OIA Docs for Thompson and Clark MBIE Relationship

Publication - March 16, 2018
Multitudes of documents received under the Official Information Act reveal that the Ministry for Business, Innovation & Employment (MBIE) has had a close relationship with TCIL for more than four years, and has worked with them to protect the oil industry and counteract the advocacy work of environmental groups like Greenpeace.

These documents and emails are a fraction of the full picture - MBIE declined a number of requests for certain correspondence with TCIL on the grounds that over 2,000 documents exist.
