A large oil refinery along the Athabasca River in Alberta's oil sands. This letter writer questions giving government aid to oil sands companies.

Editor:

It’s interesting to read that the oil sands (a.k.a. tar sands) companies are looking forward to a steady stream of government aid to the tune of $15 billion to help them in the demand for cleaner energy.

All this is while they have been making excessive profits and while children in this country go to bed and to school hungry and people live in tents.
