UPDATE: Liberals planned for United We Roll, from Antifa to McKenna

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

The Prime Minister’s chief bureaucrats laughed off the potential of Antifa violence against the United We Roll Convoy, exclusive new access to information documents reveal.


HELP FUND REPORTS LIKE THIS

February 20, 2019, the Convoy of 200 trucks, led by central Alberta businessman Glen Carritt reached Ottawa after a week on the road. They had come to protest, among other things, anti-oil and gas bills C-69 and C-48. We embedded Keean Bexte to bring you the other side of the story from inside the convoy. You can see his coverage at RebelConvoy.com.

Once in Ottawa, not a single Liberal politician came out to meet the frustrated truckers and their supporters.

Suspecting that a failure to meet with the convoy didn't mean that the government was not concerned about the convoy, we filed an ATIP into the Privy Council office to find out what the bureaucrats closest to Trudeau were saying and planning as the convoy converged on the nation’s capital.

We received back over 200 pages of documents showing the truckers were treated as a major security threat, but the Antifa goons who greeted them once in Ottawa were treated as a “fun bit”.

Almost immediately once the bureaucrats in the Privy Council Office realized that Glenn Carritt and the gang were serious about bringing their concerns and their trucks to Ottawa, the PCO crisis management cell took the lead with intelligence gathering and security planning, sending out emails to ministries, warning them about the UWR convoy headed to town.

The crisis management cell became aware of a counter-protest, writing in one intel report;

“As requested, our research showed a planned anti-pipeline demonstration. Tuesday at 10 AM- 1 PM, a counter-demonstration will gathering at the 45 O'Connor- World Exchange Plaza”

In a February 17 crisis management cell dossier compiled on both the United We Roll Convoy and the potential for a counter-protest, officials downplay the potential of violence from the counter-protestors:

“Tuesday at 10 AM- 1 PM, a counter-demonstration will be hosted at 45 O'Connor World Exchange Plaza. A group has released a call for actions on social media. They are asking people to organize in Ottawa and in all the cities along the planned route of the truck convoy, from February 14 to 19. The group will be monitoring the convoy's journey through Canada, but have not signaled any plans to intercept the party as of yet.”

Antifa, by then, had already tried to block a Manitoba highway to stop the convoy, one day previous to the date on the dossier.

Then, in the same dossier, officials identify the counter-protest as Antifa:

“The group is comprised of people who are sympathetic to environmentalist, anti-colonialist, and anti-fascist movements.”

A later email from William Simmering of the crisis management cell jokes about the potential confrontation between Antifa and UWR:

“I've attached our latest demo info sheet, updated last night. The fun bit is the counter-protest is gathering at 45 O'Connor (World Exchange Plaza).”

That “fun bit” was Antifa, whose members attacked Keean on Parliament Hill, breaking his phone as police looked on.

Part of the government media strategy was to present the narrative that the United We Roll convoy was racist. The briefing note for media strategy advised ministers to call the group “divisive”:

"We will always support Canadians advocating on behalf of our energy sector. Canadians from coast to coast to coast understand the importance of getting our resources to market. It is essential that this message not be co-opted by divisive language that tries to pit one part of the country or one group of people against another."

Despite estimates being redacted in some parts of the document package, the bureaucrats put the tally of Antifa protesters at over 100. Further emails indicate that the truckers were relegated to the snowed-in areas while Antifa was allowed on the paved and clear parts of Parliament Hill.

This exclusive ATIP at 200 pages long is ten times longer than the 22 pages we got back in access to information requests about the invite of the alleged violent rapist alleged possible Taliban sympathizer Joshua Boyle to the Prime Minister's office.

““In normal times, Alberta’s light sweet crude oil and its SCO sell in Alberta at prices that are about US$2 PER BARREL BELOW WTI.”

Yes, pretty much what I said. Thanks for reading my post, Al. Now it becomes clear why you rely on strawmen so much.

Your article is a bit out of date. As I pointed out the spread has narrowed again due to the quotas. Today, it is twelve dollars ($49 vs $61, although it’s hurricane season and thus the market’s unsettled).

