CPPIB’s fracking operation in U.S. raises questions

State records show the company made US$607,250 in political donations to several Colorado political action committees in 2018 that supported Republican or “pro-business” candidates.

Nearly half, US$300,000, went to the pro-Republican Senate Majority Fund, while US$200,000 went to Better Colorado Now, in support of Republican gubernatorial candidate Walker Stapleton, a member of the Bush political dynasty. Crestone gave US$100,000 to Protect Colorado, which said it opposed "any ban or restriction on hydraulic fracturing.”
