O.J. Pipelines Staff Raise $10,000 For Daughter Of Fallen Firefighter, Showing The True Heart Of Canadian Pipeline Workers

Employees from the company chipped and raised the money within a week.

We all heard what Justin Trudeau said about Canadian workers being on rural jobs sites for energy projects.

His demonizing and untrue remarks were a disgrace, and even caused a member of the PM Youth Council to resign in protest.

Canadians know how wrong Trudeau was.

And a recent story shared by 650 CKOM in Saskatchewan shows the true heart of Canadian Pipeline Workers (btw, a big thank you to Frank McVeety for bringing this story to my attention):

“Staff at O.J. Pipelines, a company working on the Enbridge Line 3 expansion in southwestern Saskatchewan, are donating $10,000 to Cheyanne Morrison to help with her post-secondary education.

Morrison’s father Darrell was killed Nov. 21 when a passing semi struck him, while he was assisting at a crash site north of Rosetown.

“We heard about the tragedy … and we were working in the same area,” said Paul Stuckless, safety manager at O.J. Pipelines.

“We thought it would be a good idea to raise some money and give to her, maybe perhaps for her education or something else down the road.”

Employees at the pipeline company passed around an envelope, and within a week 500 of them had contributed to a total of $10,000.

That money was deposited in Rosetown to a fund set up for Morrison.”

Volunteer firefighters from Rosetown had helped when 16 O.J. pipeline workers were in a crash, and the pipeline workers wanted to give back.

10 were injured after their bus was hit by a semi, and Stuckless said “We know they’re there when we need them, and we thought we should be there for one of them.” 

That is who Canada’s Pipeline Workers really are, and Canada deserves leaders who recognize the true heart and soul of the citizens who keep our economy and country going day after day.
