First Nations Leader Says Environmentalists Are Perpetuating Poverty In Native Communities

That’s precisely where the green energy crusaders want to keep Natives, says Calvin Helin, an Indigenous leader who is also head of the Eagle Spirit project that opposes the federal Liberal government’s plans to ban oil tankers from sailing off Canada’s Pacific coast.

“These environmentalists are happy to make a park in somebody else’s backyard,” Helin told the Post. “Well, screw that. You are talking about people where there is 90 per cent unemployment.”
