Does ‘Environmental Extremism’ Threaten Canadian Energy?

The Toronto Globe and Mail reports that “RCMP analysts have warned government and industry that environmental extremists pose a “clear and present criminal threat” to Canada’s energy sector, and are more likely to strike at critical infrastructure than religiously inspired terrorists, according to a report released under Access to Information.”  

“Written by the force’s critical infrastructure intelligence team, the 22-page RCMP document argues there is a ‘growing criminal phenomenon’ associated with environmentalism that aims to interfere with regulatory reviews and force companies to forego development.”
