Proof: How Tides used CASH to “astroturf” aboriginal opposition to fossil fuels

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Tides, that massive American environmental charity is doing it’s best to foment trouble here in Alberta and I have the grant pay-outs to prove it. 

Remember Tides, the San Francisco based monstrosity that acts as the bank account for environmental groups to astroturf opposition to Canadian oil and gas?

They like to use groups on the ground in Canada so it appears as if opposition to oil and gas development is local and legitimate but in reality, it’s anything but-it’s all about the green-cash that is.

Part of Tides' strategy in Canada is to whip up aboriginal opposition to oil and gas development.

But that means getting aboriginals to be opposed to one of the largest job creators for indigenous people in the country: oil and gas and mining.

People won't oppose their own jobs unless there’s something in it for them and Tides knows it.

Watch my video to see the two grants, in cash, made to an Alberta First Nation in 2015.

Beaver Lake Cree took $50,000 to oppose Alberta jobs in the middle of the worst job crisis in a generation.

It’s not the first time Tides has funded a First Nation to oppose oil and gas, but this time it’s different. They aren’t doling out their dirty cash in the well known oilsands hub of Fort McMurray or along a pipeline route. This time they’re headed straight to where many of the last jobs are near Cold Lake, Alberta.

It looks like “antis” have figured something out. The aboriginals in Fort Mac are fed up with them and they're speaking out. Tides has to find new people to use to front their cause and a new place to attack, one where people are still working.

What this all means is that the environmentalists are catching on, evolving their tactics and being more strategic.

The antis aren’t content to just have their man in the Prime Minister's office.

They won't be happy until no Canadian oil and gas flows and everyone is unemployed, which will be great…. for Saudi Arabia.

Job well done Sheila!!
For once I would like the CBC to stand up & do a report just like this one. They have no right & they’re not at all embarrassed to take money from all parties’ taxpayers & then bring us nothing but partisan stories,,,,, the same goes for the Beaver Lake Cree chief who also is on the dole for such money & propped up by a bunch of hypocrite Hollywood loons, bashes an industry that can lift his people. This chief has no pride obviously & he’s quite content to keep his people from the benifits associated with having good paying jobs. His members should demand he step down & be replaced by someone who will act on their behalf to improve their lot in life.
Furthermore, A bill should be in the works by the Conservatives to prohibit American orgs from funding or paying anyone to protest against the oil & gas industries. These groups are meddling in our economy & that should not be tolerated.

ROBERT HEWGILL…has expanded on and exposed the BULK of the climate change monsters that we are up against. Globalism, the corrupt and Islamacised UN, Gore and his money grubbing ilk, Trudidiot backed by the Saint and cbc, what a joke. Industry lost, wealth engines in Canada destroyed (with gracious help from Notley and Wynne). WTF…we are fast approaching the LAST STAND. At times I cry, at times I can’t sleep, at times I think of doing unspeakable acts. Like LIZA ROSIE has stated on occasion, might be time to melt into the wilderness, live off the land, and eliminate ourselves completely from the leftist regressive cesspool the world has become. I am getting old, but I FEAR for my kids, their spouses and my first grandchild due in May, or any ensuing grand kids. Cynic I am, Cynic I suppose I’ll remain.

WW3 looms anyway. At times I tire and want to give up, BUT I’M NOT GOING TO!!!

WAYNE GILRAINE…You mentioned a few of the possible funders, RON VOSS added serpent Soros to the mix, (who seems to fund every despicable entity on the planet), sort of from soup to nuts philosophy. But DON’T forget Tom Steyer, the eco green jackass who made a FORTUNE off of Alberta’s oilsands only to use the proceeds to try and destroy us. Mix in Saint Suzuki who accepts graft and is on Tide’s payroll as a facilitator and propaganda front man ,a true eco whore. And there you have it.

SALLY CC….I too worked many years in the oil patch. Astonishing how clueless the phony anti fossil fuel fools are. Elitist co*ksu**ers who drive their BMWs to the waters edge, climb in a kyak made of fossil fuels, and paddle off to protest the twinning of Kinder Morgan pipeline which would ultimately bring product to the refinery so they could drive their Beamers. That makes sense doesn’t it.

SALLY…Thanks to you and your husband’s hard work and contribution to the BETTERMENT of society. The basement dwellers would not even understand the concept of back breaking work and sacrifice by others just so they could have a God damned computer to play games and spew their garbage.

DREW….Sort of a false alarm last night. The segment on the news dealt with diminishing perma frost in the Arctic. Due to climate change of course, as WE know from natural changes far beyond our control. Usual cbc presentation, and the final question to the aboriginal spokesman answered with the usual…..“we have to cut emissions”.

Great reporting Sheila!

David, that commercial/PROPAGANDA certainly smells like Liberanos funding with our tax dollars!
I would love to challenge all these oil & gas haters/demonizers to live without fossil fuels and go totally off the grid. How many vacays would these fat cats have if they could not fly around in their jets or drive their precious giant SUVs! I also bet their homes are huge & sucking up enormous amounts of electiricity to cool in the summer & gas to heat in the winter. HYPROCRITES! My husband is an oil & gas worker & has paid a huge price physically to do that job, it is certainly not a comfy, safe job like Catherine McKenna or PMJT has ever seen the likes of. These workers are gone for 30 days or more from their families working in conditions most people could never or would never endure. How dare they demonize the very men & women who have paid a heavy price to discover oil & gas for their consumption, as if it just came by magically flipping on a light switch or filling up their vehicles. Oil & gas and the workers who search for it should be celebrated, not demonized.

Sheila, thank you. That reporting is worth your weight in gold.
Proof of corrupt “foreign”? intervention in Canadian affairs. Proof of how such bought propoganda can be used to disadvantage Canadians, not the least of whom are those hard working Canadian band members.
A grand news scoop!
Now to find the source of Tides funding that is used to dupe our electorate … to prove how much of it, if not most of it?, is funded by our “competitors” (if not outright enemies)? … Saudi? Iran? Russia? … to name a few (their governments at least).
Fabulous report. Flush ’em out!
Thank you//

David White it would not surprise me to see some eco kook blame the oil companies because he can do a blue flamer.

A bit unrelated but while watching the hockey playoffs tonight an add came on for the cbc NATIONAL news tonight. I know watching cbc could be detrimental to one’s health, but this is probably worth a look. It is something to do with fossil fuels/climate change propaganda, and I noticed a clip with someone poking a hole in the ice on a pond and lighting the released gas. I can just imagine this is because of fracking or some other bs reason. I can burn gas off at my kitchen tap and it has NOTHING to do with fracking. Should be worth the watch, we can keep an eye on Trudeaus private tax payer funded tv network. May be wise to take a gravol prior to watching.

beaver lake cree took the money to oppose oilpatch jobs because the band bigwigs can’t exert control over band members who have economic freedom due to well paying jobs…

Thanks SHEILA for pointing these anti Alberta grants out

Druhilda has got to be voted out next election

I apologize for going off topic on you Sheila but the twit who tweets you, Druh Farrell, who describes herself as a City of Calgary Councillor, tweets that “Alberta continues to lead the pack on violence against women”. https://twitter.com/DruhFarrell/status/853980273540603904
Is it just me, or does Farrell realize what she wrote? Does she think that’s something to brag about? Perhaps she should find some way to make a contribution to society that’s more in line with her limited skill set.

However, of that $50 K I will bet only a maximum of 10 out of the 400 saw any of the cash. And the ones no longer in Beaver Lake are in Cold Lake working, but because they are working they will not be listened to because the are just apples for wanting to work.
