Setting the record straight on the day’s top anti-oil and gas media stories

ACTIVIST CLAIM: Foreign funded stand.earth accuses RBC of perpetuating climate destruction and violating indigenous rights after RBC teams up with Zoological Society of London.

THE FACTS: Foreign funded Stand.earth will use any excuse to attack the oil and gas industry and speak for Indigenous communities, many of which are partners in natural resource development.

THE SOURCES:

Stand.earth on Twitter: “Classic @RBC greenwashing: touting one-off actions, while failing to mention its bankrolling #CoastalGasLink — *currently* violating Indigenous rights while perpetuating climate destruction.” / Twitter


Here’s some facts and sources to have a reasoned conversation about respecting Indigenous communities:

  • Activists fail to highlight that 100% of elected First Nation councils support the project and have signed benefits agreements for their communities, and these elected officials deserve dignity and respect. It is not the place of activist groups or industry to comment on the internal decisions made within an independent community, but to accept that they are capable of making responsible business decisions without interference or judgment.
