Tzeporah Berman is the most radical, outspoken, uncompromising, and likely most recognizable eco-activist in Canada.
For 25 years Berman has been leading radical protest movements across our country from anti-forestry protests in Clayquot Sound, BC in the 1990’s to more recently campaigning against the Canadian oil and gas industry from pipelines to fracking.
And now today she sits on the Alberta government’s Oil Sands Advisory Group.
Where else could a radical eco-activist like Tzeporah get a job working for a government besides the Alberta NDP?
Well actually, the BC Liberals.
Watch as I show you her history in BC and how close she is to eco-radical Vancouver Mayor, Gregor Robertson.
What I saw in a tweet by Berman is certainly a conflict of interest for the Alberta government she now works for.
Rachel Notely just wrapped up a week in Vancouver holding numerous meetings trying to sell those opposed to the recently approved Kinder Morgan pipeline project on its merits.
So why on earth is someone sitting on her Oil Sands Advisory Group fundraising for the most anti-oil sands political party and TIDES Canada associated Vision Vancouver?
Our politicians need to stop falling for the idea that somehow naming destroyers like Tzeporah to advisory groups, gains favour with radical environmentalists.
They will oppose all forms of development until we are all in energy poverty and into a stage of negative growth which is ultimately, what these environmental extremists want.
Let's stop hiring foreign funded radicals like Tzeporah, and stop giving her the opportunity to do so much damage.
