The anti-Kinder Morgan protest encampment is getting safer with a little help from taxpayers.
Global News BC's Jordan Armstrong tweeted:
"City of Burnaby official says city spent $60,000 to install these temporary concrete barriers at anti-KM protest camp following complaints from protesters & area residents about their safety from passing vehicles."
The protesters are getting taxpayer funded walls to protect them from traffic because their illegal hobo squat is too close to the road?
Sixty grand is a lot of government help, especially if you’re on the wrong side of the law. It’s also a lot of help from the City of Burnaby whose Mayor Derrick Corrigan says he is unwilling to find money in the budget to pay for the extra policing costs associated with the ongoing protests against Kinder Morgan.
But what else should we have expected from a municipal government headed by this Mayor who once vowed he’d do whatever he could to stop this pipeline.
Watch as I show you what else he’s done to encourage this lawlessness and what kind of concrete barriers for these protesters I might agree to.
If you need a visual of what I want their safe space camp to resemble, look no further than the local jail.
