“Tired of being nice”: Bonnyville truckers and Yellow Vests rally for Alberta oil

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

On Saturday December 22, in Bonnyville, Alberta, about two hundred trucks met at the Co-op Cardlock and drove through town to the Bonnyville and District Centennial Centre to send a message to Justin Trudeau — they want Bill C-69 and other pipeline killing regulations repealed so they can get back to work.


At the same time truckers were grinding main street to a halt, a Yellow Vest protest had formed in the centre of town.

Along with the free hot dogs, there were messages in support of the oil patch, against the UN Global Compact on Migration, against Trudeau, and even against the media bailout.

I attended the protest to see what people had to say.

Bonnyville’s rally and convoy coincided with several others held across Western Canada. Medicine Hat, Lloydminster, Brooks, and even Estevan, Saskatchewan hosted their own convoys to show support for the beleaguered and bottlenecked oil patch.

The message was clear. For the people in Bonnyville, all they want for Christmas is a pipeline.

If this were in the U.S. there would be contacts, pins, hats, vests and anything else for purchase to show SOLIDARITY but up here in canukistan- a one horse land, we are completely clueless and ignorant about everything! WE ARE LOSING OUR COUNTRY, FREEDOMS, DEMOCRACY AND SOON LIVES, PEOPLE! WAKE UP!! TRUDEAU IS NOT GOING TO STOP THE MANIACAL DESTRUCTION OF US AND CANADA UNTIL THE NEXT ELECTION AT WHICH POINT THERE WILL BE NOTHING LEFT TO FIGHT FOR! WHAT DON’T YOU ALL GET? CANADA IS BROKE, A NON NATION, UNDER CONTROL OF THE U.N. AND ISLAM, WE HAVE NO JOBS, NO INDUSTRY, NO INVESTMENT- FOREIGN OR CANADIAN, OUR DOLLAR IS TANKING, OUR INTEREST RATES AND TAXES ARE RISING, THE COST OF EVERYTHING FROM FOOD ON UP IS SKYROCKETING SO WE WON’T BE ABLE TO EAT, HAVE HEAT, HOUSING AND SO ON WHILE THESE INVADERS GET IT AL – INCLUDING THE GOLD PLATED HEALTH/MENTAL/DENTAL/EYE ARE BUT HE JUST REMOVED $1.8 BILLION IN CARE FROM OUR MILITARY!! WE HAVE NO MILITARY ANYMORE TO PROTECT US BECAUSE HE TOOK ALL THEIR FUNDING FROM THEM SO ALL WE HAVE NO IS THE U.N. WHICH WILL GLADLY SEND THEIR TROOPS TO PROTECT THE INVADERS IN OUR LANDOVER US!

HE STOLE $7 BILLION OF OUR TAXES A COUPLE OF MONTHS AGO AND HID IT IN HIS COFFERS, AND MY QUESTION IS, FOR WHAT

If you want to see a world class melt down watch Jessica Wetzstein as she rants and raves against the protest in Bonneyville while it was happening. She has many social, political, environmental issues and she also has personal issues. Her video was taken down from her facebook page but people have saved it and posted it back. There is a lot of repetition but it is DEFINITELY WORTH 30 MINUTES TO SEE THIS VIDEO.

I only wish these trucks could show up to 24 sussex drive on 1st day of parliament. Or shut down the 401/417 into Quebec for a week in June, the start of holiday season.

“The protests will grow. "
To be effective, they will have to, HARLEY.

They will also have to target federal institutions as well as provincial. The New Year will be a good time to think about interrupting oil flow to BC. Give them a taste of the petroleum free world they voted for.

