Five months after saying the exploitation of the tar sands was "one of the most serious threats to the human race," former U.S. vice-president Al Gore came back to Montreal this week with financial backing from Investors Group, a Power Corporation affiliate that is indirectly involved in Alberta's oil industry.

The man behind the documentary An Inconvenient Truth will participate Thursday in an international conference organized during the 2010 Millennium Summit.


Hello kettle, pot calling. In Gore's defense he may not have been aware of this, but doesn't really matter. The outspoken critic of the oil industry should be doing his homework to determine who investors are. He's very quick to undermine Canada and specifically the tar sands for producing part of the climate threat. But he's much quicker when it comes to lining his pocket.
