A pipeline construction site was attacked in British Columbia causing major damage.
The attack fits into a pattern of similar attacks going back many years to prevent the construction of pipelines on native lands in Canada. In 2020 protests spread nationwide:
Demonstrators have blocked passengers rail lines connecting the major cities of Montreal-Ottawa-Toronto, causing at least 223 trains to be cancelled through Thursday. Over 34,000 passengers have been affected, Via Rail reported.
Police also arrested 43 protesters preventing access to the Vancouver ports on Monday, and more were arrested in nearby Delta.
Protestors have also occupied government buildings and held rallies in cities from St John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador to Calgary, Alberta.
Related protests included arson incidents at more than 50 churches in 2021.
Don’t expect Ottawa to seize bank accounts and arrests donors of organizations that have supported the protest since Trudeau is sympathetic to their cause.
Likewise outrage from the US media is highly selective. They support rights of protestors when the agree with them, but they call for draconian response when they do not.
Expect a yawn from Trudeau about the most recent attack.
Free speech and freedom of assembly are basic human rights. They are not just for people who support causes you agree with.
Wow…talk about a dip ■■■■ that speaks out of both sides of his mouth…Trudeau is the very definition. I really have to wonder if he’ll be reelected PM? I can’t believe Canadians would go for that, after all the crap they’ve witnessed from him over time.
It also appears the the fake news MSM has ticked off the “indigenous” people in Canada.
I see parallels between the First-Nations protests in Canada have a lot of parallels with the BLM protests in the US. They have the approval and protection of government officials and allies in the state-controlled media.
My understanding is that Trudeau did little to interfere with the First-Nation protests even when they became violent. He never seized the assets of individuals and organizations that supported them. He never declared a national emergency. He never used hackers to dox donors.
