Trudeau's hypocrisy regarding foreign funding should be evident to all

National Post: 'When it was the right sort of foreign donations to the right kind of cause — donations that helped the Liberals in the October 2015 federal election, for example — the Liberals were sanguine about U.S. money pouring in, even though the donations appeared to be in contravention of the Canada Elections Act. A report by a registered society called Canada Decides concluded that “the 2015 election was skewed by money from wealthy foreigners.”

'Another “right sort” of foreign donors are anti-fossil fuels activists, in particular the deeply controversial and notoriously anti-oil Tides Foundation. An inquiry into the scale of foreign funds aimed at damaging Alberta’s oil and gas industry, launched by Alberta Premier Jason Kenney’s government, issued a report last October that found foreign donors had provided nearly $1.3 billion for environmental campaigns between 2003 and 2019.

'Of that total, the report found that $54.1 million in foreign funds, representing 21 groups, were targeted specifically at “anti-Alberta resource development activity.” In an interview, Alberta Energy Minister Sonya Savage said, “We have a right to be outraged.”'
