A new study suggests Western Canada’s resource industry will be targeted by more domestic terrorists.

The report by Tom Flanagan for the Canadian Defence and Foreign Affairs Institute says there will be more violence, sabotage and blockades by people who see the oilsands and pipelines as a threat to the environment and/or aboriginal rights.

The report adds actions against the industry likely will be isolated, unco-ordinated and continue to cause only nuisance damage.

The University of Calgary political science professor, says his study focused mainly on northern Alberta, but his findings also apply to parts of British Columbia and Saskatchewan.

The report’s release comes as the RCMP continues its investigation into a ten month series of bombings that have targeted EnCana’s natural gas operations southeast of Dawson Creek.
