Michelle Narang cried when she first saw a sticker of what appears to be a cartoon of Greta Thunberg being sexually assaulted and the name of an oilfield company printed boldly across the bottom of the decal.

Narang, who lives in Rocky Mountain House in west-central Alberta, is a proud supporter of Canadian energy. Her relatives earn a living in the oil industry, which also supports the non-profit she works for. She calls the investment that oil and gas companies make in communities, like her town, “beautiful.”

“This is an industry Alberta is fighting for so desperately. This sticker is not something Alberta or Albertans need,” Narang told HuffPost Canada in an interview Thursday.

Narang decided she couldn’t stay silent. As someone who knows survivors of sexual assault, she never wants her 13-year-old son to see the sticker, or be OK with violence against women. So, she posted the image to Facebook as a way to call it out: “This company represents everything that the O&G industry needs to fight against.”

“Silence never creates change,” Narang said. “It’s sad to me (the sticker) went through a supply chain of people, who thought about it, printed it and distributed it. It blows my mind anyone would think it’s funny.”

A friend who works in the oil industry sent an image of the sticker to Narang. He spoke to HuffPost Canada on a condition of anonymity, fearing repercussions at his job. The sticker, reading “X-Site Energy Services,” was handed out recently as promotional material at job sites to be worn on hardhats, he said.

  David Staples: Teck Frontier dead but Conservatives trying to turn the page on oilsands rhetoric The demise of the $20 billion Teck Frontier oilsands project was a blow to business and workers, but Teck’s cancellation coincided with a cosmic slap in the face to radicals and climate alarmists. Just as David Suzuki and friends were whooping it up and lecturing us about how Frontier’s failure made perfect sense because the world is moving away from fossil fuels, a news report came out of Russia about plans to develop the $157-billion Vostok Oil project in the Arctic. Frontier would have been the biggest oilsands mine in Canadian history. The Vostok project is eight times bigger.

Although the actual stickers weren’t distributed at his workplace, he said the graphic image was circulating among his colleagues on Wednesday. He said his company was asked if it would be interested in a similar sticker.

“It was completely disgusting and wrong,” he said.

Narang said she called the general manager of X-Site, Doug Sparrow, asking him if he knew about the sticker that appears to depict the rape of a minor. He said he was aware of it, according to Narang, and his response was, “She’s not a child, she’s 17.”

Under the Criminal Code, child pornography is any visual representation of a person under the age of 18 engaged or depicted to be engaged in a sexual activity.

Sparrow did not respond to HuffPost’s repeated requests for comment, but he told City News Edmonton Thursday that neither X-Site, nor any X-Site employee, was involved in making the sticker.

“Someone has done this. That’s all I know,” Sparrow said.

Velocity, a printing company in Red Deer, has been accused of printing the stickers. A representative told HuffPost that while X-Site was a previous client, its work history shows Velocity did not print this order.

Thunberg, a Swedish activist, has become a symbol for climate change action, as the world faces significant global warming and only 10 years to curb catastrophe, according to the United Nations and other experts.

At the same time, the Alberta oil industry is facing increasing pressure from other provinces and environmentalists to cut carbon emissions and transition to green energy.

Just this week, Teck Resources backed out of a $20-billion Alberta oilsands mining project, blaming Canada’s unclear climate change policy. Across the country, Indigenous protesters have blocked major railways in solidarity with Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs who oppose a natural gas pipeline in B.C.

Greta Thunberg Responds To Graphic Sticker Linked To Alberta Oil Company

  Greta Thunberg Responds To Graphic Sticker Linked To Alberta Oil Company Greta Thunberg has seen the disgusting sticker linked to an Alberta oilfield company that appears to depict the climate activist being sexually assaulted. While many Canadians were outraged on her behalf, the 17-year-old climate activist has managed to find a positive way to look at it. “They are starting to get more and more desperate…” she tweeted on Saturday. “This shows that we’re winning.” They are starting to get more and more desperate …” she tweeted on Saturday. “This shows that we’re winning.”They are starting ...This shows that we’re winning. https://t.

Highlighting the national discord, four Alberta Conservative MPs released a document called the “Buffalo Declaration,” calling for “equality” and a louder voice for Alberta at the federal table.

Narang emphasized the sticker is not representative of her community and does not want it to be used as fodder by the “anti-oil, anti-Alberta side.”

“I really want Eastern Canada to understand this (sticker) is the craziest thing possible,” Narang said. “There’s way more good news stories and we love our environment.”
