This is the most breathtaking hypocrisy on the part of Shell and Mr. Crothers.

Shell is responsible for nightmarish pollution of the Niger Delta in Nigeria. It has already settled related litigation and more is underway:

Previous to becoming President of Shell Canada, Mr. Crothers was Chief Executive of Shell Ireland where he became mired in a major corruption scandal.

With its legacy of leaving toxic pollution in its wake and promoting widespread corruption in Ireland and Nigeria, it is ludicrous for Shell to talk about Canada sticking to its values.
