Ontario suffers rash of pig farm fires in 2016

Victor LaszloRebel Commentator

By a stunning coincidence, fires are killing vast numbers of pigs recently in Ontario pig farms. A list below.

1. January 19th, 2016: 2000 pigs die in pig farm near London Ontario.

NORTH MIDDLESEX, Ont. — The president of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture says barn fires are a harsh reminder of the dangers of farming.

More than 2,000 pigs died early Tuesday in a barn fire north of London, Ont., and while the barn was destroyed, Ontario Provincial Police say no people were hurt in the blaze.

Police say the fire isn't considered suspicious as fire officials investigate and Ontario's fire marshal has been notified.

2. December 4th 2016: 640 pigs die in fire on pig farm in South-Western Ontario:

GODERICH, Ont. — The Fire Marshal is investigating after 640 pigs were killed when a barn went up in flames Saturday morning in southwestern Ontario.

Fire officials say the fire east of Goderich, Ont., did about $1 million in damage.

Volunteer firefighters were alerted to the blaze by a passer-by.

Crews arrived to find the structure fully engulfed, and battled the flames for several hours.

Investigators say the fire is not suspicious.

3. January 23rd 2016: 200 pigs are killed in fire on pig farm in Stratford Ontario.

Nearly 200 pigs were killed in another barn fire north of Stratford on Saturday. Fortunately most of the animals were saved thanks to helpings hands.

Out of 2000 pigs, approximately 182 did not make it out alive. Firefighters cut a hole in the roof to get at the flames while local farmers rushed to the barn to help corral the pigs.

Officials say this fire is also not suspicious.

4. January 20th 2016: Massive blaze destroys pig barn, kills many pigs, destroys million dollar barn.

The pigs destroyed in Tuesday’s blaze were just weeks from being taken to market, worth about $350,000, and the barn another $900,000, said Joris Masschelein, Mark Masschelein’s uncle and owner of the pigs.

The result was another six-­figure loss and more heartache from another massive fire, the fourth in only two weeks in Southwestern Ontario’s farm belt.

 Barn fires indeed do happen. But according to the Ontario Fire Marshal's communique, there is a distinct upward trend in barn fires recently. 

In recent years, fires in farm buildings in Ontario have become a concern. In 2014, 150 fires in barns housing animals or containing equipment and produce resulted in losses of more than $28 million.

In light of the barn fires that occurred in Ontario over the past few weeks, the Office of the Fire Marshal and Emergency Management (OFMEM) reminds fire departments that they can play an important role in preventing such losses by actively promoting fire safety on farms and agricultural business properties in their community.

Bill Elder – we’ll never have all the facts!

Right you are, Edward.

@maurice Potvin Add to that the stories we have seen not only at home but from other Western countries where the police have been protecting the guilty and accusing the victims like we have seen in some of these protests and other events. Without the involvement of the Rebel some of these situations would never been addressed or even mentioned.

ALBERTA BUCK…..What are you talking about? Bill Elder made a point for us to ponder. I am a huge Bill Elder fan but find this to be maybe the weakest one he has made here. So be it. What you said, especially stating your drivel about Rona, Kenny and Ezzra’s rally is blatantly foolish. Were you the same as them, NOT AT THE RALLY? Why were they not DENOUNCING the man made climate change hoax or the crippling phony carbon tax about to be rammed down our throats instead of trying to show how politically correct they could be? The whole rally became a REAL success when we found out the truth about our so called conservative wanna bees. In fact Rona can catch a ride on Rachael’s broom and save energy, she is NO conservative any way. They are SO green. Pile of hypocrites.
The losers are the weak kneed politicians who cratered to the press over a moment of innocence displayed by those of us who were willing to stand out in the cold and freeze our asses off for a JUST cause.

As for the fires in Ontario’s pig barns, I guess the conclusion is that the fire suppression equipment is far better in their cattle and poultry barns. If none of them have burned down in the last year maybe there is some food for thought!!!!

@alberta Buck;
You must be correct as all the dogs in Toronto Ontario that have been poisoned and killed around local mosques are a mere coincidence as well? Yes?
See, the thing about farms and small businesses is this;
Sometimes they can’t afford the insurance. And if they do, it barely covers the losses, that is if and when the insurance actually pays out. If the insurance carrier does pay out, that farmers rates will go through the roof.
In investigating/policing, we call this evidence, evidence committing, motive and opportunity, especially when the local imam issues a fatwah against pork.
Have you not heard of halal?

