Lloydminster Oilfield Technical Society to present Vivian Krause

A writer and researcher, known for revealing funding sources behind anti-oil activists, is coming to the Border City. The Lloydminster Oilfield Technical Society is bringing Vivian Krause to the Vic Juba Community Theatre to share some of her work tracking the money behind anti-oilsands campaigns.

Krause is known for having researched documents like tax returns and following the money behind anti-oil and anti-pipeline activism in Canada. Her work shows that foundations like the Tides Foundation, the Rockefeller Foundation and other charitable foundations are providing funds to domestic environmental activists. Krause alleges these organizations funnel money into activists to landlock Canadian oil.

Krause is giving a presentation on her findings across the country and will be in Lloydminster on Thursday, March 28. It features a slideshow presentation with facts and figures showing where the money is coming from. Mayor Gerald Aalbers has seen the presentation himself in November and says it’s very informative. He says it invoked feelings of frustration and anger to know that foreign money is funding anti-oil activism.

“It really showcases to people where the money is coming from, and it’s not Canadian money. It’s coming offshore or south of the border, and I think it will help explain to a lot of people,” says Aalbers.

Marc Ouellette helped organize the event alongside the Lloydminster Oilfield Technical Society. He reached out to Krause and says she’s excited to come present in Lloydminster. Ouellette is looking forward to the presentation and thinks it’s important for anyone who wants to know more about the industry.

“It’s very important that we understand all the aspects of what’s going on behind the scene, everything they don’t show on television and what the government doesn’t talk about,” says Ouellette. The event opens its doors at 6:30 p.m. and starts at 7. Tickets can be purchased online or at the Vic Juba’s box office.
