Vancouver Mayor just another anti-oil activist using political power to stop pipelines

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Tides Canada is a registered charity and non-profit funded by progressive foundations and billionaires like George Soros for political gain. They’ve spent millions against Canadian oil and gas, pipelines and blocking oil export to Asia, and it’s working. 

Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson is in on it. He was the director of Tides and founded and chairs “Happy Planet”, an organic food and smoothie outfit run by a network of Tides Canada charities.

Hollyhock, an activist training centre mainly funded by Tides, pledged to vote for Vision Vancouver, Robertson’s municipal party which raised questions about breaking Canada Revenue Agency rules that proscribe charities from taking part in partisan politics.

Through Vision Vancouver, Robertson is targeting Kinder Morgan using tax dollars. The website hosted by the City of Vancouver, urges people to contact the Federal government about the Trans Mountain pipeline project.

Catherine McKenna stacks the National Energy Board review panel with anti-oil appointees, Rachel Notley stacks her climate change and oil sands panels with anti-oil members and now Vancouver’s Mayor is using taxpayer dollars to fight against the Trans Mountain pipeline.

Politicians from three levels of government are fighting against Canada’s oil and gas industry and Vancouver’s Mayor is just another anti-oil activist who’s in on it.

Earl Richards the land needed to produce that much hemp would mean many people on the planet would starve. Try some reality. By the way no one is stopping you form using hemp rather than oil, so go right ahead.

Hi Holly. Great work putting together all the pieces into one convenient video.

Liza—-Where are you getting all this nonsense from? We have never been introduced.

I know about hemp oil Earl that’s why I’m laughing at you. You think our oil requirements can be met with hemp.
Any country that shuts down the extraction of their resources is destined to third world status. You are not anti “tar” sands Earl you are anti Canadian. You think we are going to be some kind of leader in alternative energy do you Earl? We will be leader of nothing, because the country will be broken. I hope that reality bites you hard one day.

Earl Richards: That’s right, you do not need Alberta oil because you use OPEC Venezuelan highly sulphurous crude oil shipped by super tankers every day into the Vancouver port. Save us from your hipocrasies. California’s oil, like Alberta’s Oil Sands, are also bitumen taken from near the famous tar pits in that state. But you don’t hear any idiots like you knocking it. Why do you have such harsh opinions on Alberta’s Oil Sands and not California bitumen, or Venezuela’s high-sulphur crude? Why is Alberta fossil fuels bad and not that of Saudi Arabia, which we import to replace domestic oil fools like you demand be left in the ground. And what makes you an expert of oil anyway? You are full of sh8t.

Liza—-To learn about hemp, Google and read, “Hemp”. It is already growing in Canada, in Australia, in the US, in the UK, France, the Ukraine and Russia.

Earl after reading this comment, “D Mary—-Oil can be replaced by hemp.” I fully understand where you are coming from. Better get planting that hemp Earl.

Hey Earl: Speaking of taste, how was Penson?

David—-Your comment article lacks good taste and should be deleted.

D Mary—-Oil can be replaced by hemp.

Liza—-Again, you missed the point. You are trying to pin on me a dislike for Alberta. Where you got this notion from I don’t know? In my comments, I never stated any thing against Alberta. If you read my comments again, you will read that I am against the tar sands.
commented 2016-08-22 20:25:51 -0400
Kevin—-The citizens of Vancouver don’t need you. They can buy electric vehicles and plug them into their household, solar arrays. The solar arrays can provide the electricity and the power. Because of the shorter transportation distances, why isn’t the gasoline from Washington cheaper than the gasoline from Alberta in Vancouver?
commented 2016-08-22 17:29:02 -0400
Earl maybe Vancouver should get there gas from the states , and they could also start buying there power and Natural gas from them to .
commented 2016-08-22 17:24:36 -0400
Bravo ZULU I couldn’t agree more I work in Northern B.C in the oil and gas industry, if the people in the lower mainland only new that billions come from the oil and Gas to repave there back alleys and redo the parks etc.( DUMB FUCKS) like I’ve been saying we should shut the gas and Electricity off that comes from Northern B.C to them off for a few months then lets Here them start Bitching .
commented 2016-08-22 15:02:08 -0400
Wow, how incredibly uninformed and frankly stupid the voting public is to have voted people like this guy in. The Canadian voting public is a huge disappointment to anyone who truly appreciates freedom and prosperity.

