North Vancouver gas pump labels mimic cigarette packaging but will “eco-crazies” heed their own warnings?

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

North Vancouver implemented the use of stickers on gas pumps to deter consumers from buying the product by suggesting it induces climate change. It was a unanimous vote by city council who agree with media and politicians that think we’re all going to die next week from catastrophic climate change. 

Unsurprisingly, the group behind the labels, Our Horizon, are part of the Climate Action Network. Other members of CAN include Tides, The Pembina Institute, ForestEthics, Greenpeace and the Sierra Club – all groups that back progressive causes funded by foreign money from Rockefeller and George Soros who attack the Canadian oil and gas industry for their own personal gain.

The stickers have the look and feel of cigarette labels, which compare filling up your gas tank to smoking cigarettes. It’s obscure and doesn’t exactly say that gassing up your car will surely lead to horrible things, but it does suggest as much.

One reads:

“Use of this fuel product contributes to climate change which may cause drought and famine.”

Note the use of the word “may.” According to other versions, you also “may” be making kids sick, killing off land animals and marine life.

Until there’s convincing universal evidence that humans are causing climate change, the government can keep their labels and keep their hands out of my pockets by way of carbon pricing.

Why is the government getting involved in the choices people make? If people want to fill their gas tanks and drive to their heart’s content, so be it.

Just like it’s a choice for people to smoke cigarettes, it’s a choice to fill up your gas tank, but in this case unlike cigarettes, fossil fuels have inarguably benefitted the human race by increasing our quality of life.

That exact picture of Africa has been being replayed in Africa every single day since the beginning of recorded history.

How about a picture of a young man sitting in a Spartan apartment eating a piece of mouldy bread instead? With the following label:

“This is only the first thing that happens when we abandon fossil fuels.”

Oh Hell!… And just when the last of those silly, silly roadsigns stating “This Is A Nuclear Free Zone” had turned to rust…

Maybe they should put pictures of the rare earth mines and Chinese peasants dying of cancer from them, of course the eco freaks would not give a damn , their smartphones are worth a life to them.

HMMM i had thought a good part of Africa’s problems were from soil erosion. Can’t grow anything with or without water if you have no top soil.

Is there ANYTHING that we touch on a daily basis that does not have some sort of relationship with fossil fuels?

We need to sue these asshats for lying & fraud!
Lisa – a person should have stickers to cover these lies – explaining the truth and they need to be really sticky so they can’t be peeled off.

Only Canadians should stop using fuel

I will carry my big permanent black marker to the gas station from now on.

This is a Vancouver real estate scam, right?….trying to shame N. Vancouverites into moving down the hill and over the bridge so realtors can sell more houses.
I sure hope they have a sale on dinghies to reach Gastown and Granville Island is selling off Birkenstocks.
Better yet, picture all the bicycles being ridden over the Lion’s Gate Bridge to get to work or to get to the hills with their skis and boards.
Now that would be Nirvana or possibly a new form of road rage.

Holly, please expose these politicians by having the explain how they heat their homes, how they commute to work, and where they buy their food. If even one can show no carbon footprint then they have some credibility.

In certain parts of the country where our oil is imported, the label should read:
This product contributes to despotic and dictatorial regimes which may murder LGBTQ, women, and those who practice certain religions
And should also include: because the Gov’t of Canada has decreed Canadian ethical oil as subservient (by denying the Energy East pipeline) to oil from countries where human rights are extremely limited, excessive pollution (by Canadian standards) is allowed, and where there is financial support for Islamic terrorism.

I am going to stick on sticky tape signs that read -- THE REBEL . MEDIA over their labels

It’s a joke for us , but not for some of them .
Some of their offspring will feel so guilty, they will never get a drivers license, they will clog up the streets with bi – cycles

I’ve seen these….thought it was a f**king joke!

I wish these eco freaks would stop using our resources
commented 2016-07-28 16:58:24 -0400
It’s a joke right?
commented 2016-07-28 16:43:15 -0400
It’s interesting that they use the word “may”.To me this indicates a fear of a legal challenge.Perhaps this is a small crack in their fraudulent scheme that should be exploited.
commented 2016-07-28 16:30:40 -0400
No, Jeremy Williamson. Next there will be a law requiring all gas pumps to be hidden behind curtains so the children can’t see them.
commented 2016-07-28 16:25:58 -0400
Next there will be a law requiring this be branded on some cow’s posterior, and on cattle as well.

When are these SJW fuck sticks going to start protesting countries like India, China or Mexico for their horrible or even non existent pollution laws??
Instead these idiotic dipsh!ts continue to protest in Canada… a country that emits less than 0.5% of global emissions.
commented 2016-07-28 15:53:59 -0400
I think this is just too funny! I bet everybody who pulls in for fill-up has good laugh when they read that as they’re sticking the nozzle in their gas tank.

Eco freaks will not pay attention. Restrictions are only for me and thee. Like all socialists, the rules do not apply to them!

Who in hell have we permitted to run our country?
In other news yesterday an Aboriginal female in Saskachewan received a ten year sentence for murdering a family of four while driving drunk. So far the MSM has removed all reference to her race from their news stories and CBC has prohibited comment. Race, of course would and should not be an issue, but the media is insisting upon making reference to it in all instances when their paid activists wish to display victimization.

I wonder if the agency behind this North Van campaign is the same as the one behind the false information campaign the Non-Democratic Party is using tax-payer money for to promote their carbon hussle.

No, sorry again. I read correctly.

Sorry…….I think I’m in the wrong thread with that last comment (however true it might be).

You don’t need to be smart to be elected and that is one of the tragedy’s of Western democracies. If we had a law that only those in the upper 10 percentile I.Q. could run for office , we wouldn’t have left wing low functioning troglodytes in public office.
sadly when we elect functioning imbeciles it is easy to convince them of anything especially if they tink the public is behind them.
