Bill C-48 protest: Revive Keystone, make BC pay $2 per litre

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Yesterday was the swearing-in of Alberta's new premier, Jason Kenney. But that's not where I was. Instead, I visited downtown Edmonton to cover a rally organized by the Canada Action Group Against Bill C-48.

C-48 is Justin Trudeau's tanker ban on Canadian oil exports heading out to the world from the coast of British Columbia.

The law, if acted the way it is written, will amount to a prohibition on any further pipeline approvals if the destination is to foreign markets via the west coast.

While the Senate's Transport and Communications Committee held hearings on C-48 in an Edmonton hotel conference room, about 20 or 30 protesters gathered for an hour outside to protest what they're calling a discriminatory law.

This law, known as the Oil Tanker Moratorium Act, was introduced by the Liberal MP Marc Garneau.

The Act unfairly targets Canadian oil in the west while oil from Saudi Arabia, Nigeria and Venezuela is freely imported every day via tanker to Canada's east coast.

C-48 isn't a tanker ban. It's an Alberta oil export ban.

In my video, I asked the protesters what they think Alberta’s new premier Jason Kenney should do to get the ethical, Canadian oil flowing.

Actually Don Bos, I predict it will become apparent much sooner than that… Did you note the other Rebel item today about the price of celery skyrocketing because of “colder weather”? The flooding in Eastern Canada also didn’t come out of nowhere but because of record snowfalls this winter… Another one or two winters to come because of “quiet sun” solar cycles, and the hoax will collapse, and rather quickly from there on…

Dan and Don: Amen!!!

I live in the East Kootenay region of BC. Here our politics are more in with AB, than the West part of BC.
We are for the pipeline and jobs.
I predict that over the next 10 years, the great global hoax, of man made global warming will be proven to be the swindle that it is.
CO2 is critical to all life on earth. Higher levels will be better for all of us.

I live in the BC interior. It’s a 100 mile drive to get groceries, each way. There is NO public transit.
The carbon tax forced upon us to battle the non-existent man-made-global-warming and the falsely named evils of carbon dioxide are going to make my groceries even more expensive than they already are…along with everything else!
I didn’t vote for the commie retards in the NDP or Greenie criminals, the NDP/Greenie coalition was NOT on the ballot I filled out, so I grant this ‘government’ NO validity – for all the good that’ll do.
This anti-Canada, anti-oil, anti-pipeline criminality needs to be dealt with in the strongest possible terms! It boils down to the fact that this Alberta/BC thing, and what Trudeau’s dirty Liberal scum have foisted on this country is treason and they should all be dealt with accordingly – like, get a rope!
As I shout out to no one here in the interior of BC!

As for Vancouver, the lower mainland, the Fraser Valley and the Island falling into the ocean during a Big One, I’ve wished it too as a kind of justice served. Due to the fact that the clement weather and moral lack of political leaders, attracts all the low degenerate scum and depraved undesirables…and no I didn’t consider all the good people forced to live in the shit-hole Vancouver/Lower Mainland, Fraser Valley, and Victoria has become…
You guys should get out of Sodom and Gomorrah…while you can!

Sheldon Eisler.. B.C. indeed “needs to feel the pain” and is already!… But NOT ENOUGH it seems!… It is obvious that there is a serious, serious “disconnect” in too many B.C. politician’s brains betwixt “cause and reality” or betwixt “clicking your heels magically and reality”… And I live in B.C.!… Go Kenney!…

Ya gotta love the leftist hypocrisy. They want no Alberta oil shipped by pipelines because they are going to save the planet by driving less. Then when the carbon tax hits and additional price increases happen they are outraged that they can’t afford to drive. Is that not exactly the plan of the carbon tax? to get us to change our "lifestyles?

Now Alberta threatens to give the self righteous urbo-weenies their hearts’ desire they are outraged at the prospect of having to walk , swim and ride bikes like they tell the rest of us we should do.

