The Price of Oil Project

$830 of $30,000 goal

Raised by 18 people in 14 months
"The Price of Oil" series is unprecedented national collaboration investigating the impacts of Canada's oil and gas industry.

The reporting requires travel, cameras and specialized scientific equipment, and a full-time editor who can coordinate the contributing reporters and researchers.

This is a volunteer effort, with several dozen people donating their time to the project. Anything you can do to help our group with the above costs would be greatly appreciated.
