This past October 2013, I was walking with many of my family, friends who were mostly children on a historic walk to create awareness about an oil spill by Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. (CNRL). The spill started in May 2013 near Cold Lake, Alberta within Treaties 6 and 8 territories. To this day, CNRL still has no idea how to stop it.
