As a test, a representative of EthicalOil.org, the Canadian NGO I founded, contacted Leggett’s staff to see if a pro-oilsands supporter could register late, too.
No way, was the answer.
If you’re an anti-Canadian activist from Alaska or New York or Brazil, Leggett will let you jam up the hearings. Even if you register after the rules say registrations are closed.
But if you’re a Canadian citizen who supports the oilsands, Leggett will slam the door in your face.
It’s bad enough that Leggett has allowed foreign moneyed interests to hijack her panel. But by having two sets of rules for who can register — one standard for foreign meddlers, and a stricter standard for Canadian patriots — Leggett shows not only incompetence, but bias, too.
