Top definition
An improper name given to the Athabasca oil sands by tree hugging hippies with useless university degrees. They seem to think it makes the general public take their side and boycott north american produced oil in favour of oil from nations with questionable governments/interests.
Uneducated hippie: "stop mining the tar sands, save the earth!"

Businessman: "it's not tar you dumbass, it's a synthetic form of oil called bitumen. Here's some change, go home"
