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.
