"Banned by Canada!"
CLICK HERE to enlarge poster
From October through November, bus stops in Washington, D.C. are displaying a series of provocative posters like this one, which depicts the Canadian government's alleged silencing of tar sands critics. The illustrations are the work of Canadian environmental artist Franke James, pictured in the poster.
Three years ago, James found her name on an "enemy list" of the Canadian government for her activism. Since then, she has dedicated her work to exposing efforts by Prime Minister Stephen Harper's government to undermine scientific understanding of climate change and restrict the flow of information about the climate and environmental impacts of the tar sands.
