‘Anti-petroleum’ movement a growing security threat to Canada, RCMP say

The RCMP has labelled the “anti-petroleum” movement as a growing and violent threat to Canada’s security, raising fears among environmentalists that they face increased surveillance, and possibly worse, under the Harper government’s new terrorism legislation.

In highly charged language that reflects the government’s hostility toward environmental activists, an RCMP intelligence assessment warns that foreign-funded groups are bent on blocking oil sands expansion and pipeline construction, and that the extremists in the movement are willing to resort to violence.

    Unfortunately, the RCMP’s common sense assessment is not shared below the border, where Obama has put the envirofascists in charge.

      RCMP common sense is an oxymoron. Don’t think that this will make any difference the cops won’t do anything to uphold the law as a matter of fact they will use it to write their own laws to further their police state agenda.

    The fact that many of these ‘environmental groups’ brag about Saudi and Russian support probably has the Queens Cowboys a little nervous.

    Environmentalists get in the way of real jobs for real people.

    Environmentalists suck life out of the atmosphere. They can all kiss my rosy pink bum.

    The greatest security threat to Canada comes in the form of the government’s ‘Standing Senate Committee on National Security and Defense’. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VzvJI7l4bLU

    Progressive/Marxist demonstrators have claimed for years that baracading private property and property crimes( smashing things) in general are totally legitimate forms of protest. as wrong as they are the problem is that our police will no longer enforce existing law against them. It was first seen at Caledonia, with many iterations the latest is the reluctance of the police ,even with a court order !, to arrest any blockaders in the Burnaby pipeline “protest” These agitators are terrorists and are funded by foreign money. Unfortunately with out Sun News, the leaders will never be exposed. they go to the same Cocktail parties as the media.

    They are just now discovering this? Maybe better late than never provided it is followed up with applied action across the country, which has not been the case to date.
