Natural Resources Minister Joe Oliver recently named US businessman George Soros during a televised interview about foreign interests involved in the Northern Gateway pipeline debate, but Soros' philanthropic organization says they are not involved in funding Canadian tar sands opposition.

Since the Minister denounced "radical" environmentalists in an open letter blaming foreign funders for hijacking Northern Gateway regulatory hearings, heated responses have been pouring out from nonprofits and liberal politicians across the country.

Oliver appeared on CBC's The National on January 9, listing American philanthropist George Soros as one of the "billionaire socialists" funding the environmental groups' "radical ideological agenda".
