Who really has the power to shut down Energy East hearings?

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Montreal hearings for Energy East have been shut down over complaints against two National Energy Board members and a handful of protestors. The members are under fire for meeting with former Premier Jean Charest who was working with TransCanada at the time of that meeting.

The Board has released a statement explaining the halt to hearings is the result of security concerns after a violent disruption and also due to motions being filed for the recusal of the two panel members that met with Charest.

A group of unruly protestors barged into the first session held in Montreal and charged the table where panelists were seated. The protestors were arrested and the hearing didn’t take place.

Outspoken anti-Energy East interveners, Mayor of Montreal Denis Coderre, protestors and environmental groups all say that they can’t count on commissioners from the NEB to be impartial, but that doesn’t add up.

Watch as I point out why no one should buy these accusations of an inability to get a fair hearing.

These environmentalists talk about catastrophic climate change, I talk about catastrophic levels of cronyism at a cost to the Canadian economy and our way of life.

The real take away here is now that the Liberals and NDP have some sway, these processes will be stacked at all levels of government against pro-pipeline forces with the use of foreign cash and liberal leverage.

Expect the pipeline approval process to get a lot more difficult than it already is because the fox is definitely in the henhouse.

Lefties stacking the deck. What’s new? Nothing will get approved unless Quebec can get an inordinate transfusion of cash from said approvals!

What needs to be brought to light is what organization paid those mindless thugs to disrupt the NEB hearing in Montreal? If any one of those slobs were to be asked what their protest entailed, they would likely be unable to answer, as their motivation is not ideologically-driven (no matter how misguided), but purely for monetary gain.

I cannot believe the ridiculous charade that’s going on. LISTEN and listen well!
There aren’t going to be ANY pipeline expansions! This is a complete charade.
Gerald Butts is going to shut down the oil sands. Trump could get elected and OK
keystone XL and Justin would call for MORE environmental review. Wake up, Fuck!
You’re not dealing with rational beings here. You’re dealing with the eco-nazi equivalent of islamists. Alberta and Saskatchewan are the non-progressive enemy and no matter how much damage is done to Canada’s economy, they have to be brought down and made to obey the sjw agenda.

All those holding the sign look like a bunch of useless smelly, entitled hippies who have no idea of what keeps a country afloat economically – geeze! – that sounds just like the TruDope / Nutley crew!
They all need to be shipped to the Arctic & left to live in pup tents for the winter – no propane or deisel – they can scrounge for fuel at their site!!
Just a bunch of useless eaters!

I believe that members of the NEB also met with Montreal’s Mayor and Environmental groups ahead of time for the same reason, but apparently that is okay since no one is talking about that.

To all those fuckwads holding their retarded sign:

Mommy’s basement, Daddy’s basement, dormez vous?? Dormez vous???

Under the Libs these pipelines will never see the light of day and it would appear that a good many Canadians – latest polls have the Libs at just over 47% – agree with them. Out here on Bancouver Island the very vocal minority is against all development. The City of Bancouver is even worse. They protest everything. And why oh why can 1.4 million people – First Nations and Metis – hold 34 million people economically hostage? It is beyond logic. Perhaps it is time for the Oil Patch and Trans Canada Pipeline to send a message to Provincial and Federal governments and shut down completely, temporarily at least, and watch the economic chaos ensue.

This is our nations future, our children’s future being bullied out of our hands by people tied to greedy and corrupt organizations from outside of Canada. When will we-start rioting in the streets? Canadians are being attacked on all sides. We no longer have a government that works for its people. Can we have a non-confidence vote please?
