Pipeline supporters MUST speak out at upcoming TransMountain hearings. Here’s how

Christopher WilsonRebel Commentator

Are you like me, convinced that the silent majority in BC and the whole country support pipeline projects? Are you tired of staying silent while foreign funded environmental activists flood the public sphere with disinformation? Are you a tax payer in Burnaby or Vancouver, tired of seeing your tax dollars being spent by these governments to oppose the TransMountain pipeline expansion? It’s time to break that silence.

You can do that by attending the federal government's hearings in the Lower Mainland in the coming days and weeks. If you click on the link here, you'll get a list of sessions in Burnaby, Vancouver, North Vancouver and Victoria.

Do you remember Ezra's "Yes Vancouver" BBQ back in October 2014? I was there and spoke to a crowd of several hundred industry supporters. And you know what the biggest thing I heard from people there? They looked around and said, "Wow, we really are the silent majority, it's just that the eco-nuts are loud and forceful." Well, it's time they stop being the face of BC.

With over 100,000 job losses in Alberta and a dramatic 31,000 job losses across the country in July, will you stand up and support a project that will provide thousands of construction jobs in BC, and support our ethical oil getting to new markets in the far east?

I know it might be intimidating to go speak up at a public consultation but know this, the silent majority in this country is behind you — and maybe  ready to break their silence, if you will.

Anoynamiss…if you don’t like the rebel then get of the computer and go outside and play hide and go fuck yourself. It is voluntary, unlike the cbc that sucks off the tax payer.

You do have a way with words Mike. I laughed out loud when I read your comment!

Billy Howard….when is the time the right time? Donald Allan sums it best in his post….the left are Johnny On The Spot if they don’t agree & become activists, so why doesn’t the right do the same…..instead of whining & complaining which accomplishes nothing. Chris has offered a great idea for the right to do something positive where your voice can be physically heard by 100’s of people, especially those conducting the hearings. If you live in the area, I hope you will participate, Kinder Morgan needs all the positives they can get.

Anonymous , I am a lot less sick of TheRebel asking for money than I am of the Government/Media Complex that feeds us nothing but distortions , lies and suppresses news unfavourabe to their points of views and socialist perspectives. Tim Horton’s doesn’t give away free coffee because the workers and the coffee and flour to make the donuts requires some payment. They provide a service , you pay for it.
And speaking of asking for money. Does the Government not demand payment in terms of taxes for everything you do and purchase? Trudeau , Wynne and Notley are all behind the counter at Tim’s demanding their 13% . And they are at your door collecting for the privelege of providing you with electric power and gas for your furnace. Sure ,it comes in the form of a utility bill, but NOTWITHSTANDING , you are paying through the nose for it.I like that word notwithstanding. I’ve seen and heard it somewhere before , I just forget where!
I understand that many have frustrations regarding petitions. Is anybody really listening? Hard to say. The left achieves more because they organize themselves around causes, basically because they are chronic malcontents. People on the right tend to accept things , far to readily. A case in point is the issue of abortion. Assuming that a right leaning government was able to pass some abortion prohibition, tens of thousands of protesters would be out shutting down highways the next morning. If something of the same magnitude is implimented (like a carbon tax) by a socialist leftist government, we on the right just bitch and whine and put up a sign. Actually, that’s a good slogan for us. Bitch and Whine and put up a Sign. I believe in repitition, lets have a petition. We lose the battle every day because we are stuck inside the present day paradigm. Most of us recognize it, we just don’t know how to change it. We definitely need some "outside the prison cell " thinking.
As others have said, Anonymous, you don’t have to be here. I would suggest however that you stay and provide some positive feedback, or better yet, do something pro-active. Bitching and whining is leftist mentality. Activism . On the right, we should be pro-activists. We need to learn a completely new playbook because what we are doing is just failing . each time , everytime.

CHRISTOPHER, good one , you’ve got every body talking
The looney left have such weak points and misleading to lies about Saskatchewan pipe leak , causing deaths .
Vancouver Ecco elites , careful what you wish for , I say ignore the port of Vancouver and concentrate on the more northern ports , closer to Asia trade by hundreds of kilometers , then there might be notice taken by the sleepy lefty drones in Frasers’ valley , as it would affect the economy
I grew up there, they’re in this leftard trance and they don’t really now why , except they just know that they really really hate HARPER
I’m almost 70 , and I have this life long friend that is still protesting the Vietnam war

Anonymous, you don’t have to be here. If you don’t like the “asking you for money” and the “rebel petitions”, then leave. No one is stopping you from leaving. Bye! Don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out!

ANONYMOUS”,,, Given your sour attitude about how Ezra runs The Rebel, why don’t you “man up” and start your own BLEEPIN website?… And stop making assumptions about the motivations about why the rest of us participate here… Such assumptions tend to sound very “socialist/we know it all”, ya hear??..

