Does environmental activist Greta Thunberg need to learn a lesson about Alberta? Or is it the other way around? - 2019-10-16
The moment the teenage environmental activist mentioned on social media last weekend she was coming to the province as part of her North American tour, heads began exploding in Alberta.
According to various Twitter trolls, the 16-year-old Swede who has become an international symbol of young people's angst over climate change, is "ignorant," a "puppet" and should be "arrested for election interference."
A group pushing for Alberta independence, calling itself Wexit (as in Western Canada and Brexit — get it?), put out a social media post calling Thunberg a "European environmental agitator" and saying "we wish to inform Ms. Thunberg of Canadian law regarding Defamatory Libel."
