Are you like me, convinced that the silent majority in BC and the whole country support pipeline projects? Are you tired of staying silent while foreign funded environmental activists flood the public sphere with disinformation? Are you a tax payer in Burnaby or Vancouver, tired of seeing your tax dollars being spent by these governments to oppose the TransMountain pipeline expansion? It’s time to break that silence.
You can do that by attending the federal government's hearings in the Lower Mainland in the coming days and weeks. If you click on the link here, you'll get a list of sessions in Burnaby, Vancouver, North Vancouver and Victoria.
Do you remember Ezra's "Yes Vancouver" BBQ back in October 2014? I was there and spoke to a crowd of several hundred industry supporters.

Well, it's time they stop being the face of BC.
With over 100,000 job losses in Alberta and a dramatic 31,000 job losses across the country in July, will you stand up and support a project that will provide thousands of construction jobs in BC, and support our ethical oil getting to new markets in the far east?
I know it might be intimidating to go speak up at a public consultation but know this, the silent majority in this country is behind you — and maybe ready to break their silence, if you will.
