Protesters block megaloads leaving Umatilla, Oregon on December 1, 2013.

Protesters block megaloads leaving Umatilla, Oregon on December 1, 2013.

On last week’s show we brought you to Idaho and Montana, where hundreds of trucks were routed to haul gigantic mining equipment to the Tar Sands oil fields of Alberta Canada, but an alliance of citizens and community groups was able to block the transport through environmentally sensitive land.

This week we continue the saga of the megaloads heading to the Tar Sands through the Pacific Northwest and Northern Rockies. We also follow two more tendrils of the Tar Sands project stretching from Alberta to the coast of British Columbia.

This is the second of a two part special, on the growing resistance to the tar sands, produced by Barbara Bernstein.

Listen the the first part here.
