"They can forget it": Greenpeace just made two surprising new enemies

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Saguenay, Quebec mayor Jean Tremblay's video calling Greenpeace "a bunch of job killers" is getting lots of attention.

Greenpeace claims the lumber industry is destroying the region's boreal forest, but in his viral video, Tremblay shows that this is junk science.

Even the Liberal premier of Quebec is joining the anti-Greenpeace chorus.

Philippe Couillard says if Greenpeace thinks they're going to destroy his province's forestry industry, "They can forget it."

This is incredible. This isn't Alberta or British Columbia. It's Quebec, one of the most progressive provinces, pushing back against the multinational, foreign funded lobbyists at Greenpeace.

(PS: I've got an embarrassing question for Greenpeace about cleaning up their own environmental messes.)

I’m floored and ecstatic that the one defending the forestry workers is a LIBERAL! I must be drunk…

Greenpeace can’t clean up the mess it made in Peru. That damage to a priceless historical area is permanent. You have to wonder who gets these stupid ideas and how they find people who are even dumber to help carry them out.

Dan Basler = another mouth frothing, low information, far left zealot, who hasn’t got a clue.

Dan Basler – You DO realize that the timber industry has a vested interest in making sure the forests continue to grow, right? They replant areas they forest. Drive through BC; there are signs saying when the area was forested and replanted and when it will be ready to be re-harvested, usually in 50 years. Please THINK just a tiny bit before you comment.

Greenpeace is as much a facade as the “Back to the Future” town centre on the Universal lot in Hollywood. They like to look good from the outside, but behind the scenes they are the worst of the worst . They are anti-capitalist , anti – democracy and are married to Marxist philosophy. This is true of the entire radical left, part of which occupies the White House. Their funding comes from Soros and other far left radical billionaires. All funneled into front groups that we see every day in some manner. The paid for activists at Furguson, the paid for activists working to prevent pipelines , the paid for activists ginning up the First Nations. It goes on and on.
It is well coordinated and funded. All part of a radical socialist movement .

That Peru fiasco will finish Greenpeace. They won’ recover from that. Time to move on.

Good for Couillard. Time more like him speak out.

Good point about trees planted, Marjorie Spacek.

I posted earlier about tree planting by JDIrvingForestry Company. As of January 28, 2015, JDIrving had planted 902 million trees—“a national record in Canada.” I repeat: How many trees have been planted by Greenpeace?
