Alberta to hold $2.5-million public inquiry into funding for oil and gas foes - 2019-07-07
The Alberta government will hold a public inquiry into environmental groups that it says have been bankrolled by foreign benefactors hell-bent on keeping Canada's oil and gas from reaching new markets while letting oil production grow unabated in the Middle East and the United States.
"They often say that sunlight is the best disinfectant. This public inquiry will be sunlight on the activities of this campaign," Premier Jason Kenney said Thursday.
"It will investigate all of the national and international connections, follow the money trail and expose all of the interests involved."