“Why is there a shipping bottleneck? "

Poor investment decisions by the Majors, who built production capacity without securing export capacity? They should be able to handle that themselves. If you can’t export it, you don’t build the factory This is pretty much the only industry that gets away with blaming the government if they build a factory with no way to ship out their product. That’s why people who aren’t paid by the oil companies, generally hate them. They get away with that sort of nonsense.

WCS tends to trend somewhat lower, 10, 20 dollars or so, than WTI, as it’s a lower value product due to the higher processing needs.
-—————————————- “In normal times, Alberta’s light sweet crude oil and its SCO sell in Alberta at prices that are about US$2 PER BARREL BELOW WTI. This reflects the slightly higher quality of these two crude oils relative to WTI which earns them a higher price, but the long distance from Cushing results in a lower price. Diluted bitumen typically sells at a price that is US$12 to $15 per barrel below WTI to reflect its lower quality and the cost of transportation to reach Cushing.

But these are not normal times. Proposed export pipelines have been cancelled (Northern Gateway and Energy East) or delayed by regulatory issues and court decisions (Trans Mountain expansion and Keystone XL). As Alberta’s production has continued to grow from major oil sands projects being completed over the past couple of years (e.g., CNR Horizon, Suncor Fort Hills, Husky Sunrise) the volume of oil Alberta produces has overwhelmed the transportation system. Storage tanks have filled up. Even though refineries in the U.S. want to buy and process our diluted bitumen, we have been unable to get all of it to them.

The price of diluted bitumen has been getting weaker and weaker AS A RESULT – and was recently US$43 per barrel lower than WTI.

Until supply and demand come back into balance, these extremely price wide differentials are likely to persist, costing Alberta’s oil producers an estimated $100 million per day in lost revenue. "

=====

“The leader of Canada’s biggest oil-producing province has declared she sees no long-term future in fossil fuels, predicting Alberta would wean itself off dirty energy within a century.

In an early reveal of her forthcoming new energy policy, Alberta’s Rachel Notley said she would fight climate change by cleaning up the tar sands, shutting down coal-fired power plants, and converting to wind and solar power.

Notley admitted Alberta would be squeezed to fight climate change while protecting jobs in the oil patch at a time of low energy prices. “It’s a bit of a conundrum,” she said."

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/sep/30/no-long-term-future-in-tar-sands-alberta-rachel-notley

All this talk of scaling back the energy sector did nothing to inspire any kind of conidence in Alberta as a place to invest. With the arrival of Notley many major players bailed and set up shop elsewhere.

======

Canada’s oil production is at a record 4.6 million barrels a day, but producers cannot get oil to market because the pipelines that cross into the United States are full. Pipeline construction, particularly in Canada, has not kept up with record output.

Why is there a shipping bottleneck?

Justinidiot and Nutley in charge.

“Wrong. It started after Notley was elected and enacted her disastrous policies to end carbon fuel extraction. And then the double whammy was Justinidiot doing the same with pipelines. "

This is fairly easy to verify, Al (I think you were so excited about your pillar that you forgot to actually check if I was wrong). WTI was averaging about $105-$115/bbl prior to July 2014. It had fallen to $50-55/bbl by February 2015, At this time neither Notley nor Trudeau had taken power. It’s been $50-65 pretty much ever since.

WCS tends to trend somewhat lower, 10, 20 dollars or so, than WTI, as it’s a lower value product due to the higher processing needs. The pipeline constraints really only became a problem last year, and that was alleviated by the production cap, which reduced the spread to about ten dollars.

The American producers suffer less, simply because shale has much lower capital requirements than the bitumen projects prominent in Alberta. Are you going to spend a billion dollars to build a plant that barely breaks even at $40/bbl and which has an amortization period that extends well beyond the expected demand peak, when you can get better oil for $25 from a well that has a five to ten year life span?

Wrong. It started after Notley was elected and enacted her disastrous policies to end carbon fuel extraction. And then the double whammy was Justinidiot doing the same with pipelines.

Why has Texas or North Dakota never suffered the same way and why are they not suffering now? I hear ads on the US radio stations out of ND hiring oilfield works while Alberta remains in a slump. The reason is unlike global warming the economic disaster in Alberta is human caused- The Left strikes again. But because of the…wait for it…Three Pillars of Leftiedom… they never learn from success elsewhere or failure at home and Alberta does not recover. Justinidiot, like his old man, Nazi Boy, hate Alberta. Some kind of Laurentian penis envy it appears.

