Massive “Truckers for Pipelines” convoy in Nisku sends clear message to Trudeau

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Today, Alberta truckers from all across the province staged a massive protest convoy in Nisku, Alberta.

Organized in just 36 hours by a group calling themselves "Truckers for Pipelines", the convoy sent a strong message to Justin Trudeau that Alberta needs “pipelines not handouts” and that the Liberals need to kill their pipeline ending Bill C-69.

The trucks started staging at Blackjack's Gaming Room early this morning for a drive that would take them on a loop through Nisku, finishing up at Ensign Energy Services where Conservative Party leader Andrew Scheer spoke this afternoon.

Organizers said they aimed for an optimistic turnout of 1,000 trucks and pieces of heavy equipment.

Instead, convoy numbers reached nearly 2,000 units. In fact, so many trucks participated in the convoy that it took nearly two hours to get all the trucks out of the staging area and organizers were concerned that the 22 km long convoy route wouldn't be long enough to accommodate all the trucks at the same time.

Today, I talked to some truckers and their supporters about why they thought it was important to come to the convoy on a very chilly December morning.

If a trucker’s protest of this size took place anywhere else in the world, there would be political resignations.

But here in Canada, I doubt our leaders in power will even pay attention.

ROBERT PARISEAU—-Thanks for your comment, some people in the West just don’t understand that we need Quebec’s help to de-throne Trudeau.
Regarding Trudeau’s open Borders, I am sure that Quebec would also appreciate the West’s help in making Trudeau disappear.

Unless the convoy comes into Montreal, specifically the area around City Hall (where Valerie Plante, who also marched in the Gay Pride parade, is the Mayor), you might as well be banging your skull against a titanium wall. The Liberals do not need Alberta to remain in power.

On only a day and a half notice. turdo separation is in the air. the protests will only grow. turdo will be responsible for the break-up of Canada.

A real eye-opener. If only our idiot PM was told what this means, but alas Butts won’t tell him anything other than it being a festive local holiday parade. Dumber than a rock Baby Doc Trudeau will believe Butts and then go back to looking at and admiring himself in a mirror.

The fact that these people are in Dire Straits makes Trudeau and his Traitorous Gang happy. They are accomplishing exactly what they have set out to do. That big ole Mosque that is being constructed at Fort Mac is so the Muslims are close to what they are going to be taking control of once our Sharia Government is in power. It warms my heart to see Canadians gather in great numbers to protest. Even though they will gain nothing. Protests are empty exercises that make those protesting feel like they are making a difference. A difference won’t happen until the damage, maiming and killing starts, if France is any example to follow, that’s what tends to get attention.

WAKE UP! This convoy ended with a speech from Andrew Sheer – a man openly, firmly committed to the Paris Accords; another fake Westerner devoted to the petroleum phase-out. Harper had 9 years to build pipelines to the West-coast but would not do it. Everyone gripes about equalisation and transfers to Quebec. Our current regime was designed and re-approved by Harper, Sheer and Kenney. If all Sheila’s got to say is “Vote Sheer” then she’s got nothing to say. Western Independence is in the air. Bexte’s got the beat. Sheila….

Grandiosity refers to an unrealistic sense of superiority—a sustained view of oneself as better than others that causes the narcissist to view others with disdain or as inferior—as well as to a sense of uniqueness: the belief that few others have anything in common with oneself and that one can only be understood by a few or very special people. It also occurs in reactive attachment disorder.

Well said Andrew

Finally, some Albertans get off their arses. Good for them!

I hope this is just an infinitesimal taste of what’s to come.

PETER BABICH commented “Should have drove right to the legislature and bunged up the whole downtown. I heard they overwhelmed the ring road instead”. I agree but wait until the legislature is back in session and surround the legislature.

Would Alberta join Canada?

We really have no reason to “join” the USA either, for example. Imagine where we would be with an Al Gore or Shrill-angry Clinton in charge? Same place we are now… The question an independent Alberta should ask is. Who would we allow to join “us”? Saskatchewan? Northern BC? The Yukon? Alaska? Manitoba? North Dakota? Really any of the so called “Flyover States”. A nice strip from Texas to Alaska leaving the pathetic and degenerate east and west coasts to marinate in their own fecund juices sounds nice. And when they invariably fall into chaos and insolvency, we can buy them at fire sale prices.

I support the truckers, and the oil.gas industry 100%, but to Trudeau and Butts,Alberta is lost territory,they know very well they aren’t popular there and never will be.
Add to that the fact that Alberta oil would be in direct competition with ME oil in which the Eastern elites are heavily invested, and you have NO chance of Trudeau ever doing anything for Alberta. Liberal sycophants will boast about Trudeau’s “generous” offer to commit $1.6 billion to the Alberta oil industry should prove he cares about Alberta, but those of us who have followed Trudeau’s career know very well Alberta stands dead last in Trudeau’s world. The $1.6 billion is a slap in the face to Alberta considering their portion of the taxes paid into Quebec every year.
Alberta must elect politicians who will lobby for separation or at least regional autonomy,which Liberal government will fight tooth and nail, including enacting the War Measures Act (or the updated version thereof) if necessary.
The Liberals have no use for Alberta or Albertans, there is no sense trying to convince yourselves otherwise. The West is just a tax source for the East, nothing more and it never will be more than that in this uneven union we call Confederation. Canada is a feudal democracy, the East are the Lords, we are the peasants, and every four years they give us the illusion of having a say in matters. It’s about time the West grows up and recognizes the ugly reality of the situation instead of helping to maintain the delusion.

Well this is certainly a Timely Discussion. “Would Trump or Trudeau do more for Alberta”; as the Rebel Media put forward.

Gee Whiskers; possibly tying in the Alberta Resouces with the Montana & North Dakota could establish a Source of Clean Ethical Fuel for all of North America e.g. Continental North America for as far into the future as can be truly determined. If the North Eastern British Columbia, North of “Fifty Four – Forty” decided to come along then the access to the Pacific Market without establishing dangerous routes travelling through significant Population Centres will increase the Safety for both residents of Alberta; North East B.C.; Montana; North Dakota; and all of the midwest residents now experiencing the __ Rolling Down Tracks Pipe__ on Raiway Tanker Cars Owned by the indifferent to Ordinary Citizens Safety.

Seems like a natural fit for Saskatchewan; Manitoba; Northern Ontario; and possibly Minnesota.

I do hope the South Central Ontario/Niagara Peninsula will have an opportunity to participate. The truly independent thinking residents of these Former Canada-West areas will be interested in an such a proposition.

Had no problem with the Henday being slow today. It was for a good cause. I hope they slow up the QE2 as well if Notley does not listen.
