Gordon Campbell erupts in anger over death of Enbridge pipeline!

Well,a very interesting display of anger displayed by Gordon Campbell in the BC legislature, you could see the smoke coming from his ears, a show of venom directed towards First Nations, all environmental groups,the people of British Columbia, yes,even to the world!

An amazing development occurred yesterday,every single First Nation swung a unified ax at Gordon Campbell, a well timed assault, First Nations weren`t speaking hyperbole but they had researched oil tanker traffic,they paid for extensive studies to analyze the risk reward of the Enbridge pipeline, and the bottom line is, the reward is a handful of short term jobs, the risk is great, all studies point to the fact that daily oil tanker traffic in the 4th most dangerous waterways in the world would result in the inevitable oil spill, all studies stated that it was not a matter of if a spill occurred but when!


The project is officially dead, Gordon Campbell`s green credentials have been exposed for the world to see, a sham, a phony greenwash premier has shown his inner vile and disdain towards all that is British Columbia,in fact Gordon Campbell made the unholy statement that ....:Bringing tar sand oil to the west coast of BC and shipping it to Asia was a way of making the world greener, the hilarity of that statement even has supporters like Tzeporah Berman shaking her head.


You see friends, there is not one environmental group on earth who will endorse this project, not one First Nation that will endorse, 80% of BCers will never endorse this project, the world will denounce Canada over this project, the greenwash from Gordon Campbell has reached a new level, on the 21 anniversary of the Exxon Valdez spill, oil still coating the rocks in Prince William sound, fish,bird and sea bottom life have still not recovered from the spill, Exxon Mobile has still not paid the court awarded settlement for the spill, appeal after appeal from one of the richest companies in the world, double hulled ships spill oil every year, in fact 80% of all oil tanker disasters are caused by human error, technology can`t stop human error...


The same waters Gordon Campbell wants to put giant oil tankers have taken two vessels to the bottom of the sea in very recent times, including one of our own ferries familiar with the area,the Queen of the North...and there was another grounding of a tanker last year in the southern Georgia Strait, the Hebei Lion, we were lucky it grounded on a reef in a rising tide, if the tide had been falling we would have had a environmental disaster on our hands.


The laughable statement by Gordon Campbell that a pipeline bringing dirty tar sand to the west coast for shipment to Asia was about greening the world has shown the world what Gordon Campbell is, a moron, a greenwash idiot who has insulted the intelligence of the world,a man who has treated First Nations as fools by making that statement, at a time when the world is pushing for green solutions, at a time when the world`s climate is in flux due to interference and human pollution, Campbell put his foot in his mouth and made BC the laughing stock of the world, at a time when we advertised to the world the virtue of Super Natural BC, with pictures of Orca,pictures of pristine oceans,soothing music, Gordon Campbell threw all that good will away by raging and venting at First Nations for ending any possibility of the Enbridge pipeline!


First Nations know, we know, local coastal town folks know, an oil tanker accident in inside waters of British Columbia would extinct hundreds of species, the coast would be dead for hundreds of years, animals,Orca, herring,shellfish would be gone for decades probably gone forever, for the sake of the Oil and Gas industry Gordon Campbell is prepared to kill off the BC coast for generations, your greenface is gone, your true inner disdain towards all that is sacred to First Nations and coasters have been exposed, that genie can`t be put back in the bottle!


One accident, one collision with a cruise ship,one collision with a offshore windmill, one drunken Captain, one act of terrorism and Super Natural BC turns into oil slick central, the eagle and bear loss, the loss of Salmon, the work of hundreds of environmental groups, a way of life for First Nations that have lived on the coast for thousands of years Gone, destroyed,ruined for eternity for the sake of a sunset industry.(For a complete detailed story on oil tanker disasters,statistics,a good read here)http://powellriverpersuader.blogspot.com/2009/11/it-cant-happen-again-can-it.html


Indeed friends, Gordon Campbell`s true colours were on display, his anger, his inner hatred of the environment, Gordon Campbell couldn`t contain his anger as First Nations and studies and stubborn facts have killed the Enbridge pipeline forever,yes friends the Enbridge pipeline is over,that is what brought the premier`s anger to a boiling point, First Nation`s people from Sasktachewan to the BC coast, a vow of civil dis-obedience,every legal challenge, a water blockade where First Nations would surrender their lives to stop the project, with full support from every environmental group,from Greenpeace,David Suzuki, even Tzeporah Berman won`t endorse the Enbridge pipeline, and the protest will span the world if it came to that.


