InsideClimate News' David Sassoon appeared on CBC's 'As It Happens' Tuesday to discuss his recent report detailing Charles and David Kochs' many decades of involvement in the Canadian tar sands industry.

Sassoon discussed the Koch brother's interests in the Alberta oil sands patch since 1959—their lease holdings in the province, their terminal in Hardisty, Alberta, their oil sands refinery in Minnesota and their latest project to extract oil from holdings in Cold Lake. He also discussed the brothers' influence in American and Canadian politics and their role in helping to undermine public confidence in climate change science and to block cabon regulations.
