Why is Tides Foundation USA Trying to Shut Down Canada’s Oil Sands Industry?

The Tides Foundation is another George Soros front organization.
Vivian Krause has the story:

$US 10 Million for 43 Organizations in a “TAR SANDS” Campaign. Paid for by Tides USA (2009/2010)

(h/t: Alberta Oil Peon)
Researcher Vivian Krause

Acting in concert, environmental organizations are campaigning against the Alberta oilsands, and more broadly, against the export of Canadian oil. Banning oil tanker traffic on the strategic, north coast of British Columbia, as environmental organizations are demanding, would block exports of Canadian oil to China and other Asian countries. No oil tankers means no oil exports.

In both the U.S. and Canada, a large number of these environmental organizations are all funded by a single American foundation: The Tides Foundation (“Tides USA”).

According to U.S. tax returns for 2009 and 2010, Tides USA has paid a total of $10.2 Million to 44 organizations that campaign against Canadian oil. The top recipient was Corporate Ethics International which runs RETHINK ALBERTA, a campaign to pressure the Alberta government by depicting Alberta in a negative light.

In 2010 alone, the Sierra Club was paid $420,000, Environmental Defense Canada Inc. was paid $250,000 and Greenpeace Canada was paid $200,000 for participation in the “Tar Sands Campaign,” according to 2010 tax returns for Tides USA.

As reported in The Financial Post, in 2009 the U.S. Tides Foundation and Tides Canada funded a total of 36 organizations that campaign against the development of the Alberta oilsands. Of these, 26 organizations were funded by the Tides USA.  The total granted to these organizations by Tides USA was $3.6 Million for 2009, according to U.S. tax returns.

In 2009, Tides Canada Foundation paid at least $7 million to 20 organizations that campaign against Canadian oil, according to analysis of Tides Canada’s U.S. tax returns. In 2009, fully half of Tides Canada’s grants went towards projects on a small but very strategic part of the Canadian coastline: the north coast of B.C., right smack where oil tankers export bound for Asia would need to travel.

Thanks’s my friend, reposted I had no idea Tides was backing this. Need to line up the Greens put them in Daisy Cutters and dump their asses in the Middle East or South Asia. Ya think they might have new issues to be concerned about?LMAO

Great article! Now my blood pressure is rising though…
That man is like a shape-shifter…funding all these far-Left and pro-terror groups. Perfect example of the evil islamofascist alliance. I guess stealing property from Hungarian jews who were sent to the death camps wasn’t enough for this cockroach. He wants to destroy our economy and help stealth jihad worm its way into our democracy. He probably would love it if Iran nuked Israel.

I do not understand why Soros is so against industrialized Western civilization. Surely he is aware of the fact that the only thing that is stopping the jihadists from destroying the West and imposing Sharia law is Western technological superiority. If the Jihadists take over forget about gay rights, womens rights and a green Utopia as women will once again be valued by how many children they have. Hmmm.

The Tides Foundation?

In that case that would be a front for the Sowdis. According to Ezra Levant it is the Sowdi Barbarians who’d have most to lose if the project goes ahead. The Obamster is in their pocket and so are the Klintoons. Soros is only doing their dirty work then?
