Tonight on Doc Zone: Tar Sands: The Selling of Alberta

TONIGHT on CBC’s Doc Zone! Thursday March 13 at 9pm on CBC-TV & Saturday March 15 at 10pm ET/PT  on CBC Newsworld

Tar Sands: The Selling of Alberta
captures the intersecting storylines of a remarkable cast of characters
eager to cash in on the oil boom in Fort McMurray, Alberta.  Washington
lobbyists, Newfie pipefitters, Chinese investors and Norwegian
industrialists descend on tar-soaked “Fort McMoney”, a modern-day
Eldorado, where rents are sky rocketing and cocaine abuse is four times
the provincial average. Up for grabs – a stake in a $100 billion energy
bonanza and Canada’s economic sovereignty.
