Alberta Tarsands: Messages and Bitch '.

alberta tarsands: There were messages that called me a c ' or bitch'. Some messages suggested I should have posted naked and others commented on my appearance.I'm not new to being trolled.I'm a public figure with a national organization calling for an end to the expansion of extreme energy including pipelines expanding the Alberta tarsands or oilsands, and for a just transition to a clean economy, according to National Observer. In our four-year fight against Trans Canada's Energy East pipeline, I dedicated a lot of time to myth-busting. There were messages that called for my beheading and for a bat to be taken to my face. I did this because I believe the project would have violated Indigenous rights, made a mockery of our role with the Paris Climate Agreement and put the drinking water of over 5 million people at risk from an oilsands spill. I helped organize public forums, participate in government consultations, write reports, op-eds, government submissions, factsheets, blogs and press releases all providing facts countering Trans Canada's claims. We were up against Goliath, a corporation that spent over a billion dollars on the recently terminated pipeline project from Alberta to a new port in Saint John, New Brunswick.
