Activists arrested at Kinder Morgan protest vow “rise of resistance” unseen in BC

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Last Saturday, activists equipped with petroleum based products like sea kayaks, banners and paints, took to the waters of Burrard Inlet to protest work being done by Kinder Morgan at their marine terminal.

The activists attempted to disrupt the beginning of the long delayed TransMountain pipeline expansion by mooring approximately 50 kayaks linked in a chain to the Kinder Morgan barge.

Once police arrived, five activists were arrested and charged with criminal mischief.

Among the five was a familiar face:

Stand.Earth's Karen Mahon, long-time activist and until last spring, a member of the Alberta NDP’s controversial Oil Sands Advisory Group.

It appears that after Mahon left OSAG, she was free to return to the hard-core activism she does best.

And if Saturday's action and the press conference she hosted with three others arrested on the following Monday are any indication, Mahon insists this is just the beginning.

Watch as I reveal that Mahon's organization Stand.Earth will begin to hold training sessions for activists to learn how to participate in non-violent direct action, and also give you a sense of the kind of people besides Mahon, who are leading the cause.

Kinder Morgan hopes to begin serious work on the project as soon as possible, but they are facing challenges in court and from local municipalities like Burnaby who seem to be deliberately delaying issuing permits as they oppose the project.

As the protests develop and escalate, count on The Rebel to be there exposing the truth about these activists.

It is. It is foreign money crippling our oil industry and it’s a travesty. The aboriginals of Canada are being used and abused and their Chief’s pockets are being lined with that foreign money; while their people are getting paid minimum wage to show up at a protest in lieu of the proper employment they would have if projects to get our oil and gas to tide water were allowed to go through. Canada has more oil and gas than the U.S, is second (or third?) to the Saudis and competition for the Russians for Europe and China. Nobody wants the competition and that fits right into Uncle Soso’s plan to destroy our country in order to further his global agenda and fill his pockets and the pockets of those puppet politicians and elites who co operate with the Islamic/globalist agenda. Canada is the perfect opportunity right now for these destroyers. We are weak, vulnerable, stupid and a perfect target.

The so-called “elected leaders” of our nation have all been bought for a song. They naively think that they will get to dodge the bullet when they are brought to their knees for the devil’s cult. I feel nothing but pity for these gangsters, and for the voters who think that a liberal government will take care of their every need, because they are in a protected segment of society. Diversity is actually division, and we all know how liars and deceivers use words to distort the truth for their evil agenda. And they think all the peasants are too stupid to figure out their game plan.

Where are the protester blocking the ST.Lawrence to keep those Saudi supper tankers out. One spill of this size would wipe out the whole eco system or would make a nice mix with the raw sewage.
Me thinks it,s foreign money at work to cripple our oil industry. The billions the East is spending on Sharia oil is being used against us to prevent Canada from being self sufficient.

If our governments on all levels weren’t involved in this then they would be arrested, and their charitable status revoked. This just proves that Canada is being taken over by the globalist UN for Islam, with the assistance of the civil service who have infiltrated every level of government.

I think the Canadian revenue service needs to get involved, document and audit all of the so-called nonprofit organizations… There must be a lot of profit in a nonprofit organizations where the upper people live like kings on 5 million dollar donation’s..
commented 2017-11-01 02:02:26 -0400
And about as phoney/authentic as the materials used to make today’s costumes for those photo op “drum beating circle” shots…
commented 2017-11-01 01:58:48 -0400
All the protestor kayaks I see in the cover shot are either F.G. or Kevlar with epoxy resins holding them together… In other words, their “protesting fat asses” are sitting on a petro-based synthetic platform… I’ll start listening to them when they arrive in wood veneer and pine tar ones, or, Gasp!, the original seal skin shells…
commented 2017-11-01 00:36:04 -0400
Or even better they should leave the barge where the raw sewage gets dumped that these same eco hypocrites never give a damn about.
commented 2017-11-01 00:34:47 -0400
They should just put the barge farther out so these lazy pukes would have to get a bit of exercise to reach it with their Kayaks, that would solve this in a second.
commented 2017-11-01 00:17:03 -0400
I sure would like to expose these people. The foreign funding, hidden/laundered or blatant has to be stopped. This is nonsense.
commented 2017-11-01 00:03:13 -0400
…sorry, HYPOCRITICAL kool aid drunk.

Earl, hand over everything you own and go live in a cave you kool aid drunk.

Stupid left wing morons they can’t see their hypocrisy.
Earl Richards put that petroleum product down you hypocrite.
commented 2017-10-31 23:47:43 -0400
Now that Karen Mahon has a criminal record does that disqualify her from politics.??
I would think so.!!
commented 2017-10-31 23:47:32 -0400
I wonder what mode of transportation they used ? Unicorns and pixie dust ! Hypocrites

Take a pill rick… everything is gonna be ok 😎

… “Activists” are people that actually do nothing. The labels of the Left are always dishonest.

Wonder how much gasoline is used just organizing and attending these Marxist protests. Bet the Scummers don’t walk.
commented 2017-10-31 22:31:36 -0400
Kinder Morgan’s pipeline is a stupid idea from the start, because there is no equipment to clean-up a filthy, tar sands spill. This stupid idea is an insult to the intelligence of the British Columbian people. The dilbit is riddled with cancer-causing toxins. Remember the Kalamazoo. Dump KM, to save beautiful BC.

There is a lot of foreign money pouring in to stop Canadian gas and oil . Trump would stop these clowns in their tracks but not the fool on the hill . People are loosing everything they worked for and the so called activists could care less Sad day for Canada .

Ezra also says that it won’t be built. I say it will, as I know Justin Trudeau doesn’t have much going for him except tons of Pride, therefore he will have to save face.
commented 2017-10-31 21:32:17 -0400
And not a peep from JT.

Isn’t this the pipeline he wholeheartedly supports?

And some actually believe that Notley stands a chance.

WILSON , I’ll be watching your coverage
Thanks for keeping us informed
commented 2017-10-31 20:26:04 -0400
These protesters have Soros’s $18b behind them, so there’s no budget restrictions for them to achieve their goals. Plus they have the tacit support of Trudeau, Notley, and Horgan. I would bet some of my after-tax-income that the Kinder-Morgan project will not go through.
