Five months after saying the exploitation of the tar sands was "one of the most serious threats to the human race,” former U.S. vice-president Al Gore came back to Montreal this week with financial backing from Investors Group, a Power Corporation affiliate that is indirectly involved in Alberta's oil industry
Note the "indirect" connection, I will bold it for you-
The event's main sponsor is Investors Group, a Power Corp. company owned by the Desmarais family. The Desmarais family and their Belgian partner, Albert Frere, are the largest shareholders in oil company Total, which hopes to take three billion barrels of oil from the Alberta tar sands (and maybe more) over the next 30 years
Hmmm, that reads to me like the company, financially backing
Al Gore's visit, is DIRECTLY involved in the Tar Sands Project.
A project Al Gore condemned as a "serious threat to mankind"
How does anyone take this man and his views seriously?
