Kenney in unseemly company with public inquiry plans - 2019-07-08
Which brings me back to Jason Kenney, who announced this past week the establishment of a "public inquiry" (sounds more like a kangaroo court) into what he says is the campaign to stop development of Alberta's oil sands that he blames on "foreign-funded special interests."
"For more than a decade, Alberta has been the target of a well-funded, political propaganda campaign to defame our energy industry and to landlock our industry," Kenney said. Energy Minister Sonya Savage, who used to work for the pipeline lobby, said she had witnessed "the devastation and the destruction of this foreign-funded campaign."
Of course, environmental groups say this is all hogwash, that they get most of their funding from Canadian sources who will probably be encouraged to up their donations following this latest threat from Edmonton.
