Canada, the largest foreign supplier of oil to the US, sends 1.2 million barrels south each day. Crude from Canada's tar sands, "the world's dirtiest oil," accounts for half that supply. During his first foreign visit to Canada, US President Barack Obama called climate change and the need to develop clean energy resources "the most pressing challenge of our time." He did not mention the tar sands.

The Dominion is a monthly paper published by an incipient network of independent journalists in Canada. It aims to provide accurate, critical coverage that is accountable to its readers and the subjects it tackles. Taking its name from Canada's official status as both a colony and a colonial force, the Dominion examines politics, culture and daily life with a view to understanding the exercise of power.
