Rural Albertan crime rises and one town is calling it war

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Living in rural Canada is getting deadlier as residents of a Northern Alberta town describe themselves as being in a war.

But the Liberals aren't making it any easier for us to save our own lives.

Conklin is an oil patch town of about 200 people on the way to Fort Mac, and it is spiraling into lawlessness and crime.

A CBC article detailed the dangers faced by one family who runs an oilfield company, Renegade Gas and Oilfield Services, based in Conklin:

“Terry Mills's truck sped into the yard at 3:45 a.m. MT on Nov. 8, 2018, confronting the thieves who had smashed their vehicles through the chained gate. They were there to steal gas again. Mills nudged one of the cars with his hood then ducked when he noticed the rifle poking through a window aimed at his head. The robbers sped off, but Mills and a security guard were soon speeding after a black car on the snowy highway.”

Now, this could be the scene in any small town community on the prairies these days because the crime rate is 38 percent higher in rural Alberta than it is in urban areas, according to a recent report released by Statistics Canada.

Criminals know that for rural Canadians when seconds count, the police are minutes away.

However, in places like Conklin, it's even worse. The closest RCMP detachment is 140 kms away, approximately an hour and a half drive.

The CBC article about Conklin’s crime plague highlighted another problem: Canadians cannot defend themselves with firearms without risking serious charges.

“That's when he started popping shots,” Mills recalled. “We're on the phone with the RCMP from Lac La Biche. And I told them, they're heading their way. They should intercept him. And then I said the guy was shooting at us. The officer said 'If you shoot at him, I'm going to charge you with manslaughter.' I said I'm not shooting at him. He's shooting at us.”

To combat rising crime rates, the Liberals have passed overreaching gun legislation, Bill C71. The law subjects lawful firearms owners to increased scrutiny and background checks and, based on demographics of gun ownership, unfairly targets those who are most likely to be victimized by rampant criminality: rural Canadians, and especially those in isolated communities like Conklin.

C-71 will do nothing to inconvenience the criminals who shot at Terry Mills as he was on the line with the police that night.

But if Terry Mills owns a rifle, his life just got a little harder.

Wait until Trudeau and his gang of Islamo-terrorists open the globalist floodgates to endless hordes of Somalians into Alberta

Show me a Politician that can be proven to be forthright and honest and I will show you God.

Did Ford ever mean anything he said or did he lie to Ontario from the beginning? He didn’t cancel SOGI like he promised either.
People are getting sick to the back teeth of these scum politicians.

The Final Canadian Election has already been and gone, it was the election of Justin Trudeau. Any future election will be a farce because Trudeau has opened Canada’s door for Globalism. The only possible way out of this situation would be to resort to violence but violence involves the spilling of blood, are we prepared to go that far.
In my opinion, we had better be prepared, than die like the Lambs.

Andrew Stephenson the Muslim who used a bat on my stepson broke the law and he was not charged.
commented 2019-06-28 02:32:12 -0400
Andrew Stephenson when you are isolated and have a family to protect you may feel different. And in this case why should the business owner just let his livliehood be destroyed by scumbags?
commented 2019-06-28 02:21:48 -0400
Andrew Stephenson you are now a mind reader? Get real, you do not know, why should anyone have to assume that risk for the criminals benefit? This is partly due to your lack of REAL experience with addiction, an addict will kill you for a fix.

..but back on track here. We’re on our own.

https://www.extension.purdue.edu/eden/ruralsecurity/planning.html Unless you are being blatantly targeted like Conklin is, and are instead dealing with the odd back country thief, there are some measures we can take. Big dogs help too.

I feel for the people in Conklin. It sounds hellish, when you can’t even take your kid to the lake to go fishing because you fear for your personal safety. With machinery stolen and constant break in’s, insurance to compensate and replace what can be replaced must be through the roof.

