Who’s working for who? Docs reveal unelected anti-oil activist’s close ties to Notley NDP

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Remember Tzeporah Berman, the anti-oilsands activist who Rachel Notley made co-chair of the Alberta Oil Sands Advisory Group? I now have proof that she’s so intertwined with the NDP government that she may as well be running it. 

Berman lobbied against Canadian oil and gas projects through Greenpeace and ForestEthics using foreign money.

She’s not even from Alberta, and was still campaigning for the BC NDP - the party that opposes the TransMountain pipeline - even after Notley forbade it.

She has lobbied against the TransMountain pipeline and helped the BC NDP win some of the seats they gained in the latest election.

Watch as I share what was revealed in documents I’ve obtained that show Berman’s influence in the Alberta NDP goes well beyond the Oil Sands Advisory Group.

These emails reveal Berman introducing her friends from Iron and Earth, a new "grassroots" organization that proposes to retrain unemployed oil workers in the renewable energy sector, and they’re looking for government money, your money, to fund their initiative.

I said Notley appointed Berman to OSAG, but after seeing these emails that show clear ties between Berman and the NDP, I wouldn’t doubt that Berman herself crafted the entire idea, appointed herself and other panel members.

But that’s a story for another video, so stay tuned as I uncover more of these deep unethical ties this unelected activist has with the Alberta government.

Berman was telling them what to say so she’ll get her way. She’s drunk on power and bonkers with some screws loose. Notley can’t control her, time to cut her loose or as Ndp will do, give her the keys to the car that drives this issue.

Good investigative journalism in the digging up Berman’s memo but, wow it’s a huge unfounded leap to portray Berman as the puppet-master. The memo is Berman begging for funds and statements of support for a failed start-up enviro-NGO. Iron & Earth is a dud like all Hildebrand’s projects. The power, in this instance, resides with the Ministers and their deputies not with Berman. But, yes fire her nonetheless, I agree with the conclusion.

Once again, one has to wonder if the Alberta Minister of Energy actually exists, because all energy matters are sort of a part of the energy mandate.

I look forward to more Ms. Nicholas.

Good work Holly, but like you said — not surprising.
The gov’ts in Edmonton and Ottawa are cesspools of corruption; lacking any sense of morals, ethics, and integrity.
I just hope the NEXT governments don’t allow some of those “attributes” to creep into their conduct.
