"One has to spend a lot of money and repeat for a long time to make a dent in public opinion," he adds
In other words tell the same lie often enough, then repeat, then it will be believable ?????

Big oil buys a government!

Goebbels said it. Harper is just applying the principle.

"But the industry doesn't feel that way at all.
" 'We need all the help we can get.' "

Poor little rich kids, billions in oil profits but they need all the help they can get because they're so misunderstood. Thank goodness our government is there with an extra $5 million to try to clean up their tar-soaked image.

There has to be some legal sanction for the government spending taxpayer money on obvious propaganda lies.

The Harper government has no interest in truth. It is interested in power and it will do anything it can to maintain it. It makes China seem honest and upright. At least China is leading in green energy. The Harper(TM) government is trying to destroy clean energy and take us back to the nineteenth century. Women will be barefoot and in the kitchen and people will work for room and board.

"It's almost Orwellian." Yes, (to anyone not susceptible to Orwellian spin anyway) that's been obvious for years. "But the industry doesn't feel that way... We need all the help we can get." So, let me see if I have this right: on top of various tax related incentives, write-offs and deductions, Big Oil now believes it is entitled to plunder the national treasury through taxpayer-funded government ads promoting itself and its agenda. Maybe it's the Canadian public who need all the help they can get -- protecting themselves from Orwellian spin-meisters.

They are trying to sell their environmental record as a good thing? This is beyond brazen.

The lying is nothing new. The propaganda bill is breakthrough. But the subject matter is what pushes this into the realm of science-fiction fantasy.

Hey, Harper embraces science! Read all about it. You've already paid for it.

"They are trying to sell their environmental record as a good thing?"- Orwellian Doublethink.

Does Harper keeps a copy of 1984 under his pillow?..Orwell must be rolling over in his grave..

Doesn't the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers have enough propaganda out already?!? Now they need our tax dollars to help bolster their message??

"It will be important in this environment to increase public awareness and understanding of the Government's balanced approach to energy policy," -- The propaganda has already begun and anyone who thinks this government has had a "balanced" approach to energy is already a blind Harper supporter.

All Canadians have to remember is that pretty pictures don’t make it so. Harper is willing to waste our money trying to convince us that saying is the same as doing. And fish will die and so will fresh air and us.

This is Harperian evil of a mendacious machiavellian kind, a cynical kind of fug u finger in the eye. If this is what appears on the outer oily glimmerings of this pongy cess pool of a party, what lies beneath, pun intended, what toxic horrors of turpitude and triangulation, what machinations of evil conspiracy operate behind those publicly owned cabinet doors? It's a heavy metal band of BAAAHD brothers.

The tory party should be sued to force it to restore public money expended on its propaganda.

what a week, they spend the first half telling us how we can't balance the budget, and the second half spending money we don't have, about how good they are doing.
news flash: if you were truly doing good for the environment, you wouldn't have to sell us the b.s.
