OTTAWA SHOULD STOP FUNDING ANTI-OIL RESEARCH
Just when you thought Canada’s nonsensical world of oil and gas policy couldn’t get any worse, consider this little nugget of lunacy.
The federal government is actually funding anti-oil research activists. Yes, your tax dollars at work.
If you visit the federal government’s Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council’s website you’ll find a document that lists grants awarded in 2015, including one for $2.5 million over six years that will fund “mapping the power of the carbon-extractive corporate resource sector.”
