“Students Against Pipelines” Kinder Morgan protest was missing one thing

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Yesterday I attended one of the smallest anti-pipeline protests I’ve ever been to in Vancouver. Advertised as “Students Against Pipelines”, it was a one day strike to prevent Kinder Morgan.

I figured it would draw numerous passionate socially conscious youth from our large universities like UBC and SFU. But alas, I suppose the rainy weather yesterday morning couldn’t pull many away from the cozy comfort of their homes or classrooms.

Of course the lousy weather didn’t deter the usual suspects in the activist community from attending and attempting to repudiate the case for pipelines and the oil sands.

Watch as I run through the familiar faces and their all too familiar tactics, including trying to shut me out.

Just another bunch of low information protestors who would never let the facts get in the way of their professional activism.

Just in from CBC:
“Premier Rachel Notely along with her caucus and advisors were not able to attend the anti pipeline rally, causing the numbers to be less than expected”.

KWould have been poor optics.)

Not one person in Canada or any other western country can exist without oil or oil products. There is not one item in your house that has not been touched by oil.

There is not one green energy project that can be built or maintained or operated without oil or oil products.

I recently read this in an article and admit I have decided to steal it for my own use:

Quote – “One month without oil or oil products and every person in the western world would be grubbing for food in the ditches with their bare hands – and many would not even have clothing” – End Quote

It is a decidedly true statement.

As far as I’m concerned they’ve been paid back enough. Let them make it on their own like the rest of us. I know many upstanding American Indians that don’t rest on their laurels. Besides its not their country. There were Caucasian people here before them but it’s been hidden,forgotten and buried. No one owns this country,despite what Justin thinks. He said something like “there is no Canadian identity”. And he should know

Whatever happened to the good old days when people used their minds? Seriously, what ever happen to a thinking population that sees beyond the end of their nose?

After the coming long cold winter and a struggle to pay unnecessarily high energy prices , I suspect next summers protests will draw even less interest.

I guess since gerald buttheads is running the country they don’t need to protest…

This protest should make the MSM for one reason only – lack of interest in eco-freaks and their fake agenda.

The media party will probably say this protest was crowded with people. SAD!

Look lets just all do as these 10 people say, who cares what the rest of us think, only they matter.
