Boo, Nenshi! Calgary draws thousands for weekday pipeline rally

Keean BexteRebel Contributor

Pro-pipeline rallies in downtown Calgary are becoming an almost daily occurrence. 

On Monday, 2,700 men and women showed up to protest the federal Bill C-69 in front of city hall.

I went into the crowd to ask why the people there were angry enough to join the protest and heard a broad range of answers.

After I spoke to attendees, Calgary mayor Naheed Nenshi took the stage and was greeted with loud booing and jeers from the crowd. Calgarians are fed up with having to please the rest of the country before building their own economy, so when Nenshi mentioned Quebec, the crowd booed again.

Right after the protest, all of Calgary's city council was supposed to be at a media scrum.

While several councilors spoke in favour of the rally, their elected socialist counterparts scurried off so they wouldn't have to stand up for their constituents too often in one day. Druh Farrell, Naheed Nenshi and Evan Wooley all left quickly.

They didn't expect me to be patient. I waited to ask Farrell if she regretted her vocal support of the Trudeau Liberals, given how they are now blockading Alberta. Watch the video to see what she says.

Our idiot Trudeau refuses to answer in English to questions posed in English when in Quebec, so why should Menshi get his panties in a twist when no one wants to listen to him speak French in Calgary?

Baby Doc May believe that Quebecers are better, but they aren’t. Nenshi should learn this too. Btw, since when does Quebec care to listen to any one else, especially if they speak English? Well, it does listen if there is free money for Quebec.

BTW, I’m in Quebec.

BOOOO! Nenshi!
Looks like he’s getting fatter…on the taxpayer teat!
And even more obnoxious, if that’s even possible!
And I don’t even live in Alberta!

Alberta has other options.
I actually appear in this video – between 1:17 and 1:57 – summarizing Alberta’s options.
Thanks Keean for interviewing me!

Trudeau and his Gang are just setting Canadians up for the race change that will soon take place in Canada. Weakening and dividing the people is just the beginning……..Soon will come the blood.

Calgary really needs to step up. The PC has to suffer a cruel and painful death

Good to see so many turn out. These politicians need to quit with the scolding. Nobody is in the mood for it.

Wow, Trudeau is talking about globalism and he can’t even keep his country together.

Of course people booed when Nenshi was going to say something in French, it has always been Quebec that has vehemently opposed the Alberta oil and gas industry while gladly taking the 10 billion in Provincial Equalization that comes from the royalties on that oil and gas, so obviously Albertans have anger towards Quebec.
