Vancouver’s “hippie” mayor blocks pipelines — but lets raw sewage flow into Pacific

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Vancouver's False Creek is a popular recreation spot. The city used the area to hold the Concord Pacific Dragon Boat Festival, an event that drew boat teams and visitors from all around the world.

 

But there was one unspoken rule during the festival. No playful paddle splashing, because you might get cholera, dysentery, norovirus, or hepatitis A, and that’s if you’re lucky.

The water is contaminated with raw human sewage and it has been for decades.

According to the city, recreational boaters dump their sewage holds into the waters, but there's a much bigger, more disgusting reason. The province allows untreated sewage to be pumped into the ocean and since False Creek is a dead end, the ocean currents can’t flush away the effluent discharge into the long suffering waterway.

False Creek contains four times the levels of pollution deemed safe for swimming. It's an E coli petri dish that often smells like sewage. The city, under the leadership of left wing environmentalist Mayor Gregor Robertson, has been promising to clean it up for years, but nothing’s been done.

Alas, the issue of BC using the Pacific as a septic tank was lost in the shuffle by a government focused on blocking the expansion of a pipeline from Alberta that has never leaked into the ocean after nearly 70 years in operation.

But that's because modern environmentalism isn’t about nature or conservation, it’s about foreign funded radicals blocking fossil fuels and Mayor Robertson, ignoring the health hazards of raw sewage in the ocean, did just that.

Watch as I show you who who paid the Mayor to block an Alberta pipeline.

The Trans Mountain pipeline isn’t built, but neither are the sewage pipelines, and that’s what happens when your Mayor works for foreign-funded anti Canadian organizations instead of the people of Vancouver.

Well, there’s the “nut” of it… While “talking green” Mayor Moonbeam allows this to continue to happen, and actually, within the boating community the “jungle telegraph” among boaters has always know about this problem… But hey, False Creek is a very trendy place, close to downtown, and a great place to moor if you are visiting Vancouver… And if the guy on the next pier over is “flushing” why not you?… Ditto for Inner Harbour in Victoria… Both cities are beset by greenies who look the other way about their “toilet habits”… Oh Look! There’s an Orca pod!…

I worked in the logging industry in BC back when Greenpeace was being paid by Georgia Pacific Forest Industries to attack the BC forest industry. One of the many bizarre restrictions put on the forest industry by the NDP government back then was due to a complaint from the cruise ship industry. Cruise ships sailing from Seattle to Alaska complained that their guests sometimes saw areas that were logged and it was upsetting them. So the BC government passed a rule that said no logging could be done within eyesight of the coast waterways. ( Now here’s the kicker ).
Both Alaska and the state of Washington have rules in place back then that prohibited cruise ships from emptying their effluent tanks in state coastal waters but the Province of BC never did- ( don’t know if they have any yet ?) So the cruise ships that complained about the view of logging on the coast discharged their effluent tanks while going up and down BC’s Inside Passage. These tanks didn’t just discharge human waste ; they discharged all manner of fluids- dry cleaning fluid , copy machine fluid , etc.
If what Sheila says is true ( and I have no reason to doubt her) then BC probably still doesn’t have any rules prohibiting cruise ships that don’t even stop in BC and spend a dime from emptying their tanks.
That province is pure granola – all flakes and nuts.

Re TURD person, put the name Gregor on the Turds back.

John Day…..The environmentalists in Victoria have a 6 foot TURD costume that gets instant attention from kids to Seniors. I believe its name is Poope. If someone could rent Poope for 2 weeks and wear it in the False Creek area, the local and world press will flock to it. It never fails.

It would be a great scandal for the piece of Sh-t Gregor Robinson to leave office with.

Where is David Suzuki? He only lives around the corner from False Creek – a 10 minute walk to his place.
I bet he doesn’t go in the water in front of his place in Kitsilano.

This story needs to be retweeted and reposted everywhere. If these green Gestapo really cared about their shores, they’d be building treatment plants for the sewage. After all, Edmonton treats its sewage so why can’t larger cities like Vancouver and Victoria do the same.

These are the people who will get us all killed and they will follow shortly after.

This story needs to be repeated over, and over until American news agencies pick it up.
When tourists stop coming due to bad press, things might change.
Perhaps a documentary with a mini sub filming the outflow pipe.
Big posters of the outflow pipe on city hall steps, might get media attention.

Green Meanies are such hypocrites.

This is a true definition of a shit-hole country, and we did it to ourselves. Way to go B.C. You are a shitty representation of this country—sucks 2bu.

Great report Sheila.
Why are residents putting up with this?!! I’m surprised tourists visiting the area don’t post on social media telling everyone what a toilet it is!!!
