mont blanc pen 149 Trudeau feels the heat in B
After getting smacked with the carbon tax, this is our payback.
Trudeau, still flogging the idea we score pipelines with a carbon tax, gets one rough ride Friday when he shows up in the Vancouver Island city of Nanaimo.
At the Trudeau talk a thon, it a senior who really gets things going. This lady calls Trudeau handsome precious one and says she felt he was on her side. She voted for Trudeau. But she upset he backed the pipeline.
She pleads to the PM now.
please, please, oh please, please, she approaches Trudeau for a hug, begs him to stop the pipeline.
Cheers! Whistles! Yelps! Yells! Chanting! Excitement! The crowd is into it.
Trudeau starts explaining, rambling, talking about how the Northern Gateway pipeline is toast. It as if he saying,
hell, give me some credit.
He gets back shouts and heckling. A dude is tossed. An Indigenous chief talks to the crowd, hoping everyone will play nice.
Shouting! More shouting!
Trudeau tries and tries again to talk about the pipeline. The former teacher must have thought this was like one of those classes where the kids just won stop misbehaving.
me I know what your concerns are, he tells the young and the restless.
Trudeau asks a heckler to leave, they leave. He wants to quickly finish his thought.
At some point he talks about the national price on carbon, that is, the carbon tax. And world class oceans protection.
other part of that He just about to explain there will also be a pipeline.
Another heckler, close to Trudeau.
on. Come on. Really? Really? This is it, the PM says to the heckler.
you respect the people in this room? asks the prime minister, who clearly has had enough in what is quickly becoming a theatre for the absurd.
Trudeau asks three times for respect. done this for 25 minutes now and I gotten to two questions or three questions. That not fair. asks the cops to bounce the offenders. More heckling!
Finally, he says, once again and with more words, the pipeline is getting built.
Boo! Boo! Sounds like somebody isn happy.
Trudeau then points to an eight year old girl in a white poncho to ask a question. Peace is restored.
