Tides Canada is having its charitable status audited by the Canada Revenue Agency in the midst of an attack by Conservative politicians who have branded it a foreign-funded radical group.

The Vancouver-based group finances a broad range of social, educational and environmental work, but also serves as a clearinghouse for foreign donors that want to donate here but do not have Canadian charitable status.

Conservative critics contend that Tides Canada has been funnelling money from politically motivated foreign charities to advocacy groups here that oppose Canadian oil-sands development, and in particular the Northern Gateway pipeline.
