Journalism check: today @Tommy_Slick asked the Energy Minister to point to the “misinformation.” She could not. Instead she said: “to find whether something is a misrepresentation or a fact would require a very very significant amount of work.”
Foreign-funded misinformation campaigns to landlock Alberta's resources caused untold hardship for thousands of energy workers & their families. Today, we released a report that shines a light on these coordinated efforts to harm our province. Read more: alberta.ca/release.cfm?xID=8…

A Black University of Alberta professor says he experienced racial profiling when he entered an Edmonton RONA and was asked to leave his tote bag at the counter. @sarahsinthenews tries walking into RONA with her own tote bag to see if they apply their policy to all customers.

1/2 Alberta's long-awaited "Allan report" into the funders of oil and gas critics is released today. It found no wrongdoing by environmental groups. The report was twice delayed and $1 million over budget ($3.5 million total). @citynewscalgary

The first line of the report's overview cites "a decade-long campaign of misinformation." Energy Minister Sonya Savage was not able to point reporters to the misinformation. @citynewscalgary

Instead, we read figures in the report that appear big, but are not directly tied to oil and gas. For example, $925 million in foreign funding for "environmental issues," though the author later admits it's not possible to determine how much of that went to Anti-Alberta energy.

A lawyer who has won big cases for religious freedoms at the Supreme Court says those arguing for religious exemptions to COVID-19 vaccine mandates will likely lose. Despite this, organizations are allowing people to apply for an exemption. @StefanieLasuik reports. #COVID19AB

Sabear, 30, says he believed false info he saw on social media. “That's why I never got the vaccine. I was scared.” Then he landed in the ICU w/ COVID-19. “I want to tell people that having COVID is probably the scariest thing you'll go through. It's not a joke. Get the vaccine.”
