Anti-Pipeline Extremists Tamper With Enbridge Line 9

Yesterday the Canadian Press published a story based on a Transport Canada intelligence report outlining the risk of extremists might inflitrate pipeline protests and use them as a cover to engage in violence. The report, of course, is way off mark- most of the pipeline protests I’ve been to and reported on were already led by people who promote and engage in activist violence. Stay tuned for a story listing some of the most extremist activists involved in the anti-pipeline movement.

A video was released this morning by Al Jazeera associate Franklin Lopez of a Quebec protester tampering with Enbridge’s recently reversed Line 9 pipeline. In the video a village idiot named “Jean” simultaneously complains about how “old” Enbridge’s recently inspected and upgraded pipeline is while manually shutting it down. This is outrageously stupid, and not the action one would expect from someone who respects the environment- they know nothing about how pipelines work, shutting it down without notifying the control room could cause serious environmental damage.

Demonstrating the extremism of the rail tampering Swamp Line 9 protests, the person who runs their Facebook page posted the video today with a comment “THIS is how you shut down pipelines!”. All this goes to show that Cara Zwibel of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association was either tragically stupid or tragically corrupt claiming it’s unfair that the government is worried about anti-pipeline extremists. We have a serious problem going on in Canada, morons who stand behind and support the extremist element are a danger to the environment- and to all Canadians in general.

Pipeline protesters are stupidly dangerous...

Pipeline protesters are stupidly dangerous…

    Why aren’t enviro-morons like this in jail where they belong? I’m getting sick and tired of the incompetence and/or stupidity of the RCMP/justice establishment of this country.

    Arrest him and put him a room without heat, iPad, clothes and other necessities that uses oil and grease.

    In the US the police would give this guy a beating, at least remove him from the valve nicely on a good day. And that’s what he should get for tampering with a pipeline that heats my house.