Are you sick of the rebel asking you to do things? Are you like me, and sick of all the rebel petitions? Are you sick of the rebel asking you for money? If so, then you are likely to be a part of the silent majority. Tell the rebel to just stick to the news, and stop begging you to donate, sign a petition, put up a lawn sign, or subscribe to premium membership.

Just ignore Penson , Gordo stopped using that name for a while because we stopped responding. Let him freeze in the dark.

I hope you’re right and enough people show up to counter the paranoid eco-freaks. But Gregor, Justin, Rachel and Kathleen are appealing to the lowest common denominator, namely:
Those that don’t pay taxes
Don’t understand English and therefore don’t understand the issues
Blue collars that couldn’t be bothered with all the eco crap
Small businessmen and women that are too busy managing their employees and growing the economy
Hard workers spending their spare time raising their families instead of analyzing issues such as this
Starry eyed lovers of all that is studly (Trudeaumaniacs)
Put them all together, and you have the 39% you need to blindly vote for whatever you say.
Someday Canadians will take a stand against fascism, but I doubt that now is the time nor the pipeline issue being the turning point. I’m afraid we will have to go down the path Europe is taking before we wake up, but unfortunately, by then it may be too late.

he in this case will motivate people to attend just by being such a brain dead lefty. He is actually one of the faces of the enemy. By being himself he motivates people to stand up against the insanity and support pipeline projects. He reminds me of how frustrated I am that his kind is the only voice at these meetings.

Liza, Sean motivates??? What the hell does he motivate? – other than the desire to shoot!

Sean Penson co

Eh you demonic prick – get that fat wallet out and start paying up! Where do you think your prosperity is coming from? Don’t give us this shit it’s only a Vancouver thing you stupid POS! Go troll the CBC and their progressive idiots you so admire. Oh, did you know the west has declared a “jihad” on you brain dead ph**kers!
commented 2016-08-09 21:30:15 -0400
You are so wrong on all counts Sean that you are not even worth the time. It’s a Canadian issue. BC is not a country, it’s a province and should be doing it’s part.
BC doesn’t have the monopoly on beauty, fresh water, or love of the environment. Bloody elitist snotty lotus lander. I live in BC and I’m sick of attitudes like yours.
You do us a service by just being you Sean boy. A born motivator.

This is far more than simply a Vancouver and Burnaby issue. Pipelines are a national issue that has ramifications for all Canadians; it’s not just the parochial interests of the loopy, grandstanding Mayors Robinson and Corrigan that matter.

Extremist eco-ideologues like Sean Penson are a good reason to show up at the TransMountain hearings to speak up in favour of the pipeline. Penson and his ilk are Luddite anti-development zombie activists who, if they had their way, will wreck our economy and our standard of living. Globally, what they campaign for would result in the further impoverishment and death of millions of the poorest and most vulnerable. And, the crackpot has the nerve to feed us hyperbolic bullcrap about a small spill in Prince Albert “killing us”.
commented 2016-08-09 21:10:24 -0400
Sorry Sean but this most certainly matters to more than just the people of Vancouver and Burnaby.

The Mayors of Vancouver and Burnaby do not have a mandate to oppose any pipelines and tankers in our waters. Did they run on opposing all pipelines and tankers?

Just an FYI, tanker traffic is the jurisdiction of the Federal Government not the mayors of Vancouver and Burnaby.

Tanker statistics on the West Coast
Oil tankers have been moving along Canada’s West Coast since the 1930s.

In 2015, there were about 197,513 departures and arrivals of vessels at West Coast ports. Tankers accounted for about 1487 of them, or 0.75 per cent.

Oil is moved mostly via the following ports:

Prince Rupert

Much of the oil shipped out of Vancouver is transported to and from communities on the B.C. coast. Oil is carried by barges, container ships, ferries, and other types of commercial and private vessels.

No one has died from the pipeline leak in Prince Albert unlike the unfortunate souls who died in Quebec from oil transported by rail.

And if the good people of Vancouver and Brunaby feel the same as you then I highly suggest they all stop driving their cars and heating their homes with petroleum products.

How does it not matter to me, Sean? I’m out of work because Alberta fell through and now I’m stuck on EI and in the Maritimes with people like you. I’m also no longer paying massive amounts of taxes like I used to. I’m a leech now, like you.

No one died in Prince Albert. Stop lying. 50 people died in Lac Megantic though. Oil isn’t going to stop and trying to cut off demand by cutting supply is insane on a level only a liberal could manage. It will not work and it will result in even more LPC graft and in more derailment related deaths.

Dead people aren’t a big deal though when it’s for a liberal cause, right Sean?

This is a Vancouver and Burnaby issue, and it doesn’t matter to anyone else.

Their Worships, the Mayors of Vancouver (Robinson) and Burnaby (Corrigan) have full mandates to oppose any pipelines or tankers in our waters. This past federal election resulted in the decimation of the Conservatives in and around the Vancouver Port Corporation area, especially in very tony North and West Vancouvers.

We do not want any Alberta crude killing us, as that ruptured pipeline has done to the poor people of Prince Albert.
