The catalyst is David Suzuki.
The spark is the University of Alberta’s plan to grant the tele-environmentalist an honorary degree.
And the fuel? It’s not bitumen. It’s not oil or gas. It’s the palpable rage that Albertans feel over having their main industry constantly demonized by U.S.-funded, non-governmental organizations like the David Suzuki Foundation, Tides Canada, Dogwood, Leadnow, etc. while oil products from oppressive regimes like Saudi Arabia, Venezuela and Azerbaijan fill eastern Canadian gas tanks.