I went to the website and clicked on the page to send a letter, deleted the form letter against pipelines and wrote this instead: " I am vehemently opposed to Gregor Robertson using taxpayer dollars to fund the website and Robertson is completely biased being on the board of Tides which is funded by progressive billionaires against pipelines who may not even be Canadians. What Robertson is doing is an abuse of power and office. I am in favor of west and east pipelines because Canada needs the revenue for the present and future budgets and to invest into green energy sources when fossil fuels will be obsolete. I am against importing foreign Saudi oil and believe that Canada should be completely self-sufficient energy wise. How is it okay that Saudi Tankers go up the St. Lawrence as an alternative? The east and west pipeline should be approved contingent upon satisfactory oil companies plans for clean up in the case of spills. We should not let foreign organizations and countries influence and dictate our energy policy." Thank you to The Rebel for bringing attention to this very important story.

There is no informing these people. They will never accept the fact that it is a safe process.
The benzene used is minuscule and the waste water is taken to a treatment center to be treated and the benzene retrieved
it’s less likely to sink than traditional crude
The amount of carbon dioxide emitted into the atmosphere during extraction is inconsequential
Canada’s ‘carbon sinks’ absorb more carbon dioxide than the oil sands emits. Carbon dioxide is essential to life on this planet.

There is no way people like Earl will accept any of these facts and will just continue to come up with misinformation. They intentionally call it ‘tar’ when there is no tar, they may as well call it molasses, because it explains the viscosity of diluted bitumen better than ‘tar’. Bitumen in its natural state is more like black oil soaked sandstone. Nothing molasses or tar like about it.
The answer will always be no with these people because they want to keep all of it in the ground and use conflict oil and U.S. oil. Who needs Alberta, right Earl?
I tell ya I am praying for that big one to hit and bite off the most useless ungrateful, mean spirited and patently stupid bunch of people in BC, and spit them into the ocean.
It’s not about the oil, it’s about bringing Alberta and indeed the country to it’s knees and these people don’t even realize that they are having a hand in their own destruction.
Ignorant foot soldiers for the globalists.
commented 2016-08-22 11:25:54 -0400
Earl, you do realize that tar comes from coal, oil comes from the oil sands. You do realize the oil sands is the worlds largest environmental cleanup and reforestation project that has the added benefit of providing oil, from which thousands of by products are made, those silly things you benefit from daily, like the clothes you are wearing right now, and the computer you are typing on right now. So, pack it up, take it back to the store, as well as your clothes. And return the fuel you use to heat your trailer. Then paddle your canoe, the one made from petrochemical products, out to meet those American tankers running down the coast, and send them packing.

When Sean Penson and Earl Richards wipe the turds off each other’s dick maybe they should think things out a bit. I’m all for shutting the Kinder Morgan taps off at Jasper. Then Earl could enjoy using that US gasoline. With none coming in from Alberta he and Sean could enjoy paying 4 times as much $ as they would end up a captive market. If we were to shut down fossil fuels Sean, Earl and the like would be the first to perish. Lets shut down rail traffic from BC into Alberta, we don’t want any rail traffic to carry any dangerous products from BC into Alberta. Maybe we could work something out if you pay us enough money. Remember how fat assed CHRISTY CLARKE couldn’t support Northern Gateway unless BC got ENOUGH SHAKE DOWN CASH AS POSSIBLE.

Moron EARL: " Michigan oil spill effects could be felt here". And a bus just ran into a tree, no more buses. A plane just crashed killing people, no more planes. A wind turbine just killed a thousand bats and other birds. No more wind turbines????? You leftist tools think you have such good arguments when in reality it is nothing but weak rhetoric. You think we don’t care about the environment?? Think again. BUT there is a balance that is reasonable. Why can’t you fools understand. I guess if you are that against fossil fuels, you could move to a cave somewhere with NO BENEFIT FROM FOSSIL FUELS OF ANY KIND. AND DON’T BURN ANY WOOD TO KEEP WARM< WOULD’T WANT TO LEAVE A CARBON FOOT PRINT. YOU WOULD PERISH YOU FOOOOOOOOOLS.

TELL US WHO HAS TOUGHER ENVIRONMENTAL STANDARDS EARL Canada or the US. I have worked in both countries in oil and gas and can tell you Canada Alberta and BC have world class standards for environmental regulations and inspections. It seems this does not matter to you just as long as you get what you want right EARL. Your greed and irrational hatred of Alberta and it seems anywhere except Vancouver is pathetic really.
commented 2016-08-22 10:23:59 -0400
You do not support the energy industry in alberta or bc. yet you support oil drilled in the arctic transported by pipeline across Alaska loaded onto tankers transported all the way down the coast to Washington, then the finished product containing GASP BENZENE shipped to you in vancover by pipeline. Is that correct,

Regan—-It have already been stated in my previous comments. Google and read, “Michigan oil spill effects could be repeated here”, by Michelle Barlond-Smith. As already mentioned, Vancouver can get its gasoline from Washington state.

Earl Richards LOL GUESS WHAT EARL SO DOES GASOLINE STOP USING IT, SO DOES PLASTIC STOP USING IT. I will ask again what part of the process do you not like ???????????????????
