Thanks to the research done by a member of Facebook, we discovered today that Tony Clements is the man behind EthicalOil.
Tony Clements already is known for his highly unethical abuse of office, previously he was the man behind the G8 slush fund and now he is the man behind UnethicalOil.
In Sept 2011 the New Democrats requested the G8 documents be handed over to the RCMP and the House of Commons ethics committee for investigation regarding a breach of internal rules. Clearly now the RCMP should also investigate Tony Clement in regards to his personal role in EthicalOil and this abuse of office.
A bit of background on Ezra Levant the author of a book called Ethical Oil
“In 2001, Levant returned to Calgary to practice law. By February 2002 he had won the Canadian Alliance party nomination for the riding of Calgary Southwest, but stepped aside after public pressure so that new party leader Stephen Harper could run there in a 2002 by-election. When the by-election was called, Levant, who said he spent over $150,000 to gain the nomination, announced on March 28 that he would not step aside. Later that night, however, he relented after widespread pressure from the party and accusations that he was putting himself ahead of the party.”
“Also in 2011, Alykhan Velshi, a former staffer for Minister of Immigration Jason Kenney, founded a website to promote the ideas put forward by Ezra Levant in his book. The website, EthicalOil.org, launched a campaign to compare Canada’s ‘Ethical Oil’ against OPEC’s ‘Conflict Oil’ and features controversial advertisements comparing conditions for women, gays and other minorities in OPEC countries to those in Canada. EthicalOil.org has staged counter-protests in response to opposition to the Keystone XL pipeline project. After setting up the ethicaloil.org website, Velshi has returned to Parliament Hill in late 2011, in the position of Director of Planning for the Prime Minister’s Office.”
The above shows it is very obvious the PMO’s office is being influenced not by ethical policy but unethical backroom payoffs.
Now getting back to Tony Clement, for those of you who are interested in evidence link him directly to EthicalOil see the following links and screen captures.
Note that Tony Clement’s Campain Office and EthicalOil share the same postal address for receiving funds to run this website. Yet they claim it is a website run out of Alberta. Look at this claim made on their webpage, which now shows they are clearly a group of liars, along with Tony Clement.
“We are a registered non-profit NGO and do not accept money from any government agency. We are non-partisan and believe that the Canadian values reflected in Ethical Oil appeal to people from all walks of life and across the political spectrum.”
EthicalOil in a recent interview on refused to disclose if they are receiving funding directly or indirectly from Enbridge to promote the pipeline.
