Scheer reaffirmed his party's commitment to support Canada's energy sector, saying one of his party's core commitments is to "ban foreign-funded activist groups from participating in the pre-approvals process for large energy projects."

The mention of "foreign-funded activist groups" having a role in landlocking the energy industry in Western Canada resurrects an argument made in a 2012 open letter by former Conservative natural resources minister Joe Oliver.

Amid debate about the fate of Enbridge's Northern Gateway pipeline, Oliver blamed foreign-funded "radical groups" for finding any means necessary to "achieve their radical ideological agenda" to block resource development.
