Canada's battle of economy versus environment

Canada's economy is becoming more reliant on oil, but environmentalists fear this could accelerate climate change.

    Canada is aiming to double oil exports by 2030.

    Most of the increase will come from the oil sands of northern Alberta but environmentalists are warning of a powerful impact on greenhouse gas emissions.

    This is the second of a two part series on Canada’s growing reliance on energy exports.

    Al Jazeera's Daniel Lak reports from the oil producing province of Alberta.