Liza Rosie,
Thank you.
You have a nicer way of getting your point across than I do because I am so filled with RAGE and CONTEMPT FOR TRUDEAU AND HIS ENTIRE CORRUPT, THIEVING , NAZI/TERRORIST TREASONOUS CULT/REGIME!
As I said a few months back, he is going to ramp up his hate, disdain, contempt, corruption, lies, deceit, theft, attacks, against us as we near the election and that is exactly what he is doing.
What astonishes me is the fact HE HAS ABSOLUTELY NO SHAME, HONOUR OR MORALS! And he seems PROUD OF THIS!!
He had the LUXURY of growing up in an ELITE , family here in one of the most free, democratic, sovereign, prosperous nations on the planet and yet he has no respect,, or gratitude for those responsible for the great country (former country now) in which he was born and raised!
His own father was a NAZI and REFUSED TO FIGHT FOR US DURING WWII and so ran and HID until finally re-emerging in NAZI CLOTHES AND WAVING NAZI FLAGS AND STILL HE WAS VOTED IN AS PRIME MINISTER NOT ONCE BUT TWICE!!
That alone should have scared the HELL out of us and had us DENYING JUNIOR THE MAJORITY VOTE AS PRIME MINISTER!1
junior TOLD US HE WAS A NAZI, COMMUNIST, MUSLIM , RACIST AND HATED EVERYTHING AND EVERYONE CANADIAN and STILL he got in!
I used to think we were a well educated, relatively intelligent nation however , WAS I WRONG!! The whole world is laughing at and vilifying us as the sock puppet continues to let us bleed out after destroying the entire former country and the lives of we canadians.
Our children and grandchildren are not going to have a future much less anything to live for and no one seems to care!
I don’t get it!
are all canadians in suicide mode? do they believe the horrific lies about us along with the terrible names we are being called by those who we PAY TO SERVE AND PROTECT US??
In my opinion, THERE NEEDS TO BE A BIG PUBLIC HANGING ON PARLIAMENT HILL AND CANADA DAY SHOULD HAVE BEEN THAT DAY BECAUSE THERE IS NO MORE CANADA AND ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO CELEBRATE!
I am ASHAMED to call myself a Canadian, and yet my forefathers helped build this former nation and in fact have throughout it’s history HAVE LAID THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE FOR US, CANADA AND OUR FREEDOMS ( including family members today as well) , and FOR WHAT?

it isn’t even OUR LAND ANYMORE and all because of a twisted, narcissistic, mentally ill, marxist sociopath who actually believes HE OWNS CANADA, US AND EVERYTHING WHICH IS /WAS OURS !
funny canuks are in the streets protesting the loss of some of their entitlements but NOT A PEEP AT THE DEATH OF THEIR NATION AND THE SLIDE DOWN THE THIRD WORLD ISLAMIC SEWER WHERE NO FREEDOMS, PEACE, DEMOCRACY WILL EVER BE AGAIN!

Separation for Alberta NOW !!!!!
-—————————————-
But if an independent Alberta does not have a first and second amendment, what would be the point? 1st and 2nd amendments for an independent West.

Once again,Common Sense, Andrew is displaying the Three Pillars of Leftiedom.
Andrew drags out the same old arguments that have been disproven over and over again because he/she does not want the truth. The question is why does he/she/it want to believe and disseminate lies?
commented 2019-06-27 17:24:58 -0400
At that point there will be a lot less chance of self defense of any kind in rural or city.
Sorry. I digressed.

