Letter – Attack just a distraction

Attack just a distraction

Oil industry front group “Ethical Oil” is trying to invalidate the claims of Canadian environmental groups by attacking their funding sources. This same group admits on their website that they “do accept donations from individuals and companies, including those working to produce ethical oil.” This attack is nothing but an industry-sponsored distraction from the very real issues of environmental protection, local governance, and economics.
