Violent, weapon-wielding, left-wing terrorists last week attacked an energy company in Western Canada, imperiling employees’ lives, causing millions in damages, and setting equipment alight. Yet Prime Minister Justin Trudeau doesn’t appear poised to use his Emergencies Act powers — declared earlier this week and approximating martial law — against them. Those he’s reserving for the peaceful truckers protesting his draconian COVID restrictions, who now must endure violence against them perpetrated by authorities.
The Gateway Pundit reported on the non-government terrorism, writing that “Canadian company Coastal Gaslink is building a 670 kilometres (416 miles) pipeline project across British Columbia to safely deliver natural gas across the Canadian province…. The project will help heat Canadian homes in the long dark winters. But pro-China leftists hate the idea and want the pipeline shut down” — by any means necessary.
This brings us to what some presumed Trudeau voters did just days ago. As the Vancouver Sun reported Thursday:
Violence has erupted at a Coastal GasLink pipeline work site in Northern B.C., leaving workers shaken and millions of dollars in damage.
Very early Thursday, just after midnight, Coastal GasLink security called RCMP [Royal Canadian Mounted Police] for help, reporting it was under attack by about 20 people, some wielding axes.
RCMP Chief Supt. Warren Brown, commander for the north district, called the attack a “calculated and organized violent attack that left its victims shaken and a multi-million dollar path of destruction.”
Coastal GasLink said in a statement the attackers surrounded some of its workers in a “highly planned” and “unprovoked” assault near the Morice River drill pad site off the forest service road.
“In one of the most concerning acts, an attempt was made to set a vehicle on fire while workers were inside,” said the company in a statement. “The attackers also wielded axes, swinging them at vehicles and through a truck’s window. Flare guns were also fired at workers.”
