Would it bother you if I told you that American environmental interests with a stake in shutting down Canadian industry had hired lobbyists in Ottawa? Would you wonder why they were trying to influence Canadian laws, regulations and public policy?
Now what if I told you that not only were these American interests hiring a lobbyist but that this lobbyist was getting face time with some of the most powerful people in the Trudeau government?
Watch my video to meet Aaron Freeman, a lawyer, progressive and part time university professor with impeccable green movement credentials that the American’s have hired.
It won’t surprise many of you to know that U.S. interests want to shut down Canada’s oil industry. We’ve been telling you about this for years even showing you power point presentations describing their plan of using Canadian green groups and first nations organizations to mount a public campaign against Canadian oil using American money.
Now that they have a friendly government in place, Environmental Defense doesn't need to use front groups. They get face time with all these people in government directly, all willing to give an American lobbyist time to push an anti-Canadian, anti-industry and anti-jobs agenda.
A Rockefeller funded group that wants Canadians out of work, an industry shut down and workers sitting idle or installing solar panels made over seas, getting the ear of the most powerful voices in the government.
Don't you think this is news? Don't you think the other media should be all over this?
But most importantly don't you think that the government message to this Washington hired lobbyist should be take a hike? Worry about what happens in DC?
This government pays lip service to the natural resources sector and getting our products to market but lend their ears and time to those that would shut those industries down.
That should worry all of us.
