Nevermind The Frame...$500K Is $500K


Great bit of investigative digging by Alexis Stoymenoff in the Vancouver Observer wherein she used American tax returns to determine that the Koch Brothers gave $500,000 to the Fraser Institute over the last few years. 



I don't give a crap about all these false frames that have been put around things like 'lobbying', 'political activism', 'research', 'education'  by the projectionists recently.

Because the important thing here is that a group of Americans is backing the Fraser Institute, which acts to move public opinion in Canada on a whole lotta levels, with big money.

And that information is all that really matters.

Everyone knows the FI is the whore of big business and privatization. Not surprised at all. Now wait till they start beaking off about environmentalists getting foreign funding and let the proverbial you know what hit the fan!

Much of their remaining funding comes from the Canadian divisions of foreign controlled corporations.
