Holding politicians to account for the working men and women of “Ruffneck Nation” (Guest: Bernard Hancock)

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show


The pro-pipeline trucker’s convoys and protests that began in December are still rolling on.

On Tuesday, another took place in Regina at the Legislature, where activists, politicians and even unionized steelworkers, came together and braved the cold to send a message to Ottawa - “Build that pipe!”

While watching the online chatter about the rally, I noticed a familiar face was on his way to Saskatchewan to stand up for Canadian jobs.

It was Rebel fan favourite and viral video sensation Bernard Hancock!

Affectionately known as Bernard the Roughneck, he famously went to Ottawa in his hard hat and coveralls to deliver a petition signed by nearly 35K Canadians in favour of pipelines.

After the rally at the legislature, I caught up with Bernard via Skype from the road between Kindersley and Regina.

Today, Bernard shares his opinions on everything, from the rally in Regina, to the Yellow Vest movement (he is not a fan), to his new plans to fight for issues that matter to the people he calls “Ruffneck Nation.”

I agree with Bernard about making our cause relevant to the average person. And like you said, Sheila, people care most about local issues. Furthermore, I’d love to use my writing skills to articulate our position to the public but no party has taken me up on that. I maintain that it’s poor messaging by conservatives which allowed Notley and Trudeau to gain power.

That Bernard…I just don’t quite know what to make of him.
On the one hand he’s informed and knowledgeable beyond his job requirements, has a salt of the Earth pragmatism and ingenuous expressive style, that also inspires hope!
It looks like he eats his Wheaties everyday and probably puts in a good day’s work…every day.
I just wonder if and when he gets into politics…will he get a haircut?
To me, the hair seems like a prop, for a specific purpose…I just observe my own…response to it.
Give ’em Hell Bernard!

Trudeau has done the worst thing possible for the future of Canada, he produced a Son.

Note: I am not putting the Son down, he is innocent.

This was a predictable event.

The Young Trudeau is as bad as his dad. Bad for Western Canada.

The sad truth is…the yellow vests in France may have been a spontaneous grass roots movement…but there is no way of knowing wether or not it has been comandeered by the globalists.

Why is it that Trudeau hates Oil so much, yet he is fine with Vasoline…

Speaking of politicians, I haven’t head so much as peep out of Kenny or any of his trained seals with support.

Great to hear from Bernard again. Also great to see this convoy grow. The media party will do their best to ignore it but they won’t be able to hide it. Yellow vests for tax protests. overalls for pipeline protests – sounds good to me. Looking forward to the YouTube channel.
