REVEALED: Why Karen Mahon, another radical on Notley's oil sands advisory panel, got arrested

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

We've been reporting on Tzeporah Berman, the radical activist who Notley appointed to co-chair Alberta's oil sands advisory panel. Well, Karen Mahon, who once worked as a managing director for Greenpeace, is another activist that the NDP have hired on to the Oilsands Advisory Group.

Greenpeace has a long history of protesting logging companies in the boreal forest. They’ve chained themselves to equipment to stop production. They’ve successfully harassed customers of these companies from buying their products and they've also called for Quebec to put a stop to 80 kilometres of new logging roads.

Mahon herself has been arrested for crossing a court injunction zone meant to protect Kinder Morgan drillers.

What's more, Karen Mahon and Tzeporah Berman, the queen bee of anti-oil activism in Canada, go way back. Berman’s Forest Ethics was right along side Greenpeace protesting to save the Great Bear Rainforest.

There is a network of anti-oil activists helping the Alberta government achieve what they want: shutting down the oil and gas industry.

Rachel Notley and the NDP might publicly support pipelines, but hiring all of these known anti-oil operatives with your tax payer money should send a clear message.

The entire left is supporting only one thing and that’s poverty for the peasants. Poverty for everyone but themselves. The next election cycle should see them all sent back to hell. I expect the backlash against the attempt to venerate and reward incompetence and stupidity will be harsh.

Notley doesn’t give a shit what people think, except her masters at the UN. She is going to tell the panel to shut down the oil sands so she needs some people to advise her on how than can happen. Again, Notley does not care what people such as constituents think. The only Albertans that want to shut down the oil sands are NDP environmental whacko nut jobs who have swallowed the LEAP Manifesto like good little communists. Pipeline talk is all bullshit smoke and mirror crap to appear like Notley is in favour. This ain’t no dirt digging article. Get with the program sparky.

Dirt-digging article. Two points:
1) the current panel is actually fairly evenly weighted between what may be considered ‘pro’ and ‘anti’ pipeline representatives. Actually the pro side outnumbers by one or two members.
2) it is a reflection of what a plurality of her constituents want.

Charles Moulton—— There is nothing good to say at a time like this. I am sorry.
God Bless.

Jamie -they have been pissing around long enough to have it well figured out as to how to ‘Divvy the Loot’. Now, it is just to sell it to the Poor , the Destitute , Maligned and make them feel good about being Fucked. This will be done by sending them a few checks a year -$100 at a time—-and a thousand bureaucrats will be required to perform this largess.

Jamie. Good point!
It should be a lesson to them, and to all of us, that you don’t get ahead by appeasing your enemies, you only make it easier for them to kill you!!

A really interesting movie has been released – Clinton Cash.

There are so many Hillary Clinton talking points that are the same as Notley, Trudeau and Butts. I’m sure one doesn’t have to look to hard to find similar dealings between Notley and Trudeau’s governments and CNRL, Suncor, ATB, NGOs, wind and solar energy companies and all associated unions as were demonstrated between the Clinton and there benefactors.

Socialists say they are against capitalist cronyism but really they are the worst for abusing it.

Protests lead to extortion?.. Buy our greenpeace friendly label, and we stop our protests.Protection racket?

Well, if the petroleum industry was upset, I’d be right with them.

But I just went to the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers’ (CAPP) website and checked into their media releases. I went back to the election, and not one press release expressing any concern about Notley’s crew and their policies. As a matter of fact, CAPP’s last release was a gushing piece about Canada being a leader in the fight against Climate Change. Read and puke. http://www.capp.ca/media/news-releases/canada-positioned-as-a-leader-in-north-american-accord-on-climate

So you now what? As long as they are aiding and abetting the death of Alberta’s (and by etension Canada’s) economy by (a) promoting the great hoax of Climate Change, and (b) refusing to speak out against the likes of Notley, they can circle-jerk themselves to death.

LIZA ROSIE: Knowing that Mahon has kinder on the follow should instill that much more fear of our futures if these Marxist loons maintain power beyond the next election. Quite probably that will be the last chance to save the Province.

BILL ELDER: I’m with you. I’d rather see tax dollars go towards feeding them in Drumheller than having to pay them as politicians bent on destroying a once PROUD province.

MONGREL: An astute observation from your Okanagan adventure, the BC version of “Traffic by Mongrel”. I suppose half the plates are Albertan. Maybe its their plan to drive us out.

It all seems so incomprehensible! To go from Redford to this? I still can’t fully digest it.
Karen Mahon a career activist like Berman. Mahon has been arrested 20 times and is proud of it. She also has spawn following in her footsteps.
Why bother posting these activists to Alberta’s oil sands advisory panel. Why waste the time and money? Oh yeah, employing your friends and sticking it to Alberta is what you do. Just completely shut down the province and be done with it. Quit with the song and dance.

When this criminal globalist NDP cabal tanks, I say we take these charges from civil court to criminal court and build a new NDP wing onto the Drumheller prison.

Marg is as invisible as ever. I had contemplated writing a letter to her to ask why she specifically hired Berman, because obviously that as energy minister Marg would be the one deciding the parameters of an energy committee. But it would have just added to the back-up of my other queries, and like the other queries this one is rhetorical since we know the answer.

For traffic, I’ve only been to Grande Prairie recently but still uncongested. Only one tanker in a round trip last Friday. However, I was in the Okanogan and I think that is where most of the former congestion of Alberta is. All the unemployed following the invisible energy minister’s advice and going to Interior BC

GERALDO: you will either have to go to a hearing doctor or brush up on your reading skills. She went where she wasn’t supposed to. If you are upset at the way the Rebel reports its news run off to the CBC. That should get you the facts. (at least the leftist, liberal propaganda facts )

MONGREL: Where is McCuaig-Boyd? You would think the phantom of Alberta’s NDP cabinet, the invisible energy minister, would be front and centre in any such consultations or policy discussions. Actually she probably wouldn’t even be heard amongst the rabble rousing commy douchettes that Che Notley is bringing in.The works should be buried in the deepest hole that the “TAR” pits can offer.
Also Mongrel, what is the latest traffic report from the north?

Geraldo, I won’t say you are dumb, but certainly inattentive. Try the 1:32 mark of the story. Pretty succinct summary of the arrest.
commented 2016-07-25 11:02:37 -0400
Maybe I’m dumb, but where does it say what she got arrested for. The tactics that you use are better suited for the National Reporter, instead of a news media.

This fucking government needs to be taken down.

I just lost another friend today. He killed him self because of bills and he lost his family because of stress and bills.
I don’t believe in killing ones self. But this is caused by the government and no one else.

The NDPiggs need to be brought down. At any cost.

I bet if the oilsands advisory panel had to put a fiver in the jar every time one of them slipped up and said “tarsands,” they could kibosh the carbon tax before New Years.

I would still like to know who the white guy in the Hollywood headdress is.

Again, follow the money. Both Forest Ethics and Greenprace are multi-national conglomerates, capable of being the paymasters to the Non-Democratic Party of Alberta and the public service unions, which also are paymasters to the Non-Democratic Party. Add the fact that Notley is auditioning for an Order of Canada, the Non-Democrats happily dance at the end of the strings of their puppeteers.

It was less than a year to destroy an economy that took 68 years to build before the Non-Democrats took power. Now they have 3-4 years to grind out the traces of that economy. There will be very little to re-build from in 2020.