I agree with EVERYONE promoting Maxime Bernier!! He is the ONLY TRUE CANADIDAN OF THE ENTIRE LOT !
Simply put, the conservatives, ndp, liberals and greens are ALL THE SAME AND HAVE THE EXACT SAME AGENDA AS TRUDEAU AND CANADA ALONG WITH WHAT IS LEFT OF WE CANADIANS WILL NOT SURVIVE IT!
Anyone voting other than Maxime, is a TRAITOR TO CANADA AND WE CANADIANS JUST AS ALL FOUR PARTIES AND THEIR LEADERS ARE!
again, this may well be the LAST ELECTION and while I truly believe it is completely corrupt, rigged, bought and paid for, if we wish to live and live peacefully, free and prosperous, we canadians have NO CHOICE BUT TO BRING TRUDEAU DOWN AND LEAVE THE OTHER PARTIES IN THE DUST!
It is WAR and it is OUR LIVES ANDNATION’ AT STAKE AND SO FAR WE ARE LOSING BECAUSE WE HAVEN’T BOTHERED TO SHOW UP FOR THE FIGHT.
A GUN HASN’T EVEN BEEN PUT TO OUR HEADS YET WE HAVE BOWED TO ALL!
If you don’t give a damn about your own lives, PLEASE THINK OF YOUR CHILDREN, GRANDCHILDREN because the way we are headed , they are not going to have anything to live for!

But the big boy journos think that is just silly talk.
commented 2019-06-27 17:19:03 -0400
Its not just about oil and gas. Its about all natural resources, its about the hard won freedoms Ottawa is telling all of us, that we don’t have a right to anymore. The country is so vast in every way and this government has broken apart the things that held us together. There is no reciprocal respect. I don’t know how anyone in the country has a chance if we don’t find a way tor cordon off or cut ourselves off from the Laurentian elites. Once this UN garbage progresses it will look like France with soldiers in the streets playing whackamole with our heads.

Separation for Alberta NOW !!!!!

Richard Mann and Liza Rosie, I too support Western Canada’s separation. I’m not sure how strong the support is in the Houston BC area. We don’t have oil or gas resources. Our primary industry is forestry, which isn’t a scarce resource across the rest of the Nation. And there definitely wouldn’t any support from the left coast tree hugging eco-freak types. That might mean I’d have to move, but I’d do that in a heart beat if it meant getting away from the insanity.

LYNN COURNOYER, Max said he will have all 338 candidates completing the elections Canada paper work by the end of July. You may get one yet. Almost 300 have completed the process so far. Keep checking the candidates page on the PPC website.

Andrew, list the cities that have total gun bans, and the associated crime rates… I know you won’t because it shows places like Detroit having zero guns, and the highest murder rate anywhere. As for the criminal not hurting people, check out the home invasions, almost every single one involves violence toward the residents. If you are OK with letting criminals come on to your property and steal your things, including fuel, I’m fine with it too, just let them take it because that’s your money to do with what you please. Not mine. You come onto my property to steal from me, you will be met with resistance, the form of which I will leave as a surprise. You are a complete fool who lives in an urban bubble. By the way, where is that proof of your PhD?

PLEASE support organizations that promote Alberta separation”.
I do Richard.

It is time the west – Interior North BC, Alberta, and Sask (all oil and gas producers) show Ottawa that we are absolutely not going to take it anymore – with the resolve to act on it. I know what you are saying but I just want to see how well or badly Bernier does come Oct. Nothing will happen before then.
I have been sporting a Western Separation pin since this latest Trudeau got elected. I’m in.

Ever since I gave up the myth that Scheer was going to stand up for the west or for any Canadian for that matter and resolved to accept that with no respect there can be no federation, I feel freed. Even if Bernier got in or was to manage getting in down the road, some sort of sever from Ottawa would be a prerequisite. He says he would give the provinces more say and keep federal policies to an noninvasive minimum. That might be fine with a leader like Max, but what about the next Trudeau or look alike?
It’s time to consider some kind of substantial shake up so that what is happening now can never happen again. Its kind of hard for people who were born into a free country, to accept dying in a totalitarian Trudeau dystopian post nation state or leaving such a Canada for their offspring.

I keep reading about Max, I voted for him as leader and I still think he is the best leader on the ballet. It’s to bad we do not have a candidate in my riding he would get my vote.

These draconian liberal laws are turning all of us legal firearms owners into instant criminals. We have to fight back and kick this moron out of office. Firearms owners must unite and stand together at the polls.
