“Accidental” pro-energy activist tells “other side” of dueling Trans Mountain protests

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

 

Last week there were dueling protests on the streets of Vancouver.

One was organized by deep-pocketed foreign funded environmentalist groups against the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. It was attended by thousands.

At the other protest, around 500 people from all across British Columbia and Alberta came together to show support for the pipeline.

The estimates for the size of the crowds at both protests came from the police. But CBC insisted on rounding one of those numbers down by at least half in their coverage. Can you guess which one it was?

If you guessed the 500 normal people, you'd be right. But that wasn't the worst part.

Bowing to pressure from anti-pipeline activists, CBC reworked their article and placed an addendum at the bottom of it, stating:

“A previous version of the story gave coverage to the pro pipeline rally that was disproportionate based on the number of people who attended. The story has been updated to more accurately reflect both sides of the debate.”

Unreal. CBC caught themselves being fair and balanced to both sides of the pipeline issue and had to put a stop to it.

I'm annoyed. I don't like having to pay for CBC to tailor their coverage to be kinder to the anti-Canadian radicals who oppose Canadian pipelines.

CBC might be trying to write the important independent pro-energy voices of regular folks right out of the news cycle. But not us here at The Rebel.

Tonight you'll meet someone who drove over 20 hours -one way! - to get to Vancouver to advocate for his community and for hundreds of other people who couldn't be there to have their voices heard.

Joining me tonight from Fort Nelson is amateur pro-energy activist, Ian Fife.

How nice to see somebody standing up for this generation of new workers. Governments, as Brian Jean wisely said, are working against us. Young workers are especially vulnerable because they’re just starting out. But idiologs like Notley, Horgan, Wynn, et al just don’t get it. While misleading people, they’re only working for themselves. The NDP aren’t for the workers but for their own self preservation and perpetuation.

YES Canada would be easily energy self sufficient, Our coal, sold to China ( for peanuts) shipped by our rail lines. Then ship by sea to fuel their coal fired electrical plants) where is their carbon tax?
The liebral fix is in, turdos uncle Paul owns the tanker shipping line that does not pay any Canadian taxes. Registered to another country. The one that imports 800,000 barrels a day up the St,Lawrence river.Then shipped by rail and truck all over the East. We get to pay the carbon tax on the trucking part and when we use the fuel. This allows for the millions (probably much less) spent on stupid anti Canada anti oil (useful idiots) thugs. Allowing the LIEBRALS to make billions off the Canadian people.
Nope no carbon tax for uncle Paul,s tankers bringing in OPEC oil and no upstream down stream carbon assessment for him. A flight in a friends small plane along the Canada US border. Amazing how many power lines run across to the US. Then we are told Alberta needs more capacity for generation, now I know why. Bet we pay the carbon tax for the US too.

Canada is the victim of the SS. Steyers and Soros . You don’t need an aircraft carrier and stealth bombers and submarines to take a country out. All you need is billions of dollars to get the simple minded to do your evil bidding .
Link oil and natural resource development directly to health care expenditures and you would have more people protesting for pipelines.
Trudeau and Notley will do what they will. But what will feckless smiley face Scheer and his flock of sheep do to defend Canada from these attacks on our sovereignty. More smiles?

You would think that the left wing governments would want all people to be working … more tax money to splurge on the wasteful useless projects they love to do. But apparently the left wing governments have difficult grasping this concept.

Ian Fife is a proud Canadian, and I appreciate his hard work. We are a resource rich country and its time we get back to being proud of that fact.

Boy, the CBC is gaffing left and right these days.

- The CBC is all about lies, omissions & propaganda. They are a pathetic money pit. The anti-oil activists are fueled by foreign oil interests. They’ll make billions of dollars while the activists get some crumbs. They sold their souls for very little.
