Ecoterrorists step up attacks on North American energy

“There is a ‘growing radicalized environmentalist faction’ in Canada that is opposed to the country’s energy sector policies,” the Royal Canadian Mounted Police report.

“The RCMP criminal intelligence assessment, focusing on Canadian waters, cites potential dangers from environmental activists to offshore oil platforms and hazardous marine shipments, representing perhaps the starkest assessment of such threats by the Canadian security community to date,” CBC reports.

“The Canadian law enforcement and security intelligence community have noted a growing radicalized environmentalist faction within Canadian society that is opposed to Canada’s energy sector policies,” says the RCMP report.

“Tactics employed by activist groups are intended to intimidate and have the potential to escalate to violence.”
