A mural of eco-activist Greta Thunberg was defaced in Edmonton, Alberta, with the vandal telling Thunberg to stop lecturing him on how to live his life.

However, it lasted just a few days before being defaced by a vandal who spray painted over it the words, “Stop the lies: This is oil country.”

“My father has worked in the oil industry. We don’t need foreigners coming in and telling us how to run our business, support our families, put food on our tables,” the culprit told a CBC journalist.
“It is absolutely intolerant of them [climate activists] to tell us how to change our lives and our people. She should go back to her country and try to make her country better,” he added.
Another slur in French was added to the mural later that day.

Thunberg has repeatedly lectured Canadians to lower their standard of living while saying next to nothing about China, the biggest polluter on the planet.
As we previously highlighted, German drivers began displaying ‘f*ck you Greta’ bumper stickers to protest against being lectured about global warming by a 16-year-old child.
