When Alberta Premier Jason Kenney announced his government would be creating a "war room" during the spring election campaign, a local activist group, Climate Justice Edmonton, saw an opportunity.

Kenney's war room — later rebranded as an independent corporation named the Canadian Energy Centre — would be allocated $30 million in government money to "respond in real time to the lies and myths told about Alberta's energy industry," according to the United Conservative Party (UCP) platform.

The day after the election, on April 17, Climate Justice Edmonton launched its counter-attack — an online fundraising campaign for "A 'War Room' to Beat Kenney's War Room."
