I just got back from an event that was in downtown Calgary. Vivian Krause came out from British Columbia to speak to a crowd of about 1300 people, including business leaders, politicians and everyday Albertans.
She came to speak about a very important issue. She was speaking about foreign funds coming from the United States into Canada to manipulate public perceptions about our oil and gas industry.
Vivian followed the paper trail, and she says money is coming from places like the Rockefeller Foundation into Canada to fund protests and opposition campaigns to “de-market” our oil and gas.
In the crowd and speaking at the same event was W. Brett Wilson. You may know him — he's been in a little bit of hot water recently speaking about separatism and renegotiating Alberta’s place in Canada.
As for some of the people I talked to at this event, the word "separatism" came up a few times...
