Neil Young Concert Tour Surpasses Anti-Oilsands Fund Goal

Neil YoungSinger Neil Young says his controversial anti-oilsands tour has passed its $75,000 goal to raise money for a northern Alberta reserve’s fight against oilsands development, according to Huffpostmusic Canada.

“The tour has been a great success,” Young said at a press conference today in Calgary, just prior to the last of four fundraising concerts.

“Awareness was raised. Now Canada must respond in the courts,” he added, referring to a lawsuit launched by the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation against Shell Canada’s expansion of its Jackpine mine, a project even Ottawa has admitted will likely cause significant adverse environmental effects.”

Proceeds from Young’s tour will support the first nation’s legal defence fund.