Enjoy your cold crow.

Whether it’s pipelines,the economy,political correctness,or whatever else that has polarized this country,we all need to remember there is really only one person that has caused all this division and turmoil and that’s Trudeau!! He’s responsible and he has failed everyone of us Canadians by his pathetic inability and lack of common sense to lead this country!!! This pimp needs to be purged from our government period!!!

Lila Rosie: I take offence that you hope that Vancouver Island and Vancouver should sink into the sea or some such drivel. I did not vote for John Horgan or Andrew Weaver but we are to be condemned??? There are thousands of us on Vancouver Island that did not vote NDP or Green. There are thousands in the Vancouver area that did not as well. I understand that you are frustrated but so are we, and we have to suffer along with the rest of you.

As far as we are concerned we think that the world has gone to hell in a hand basket. There is nothing but insanity. The federal government under Trudeau and BC under Horgan and all the other insane things that are going on in the world at large.
commented 2019-05-01 19:37:29 -0400
We can talk till we’re blue in the face on this ,bottom line is if Horgan and his posse don’t develop a brain and quick,then BC needs to feel the pain and I hope Kenney acts sooner than later!!! Enough posturing get a meeting done and lay down the law to Horgan followed by action. This doesn’t need to be dragged out into a series of nothing meetings!!!
commented 2019-05-01 18:48:17 -0400
That’s the real insanity of it all… Saudi oil tankers are chugging up The Bay of Fundy every day to discharge crude at the Irving’s Canaport Terminal in St. John every day… And every day American tankers from Alaska chug along Canada’s West Coast and the Straits of Juan de Fuca to get to the refineries in Washington State… BUT, would-be Alberta oil exporters are magically restricted? “Splain’” please? Anybody???
commented 2019-05-01 18:29:22 -0400
would anyone except a quebecer like garner not think getting tankers from the middle east scum and south america should be banned as well. no, not in eastern scumville. as always screw the west at all times. they seriously make me seriously sick at all times.

Well, we spent 2 weeks last summer in the Rockies. If we were doing it this year we’d avoid BC.
commented 2019-05-01 16:53:41 -0400
Canada steam ship line the tankers are owned by uncle Paul (Liberal). Flagged in another country to avoid Canadian taxes. That is why the tanker ban was placed on our west coast. If Trudeau had his way Alberta would import Saudi oil at twice the price.
This federal government is corrupt to the core.
Trudeau for fraud and treason.
commented 2019-05-01 16:50:40 -0400
So much for summer road trips.
Things are going to get ugly out there.
I want Vancouver, (lower mainland) and the Island to fall into the sea, so the rest of us in the province can function. Its Canada’s industry not lotus lands. I live in BC, but the ball is in their (Horgan and activists) court.
What is wrong with our voting system, I don’t know anyone outside of the Lower mainland and maybe Nelson, who voted for Horgan or May. Its like BC is split into two provinces.
If Alberta separates, I hope they let me move back.

Keith, I don’t think you are far off about the employee replacement. Boy, is that going to piss people off. I hope Kenney thinks long and hard before he allows, or has a hand in that.

SHEILA , it’s good to know that your on top of things regardless of who is the government.
Best wishes to the newly elected Alberta government

Trudeau does not want Canada to be an alternate supplier to the Arab oil customers. Gees, I wonder how much señor Trugrope was paid by the Saudis to table this legislation.
Disgusting. Our country could be one of the richest in the world and every citizen could be very well off if not for politicians the likes of Trudeau and Morneau.
However, they would rather keep us dumb and poor.
commented 2019-05-01 15:25:09 -0400
The people whom pull Trudeau’s strings, want the oil workers to migrate and find jobs in other Provinces. when the have achieved this they will bring in the cheap labor, imported from Islamic countries and only then will oil flow through the pipe lines again, with reduced overheads and increased profits and a smile on Trudeau’s chubby face.
