RCMP [Royal Canadian Mounted Police] bombed oil site in ‘dirty tricks’ campaign

RCMP [Royal Canadian Mounted Police] bombed oil site in ‘dirty tricks’ campaign by CBC News, November 10, 2000
The Mounties bombed an oil installation as part of a dirty tricks campaign in their investigation into sabotage in the Alberta’s oil patch. The revelation came at the bail hearing Thursday of two farmers who the Crown says have turned their complaints that oil industry pollution is making their families ill into acts of vandalism and mischief. Their lawyer produced evidence that the RCMP bombed a wellsite and that they did it with the full support of the energy company [now Encana] that owned it. The Crown admits the allegations are true. … Lawyer Richard Secord told Court of Queen’s Bench that when Alberta Energy Co. [AEC, now Encana] and police blew up an AEC shed last Oct. 14, they blamed it on his client, farmer Wiebo Ludwig.
