An Alberta government report into environmental activist groups found that foreign donors have poured $1.3 billion into Canada to fight oil and gas development. The Canadian Energy News Network strives to tout the sector’s positive and counter the negatives from those well-funded activists.

Cody Ciona from the Canadian Energy News Network joined The Andrew Lawton Show to discuss some of the bigger picture challenges the sector is facing, but why he’s optimistic about the year ahead.

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.
