Stephen Harper`s Supreme Beatdown


Written by Grant G


Native leaders cheered, others had tears of joy running down their faces, ancient lands rumbled and shook, tremors reverberated through to the heart of our Canadian constitution...

Moments after the Supremes thundered down their landmark decision I too celebrated, unanimous, 8 to 0....

Was this ruling political, yes, partly it was, I truly believe that our supreme court went out of their way to send a message to Stephen Harper and his gang of corporate thugs, ..

Ever since Stephen Harper was granted a majority he has governed our country but one way...

"We the oil companies, by the oil companies and for the oil companies"

6 months ago I tweeted several links to Janet Holder, links to Straight Good`s articles and others, these articles highlighted Enbridge`s lies and crimes against humanity, she wouldn`t respond back to any of my tweets, except one, one of my last tweets to Enbridge`s Janet Holder was...

You will never get northern gateway built, never

Janet Holder responded by favoriting my tweet......What Janet Holder did by favoriting that tweet was mock me, and the reason she mocked was simple, the National Energy Board was corrupted, the panel was in Enbridge`s back pocket, and...And Stephen Harper declared well before the NEB made their ruling that regardless of what finding or ruling they make,  Harper and his cabinet gave themselves the right to overrule any and all decisions, so even when Enbridge was found to have lied, falsified reports, used people`s names without permission, gave incomplete answers and had many pipeline breaches during the review period they knew, Enbridge and Janet Holder knew the go-ahead decision was already in the bag, ...That`s why she mocked me...even last week when Janet Holder was interviewed by Michael Smyth she couldn`t help but open her fat mouth and say....and I quote...


________________

Holder, sounding more upbeat as she talks about the future, predicted the opposite.
“The silent majority is starting to speak out,” she said. “As people start to see things unfold, as we meet all our conditions, they will say, ‘Oh, yeah. I have more confidence now. I’m willing to put my hand up and say this should happen, provided it’s done right.’ It’s the environment first, no question.”
When will construction begin?

Holder said the company expects to defeat its opponents in court, satisfy all pre-construction conditions, and get shovels in the ground by the fall of 2015.

“That’s our plan,” she said. “We believe we can get there.”

______________________________

Janet Holder had the NEB in her back pocket, Stephen Harper and his cabinet, through advertising $dollars Enbridge had the Vancouver Sun...Global BC..even media whores like Bill Good and mental stumps like Harvey Oberfeld were in Enbridge`s corner....

Today on CTV noon news hour Susan(fingernails on chalkboard) Anton spoke on this historic game changing ruling....the only thing that spewed from Anton`s mouth hole was hypocrisy!...

Susan Anton uttered nonsense, ...We as a provincial government don`t believe in litigation, we believe in negotiations and talking, not litigation...

Unbelievable, these BC Liberals do nothing but litigate and fight court rulings to the bitter end, teachers dispute, class-size and composition, the illegal HEU contract shredding that Gordon Campbell fought through to the supreme court of Canada where he finally lost, lost big, that`s where the teachers dispute is headed too...Remember Basi/Virk and BC Rail..."we can`t comment it`s before the courts"    Wally stonewally Oppal......boggles the mind how someone so IQ deficient could end up as our provincial attorney general...

The supreme court, 8 to 0....5 of the supreme court judges were appointed by Stephen Harper, that thud noise you heard was Harper`s jaw hitting his desk...

The Supreme court judiciary, whether they be left, right, center or pure law-minded souls they have one thing in common, all of them are well educated and attuned to the obvious Stephen Harper assault upon everything Canadians value..

Decency, respect, Democracy, and the environment, seeing Harper and his henchmen through guile, through secrecy, buried in hideous Omni-bus bills, waterways left unprotected, species at risk left to fend for themselves, decades of hard-fought environmental protections gutted, all to enable the movement of heavy oil..


Ever since Stephen Harper was granted a majority he has governed our country but one way...

