FSJ for LNG: Pro-energy group travels to Ottawa with message for PM

Rebel Staff
 

Tuesday afternoon the Fort St John for LNG convoy rolled into Edmonton and to the Legislature grounds. 

The grassroots group from Northern BC is driving across Canada, making stops along the way to Ottawa to ask the Trudeau Liberals to cut the red tape and end delays holding up the approval of liquefied natural gas export projects in Northern BC.

The cross country drive is just the latest pro-energy action the group is doing. Fort St John for LNG held rallies during the Spring to show their support for the delayed LNG projects that they say will create thousands of jobs and billions in economic development all across Northern BC and the rest of Canada. You can see my coverage of those events here and here.

Fort St. John for LNG was started by one man, Alan Yu, in January after he was laid off. His movement has grown to other towns across the north, like Fort Nelson. Yu now has local Northern BC mayors and BC Premier Christy Clark supporting his efforts.

We’ll be checking in with Alan and the rest of the FSJ for LNG crew as they make their way across the country. I hope someone finally listens.

I’m sure Rebels would join them in support if they knew when and where. The itinerary should be posted.

I commend the grassroots group from Northern BC for delivering their message. It is necessary to get the message across, however I fear the Trudeau government will not listen.

Ya, like justin would support anything with Saint in the name. He’ll probably threaten to nuke the whole province, since he doesn’t know we don’t have nukes

The wisperin’ carrot from the vegetable kingdom Mickey Mann) would say they are non-Canadian because they don’t think like carrots. But then how Canadian is carrot despotism?

Integrous grassroots movements are important and is a positive way to get heard, however, Ju-stalin Turddough’s mandate is already predetermined and quite clear. Just read between the lines of BS. There will be no pipelines, or anything fossil fuel development related while he is on the throne. We will only see and hear pretentious displays of pseudo-interest from governments in attempting to appease the people and the media.
With that being said, the people cannot fall into rank and file behind this pompous, arrogant know-nothing dolt. The people must never give up, never!

Canadian Mongrel: Thanks for the reply. I actually wished Alberta could have annexed the Peace Country area of BC back in the day when such was proposed. That area is a good match for Alberta and vice-versa. Do you think we will survive this mess? I want to cry.

Just heard The Donald’s speech in Bismarck at press conference. He was asked what he thinks about the federal government regulating the energy industry and he said, “they need to get out of the way.”!!!!
I pray for Trump to be in the WH and take on the Turd/Butts and Notley. Trump has already said how crazy Obama is for forcing Canada to sell our oil to China instead of the US. He is giving the first speech on his energy policy and it will be interesting to hear his plans.
Skip ahead to end of first hour:

Canadians are Screwed . . . there is not going to be ONE pipeline built in Canada during the Trudough/Butts Regime.
Lots of windmills and solar panels though . . .
We are ALL Ontar-i-owe now ! ! !

David White,

Don’t worry, I’m not a Clark fan. It is ironic that she needs a pipeline after assisting the delay of lines from Alberta when we needed an ally to the West. Now she does not have a pipeline from the East through NE-BC, which could have helped her current need.

I’m just impressed that she left the high density region of her province, which is generally low scientifically literate environmentalists, to speak to a low density region composed of intelligent workers. Something Notley will never do.

CANADIAN MONGREL: I hope you and your son don’t totally fall for Christy Clark’s outpouring of support, it might fall a little short on the sincerity scale. Beware of the blackmailing cunt. I hope your son is correct, but the likely scenario is she is just babbling out cover for her fat liberal ass. If she orders a House arrest of Saint Suzuki on treason charges, you might win me over.

DJBT and the rest

Talk to junior all you want, not gonna make any difference. These policies have Gerald butts written all over them and that bromance is set in stone.

Asking JT to do anything useful is akin to pissing into the wind. Out Prime Idiot’s agenda is to ruin Canada.

These people would do better to visit Justin’s favorite Mosque and bribe his favorite Imam, this way they may catch Justin’s ear.

I respect what these people are doing and wish them all Good Luck in achieving their goal.

Fraser, are you taking people’s words again? And Milan, stop swearing, damn it! ;o)

@fraser McBurney….I swear you took the words right out of my mouth.

Allen Yu is the type of person we need to come to Canada not the 50,000 dead beets who can’t speak English who don’t want to blend into Canadian society.

“Yu now has…and BC Premier Christy Clark supporting his efforts”

Our son who is resident in FSJ told us about Ms. Clark’s appearance and speech of support that she gave in FSJ on behalf of NE British Columbia LNG and required pipelines. This meant that she flew from the Island and Lower Mainland to attend a function organized by concerned citizens in a low density population region, hence few seats, of her province.

This made me jealous of our son. He has a premier that actually cares about the people of her province, no matter where they are. While in Alberta, we have the Non-Democratic Party which only cares enough about the people to wring the tax dollars out of.

Maybe that is why the invisible Alberta Energy Minister and MLA, McCuaig-Boyd, suggested that all young workers go to BC. Not only would they find employment but a real government as well.