It`s a good day today my friends, premier Gordon Campbell has been shot down,he knows,the BC Liberal cabinet knows it, premier Campbell is resigning,he has zero credibility and zero clout, any tar sand use can head south to the USA the way it has for years, Gordon Campbell will have to be content with shipments of coal to Asia, the pipeline is dead, Gordon Campbell is morally dead, I have known that for years, but yesterday in the people`s house Gordon Campbell showed the world his true colours, a oily black slick politician whose only green is taxpayers money in his pocket!

Let's hope that no amount of money, or promises of thousands of jobs can change their minds. You know that's what the liberals next move is - so do they.

Time to stop the IPPs. They're a total public ripoff. BC Hydro belongs to the people of BC, not the private producers and multinationals.

Shawn Graham in a attempt to save the New Brunswick Liberals has cancelled the sale of NP Power...
But if he gets re-elected NB Power goes back on the chopping block,NB has a Provincial election in September, NBers are smart,Shawn Graham committed political suicide, his last minute come down can`t save his political skin,or the party`s skin.

Shawn Graham thinks he can still get re-elected,he`s wrong,the people of NB know,if Graham has a 4 year mandate before an election NB power would be back on the chopping block!

Good on people power,I`m proud of all of you from New Brunswick!

Congratulations New Brunswick.

Hope someone puts that revealing video of Gordo displaying his true colours on YouTube - and that it goes viral.

Lord Gord thinks he can shave and pave all of BC for profit, but in an environmentally way of course!

Good for the First Nation Peoples. Hopefully Campbell will get his butt kicked right off the planet, and Hansen with him. He has destroyed the Liberal government from, one end of the country to the other. What he doesn't screw up, Iggy does. Campbell and Hansen have dragged this province down to the second from the bottom of, the poorest provinces in Canada. Why, the Liberals haven't insisted, that Campbell be replaced, is a mystery. Iggy, looking for a western platform, isn't going to get one, Campbell made sure of that. He even had the gall to support MLA Thornthwaite, for her DUI. He told her not to resign, I guess if she did, he would be obligated to do so, himself. Where do we draw the line here? Will Campbell and Thornthwaite, also support the drunk driver, of whom, killed a young cardiologist and his bride to be? The pair of them should have resigned immediately, or should have been forced out. Campbell and Hansen belong in prison for, the crimes they have committed, against the citizens. Our BC assets, such as the BC Rail, and our natural resources, belong to the BC, citizens, not to him, he should have kept his very dirty hands off of them. The single best thing we can do for this province, would be to get rid of Campbell and Hansen. I have a lot of sympathy, for whoever, has to clean up Campbell and Hansen's mess. BC, has been set back for many, many years.

When Hitler was in his bunker during WW11, he refused, to stop the war to, save his people. He said, the people of Germany deserved to die, for it was their fault the war was lost. So, if Hitler lost, he was taking Germany down with him, and that is exactly what he did. He caused needless deaths. Campbell, will also go down, and he is taking our province down with him.

Campbell and Hansen are underhanded, lying, deceitful sneaks. I am so glad, the Aboriginal People saw through the lying duo. However, the Aboriginals should watch their backs, which we didn't do and we got a knife in ours, many times over. We were stupid enough to forgive his DUI, and he in fact, did stab the citizens in the back. 83% of BC residents, will never, ever forgive Campbell and Hansen for destroying our province, and everyone in it. Their lying, deceit and corruption, will also never be forgiven. They will not ever, get any support from the people of BC. If Campbell and Hansen say white, we will say black. That is how much they are loathed, all they will get is spite.
