Sherri Chaba and Lyndal Osborne

H2Oil represents the odd-shaped tailings ponds that create permanent storage for the toxic by-products of oil sand excavation.  Aboriginal people in Northern Alberta can no longer hunt and gather foods from their land where oil is being extracted from the tar sands close to the Athabasca River. In other areas family farms have disappeared. Resource development has trumped land stewardship.