Greig McKinnon,
Thank you. I agree with you 100%!!
Well said and regarding not submitting GST, I have been saying this along with suggesting ALL OF US REFUSE TO PAY ANY TAXES ALONG WITH PULLING OUR MONEY OUT OF THE BANKS UNTIL MOHAMMAD TRUDEAU AND HIS CANADA/CANADIAN HATING TYRANTS FALL!!!
I have been suggesting this for over a year now but canadians keep telling me, “we can’t do that because we will lose our jobs, homes, be jailed” and so on.
lol, if you think that by continuing to obey laws in this NON NATION, TO SOMEONE WHO REALISTICALLY IS NO LONGER OUR ‘P.M.’ BECAUSE CANADA NO LONGER IS A NATION, that things will get better, you only fool yourselves BECAUSE WHAT TRUDEAU HAS IN STORE FOR US IS GOING TO HAVE US ALL WISHING WE WERE DEAD- AND I BELIEVE THAT IS ALSO ON THE AGENDA as he sifts through our health records, bank accounts and credit info to decide WHICH CANADIANS CAN BE EUTHANIZED (OUR ELDERLY /AILING AS HE IMPORTS THE WORLDS ELDERLY AND AILING PROMISING THEM ALL THE GOLD PLATED HEALTH CARE AND FREE LIFE), AND OF COURSE TO STEAL MONEY FROM THOSE WHO EARN ABOVE A CERTAIN AMOUNT.
WE CANADIANS ARE LOOKING AT BEING A THIRD WORLD SEWER WITH US THE SLAVES AND IN THE GUTTERS UNDER TRUDEAU AND HIS ISLAMIC ANTI CANADIAN TYRANNICAL REGIME/CARTEL!
Sit back and enjoy the ride as it is all down hill at full tilt when he is re-elected because we have no democracy and he owns the election next year!
I warned before he was voted in in 2015 that if he got in there will be NO WAY WE ARE EVER GOING TO GET RID OF HIM!
And here we are!

Thank you Alberta!!
You clearly are the ONLY CANADIANS WHO ACTUALLY GIVE A DAMN!
I am a woman of 60 (in ontario) who in a land of now 37 MILLION, seems to be one of but a very few actual ‘CANADIANS’ left in this once proud, sovereign, democratic, respected, envied, safe, wealthy, free nations, now a borderless, lawless, leaderless, post national third world sewer in the making, who actually sees what is happening and on it’s way for us and the former canada, and I am FRIGHTENED TO DEATH as should all canadians be, but clearly aren’t informed enough (I would guess more by choice) and simply don’t get it!
Only 3 short years of this anti canadian, pathological lying/thieving, sychopath trust fund tyrant to completely DESTROY what took MILLIONS OF PEOPLE AND HUNDREDS OF YEARS TO BUILD AND PROTECT!
How very sad for our youth/children because apparently no one cared enough to ensure they will have a safe nation and future to call their own.

GREIG MCKINNON commented, “In addition to the ongoing rallies/events, how about encouraging any business or company involved directly or indirectly with the oil patch, to stop collecting & remitting GST. Not only AB but across the country there are countless businesses that are being adversely punished by the Trudeau Liberals. Anything that would slow down or hopefully stop the Trudeau rampage should be considered.” I understand that business can also withhold their federal taxes.

Jason Kenney like Trudeau espouses the view that those terrorists are acting on a perverted view of Islam.

With respect to the latter, for example, there has been a 30% increase in suicides over the previous year…………………………

This will be music in Trudeau’s ears. He is in the business of Race Replacement, he knows that believers of the Muslim faith will work for a third of the wage that Canadians get paid. So why not starve Canadians to death and give Canada to his Islamic Cohorts, this will do wonders for the Trudeau Foundation and Allah will be happy also………Way to go eh? Justin.

Please support Derek Fildebrandt ( provincial )and Maxim Bernier

( federal ) in their efforts to free Canada to give us back a liberated Canada.
Jason Kenney should not even be a consideration for the next provincial premiere of this province, he is self-serving and has many questionable policies some of what he likes to keep very quiet.. like his views on mass migration.. he is liberal lite as is 99% of all conservatives coming out of Ottawa.! Equality in Alberta or separation.!!

Just watched a video at CanadaPoli with a link to a recent interview with Trudeau in French, where when asked about the Yellow Vests, Trudeau states he wants to monitor anyone who is against mass migrant & the UN migration compact. What’s next, using chemical weapons against those that don’t embrace his agenda, like Macron did?

