Ralph Klein is not amused with Greenpeace

From its humble beginnings in Vancouver, Greenpeace has grown into the world's leading environmental action watchdog. For more than 30 years Greenpeace has battled whaling, nuclear testing and sealing, all in an attempt to protect the planet. But some say their tactics, such as confronting politicians at their private residences, go too far. Are Greenpeace a bunch of misguided liberal intellectuals and publicity-prone protestors? Or are they modern-day eco-heroes?
