CBC will be liveblogging as the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers (CAPP) and Shell Canada discuss comments by Neil Young about the oilsands industry that were made ahead of his benefit tour to help an Alberta First Nation.
Young also has a news conference set for today in Winnipeg, the second stop on his Honour the Treaties tour to help raise money for the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation (ACFN) for its fight against oilsands development.
