Stop funding pipeline protesters while denying funding to real charities
Justin Trudeau’s Liberal Government imposed an ideological values test on the Canada Summer Jobs program, preventing Canadians from applying and discriminating against them strictly on the basis of their privately held convictions.
Those applying had to check that they agree with certain Liberal values in order get approved.
Meanwhile, it’s just been revealed that the Canada Summer Jobs program is being used to fund a summer job where the core mandate is “to help stop the Kinder Morgan pipeline.”
Dogwood B.C. advertised a job for an Organizing Assistant, noting that the position is funded by the Canada Summer Jobs Program.
According to the posted job description, the organizing assistant “will work directly with a Dogwood Provincial Organizer and the field organizing team to help our organizing network stop the Kinder Morgan pipeline and tanker project.”
The Government of Canada is paying summer students to engage in political activism against economic development, while cutting the legs out from under charitable organizations who don’t agree with them – even if the work of those charitable organizations has nothing to do with politics.
The $223 million dollar Canada Summer Jobs program should not be an ideological weapon of any current government.
