With the exception of Donald Trump's claim that he's draining the swamp, it's hard to imagine a clearer example of gibberish than Jason Kenney's claim that he's defending Alberta against "foreign-funded special interests."

The Alberta premier has launched a public inquiry to expose the foreign funding behind environmental groups opposing his efforts to increase production of Alberta's carbon-heavy oil.

But Kenney's claim to be shielding Albertans from foreign "special interests" is absurdly selective; he's planning to shine the light on a small slice of foreign influence, while keeping the spotlight away from the massive foreign influence exerted by Big Oil.
