Do you ever wonder who is funding so-called NGOs — non-governmental organizations — that lobby to change our laws? Over 100 NGOs in the last federal election campaigned against Stephen Harper, for example. There is zero interest about this by our Media Party, but there’s enough information out there to see how much is from far-left groups in the U.S.
The Tides Foundation out of San Francisco, in a single year, hands out millions of dollars in grants for anti-Canadian lobbying — by Canadian groups:
EcoJustice. Environmental Defence. The Council of Canadians. Greenpeace.
Idle No More is on there. I bet you thought that was all about Canadian aboriginals. Nope. Funded by leftists out of San Francisco.
Leadnow, the big anti-oilsands group whose former executive director is now the chief of staff to Alberta’s energy minister? Foreign funded.
What should we do about it?
First, you can sign the petition by our B.C. Bureau Chief, Christopher Wilson, to get the American Tides Foundation out of Canadian politics.
VISIT TidesOut.ca to watch his special video report and sign the petition. (And please share it!)
Did you know that Israel just passed a law requiring all NGOs that receive 50% or more of their funds from foreign entities to prominently disclose that to the public.
Don’t you think we should do that in Canada, too?
Then let's start here, today: Visit TidesOut.ca to sign our petition.
