Researcher in anti-industry activism coming to P.G.
One of the leading voices in digging beneath anti-industry lobby groups is coming to Prince George. A grassroots pro-industry group called The North Matters is bringing Vivian Krause to a number of northern communities to hear directly from her on what she has uncovered in her investigations.
Calling herself an “independent researcher” and having publication experience in such media as The Financial Post and her blog entitled Fair Questions, Krause says she delved into the financial records of groups that oppose natural resource development and traced their funding to dubiously international sources, some of them surprising.
“Her carefully documented research on the funding network of foundations, and their influence on Canadian anti-resource groups has become widely known and highly valued by interested citizens of every stripe from coast to coast to coast,” said Dave Johnston of The North Matters.
The Prince George engagement with Krause happens Thursday at 6:30 p.m. at the Marriott Hotel.
“Independent, self-directed, focused and articulate Vancouver-based researcher and writer Vivian Krause has made a real difference in the contentious, slanted campaigns against the largest contributors to our country’s economy – by shining a spotlight on the finances and structures behind many activist groups,” Johnston said.
