The Trudeau government is funding a witch hunt on the energy sector.
The new liberal government just gave a 2.5 million grant to the Parkland Institute at the University of Alberta and their partners at the Canadian Center for Policy Alternatives to “examine the corporations and the individuals driving fossil fuel extraction in Western Canada, and their resulting political influence.”
The project is called Mapping the Power of the Carbon Extraction Corporate Resource Sector and it has a huge grant from the Social Sciences Humanities Research Council. That’s a federal government agency that promotes post-secondary research into the humanities.
Parkland’s “Mapping the Power” project is positively Orwellian. The objectives include:
“A systematic mapping of how the carbon-extractive industry is organized, including what companies are involved, who runs them, how they are owned, and how they connect to broader international corporate networks.”; and
“Development of an open source, publicly accessible corporate database and training program for citizens and civil society groups, many of whom will contribute and update data.”
That’s scary stuff.
This is a witch hunt on the western economy and the people who support it and advocate for jobs and Canadian exports.
The Parkland Institute is getting government money, your tax dollars, to document you, the businesses you own or invest in and then make a shareable data base for every crack pot, protester and meddling left wing academic to pester you with.
Would you give Greenpeace, Forest Ethics, Tides, or George Soros your name, address and business info? If the answer is no, then you should be outraged that the Federal Liberals are giving Parkland Institute a big grant to do just that.
