INTERVIEW: Neil Young's "Honor The Treaties" Tour | Q with Jian Ghomeshi | CBC Radio
As we've been reporting over the past week, huge amounts of controversy over Neil Young's "Honor The Treaties" tour and related press conferences.
Regardless of your position on the Alberta Tar Sands environmental impacts and First nations peoples, all across Canada there's consensus that Neil Young's comments have finally started a long delayed national dialogue.
In an interview with Jian Ghomeshi, Neil comments on his impressions of the Alberta Tar Sands operations and his comparison of Fort McMurray to Hiroshima. "I always felt that Canada was a different place, where the values were different and where we cherish the natural surroundings that we're in. But my visit to Alberta changed a lot of that for me," Young says while defending his right to speak freely take political stands.
