West Coast Environmental Law Foundation

Paid by billionaires on the American west coast — and New York — to fight oil exports from Canada. A hundred thousand dollars from America’s Rockefeller Brothers Fund to “prevent the development of a pipeline and tanker port” for our coast? Nearly $100,000 from Seattle’s Wilburforce Foundation to protect our country from oil tankers? Tell them to butt out!
