A radical climate activist group threw paint onto Canadian icon Tom Thomson’s Northern River painting at the National Gallery of Canada. 

Climate cultist desecrates treasured Canadian painting

The climate cultist group On2Ottawa proudly posted to social media after Tuesday’s stunt.

“Supporter Kaleb throws pink paint at Tom Thomson’s Northern River and glues himself to the ground,” the group stated on Instagram.

“What’s more damaging? A bit of washable paint on an artwork or the fires that are ravaging Canada?”

The climate activist proceeded to glue his hand to the floor and read a political statement.

“Fossil fuel industries are destroying our planet,” he said.

In posting about the incident, the On2Ottawa group also called for donations and listed future online meeting times where similar-minded individuals can deliberate on further climate-related activism. 

The group is demanding the federal government create a national firefighting agency comprising of 50,000 members to combat forest fires in Canada.

Social media onlookers responded mostly with criticism of the stunt. 

“I’m all for climate action but don’t think this is the right approach. You need more people onboard and this is going to polarize people against you,” said one Instagram user.

“This accomplishes nothing. You’re just disrupting people trying to find peace and learn about art and vandalizing important Canadian artworks,” wrote another.

Contrasting records 

Amid a record-breaking wildfire season that has consumed over 15 million hectares of land this year, climate cultists have exploited what appears to be an anomalous year.

2020 was also a record-breaking year in Canada, but for the opposite reason. Just three years ago, Canada had the fewest forest fires in its 41-year history of tracking them — and this includes the fewest amount of hectares burned.   

Learning from Canada’s top Climate Cultist 

It’s possible the individual was inspired by Canada’s Climate Change Minister, who is no stranger to radical acts of climate alarmism himself.

In 2001, Minister Stephen Guilbeault was charged for scaling the CN Tower, where on behalf of Greenpeace, he put up a poster that read “Canada and Bush Climate Killers.”

The next year, Guilbeault trespassed onto then-Premier of Alberta Ralph Klein’s property and installed solar panels on his roof.
