The narrative Jason Kenney offers Albertans about all-powerful foreigners turning Canadians against the oilsands is weak and factually false.

It survives only because it's more compelling than the subtext Albertans probably hear in our climate campaigning: "We're good, you're bad. You need to be stopped for the good of other people's families, even if it hurts your own."

Will this resonate with Albertans, whose province is suffering the ravages of resource-royalty addiction, who all know laid-off family or friends and who might worry about their own livelihoods and futures?
