A hard-left-wing MP just commissioned a poll about Trans Mountain Pipeline:
"Of the 938 British Columbians surveyed by Insights West, 48% said they support the pipeline expansion, while 44% opposed it, and 9% were undecided.”
And that support has actually gone up in the past few months, which is amazing after a decade of professional slander paid for by anti-oil extremist groups.
Here’s the other take-away from the poll:
"Of those who are opposed, 23% said they would consider acts of civil disobedience aimed at stopping or disrupting construction."
Well, 23% of 44% — that’s 10% of people who say they’d do civil disobedience. Let’s say 90% of those people are just being tough guys on the phone with pollsters, but one in ten out of them aren't. There are 4.6 million British Columbians. One in ten thousand ready to fight violently — that’s 460 people. I believe it.
A few years ago, protestors rioted about this very same Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline. There were more than 460 people there. One, Karen Mahon, was subsequently hired to work for Rachel Notley, on Alberta’s oil sands advisory council.
So was Tzeporah Berman, a former Greenpeace executive. A few days ago, she tweeted:
"Fact is people are angry and feel betrayed and hugs and platitudes are not enough. Conflict is messy and unpleasant but looking necessary"
She told the Calgary Herald:
“If they break ground, then there is no question that hundreds, if not thousands, will stand up to oppose them. Nobody likes conflict. I’ve been to jail and it’s not a pleasant place and I’m not looking forward to going back there. But we’ll do what it takes.”
Will the Trudeau Liberals try to stop her and these "hundreds" or "thousands" of protesters from getting violent?
Tonight I'll explain why I think the answer is no, using Trudeau's own words...
