Audio: Damien Gillis on Enbridge ‘Jobs’ Myth, Harper Working with Oil Lobby, Pipeline Politics


Listen to this half-hour interview of Damien Gillis on Opposition Radio, an Ontario-based online radio program. Hosts Mike and Tony discuss with Damien the recent revelation that the Harper Goverment has been working with the oil lobby on a coordinated PR strategy to promote the Alberta Tar Sands. The three also delve into recent pipeline politics in BC and the “jobs” myth around the proposed Enbridge pipeline, discussing a recent story by Damien on the drive to import American and Chinese labour to build the pipeline and expand Tar Sands operations, and how that flies in the face of the Harper Government’s contention these developments are good for the Canadian economy.
