Asking some fair questions of Tides Canada - 2012-05-10
It is her work that has ignited the federal Conservatives' interest in the foreign funding of environmental groups in Canada. Ms. Krause was the first to raise concerns about the activities of a registered Canadian charity known as Tides Canada.
The Vancouver-based organization acts as a distribution centre, of sorts, for foreign donors that want to donate in Canada but don't have charitable status. It funds environmental groups, many of whom oppose oil-sands development and ventures related to it such as the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline project.
