"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.

Climatefallacy, me too. He should be a regular here. I sure hope there is more to come. He’s the people’s hero.

You cannot get more authentic than that. This guy is gold, and what a vocabulary!

Salt of the earth

We salute you Bernard and all the other people who bust butt for their families.

Canadians like Bernard make this country great. I feel proud and hopeful when I hear such passion.

Wow what a intelligent passionate young man. It gives me hope to know that young people still exist who are self educated and intelligent.

Big bad Bernard on tee shirts please!

You have to wonder about people who say they want to make a better world but make fun of a guy with heart felt comments that ring true.

Great comments Bernard.
For anyone who missed the entire interview a few weeks back on CBC where Canadians ask Mr. Trudeau tough questions, this one is also worth a look. On the Sunday night show, they never played the entire interviews so watching it on the CBC site had to be done to see it all. Danny Strilchuk had some good questions of the PM. Of course with a wave of his hands and some typical political babble, the PM answered in mostly generalities. Interesting thou is at 3:40 into the interview when Danny asks about equalization payments and the possible reduction of these payments, since oil prices are lower and thus $s as well. The PM commented that Que and Ont put in more than AB does because of population……hmmm…..Be nice to get some clarity on this comment. From what we have been told this isn’t the case.

Loved your “roach” comment!

So I am a roach as well.

Proud to be one.

I think I’d like to hear from Bernard on a regular basis.

He speaks truthfully and with passion.

True blue Canadian!

Unlike the delusional Turdo, who really just totally seems out of touch. I can’t even listen to his drivel :-/

Totally true statements, most of the attackers who go after him likely would not be able to work in the oil patch because they could not handle it mentally or physically. So they turn to the only thing they know slander and mindless attacks because someone told them to. Zero original thoughts.
