansion of the tar sands is trampling the rights of Indigenous peoples, destroying globally significant ecosystems and exponentially increasing Canada's carbon emissions. • Learn more at: http://www.ran.org/tarsands • Tell RBC to halt financing of the tar sands: http://ga3.org/campaign/RBC_Letter_Go... • See the original RBC ad: http://adsoftheworld.com/media/tv/rbc... • This transformative remix work constitutes a fair-use of any copyrighted material as provided for in Section 107 of the US copyright law.
