Premier Jason Kenney and his government have denounced the Pembina Institute as an enemy of Alberta's energy industry with an alleged foreign-funded, anti-oil, anti-pipeline agenda.

To that end, Kenney has said Pembina will be targeted by the government's energy "war room," established to counter alleged misinformation, and the public inquiry into alleged foreign-funded attacks on the province's oil and gas industry.

But Kenney's bellicose public rhetoric is belied by his government's laudatory description of Pembina in court documents the province filed in its challenge of the federal carbon tax.
