Greenpeace paying $70K salary for campaigner to “scandalize” fossil fuel industry

Since January, environmental activists have been protesting and setting up blockades across the country in support of the Wet’suwet’en chiefs.

Greenpeace Canada is offering a $70,000 salary for a full-time campaigner to “scandalize” Canada’s fossil fuel industry. 

“Greenpeace Canada (GPCA) is seeking a Campaign Head to provide leadership in the development and implementation of our campaigns to fight climate change and scandalize the fossil fuel industry in Canada,” reads the job description.

The job requires candidates to be willing to travel globally and lists the position’s locations as Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, or “within Canada.” 

“You will work with colleagues in Canada and around the world and some international travel may be necessary,” says the ad. 

While the job description doesn’t say anything about whether the candidate is required to be a Canadian citizen, it does require that they be “legally entitled to work in Canada.” 

This is not the first lucrative environmental job advertisement to pop up in the last few weeks.

As reported exclusively by True North, American-based company Stand.earth is hiring a “senior oil and gas campaigner” to stop BC’s LNG pipeline. 

“Stand.earth is seeking a passionate and experienced campaigner to develop and implement strategies to raise awareness and build power to stop the expansion of the oil and gas sector,” read the job posting.

The full-time position offered to pay the successful applicant a salary ranging between $70,000 and $85,000.

Both jobs are being advertised in the midst of a national crisis centred on the opposition of a small number of hereditary Wet’suwet’en chiefs to the BC LNG pipeline. 

Since January, environmental activists have been protesting and setting up blockades across the country in support of the Wet’suwet’en chiefs. 

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
