Canada’s  very temporary prime minister and his mouthpieces continue to proclaim that the rising tide of ‘anti Harper and his policies’ in Canada is being funded by foreign interests. Undoubtedly there is some foreign money involved. I personally receive none and that’s a pity cause money is tight on a Canadian disability pension.

But to give some semblance of balance to this debate over foreign intervention in Canada’s Tar Sands debate allow me to present the following;
