We've been reporting on Tzeporah Berman, the radical activist who Notley appointed to co-chair Alberta's oil sands advisory panel. Well, Karen Mahon, who once worked as a managing director for Greenpeace, is another activist that the NDP have hired on to the Oilsands Advisory Group.
Greenpeace has a long history of protesting logging companies in the boreal forest. They’ve chained themselves to equipment to stop production. They’ve successfully harassed customers of these companies from buying their products and they've also called for Quebec to put a stop to 80 kilometres of new logging roads.
Mahon herself has been arrested for crossing a court injunction zone meant to protect Kinder Morgan drillers.
What's more, Karen Mahon and Tzeporah Berman, the queen bee of anti-oil activism in Canada, go way back. Berman’s Forest Ethics was right along side Greenpeace protesting to save the Great Bear Rainforest.
There is a network of anti-oil activists helping the Alberta government achieve what they want: shutting down the oil and gas industry.
Rachel Notley and the NDP might publicly support pipelines, but hiring all of these known anti-oil operatives with your tax payer money should send a clear message.
