If you care about the Canadian energy sector and its often unfair treatment at the hands of U.S. foundation-supported activists, then you probably know about Vancouver-based researcher and writer Vivian Krause.
Her carefully documented research on the funding network of U.S. foundations and their influence on Canadian anti-energy groups is becoming both widely known and highly valued by interested citizens of every stripe from coast to coast to coast.
And if you live in the Calgary area, then you may already have made plans to come to a speaking event this Wednesday featuring Vivian and her findings and views on how these U.S. funding patterns are influencing the activist discourse in Canada.
But if you haven’t yet seen Vivian present her findings, or if you’ve missed the dozens of articles she’s written for various publications including - most frequently - the National Post, then please attend our upcoming lunch event this Wednesday. Here are the details:
WHAT: Researcher and writer Vivian Krause discusses ‘U.S.-Funded Environmental & Election Activism in Canada’
WHERE: John Dutton Theatre, Calgary Central Library, Downtown
WHEN: Wednesday, June 20 from 11:45AM to 1:15PM
Independent, self-directed, focused and articulate, Vivian has made a real difference in the contentious, slanted campaign against the single largest contributor to our country’s economy – by shining a spotlight on the finances and structures behind many activist groups.
Vivian calls for transparency, and she’s willing to call out unfair play. Come and listen. You’ll be in for a fascinating and enlightening experience. Please join us on Wednesday!
We have a max capacity of 400 people and interest has been huge! We recommend people get there slightly early.
