Rise Up! chats with Eli Pivnick and Bruce Sinclair about the Bearing Witness to the Oil Sands Project in advance of the trip which took place Aug. 8-19.
Bearing Witness to the Oil Sands Project is a multimedia tour by canoe which allowed participants to explore the conditions of the Athabasca River and Lake Athabasca between Fort McMurray and Fort Chipewyan. Eli Pivnick is the project organizer as well as an entomologist and wilderness guide and Bruce Sinclair, a participant during the trip in 2013 shares his experience from an Aboriginal perspective.
