Boycott of Alberta Urged By San Francisco's 'Corporate Ethics.' Canadians Pissed, Eh?

Corporate Ethics International, a rabble-rousing San Francisco environmental nonprofit, on Thursday launched a campaign urging a boycott of Alberta in protest of the Canadian province's oil sands petroleum extraction project.

The group has erected a billboard in Seattle comparing environmental damage from the oil sands project with the BP spill, and released a video claiming the tar sands are destroying an area twice the size of England.