Edward Jobin, good points. Although we may be jumping to conclusions on this particular issue, the conclusions aren’t coming out of thin air. We have well established precedents for being skeptical of anything and everything MSM reports where there’s a possibility of Islamic involvement. They’ve covered up, denied, obfuscated, deflected and defended Islamic attacks and attackers so often that it’s more of a surprise when it turns out that MSM is telling the truth rather than lying. If, indeed, it turns out that these pig farm fires are all just an unhappy coincidence it does nothing to diminish the threat Islam posses to western civilization. They’re guilty of enough crimes against humanity that whether or not they set fire to a few pig farms is irrelevant. If they didn’t do it, it’s just because the farms burnt down on their own before they thought of it. Nor does it assuage the guilt of MSM for lying to the gullible public.

Maurice Potvin: I was thinking along the same lines about resources before I just read your post and the part I was thinking was that during the course of the election I saw much larger media outlets with much more resource not inferring but making claims as though they were facts about a number of issues such as calling Steve Bannon anti-Semitic and until recently not backing down. Several nights ago I saw Elizabeth Warren making again apologetically claiming Steve Bannon was a white supremacist and for the first time I saw Anderson Cooper politely challenge her and Elizabeth Warren appeared a bit surprised over it so she then proceeded to see what next best claim she could get away with. I appreciated that Anderson Cooper actually spoke up after the two week onslaught of KKK accusations but it kind of struck me today when seeing the contrast of reactions when lefty news organizations make claims and when conservative news organizations pose questions. I still think Bill has some validity in his comment but I have to admit being held to a much higher standard with limited resources is seems allot more difficult when you see those with great resource being demonstrating a devil may care attitude and yet being seemingly getting away with with murder while we worry about speculation.

BILL ELDER, you’re right. Most of us on this site are jumping to conclusions without all the facts, including me. If we really want to comment on this story, we should probably reserve comment until we personally dig into all the available facts that we can gather. But that takes more effort and resources than most of us have at our disposal. Besides, jumping to conclusions is much more fun.

Come anywhere near where I live you little snake motherfuckers and you’ll be shown what roast pig really tastes like

Settle down Alberta Buck. You’re the one who is sounding like your hair is on fire. You sound like a liberal trying to shame us. Not going to worry about being politically correct anymore. Not going to pussy foot around so as not to offend the delicate liberal sensibilities. You can worry about fitting in with the moral pontificaters if you choose, but don’t be giving lessons. I for one am not in the mood for it these days. There are a lot of things to be pissed off about, and all the left can do is tut tut and complain about etiquette.

Start using wood chippers to hurl massive amounts of frozen pork all over the mosque and what they call sacred ground leading up to it… The building is contaminated for ever and we’ll use it for a fast food joint afterwards to sell bacon burgers and ribs..
commented 2016-12-08 19:55:35 -0500
We cannot allow the fear of being branded allow us to stop asking the questions no one else seems to want to but it is fair to ask whether or not there is enough evidence to make this a legitimate news story. I am no authority on that but I do think there is a difference between speculating and presenting something as fact which again was not the conclusion I came to from anything Victor wrote.
commented 2016-12-08 18:57:59 -0500

They should put Anti Personnel Mines around Pig Farms. This would reduce the members of the Death Cult called Islam and also reduce the number of friends Justin has.

Soon we will see Pet Shops selling live, skinned Puppies.

In the old days Muslims used to skin Humans alive, a task usually performed by Women, who were so expert at their task, the victim often lived for up to three days,after being skinned.

Nice friends, right, Justin.

Lisa Rosie I also hear the point Bill Elder is making however in the rash of recent events occurring in Western culture I’m not sure if we can always trust the authorities to do their job without government interference. That is the point of investigative journalism is to ask questions and keep digging without making accusations which I don’t believe Victor has done and I should also confess that I was starting to question if there was any connections before Victor had printed this article the same way I had been wondering if there was any possibility some of these so called racist incidents were being conducted to smear conservatives (not that there isn’t right wing bigots) before evidence started to emerge showing that in reality was occurring. What is crazy is while I don’t want to smear anyone I often find myself wondering is anyone else seeing patterns or is this the product of my own bias or loss of trust in those I once trusted to do their job to the fullest of their ability?

