Canada’s resource industries are under attack by thousands of activists with millions of dollars in foreign funding, and LNG projects in the north are the latest target.
Vivian Krause, an independent researcher and writer, has tracked this phenomenon for more than a decade across multiple industries in Canada. She is in BC’s north this week to present information showing how Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) projects are the latest to be targeted by professional, foreign-funded activists, and to encourage northern BC communities to use this information to look out for their own best interests.
She is being hosted by The North Matters, a grassroots citizen association.
“Northern citizens are concerned with extreme foreign influence that affects our communities’ ability to review and decide on development opportunities,” says a statement from the group. “Ms. Krause is an independent investigative researcher tracing the influence of foreign funding to anti-resource activism in Canada. Her undeniable findings have cast a light on the depth and reach of foreign influence on public perceptions, public policy and international attitudes toward Canadian natural resource developments.”
The North Matters will host Krause at the following events:
