    In Canada they are experiencing protests by the Mohawk Nation against Container trains and so forth. You will find that these Protestors have gone beyond what is acceptable into actively putting their lives at extreme risk trying to detail a 450,000 pound 10,000 HP lead engine. Or trying to pile pallets under the wheels of the passing train which itself is incredibly stupid. In the area they are also burning cars placed on the tracks.

    The problem with these protesters is many, the number one problem? That train does not stop for anyone. It is fortunate that the protestors do not have any knowledge of trains at all so that is not a bad thing.

    Without further ado.

    Most of these protestors aren't even natives, they're just spoiled, angry kids looking for a bandwagon to jump on. 95% of them are 100% clueless as to what they're even protesting against.


    I don't want to get political but I have a gut feeling some major #### is about to hit the fan up here. We have a leader that's probably off colouring his McDonald's placemat in the McPlay Place while everything goes to ####. We've got 10's of thousands of oil and gas workers in Alberta and thousands of forest industry workers in BC that have lost their jobs and are on the verge of losing everything. We're all getting sick of these protestors ####ing up something that's going to help get some jobs going.

    I appreciate your thoughts, I have no political knowledge of whatever they were trying to protest. With incidents like this its not a protest anymore but probably domestic terrorism. If they think to bring myself to their cause whatever it was thats not the proper action to do it. They are only going to get themselves destroyed under the wheels of a given train if they don't quit it. And I for one do not wish that on anyone.

    And that is exactly why I'm sick of these clowns. If you want to protest, by all means protest. Just be SENSIBLE about it. When you block rail lines, roadways, port entrances, try to derail/burn trains you just make yourselves look like idiots and piss everyone in the country off.

    A great number of these "protesters" are nothing but anarchists and terrorists and many of them are professionals and are being funded by American interests... specifically the Tides and Rockefeller Foundations.

    That would be one way to deal with them. ;)


    The courts need to be imposing the punishment on the books, especially Criminal Code of Canada 66(2) Concealment of identity (unlawful assembly):

    Every person who commits an offence under subsection (1) while wearing a mask or other disguise to conceal their identity without lawful excuse is guilty of

    (a) an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding five years; or

    (b) an offence punishable on summary conviction.

    Criminal Code - Unlawful Assemblies and Riots

    I'd like to see the protesters live without, the items and resulting goods, they are protesting against..


    Protest against carbon. Live without gasoline and heating fuel.
    Protest against a train. Live without the goods a train transports.
    Protest against tree harvest. Live without toilet paper.

    Then we'll see how pure their protest is.
     
    misterG and Flat Earth Trucker Thank this.

    Ive had indications here and there where organizations such as what is mentioned is behind the scenes with money support or fleets of buses etc to make the troubles happen the way they do. It would behoove the Government to trace back to the source of the Protestor's funding or logistical support and then do a clean sweep taking out the bigger cancer.
