Alberta Needs To Revolt Against All Leeches!

We are stuck with a useless Premier at a time when we need a Ralph Klein back to protect Alberta from federal MP's bent on stopping oilsands development. These opposition MP's are not investigating the impact of flooding lands for hydro development because that would tick Quebec off. The environmental groups aren't being funded to stop mining in Ontario and Quebec but they are getting millions from Americans to "demarket" the oilsands. It makes me wonder why all opposition parties voted to stop tanker traffic in northern BC. We know they are supported by the unions, feminists and special interest groups like the environmentalists. Who else is influencing those MP's?

I starting reading the Hansard because of a post by Just Right. Some interesting testimony by some interesting parties, but the opposition is deaf to anything that does not support their own biased thinking.

According to my analysis and preliminary calculations, over the past ten years American foundations have spent approximately $300 million on conservation initiatives in Canada and the so-called reform of our resource-based industries—forestry, mining, aquaculture, and oil and gas. About $50 million of that went straight to first nations, especially on the coast of British Columbia, including, for example, one grant for $27.3 million. That was a single grant.

    Roughly 80% of that $209 million came from five foundations: the Hewlett Foundation, the Packard Foundation, the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation, the Pew Charitable Trusts, and the Rockefeller Brothers Fund. These are the foundations I have referred to as “The Big Five”. They have $22 billion in assets. They give away $1.2 billion every year. Their CEOs earn $600,000 to $700,000 a year. Their senior environmental staff are paid in the $300,000 range. Some of these professional environmentalists are paid more than the Prime Minister of our country.
 Read the whole thing, it's very enlightening. No wonder the environmentalists are screaming so loudly, the Americans are paying them to do it. More proof that the "global warming" scam is all about money and not the environment.

The fight is not over, and businesses are seeing the advantage of the "global warming" scam. They want in on the whole mess because they see the ability to tax the consumer while making it seem that they are helping to save the world.  A prime example is RBC.

Canada’s biggest bank has unveiled stronger environmental and social risk management policies.
The policy changes by Royal Bank of Canada come just weeks after Canada gave its official support to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.
The Rainforest Action Network said the changes are a clear signal that RBC is standing up for aboriginal rights and stepping away from oil sands projects.
The group, along with First Nations and other shareholders, has spent two years campaigning against RBC and other Canadian banks that provide financing and business services to energy companies that operate in Alberta’s oil sands.
I say boycott the Royal Bank of Canada until they divest themselves of ALL their investments in the oilsands, this applies to ALL unions, like the Ontario Teachers Union, and all Quebec unions.

You can claim anything you want, but don't take us for fools. We understand perfectly that you are talking out of both sides of your mouth at one time, just like the First Nations who are getting American money to protest the oil pipelines, as they negotiate with the provinces to get huge royalties from those same oil pipelines.

Alberta needs to revolt against all these leeches. They want more taxes from the profitable businesses while taking money from American "charities" who want more control of the development of OUR resources.  Wake up Alberta, enough is enough!

I'm with you man. What is our next step? We are awake, we are standing up. We need tools. We need plans. We need to organize.

Why is the media and government in Alberta not fighting this on the air waves?

The jobs and benefits need to be promoted for the pipeline to Asia through Northern BC.

I joked the Federal Government should have asked for a friendly admendment to ban all tanker traffic on the east coast and lower mainland in the spirit of the nutty coalition.

Great post, hunter! And thanks for the link.

Another US based foundation that Ezra mentioned is Tides which (via its Canadian arm) donated $300,000 to help get lefty/green Gregor Robertson elected mayor of Vancouver. The plot seems quite thick.

Southern Quebec said... are a Jedi. You have the the tool.

Anyone know if Ezra has stopped lobbying?

CanadianSense(sic) I don't think the pipeline is going to Asia...srsly...

You are welcome JR, it lead me to Ezra and the Hansard, funny how the media fails to report on what the real experts are saying.

Alex, I think the next step is to look closely at who we vote for next provincial election. Or we start our own Alberta tea party!

Poor SQ still trying hard to be a lefty and failing badly. Come on into the light SQ, you will be much happier!

Alex said...

WRA That is all I have to say about tea parties in Alberta.

Haha SQ can't resist taking a shot at me. I made her look really stupid once. Okay stupider.
