There was a time when being a charity meant doing something real, something tangible.
Operating a soup kitchen.
Providing medical help to those in need overseas.
Helping orphans here in Canada.
Providing valuable goods or services.
Thats real charity work.
Now it appears that hyper-political lobbying can count as charitable work too.

The green fundamentalists are perhaps just the most vocal example of this phenomenon.
Theres no shortage of radical greens getting generous tax breaks from the federal government.
Were seeing it now with the Northern Gateway hearings.

Personally, they appear to be spending an awful amount of their time shouting, lobbying, obstructing
To be clear, the radical greens arent the only ones engaged in hyper-political lobbying.
