Tides Canada is a registered charity and non-profit funded by progressive foundations and billionaires like George Soros for political gain. They’ve spent millions against Canadian oil and gas, pipelines and blocking oil export to Asia, and it’s working.
Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson is in on it. He was the director of Tides and founded and chairs “Happy Planet”, an organic food and smoothie outfit run by a network of Tides Canada charities.
Hollyhock, an activist training centre mainly funded by Tides, pledged to vote for Vision Vancouver, Robertson’s municipal party which raised questions about breaking Canada Revenue Agency rules that proscribe charities from taking part in partisan politics.
Through Vision Vancouver, Robertson is targeting Kinder Morgan using tax dollars. The website www.notworththerisk.ca hosted by the City of Vancouver, urges people to contact the Federal government about the Trans Mountain pipeline project.
Catherine McKenna stacks the National Energy Board review panel with anti-oil appointees, Rachel Notley stacks her climate change and oil sands panels with anti-oil members and now Vancouver’s Mayor is using taxpayer dollars to fight against the Trans Mountain pipeline.
Politicians from three levels of government are fighting against Canada’s oil and gas industry and Vancouver’s Mayor is just another anti-oil activist who’s in on it.
