CFN – The Chicago based Heartland Institute made headlines earlier this year during the Denialgate scandal, when climate scientist Peter Gleick revealed its true agenda. Eight documents, seven of which were obtained by subterfuge, showed clearly that the Heartland Institute was one of the key PR companies paid to sew doubt about the facts of [...]
CFN – It should be no surprise that Ezra Levant would do anything he can to sabotage Ontario’s efforts to bring its economy into the twenty-first century. After all, it was Levant who invented the “Ethical Oil” myth, so he has an obligation to the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers and its members to look [...]
CFN – Climate change is a major topic for discussion, and with the recent revelations of the Heartland Institute’s conspiracy to fake the science involved (Fakegate, or Denialgate), for their own economic benefit and that of their clients, people are naturally confused about the whole issue. Very briefly, climate change (or global warming) is caused [...]
The previous article in this series covered a brief history of Climategate, the theft of numerous documents from a server at the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia. Heartland – Serving Big Tobacco and Big Oil Bullying is one of the main weapons of the climate science denial industry – the other [...]
CFN – Climategate is back in the news again, but not in the way the climate science denial industry would like. It appears that one of the denial industry’s main companies, the Heartland Institute, has had some embarrassing email and document leaks, and is in heavy damage control mode. When Climategate first broke the news [...]
CFN- What distinguishes a democracy from its totalitarian neighbours? Freedom to move, to go where one wants, including freedom to leave. Freedom to work at one’s chosen career (assuming jobs are available). Freedom to be friends or lovers with whomever one wants. Freedom of religion, to worship (or not worship) as one believes. Freedom to [...]
CFN- Ezra Levant’s myth, “Ethical Oil” is currently receiving a lot of publicity as part of the Canadian and Alberta Governments’ push to sell Tar Sands oil to the US and China. The myth’s premise is that it is OK to buy Canadian Tar Sands oil, because it comes from an “ethical” source, but not [...]
CFN – With the Harper Government now proceeding at full throttle to push through the Northern Gateway oil pipeline to supply China, an unexpected crack has appeared within the governing party’s ranks. Calgary West Ultra-Right Conservative MP Rob Anders is publicly questioning the proposal to sell Canadian “Ethical Oil” resources to non-ethical Communist China, despite Ezra Levant’s [...]
CFN- Like last century’s master of propaganda, Josef Goebbels, Sun Media columnist and “Ethical Oil” creator Ezra Levant is no idiot. Goebbels had a Doctorate degree in German literature – Levant graduated from the University of Alberta Law School. Both these gentlemen used the press effectively and to their advantage (Goebbels in Der Angriff and [...]
TO: Cornwall Free News RE: Ezra Levant – Friend of China, but Foe to Canadians December 31, 2011 Editor: Contrary to the innuendo in this article, no business connection exists between the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers and Ezra Levant. Nor does CAPP provide funding to the growing ethical oil movement based on Mr. Levant’s book and [...]
Putting the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers above Canada CFN – There are many economic gains to be made in exploiting the Tar Sands, and limited production could actually benefit Canada and go a little towards assuring our future in an increasingly uncertain world. But there are also many major short term gains to be [...]
CFN – Prime Minister Stephen Harper, along with his government, owe sophist (someone who argues with shrewd but intentionally fallacious reasoning) Ezra Levant a star columnist for Sun Media and the Glenn Beck Fox News North) big time, and are starting to repay the debt. Levant’s whole career has been tied to or sponsored by [...]
Cornwall ON – Once again, the TV Consortium has decided to exclude the Green Party Leader, Mike Schreiner, from the televised leaders’ debate, to be broadcast September 27. Although other provincial broadcast consortia have (or are planning) to allow their provincial Green Parties into the debate (e.g. PEI), the Ontario consortium is following the lead [...]
Cornwall ON -Provincial Liberal Candidate Mark MacDonald has some big shoes to fill, now that current MPP Jim Brownell is retiring. Although he has been campaigning for a while now, with the official opening of the Liberal campaign office on Pitt and Seventh in Cornwall, the campaign is now in high gear.Through talking to voters [...]
Cornwall ON – This weekend will see a meeting of Canada’s Federal, Provincial and Territorial Energy ministers, hosted by the Province of Alberta and the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers. The meeting is expected to cost about $600,000 – significantly more than it needs, as much of it will take place in Calgary. Accommodation costs [...]
Cornwall ON – Now that the election is coming to its climax, the inevitable question arises: Is it worth voting, and if so, for whom? Guy Lauzon For someone who is already 67, and who will be over 70 when the next election is called, Guy Lauzon, the Conservative incumbent, has campaigned remarkably well. However, [...]
Cornwall ON – Since last autumn, gas and diesel prices have gone up by about 30%, and are showing no signs of stabilising, never mind dropping. One of the main culprits is Libya, which, prior to its civil war, was producing about 1.8 million barrels a day (somewhat more than all Alberta production). The second [...]
Cornwall ON – Did you know that every first of October is now “National Seniors (sic) Day” in Canada, as reported last October (unfortunately, after the fact) by the Seaway News? Most seniors probably missed this momentous event, especially with more pressing concerns such as healthcare, the ever-rising costs of food, energy and housing, and [...]
