A Canadian charitable foundation at the centre of Conservative Party accusations of foreign influence in the nation's economic affairs defended itself before a Senate Committee in Ottawa Thursday.

Two executives from Tides Canada appeared before the Senate energy, environment and natural resources committee as part of the committee's ongoing study into the future of Canada's energy sector.

"Issues like climate change and air and water pollution don't stop at borders. And so clearly there is an international interest in those issues and that's why we attract international money," said Merran Smith, Tides' Energy Initiative director, in response to a question from Conservative Yukon Senator Daniel Lang.

Conservative Senator Doug Finley took issue with Tides Canada in his remarks Tuesday as part of the Senate's inquiry into foreign foundations providing money to Canadian charities. Finley said groups like the World Wildlife Fund and Greenpeace have used tht money to fund their "tarsands campaigns" and are harming Canada's economic interests.
