More proof Tides Canada charity is funding oil protesters – Conservative minister remains silent


In the Financial Post, Vivian Krauss outlines how Tides Canada is backing anti-oil pipeline protesters like the two who interrupted PM Stephen Harper’s event in Vancouver as well as Lefty politicians like Vancouver’s mayor:

Mr. Devlin is a well-known activist and man of many hats. He’s a stand-up comedian. He’s also a central figure in a network of activists supported by the U.S. Tides Foundation (“Tides USA”). The hub of this network is Hollyhock, an ocean-front retreat centre situated on Cortes, a remote island in British Columbia.

Devlin is also part of Truthfool Communications, a company that provides “creative and strategic services” to various organizations, including Vision Vancouver, the political party of Vancouver’s Mayor, Gregor Robertson. Truthfool has also done work for LeadNow and Greenpeace, both of which are funded by Tides and other sources. (see here)

This is not the first time Tides has been exposed by people like Krauss so ask yourself why Minister Kerry-Lynne Findlay who is in charge of the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) which oversees our charity laws has remained completely silent?

If Findlay refuses to weed-out these law-breaking charities, she should resign in disgrace or be fired. Enough is enough.

    There is no need to more laws, rules or laws to deal with this. All that is required is for the CRA to enforce their existing regulations fairly and equally to all groups receiving charity status. The moment they involve themselves in politics, their charity status is revoked. So why are they not doing their job? That is a valid question to put to government.

    How close is the government’s ignoring these people enabling the possibility of anarchy?

    A politician show some spine? Surely you jest.
