Are e-petitions proving “silent majority” in BC support Transmountain expansion?

Does the silent majority really exist in BC, and are they actually in favour of resource industry projects like pipelines?

I often wonder if the several hundred or even thousands of protesters at anti-pipeline events reflect true Canadians – or if the real Canadians are at home with their families, or are too busy working.

We’ve shown before how foreign funded groups are behind a lot of the environmental groups in Canada and Ezra has exposed the ‘professional protesters’ who show up to all the protests as though it’s their job.

I’m not convinced of the truth of claims by environmental groups and activists that the majority of British Columbians and Vancouverites are against the Transmountain Pipeline expansion and am concerned that these claims and protests give the wrong impression to the media and the public.

Watch as I provide some proof that the numbers are skewed and even tip my hat to this new government for changes they’ve made to e-petition rules which may be proving me right.

Now that you’ve seen how lefty activists have tried and failed miserably, remember this the next time you see the thousand or so marching to save the climate or stop a pipeline, and ask yourself whether it’s the same relatively small group of radicals at work.

It probably is and their numbers pale in comparison to the 35,000 proud Canadians who support our world class oil and gas industry, recognizing the importance it plays in our economic prospects.

As far as I can tell, the silent majority is on our side.

Speaking of silent majorities, the polls just closed in the Medicine hat By election – PCs took it with 70% of the popular vote – NDP placed a distant 4th with 1.3% of the vote – there was no Wild Rose Candidate in the race. The silent majority has just told the NDP what to expect in the general.

Take note Tory vote spliters – take note Notley – it’s coming and it won’t be pretty.

Just look at their hand held signs & banners, nothing handmade here. Working people cannot afford or have the time to turn up at every whim protest of the day.
These protesters are paid by the likes of George Soros & others, many of whom have made their fortune from the oil industry. It’s always very hypocritical with many of them clueless about it all & just relying on the lies they’re told.

These petitions are being read in Parliament but they are still being ignored. We need to keep them coming. We have to make them pay attention. Its on record, but it still isn’t getting any result. I want the opposition party to work harder for us.

Put it to them in terms of what the negative economic impact is to them personally is and you see eco support melt away pretty fast – historically Canadians are pro ecology until it costs them , then they drop support.

Eco/Climate/green support in Canada is like a lake that’s 1000 miles wide and 1 inch deep.
