Late last week, we finally heard what the Alberta NDP appointed Oil Sands Advisory Group has been up to, but the biggest news was that the NDP have fired eco-activists Tzeporah Berman and Karen Mahon.
The recommendations in the non-binding report include a lot of what we would expect from a panel made up of several anti-oil activists and big oil representatives who have their own interest in keeping smaller companies out of the industry.
Let’s face it, Tzeporah Berman and Karen Mahon were too high profile for the NDP not to get rid of. They were making too many waves by campaigning for the BC NDP during that province’s election and too many people were complaining.
They say this was a mutual decision, but I wouldn’t be surprised if the pair have jobs waiting with the BC NDP.
There, they can openly work against the TransMountain pipeline without the backlash from out of work Alberta taxpayers that were forced to pay them to fight against their interests.
