Turner said Krause misrepresented the impact of the U.S. on the Canadian environmental movement because it fit conveniently into a narrative she is trying to present.

"There is no evidence that that's true and it feeds into this notion that there isn't actually broad [Canadian] grassroots support for what some of these environmental teams are doing — [when] we know there is," Turner said.

"Is it 100 percent fair to the industry, the amount of pushback that they've gotten on particular pipeline product? Maybe not — but that doesn't mean that the people involved aren't genuinely motivated by concern for the environment, by the industry's historic indifference to some of their concerns."
