Paul Joosse, a sociologist at the University of Alberta who studies radical environmental action and has visited Trickle Creek, said it was his understanding Ludwig was going to meet with "somebody named Insp.
"This was not unusual," said Joosse. "He had had several meetings with people from INSET and the RCMP during the course of the 15-month investigation." Joosse also said INSET approached Ludwig in the summer - the last bombing was on July 4 - to help them profile the bomber. Reports in the past said Ludwig approached INSET. According to Joosse, Ludwig offered to go into the Tomslake community on behalf of the RCMP but police officials in Ottawa insisted he be accompanied in some way by officers. "He wanted to go into the community and talk to whoever might be involved and try and address the breakdown in relationship between industry and community members in the Tomslake area," said Joosse. "But he didn't want INSET to shadow him as he did this." The breakdown, said Joosse, prompted Ludwig to write an open letter appealing to the bomber to stop their campaign. "He was figuring if I can't work with the RCMP on this goal of calming things down, then I'll write a leter to the local media," said Joosse. "Since then, he's had other meetings with INSET, that I do know, and so this meeting Friday wouldn't have seemed unusual at all." Joosse wondered on Tuesday, in light of Friday's arrest, that "perhaps through the whole series of these meetings were being disingenuous about their true motive for talking to Wiebo Ludwig. He added that, according to reports, the police compared Ludwig to jailed anti-apartheid activist Nelson Mandela - while also suggesting they had DNA evidence linking the eco-activist to the Tomslake bombings. "If they did have DNA evidence linking Ludwig to these lettesr, one would think that would be sufficient to lay a charge," said Joosse.

Eco-terrorism expert Paul Joose, who teaches at the University of Alberta, says the charge of extortion makes clear there is a bigger mystery behind the investigation and Ludwig's role. "He wants a peaceful solution, the police wanted his insights," said Joose.

Paul Joosse, a University of Alberta sociological researcher, said Ludwig may well be remembered as a sort of Old Testament prophet but his combination of radical faith and environmentalism is anything but old fashioned.
Joosse first met Ludwig in 2008 after investigating the Tomslake-area bombings for a chapter in his dissertation. Ludwig was a polarizing figure in the area, but Joosse discovered in the bearded patriarch a hospitable, "dialectic thinker" who shared his table and peppered his speech with biblical allusions.
"Many people see him as a retrograde figure, a fundamentalist," said Joosse. "You could also cast him as being at the vanguard. I do think there's going to be an increasing tendency for environmental concerns to be married to religious perspective."
At the time, Joosse had recently been invited for another trip to Trickle Creek. When he last phoned, Ludwig was no longer taking visitors. Recently learning Ludwig had built his own coffin and was preparing to die, it's a decision Joosse regrets.
Joosse recalled his final conversation with the blue-eyed leader, who pointed him to Isaiah 24, which speaks of how the "earth dries up and withers," and a people who have "broken the everlasting covenant."
"The whole thing about bombings, that's just the tip of the iceberg," Joosse said.

University of Alberta sociology researcher Paul Joosse, who has studied radical environmentalists, agrees with the police that the attacker is probably a local resident rather than part of a larger outside group.