And we all wonder why everyone went nuts after Ezra’s rally in Edmonton when a few shouted “lock her up”….and this is the kind of drivel that follows. Good grief people, this is why! Do you not realize that when such stupid suggested conspiracy theories are posted on here you completely undermine and undo the good that does occur? I’m not sure which is more retarded, the fact that this “story” even made it on this site, or the comments that some have posted about it thus far. And you wonder why the likes of Kenny and Rona distance themselves from you and Ezra’s rally gets discredited as a bunch of losers??? Seriously, what do you expect?
commented 2016-12-08 18:33:10 -0500
Fire at some corner of a mosque; big hate crime.
Incinerating thousands of farm animals (pigs) is not even suspicious.

If we point out to the real savagery & hate displayed by muslims towards all non-muslims, left says we have ‘islamophobia’. Why do mohammedans despise pigs, does muslims have swineophobia??
commented 2016-12-08 18:28:59 -0500
These fires are way to suspicious and they warrant further investigation. I think farmers need to setup cameras to all access points to their property, and on the roads so they can get licence plates. Every barn fire needs to be investigated. I don’t believe that pig barns spontaneously start on fire.
commented 2016-12-08 18:12:59 -0500
I am sure that the insurance adjusters will conclude that it must be the Jews!

‘Barn fires indeed do happen. But according to the Ontario Fire Marshal’s communique, there is a distinct upward trend in barn fires recently. ’ I suppose it could be coincidence, but I hear ya Bill Elder. It would be interesting to know what the investigations determined as the causes of this string of barn fires.

But I agree, a little more fact and a little less supposition should be the order of the day.

I bet its theuslims at work! its only the start, as for thevinvestigations, no suspicion is more than likely political correctness,not to affend the muslim and new refugee community! islam is not a race its not a religion its a ideology that wants to dominate us!
commented 2016-12-08 17:35:22 -0500
Let’s fight these terrorist loving people (silence is support))…….they don’t care about our culture……they care only about Islam. And it is alarming that they have a leftist liberal fascist like Trudeau (and all his ignorant minions) on their side.They are not interested in multi-culturalism (an insidiously flawed ideology)……only is Islam and the Caliphate being established in our once free and noble land.
commented 2016-12-08 17:33:08 -0500
Hopefully, the farmers will start putting security cameras around their barns!
commented 2016-12-08 17:30:57 -0500
All were officially said to be not suspicious , without first hand investigative evidence to the contrary, what is the point of this coincidental blurb but to plant innuendo in the mind of the reader – is that not a tactic of the corporate fake news industry?

If you are implying that these are in fact suspicious there should be some corroborative evidence presented to make that argument.

If Alt media is to hold the high ground in the coming “fake news” pogroms, we can’t mimic MSM fake news technique in any way

Those of you who are civilized defenders of Western Civilization (or civilization in general), take the time to remove four our five packs of pork chops from the bunker in your supermarket who is kow-towing to Muslim social bully pressure…..and place them in the Halal section of the grocery store/supermarket that feels intimidated enough to surrender to Islamic Halal demands. Keep those packs of bacon or pork chops loading into disgusting Halal meat and food bunkers (including Halal yogurt and other products).
Muslims represent only a little less than 2% of our population…..yet they are catered to and given favours like they are a special interest group. Demand that your grocer not stock as much Halal yogurt as non-Halal yogurt. Keep putting those porkchops, bacon, etc. into the Halal bin or bunker.

it wouldn’t have anything to do with moron turdo’s muslim invaders would it , just a thought .

Pork to an Islamist is like garlic, a cross and a stake through the heart of a vampire.
Pork to an Islamist is like water thrown on the wicked witch of the west.
More pork
Yeah pork
pig skin prison uniforms at Gitmo
pig skin burkas
pig skin prayer mats
pig skin napkins at Earl’s
I’d say pig skin toilet paper, but…..
Offended for Islamists? Go to your safe space, quickly now!
commented 2016-12-08 16:44:10 -0500
Of course those fires aren’t suspicious. If they were ruled suspicious they would have to investigate further, and where do you think that investigation would most likely lead? Which group of people(or which religion) has the greatest motive for slaughtering those filthy (non-halal) animals?

Since 9/11 – IN THE NAME OF ISLAM (SATAN): 32,392 Attacks, 207,337 Killed, 290,417 Injured that we know of.
