Leo DiCaprio Tours Tar Sands, Joins Natives in ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

On Friday, actor Leonardo DiCaprio was in Fort Chipewyan, Alberta, with the Athabasca Chipewyan First Nation, on what was reportedly a research mission for a documentary about the Alberta Oil Sands. (Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky was there as well.) Even though the details of the yet-to-be-made film are vague, Canada's energy industry wasted no time in blasting DiCaprio.

"Like Canadians, we are growing tired of the fad of celebrity environmentalists coming into the region for a few hours or a few days, and offering their ideas and solutions to developing this resource," said a spokesman for the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers.

While there, DiCaprio and Tribal members made an ALS "Ice Bucket Challenge" video. Athabasca Chipewyan Chief Allan Adam challenged Dave Collyer, president of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers. Two other men in the video challenged Mark Little, executive vice president of Suncor's Upstream division, which handles oil sands extraction; and Ben van Beurden, CEO of Royal Dutch Shell.

DiCaprio challenged Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.
