Waaaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!!!!!! Greenpeace calls for Elections Canada probe of Ethical Oil

Greenpeace Canada is asking Elections Canada to investigate whether the Ethical Oil Institute is colluding with the Conservative Party in order to get around rules that limit donations to political parties.

Keith Stewart, the climate and energy campaigner for Greenpeace, has written a letter to the commissioner of Canada Elections complaining that Ethical Oil is using money raised from individuals and companies to attack government critics.

The Ethical Oil Institute, founded by writer and television host Ezra Levant, runs a website called EthicalOil.org that urges people to support Canada’s oilsands. The site, set up in 2011, claims Canada’s oil is inherently more ethical than oil produced by non­democratic countries headed by dictators.
