Former Imperial Oil chairman among top funders of third party group that is running billboard attack ads ahead of Alberta's next election

A sovereignist group that is running third party attack ads ahead of Alberta's provincial election is funded by wealthy business people, including the former chairmen of Imperial Oil and Potash.

The Buffalo Project, a group launched by disgruntled business elites with help from former Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall and Calgary millionaire W. Brett Wilson, has advocated for greater autonomy for Alberta and praised Danielle Smith during the 2022 UCP leadership race for putting forward her controversial Sovereignty Act.
