Absence of political leadership leads to more officer injuries at Burnaby protest

Another police officer has been injured at the Kinder Morgan job site on Burnaby Mountain British Columbia.

A 41-year-old man is facing charges after he removed a City of Burnaby survey stake then fled from arrest. The RCMP officer was injured as he pursued the man and was shoved by another protester during the foot chase.

A fellow protester posted a video on Facebook as she encouraged the man to run away and called out to others to shove him, later admitting to shoving the officer herself!

Just a week ago three more RCMP officers were injured at the Trans Mountain protests.

Despite the protests turning violent, Green Party leader Elizabeth May and NDP MP Kennedy Stewart showed up to support the protesters and were arrested for violating a court injunction to stay away from job sites.

Burnaby Mayor Derrick Corrigan is complaining about the increased police costs related to the protests, yet in 2015, he said:

“If we go to court, we're going to go to court with clean hands and ensure we've done everything humanly possible before I stand with you and probably 10,000 other people and get arrested to stop this (pipeline).”

Canadian politicians don't seem concerned about the lawless situation.

We’ve heard nothing from BC Premier Horgan, and nary a peep from Rachel Notley even though the violence is being led by two of her former hires, Tzeporah Berman and Karen Mahon. It’s complete silence from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

As the situation worsens in Burnaby, so too does the absence of leadership.

The RCMP — our proud national police force — aren't just people who carry migrant luggage across the border and follow Justin Trudeau's family around on vacations.

These officers live and work in our communities. They work hard to keep us safe and they deserve our respect.

Their political bosses, not so much.

Isn’t it time to hear from some of the First Nations people who work in oil and gas, and aboriginal owned companies involved, pipeline contractors etc. ? Can we interview some? Many? Not all are against responsible development.

Lawlessness is what these paid protesters and their useful idiots are all about. The governments involved are ham stringing the police and RCMP. Get the vermin out and build the expansion.

As that protester ran away, I couldn’t help shouting, “Run, Forest, Run!” This is how absurd this whole thing is becoming. And this is all the more reason to stay away from the lower mainland. There’s too many leftist lunatics there.

We need true Canadian Patriots to show up and beat the snot out of these paid trouble makers. If any are not Canadian Citizens they need to be rounded up and deported, forever. That includes people like Jane Fonda and other Hollywood elites that come here to protest. These are just another brand of Terrorist. And where is our Conservative Members that so badly want to take office in 2019? Drunken Hags like Ellie May will show up but not our Conservatives.

I can’t even believe what I am seeing. Put these people in jail. Lock them the puck up. Any politicians involved should lose their jobs after they are charged and get out of jail. My damn tax dollars pay for their salaries. Get them off the payroll.
So infuriating to see these stupid paid protesters being so lawless. Give these people some damn jobs and get them off the streets and off the dole.
Reparations my ass.
Build the pipeline, and get a paycheck! Were tired of paying for these troublemakers.

Funny how the Mayor of Burnaby, who encourages the protesters, does not want to cover the cost to Police the protest, but I don’t hear him complaining about all the Property Taxes he is collecting and will collect from the Pipeline companies.

Aren’t we tired of having these lawless do nothings control our country?

It’s not just the Communist Trudeau and his jackboot goose steppers. Where is Mr invisible, Andrew Scheer and his heroes crew.
