www.cbc.ca

In 2000, Ludwig was found guilty on five charges related to bombings and vandalism of oil and gas wells in northwestern Alberta. He served two-thirds of a 28-month prison sentence before he was released in 2001.

In January 2010, hundreds of RCMP officers searched his 325-hectare farm in Hythe ,Alta., looking for evidence related to six Encana gas pipeline bombings in B.C. between October 2008 and July 2009.

He was a vigilante who fervently believed his family was being poisoned by the gas wells and then of course he was subjected to ridicule instead of a real convincing investigation to prove or disprove that his family was/was not being poisoned. I don't like the methods he supposedly used, but he really seemed to be alone in his fight--at least from my eastern vantage point.