When things get bad enough, most Albertans will vote to secede. Confederation with Upper and Lower Canada has never worked for us and never will.

Until then, enjoy the decline.

Yeah that truck convoy to Ottawa is in the works,it will happen in Feb.the first leg is from Fort Nelson BC to Calgary AB and then on from there. If you want more info it’s on the Rally for Resources website.
commented 2018-12-24 13:45:26 -0500
Absolutely agree,peaceful protests are a start but with this Idiot at the helm peaceful ain’t gonna cut it . We have to ramp up the fight,and like I said we are going to take another hit in Jan. with his carbon tax!! That alone on top of all the other crap this traitor has pushed on us,should stoke the fires of anger towards him!!!

SHELDON EISLER commented, “Good to see the protests and convoys building momentum, however the yellow vests are going have to take it to the next level to get Trudummy to flinch”.

I agree as I posted below, desperate times require desperate measures.

RON CHRISTENSEN commented on what he foresees as the next level, “Looking forward to the rally in Ottawa , there will 100,000 strong on the steps of the treasonist building . MSM won’t be able to hide that rally!”

I for some time had called for storming the Parliament and not leave until there is a commitment to start constructing the pipeline immediately. Apparently there are plans to have a trucker convoy descend on Ottawa. Hopefully, Trudeau’s RCMP won’t stop them from entering the city. Could be joined by tractors and combines
commented 2018-12-24 13:29:58 -0500
‘The message is all they want for Christmas is a pipeline’. I hate to be a Grinch, but that certainly won’t be forthcoming this Christmas.

Even if Trudeau decided (and he wouldn’t) that construction of the pipeline will start tomorrow and I mean tomorrow, it wouid probably take years to complete. Alberta’s economy is cratering and that will continue along with the terrible social consequences. With respect to the latter, for example, there has been a 30% increase in suicides over the previous year.

How long can Alberta wait? Wait for what? Desperate times require desperate measures.

I couldn’t agree with you more. It is time. What we need is a leader to take us there. Wouldn’t it be great if Stephan Harper and Brad Wall took up the challenge!

I took part in the Medicine Hat rally. Part of the ground crew holding signs. Was great to see the support from the community. Am looking forward to the next rally!
We are not going away. If Trudeau doesn’t listen, he will it come election time next year.
Merry Christmas to all.

Good to see the protests and convoys building momentum ,however the yellow vests are going have to take it to the next level to get Trudummy to flinch,and let’s remember we are a few days from the king douchebag from imposing his federal carbon tax. We the people have to make this punk more uncomfortable in 2019!!!

If we the western provinces get out, all of Canada will suffer. That being said, some areas will suffer much more than others. The elites are too stupid and think we will not separate. Of course they have never worked a day in their lives or seen what it takes to raise a barn. This is why they are corrupt and could care less about working Canadians
Oil from ….. places with no regulations on them butts massive impossible regulations red tape and c-69 for Canadian oil.

People from ……. no ID necessary walk into our country and are put up in hotels.
Here for years at our expense. Canadians can sleep in the streets.
This is the plan for job shortages.
Prairie province people are the can do kind.
turdo and the elites are in for a surprise.

Thanks Sheila for such good coverage. I follow Domestic and World news as much as 6 hours a day, plus I know many Albertan’s, and lived in Saskatchewan for a few years.
Never did I think that Alberta was in such a rough situation until I saw your videos of the truck and equipment conveys. I was in Truck & Equipment Leasing, so I realize that there are Billions of Dollars in assets that have to be working, or the equipment will be repossessed.

Some uninformed people may say, " Why did Oil workers spend almost a million dollars on this equipment, if they didn’t have a contract?" The better question would be, “Who would have ever thought that A Government in Canada would ever try to kill the Industry that pays a good part of Canada’s bills?”

The problem isn’t that the World’s demand for Oil is going down, as it is going up.
I can only hope that a new Government under Jason Kenney will follow up on his idea of Oil-Starving the people in the way of a return to a prosperous Industry, and an annihilation of the Trudeau Government whose policies are anti-oil industry.
