"What, you thought this was a wig?” - Bernard, Canada's favourite roughneck on Rig 45

After our interview with Bernard went viral, we found him again to ask about the reaction he received. The feedback was mostly positive, but many accused him of being an actor. So Bernard filmed this short clip of himself hard at work on an oil rig, proving he’s the real thing. Shattering all stereotypes.

Check out this really disgusting comment about Bernard from Terri Gergely, the Human Resources Admin for the City of Lethbridge. It’s just disgusting how people would attack this hard working roughneck, instead of championing the message he is giving. So many Alberta families owe him a debt of gratitude for the crap he is going through from people like Gergely. But I guess business is booming for HR Admins as the size of our government expands. It’s only HR Admins for private businesses that are having to lay people off.

Hang in there, Bernard. Hoping and praying that times get better, and you and your colleagues can get back to work soon!

Good thing you have a photo on the T shirt…someone might think you were cheering on Bernard Sanders ☺…

I really hope Bernard is right about the industry getting a foothold in the mental quicksands of NDP-Liberalism…how is it possible to get two governments that hate their own people so much?

to mr. Bus Under . . . insults are useless against the facts that only the rebel reveals.

Right on Man! Thanks for the words of encouragement! Fricking Zoolander, you nailed the “just not ready” twit!

Bernard…keep up the fight. Love knowing the leftards heads are exploding. I see the usual leftist progressive fucktards are adding their dribble. What sad lot they are.
Brian Palmer…. well said my friend. If most other industries had to work under the microscope that we do in oil and gas, there would be whining galore. Something as simple as moving a piece of equipment down the road, we fall under a whole set of rules that others don’t.
Even sour crude is not bad, it has that important part of any fertilizer in it…sulfur.

More from Bernard, please.

After looking up what he said for sure, I have to say’ Well Said’ Bernard! It is re-assuring to know I/we are not the only ones thinking this way.
Next time these people have a protest, we need to organize a “Protest for the Rest” ; in favour of the oil industry, in favour of pipelines, in favour of immigration with integration ( like we all did!). I wonder if I could get the time off of work? Oh wait I see the problem………
commented 2016-02-21 18:58:24 -0500
Way to go, Bernard. We need to hear from more people like you.
commented 2016-02-21 13:05:51 -0500
Go to town Bernard , well done .

Hey, some fresh trolls. Try to contribute something intelligent will you boys er girls, I know……’ non-men’. I finally understand the term Sean Penson troll has introduced us to. (I think it was Penson, I get my trolls mixed up sometimes.)

Wake up Bernard. Levant et. al. would throw you under the bus if it put 5 extra cents in his pocket. You are being used my friend.
commented 2016-02-21 09:23:46 -0500
Coming into the public square, using a juvenile handle like and think you have the moral high ground is an excellent display of Lefty psychosis! As we all now know, the Left use a different part of the brain than the rest of us, and it definitely shows! I hope you continue these displays to ensure everyone gets a first-hand look!! Cheers!!

Is this the same guy who was begging the goverment to help the maritimes when our economy crashed?

NO?…oh…he was the guy telling us to pull ourselves up by the bootstraps.

Got some advice for him…

Ezra…make Bernard a regular. He’s articulate, informed and a Patriot (that new four-letter word in our vocabulary). He’s a Canadian’s Canadian. I can,’t believe how duped people can get. Common sense has flown out the window. Bernard speaks common sense.
commented 2016-02-20 22:25:18 -0500
You go Bernard. There are a lot of hardworking patriotic Canadians with you brother!
commented 2016-02-20 21:48:48 -0500
I hear ya Bernard! I even have family that seems to be disgusted and surprised that I’m still working in the oil industry, and yes, they are NDP and Liberal supporters…Oh, and out of work too and asking for handouts…? I am sick of trying to explain the situation here in Alberta and the effects on the country as a whole.
One thing about pipelines I have never heard floated is that they get old and inherently fail over time no matter the mitigation programs we put in place as an industry. So do we just NOT replace lines to meet demand and replace old ones? We have THE BEST environmental policies in the world for developing, refining and transmission of this product.
That being said…sweet black crude is just fertilizer…spread it on your lawn or flower bed and see what happens, I dare you! Also for the morons out there who believe the oil sands are leaking into the local rivers…DUH!! Yes they are and have been for many hundreds of thousands of years. It is how we found the sands in the first place)))
Hollywood and it’s cronies…go suck an egg! Talk on your own industry, not one you know absolutely nothing about…get out of my back yard!!!

God bless you Bernard. Real men fight evil while cowards shake in their boots. Keep fighting with words of truth !!!!
commented 2016-02-20 20:21:57 -0500
Keep fighting Bernard, you have more friends than you know. It is not everyone who has the opportunity to be heard by Canadians…………but we listen.
commented 2016-02-20 20:13:12 -0500
i am glad that in this day and age we are able to give a voice to guys like him. there are more guys like him around Alberta in all different fields of work that are just as important as oil and gas. the only retards that should be criticized should be anyone from the left. we need to go on a witch hunt after them and hang them up by their underwear and stuff them in lockers just like the bullies did in high school.
commented 2016-02-20 20:01:30 -0500
What needs to be done is we need to explain to the pin heads what environmental policies go into building these pipelines for example any oil or gas spill is immediately cleaned up and reported I’m talking less then a liter. pipelines in the past few decades in Canada compare to no other country in the world Canadian pipelines are the most stringent from safetey, environmental, and quality control standards we in Canada are second to none in the world
commented 2016-02-20 19:36:07 -0500
I’d be proud to have Bernard as a son. He is a well-spoken, passionate, hard-working young man – a real Canadian. I’d love to hear more from him.