But what can you expect from someone who believes babies are literally parasites in contradiction to all scientific and medical evidence?

More than likely we will have another Trudeau Government voted to office in October. There just isn’t anyone to vote for, we have no outstanding champion of the people. Our best option at this point is probably The PPC, led by Maxime Bernier. But as much as I would like to see him do well in the election, I just don’t see that happening. Not after the PPC candidate in BC, Laura Thompson lost to Jagmeet Singh. Who stood up and advocated for open borders. This is how bad the political environment has become here in Canada. Canadian citizens will vote for a traitor to their country, over someone who wants to keep Canada a free and sovereign nation.
We have Muslim Brotherhood Members holding seats in our government right now. And there is a strong Muslim influence within the Conservative opposition. We have literally surrendered as a nation. This invasion of our country has been so easy for them it’s shameful. Canadians are fired up about Hockey and Basketball, but not their freedoms or rights. Those they are more than willing to give up.
If Trudeau takes power again, he will act quickly and rip what rights we still have away from us. Confiscation of firearms will probably be enacted before Christmas. We will be flooded at an increased rate by Muslim migrants. And I am expecting a U.N. Military Force will be occupying Canada, as our own military will probably be disarmed as well and then disbanded.
Canadian Culture, Hockey, Pubs, Music, Holidays, Traditions, etc. Will all come to an end. Statues, monuments, our history and religious roots all torn down. Maybe Canadians will awaken at that point, when the Beer Stores close, but by then it will all be way too late. When things are really bad, the power will be off, the store shelves will be empty, companies will shut down, a Sharia police state will exist, conflict will be everywhere and there will be fear in the streets. By then we will be unable to fight back and another member Muslim State will be born.
I don’t hold out a lot of hope for Canada, the young set in particular are not made of the same metal as their ancestors. Even the older ones don’t want to fight for anything, don’t know anything or simply don’t care. We have too many goody two shoes that will put the nation in danger, so they can virtue signal and look superior. They will give all we have to obvious freeloaders rather than help our own. There is going to be a lot of suffering in the very near future. We are not winning on any front.

Ashley Nicholas,
he TOLD us HE ADMIRED THE CHINESE COMMUNIST GOVERNMENT ABOVE ALL OTHER GOVERNMENTS ON THE PLANET well before he was elected!
He TOLD US he was going to import all the Muslim’ ‘refugees’ and he TOLD US he was going to reinstate CITIZENRY FOR TERRORISTS, reinstate CHARITY STATUS FOR TERRORIST FUNDING GROUPS (after Harper had denied these) and he TOLD US WHICH SPECIAL GROUP HE WAS A MEMBER OF AND WHICH HE WAS GOING TO SERVE AND PROTECT OVER CANADIANS AND CANADA!
I warned and warned on this site and others as well as publicly with everyone I spoke with, well before the 2015 illegal election that, if he is voted in,WE WILL NOT BE ABLE TO GET RID OF HIM AND HIS AGENDA WAS TO DESTROY US AND CANADA.
I even suggested within the first year WE CANADIANS SHUT OFF THE TAPS. -(NO WORKING, SHOPPING , PAYING ANY TAXESFOR JUST A FEW DAYS ) BECAUSE IT WAS VERY OBVIOUS FROM THE BEGINNING WE HAD A MONSTER IN OFFICE, but all I got in return was CRITICIZES, TOLD: “WE CAN’T DO THAT, WE’LL LOSE OUR JOBS, HOMES, BE ARRESTED” and so on.
What it comes down to is simply this: Canadians have had it TOO GOOD FOR TOO LONG. Freedoms, rights, a military, sovereignty, peace, laws, protection , entitlements which were demanded and growing every single day, and relative servitude and protection from those we voted in to lead, protect and serve us and Canada. WE NOW HAVE NONE and in fact WE ARE THE MOST VILIFIED, HATED, ATTACKED, IGNORED, ABUSED, PILLAGED in this , which used to be OUR COUNTRY CANADA, now a third world sharia controlled SEWER!
