Rumours surrounding the death of Ethical Oil, arguably Canada’s most vocal and controversial pro-oilsands lobbying group, are greatly exaggerated, says movement founder and Sun Media personality Ezra Levant.
Murmurs that Levant’s brainchild [Ethical Oil] was shutting down have been swirling on social media and in online forums since early September, when the group’s Twitter account, blog and Facebook page ceased being active.
However, the hiatus appears to be temporary. Levant says the website is currently being redesigned and the group will be launching a “grassroots recruitment project in the new year,” which he hopes will become active in January 2013.
Its always good to have hope. But, with Joe Oliver abandoning EO-style rhetoric as counter-productive, its hard to know what possible use these guys might be.
PS. I'd like to think I help spread some of those rumors.
