On this week's episode of The Gunn Show, Michelle Stirling, Communications Manager for Friends of Science, joined me to discuss her report exposing the enormous sums of money environmentalist non-governmental organizations (ENGOs) use to influence politics in Canada.
With the popularity of three anti-carbon tax premiers — Doug Ford of Ontario, Scott Moe of Saskatchewan, New Brunswick's Blaine Higgs (and the impending election of a fourth, Jason Kenney in Alberta) —carbon taxes and climate change are losing issues for the Liberals.
But, somehow these two items remain Liberal flagship issues. They won't shut up about them!
That’s because of the power and influence environmental NGOs have over the electoral system in Canada. It's all about cash, and they have a lot of it. Sometimes single ENGOs are able to out-fundraise major political parties.
