Tides is not the only organization involved in the anti-oilsands efforts, but it rivals the Rockefeller Brothers Fund as the best known. This paper profiles the 51 Canadian organizations that the Tides Foundation gave USD $20,000 or more in 2016.

Changes to law and policy to prevent this international interference are worth consideration. In the meantime, Canada keeps losing.
