His ‘reward’ for speaking the truth is to be called a ‘racist’ by the same pathetic fools who have brought our country to such a point of crisis.
Here’s the Andrew Scheer speech that is apparently so ‘controversial’:
“Standing between our country and prosperity is a small group of radical activists, many of whom have little to no connection to First Nations communities. A bunch of radical activists who won’t rest until our oil and gas industry is entirely shut down.” #cdnpoli
As you can see and hear in the video, Scheer didn’t say anything that was controversial.
Everything he said was simply basic Canadian common-sense.
The protesters generally don’t represent the Wet’suwet’en, since all the elected chiefs, a majority of the hereditary chiefs, and 85% of the community support the Coastal GasLink Project. So Scheer is 100% correct there.
And the activists are certainly ‘radicals,’ since there have been instances of infrastructure being sabotaged, not to mention the fact that the blockades are illegal, and the blockaders are ignoring court injunctions.
So, on the facts, Scheer is 100% correct.
And we both know that behind the scenes, away from the media manipulation, the vast majority of Canadians agree with what Andrew Scheer said.
The blockades are illegal, and the rule of law must be applied equally to all Canadians.
Scheer’s position is reasonable and balanced.
Meanwhile, it’s Justin Trudeau and the NDP who are totally out of step with Canadians, and the Liberal government are pushing an extremist position that allows a small group of radical extremists to silence the voices of Indigenous Canadians, and imperil our entire economy.