"We the oil companies, by the oil companies and for the oil companies"

The supreme court was left with no choice, Stephen Harper and big oil had to be stopped, the court made a ruling with no ambiguity, it was as clear as day, the precedence has been sent, the Haisla and Haida can establish historic and ongoing use of all the lands around Kitimat, an environment that to this day still feeds the Nations, ...Ambiguity be gone, not just consultation but accommodation and consent, without consent .......(Still feel like mocking me Janet Holder?)

Without consent Enbridge`s northern gateway is dead, still dead, forever dead and no, there is no eminent domain and or national do or die situation for a Chinese owned oil pipeline....A pipeline and oil tanker project that can destroy, extinguish and take away what is now there, wildlife, salmon, kelp and fertile waters...

Our Supreme court judges had no choice but to grant Canadian First Nations extraordinary powers..

How else do you stop a deranged Prime Minister who governs..

but one way...

"We the oil companies, by the oil companies and for the oil companies"

No doubt about it.

Little stevie and the nothern neocons have been put on notice: Fascism is not on for Canada and thugs are not going to be allowed to run roughshod over all that we hold dear.

Very big decision indeed.

I wonder how Steve will get rid of the Supreme Court?

Grant, what's your old friend Alex Tsukumis up to these days?

No one cares what AGT is doing, and this isn`t the place or post to discuss it.

During Gordon Campbell's reign of terror. Many BC people warned, Harper was a snake in the grass. Harper and Campbell worked very hard, dismantling BC. Campbell thieved and sold everything of value out of BC, he got his dirty hands on. Harper rewarded Campbell the post as, High Commissioner to the U.K. Christy Clark is just another Campbell, wearing a skirt.

F.N. and all the people of BC, still have to watch our backs, for Harper and the BC Liberals treachery. Just when you think they couldn't possibly get any lower, they do.

Do you think the FIPA agreement will have any effect with or over China's ownership of the pipeline,if it is not going to be built.

Grant G said...

FIPA will have no bearing on Enbridge`s northern gateway, the pipeline proposal was put forward before FIPA existed, China`s 49% ownership of Enbridge`s northern gateway pipeline proposal was before FIPA existed, there is no retroactive claims...

China joined with Enbridge KNOWING there was no guarantee..

Cheers

This is a good decision for First Nations people and a good day for Canada.There is hope now to save our province and stop the ravaging and mass pilfering of resources belonging to this province and it's people.
The likes of Stephen Harper,Christy Clarke and their corporate partners will retaliate but to no avail and the course is set for their demise.
Better days on the horizon.
My congratulations to the native peoples and their victory.

Headline: How on earth can Israel tolerate this filth from B’nai Brith Canada?
Four million Canadians carrying the anti-Semitic ‘disease’? We’ve heard this kind of despicable propaganda before. By Robert Fisk

"Not long ago, I was handed the most outrageous, vile, dishonest and slanderous calumny uttered against the people of Canada. It was contained in a full-page advertisement in the National Post (founder, Conrad Black), a newspaper handed out – free, I’m happy to say – on my Air France flight out of Toronto. Here is the headline: “Almost 4 million Canadians are afflicted by this disease.”
Beneath this title is a half-page, very blurred and uncaptioned colour photo of a large crowd – they could be football supporters, rush-hour commuters in Vancouver, you name it; they are mostly white males but include women and with at least one dark-skinned man close to the camera. Beneath the picture, this incredible ad continues: “Left unchecked, it [the disease] can result in violence tendencies. Many times, those infected haven’t been diagnosed and may pass it on to their children, grandchildren, colleagues or friends. Please help stop the spread of this disease before it contaminates your community.”

This is frightening stuff, of course. Could this refer to some of the six million Canadians who may be living with HIV/Aids? Or the 4.5 million Canadians affected by arthritis? Or the 2.5 million Canadians believed to have diabetes? Or even some of the estimated 7.8 million Canadians treated for depression each year? Nope. This is far more serious. For the “disease” afflicting “almost 4 million Canadians” is “anti-Semitism” and this disgusting advertisement – published without comment by one of Canada’s leading right-wing newspapers – was produced by B’nai Brith Canada and the “Jewish Christian Alliance”.
