Environmentalist saboteurs tampered with an Enbridge pipeline valve in Southwestern Ontario over the weekend.
That’s how normal Canadians describe the kind of people who damage property in hopes to cause even greater damage. We call them saboteurs, or vandals.
I wouldn’t call them activists. Activists, even the ones I disagree with, are not vandals.
Activists are organizers, peaceful protesters, and advocates for change. I'm an activist and you might be one, too.
But the folks at the CBC call eco-vandals and saboteurs "activists". They've even made it a habit of calling eco-terrorist Weibo Ludwig an activist. He was convicted in 2000 of a series of bombings of oil and gas infrastructure in Northern Alberta and BC during the 1990s and served a mere 19 months in jail. To the CBC, this paralyzing reign of terror was activism.
In contrast, CBC repeatedly refers to the so far non-violent protest in an Oregon bird sanctuary by farmers and ranchers against government overreach as a militia occupation and a stand-off. Aren't they just activists too? Or do they have to wreck someone else's stuff before they get that fluffy designation from the CBC?
How does an Oregon militiaman turn into an activist? Damage a pipeline, I guess.

The CBC actively campaigns for Justin Trudeau and the Liberals, so why should we subsidize them?
