The Intercept reveals how a Canadian fossil fuel company essentially bought a unit of an Oregon sheriff’s department in order to monitor opposition to its proposed liquid natural gas pipeline and export terminal. The investigation reveals how Pembina Pipeline Corp., the owner of the planned Jordan Cove project, was the sole funder of the unit of the Coos County Sheriff’s Office in Oregon that has spent years surveilling opposition to the project’s construction in southern Oregon. Last year, staff of the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission said the Jordan Cove project would adversely affect at least 18 threatened and endangered species in and around Coos Bay.
