So with the blockades of railroad crossings and entrances to government buildings across the country, we are seeing an alliance between radical environmentalists and unelected leaders of a tribe, the Wet’suwet’en.  The protests are against a natural gas pipeline that has already been approved by the elected chiefs of the 20 bands in the contested area.  These unelected chiefs who do not support Canadian law because they don’t recognize Canada are supported by anti-pipeline environmentalists.  They do not recognize that transporting oil and natural gas by pipelines is safer and cleaner than doing it by rail or truck.  They want to “shut down” Canada, yet there is no clear platform.  No doubt they want severe restrictions on fossil fuels and extremely high carbon taxes, but not for the Wet’suwet’en people, who they think should pay no taxes and carry on living with all the comfy carbon-based amenities on a racially pure land, exclusive of non-Indigenous people and free of pipelines.  Is this not part of the same trend we’re seeing in places like Hungary, where the Greens propose carbon taxes for the workers to pay for an exclusive, ethnically pure state?  Thoughts?

Truer words have never been said. For sure something isn't working here. 

This situation is going to get out of control faster than our idiot PM thinks. There are freighters waiting to unload cargo off the coast, trains that can't go anywhere, how much perishable stock is going to be wasted as a result of all this?  

Our country is looking like a worse and worse bet for investors all the time. It's a total joke. 

If all of our PMs served this country like Trudeau does it would become a shithole country in no time.

I wonder how many of the protesters have jobs and how many are receiving government funding.  The irony...

Some of these protesters have been bused in across the border, they have their own agendas.  Some of them don't even know what's in the pipeline, they think it's oil.

This appears to be  aimed at disenfranchising the 28 chiefs and 85% of the Wet’suwet’en people who voted for the pipeline.

Another incorrect usage of the term fascism.  This is not Mussolini, this is not Franco.

Now if we unleashed the full force of the state security forces upon them without restraint in the name of upholding the law, that would be fascism.

This blockading on the other hand, is what the Pentagon refers to as 5th Generation Warfare : Hyperpowered Individuals & Small Groups.

But the hyperpower doesn't come from their strength but rather your vulnerability.

They are not an Wehrmacht which can launch a Blitzkrieg, but in the 21st century they don't need to be.

You are totally dependent on your lines of communications operating at full output, without even being slowed down never mind stopped.

Thus it doesn't take much of a monkey wrench thrown into that, to grind you to a halt.

That's the disproportionate power at their disposal.

So long as you are not prepared to crush them mercilessly like the Chinese do.

Once China has completed its takeover of Canada, perhaps they will crush them for you.

You’re correct that these radicals aren’t in control of the levers of power, but the tail is wagging the dog Big Time.  I’m trying to call attention to the dangers of a Green New Deal movement (which does have extensive traction in B.C. and among the left nationally) that doesn’t see how a positive, sensible environmentalism with some decent social policy can be hijacked by ethnic nationalists, including radical Indigenous, and people who want to destroy Canada’s governments and businesses.  Literally.  Yet many of these radicals are also protected by their wealth and elite institutions.  They are hypocrites, enjoying a carbon based society and wanting to stick it to the workers who built it through exorbitant Green taxes, regulation, and endless consultation.  It’s well supported by the champagne socialists, until they realize that the champagne can actually run out.  Someone made it.

I didn't choose the word "manifesto"...the green fascists did...on purpose.   Own it.

A Declaration is a manifesto to.  Seriously, the word manifesto is all it takes to make you tremble in fear?  Maybe letting go instead of getting a grip...I don't know.

Doesn't take much to make you pee your pants either way. Wait'll you meet an green-Islamist. You'll be squirting out both ends.

So basically we stop most industry and resource extraction, tax the hell out of existence, because everything we do requires production, which at best requires electricity in order to provide the level of power needed to maintain the lifestyle to which we’re accustomed.  Energy production will have to go totally green. Transportation will go electric.  Huge swaths of the country are turned over to pure Indigenous tribes as untaxed free land occupied by untaxed people who also receive government funding of health, education, and key infrastructure.  No non-Indigenous allowed.  Everyone else is expected to pay for this arrangement despite the fact that tribes displaced tribes and seldom had there been a notion of private property and permanent settlement among most tribes.  Indigenous can make their own deals with businesses, getting a cut of the wealth without having to disclose the amount or give anything back to the wider society or their own communities.  It’s a story of victimhood, carried into other intersectionalities: gender, sexual orientation and sexual identity.  The biggest victim gets the most points and the workers pay for the scheme in higher taxes.  

I like what the manifesto says on redesigning communities and providing widespread rapid transit, but not much else   This is mostly about redistribution of wealth towards selected races and hollowing out Canada’s industrial capacity and resource extraction, letting other countries get the proceeds, and living a subsistence lifestyle because the cost of living skyrockets for the unprivileged mass of workers.  Yup, Green Fascism.

These protesters in Ont are american mohawks. Time to bust heads and send them back. If this is not stopped now this country is done.  It will get to big to stop without the use of force and poor trudeau will never get his seat on the UN . Here is the country falling apart and trudeau had to be forced to come home.  He has given up on leading the country and needs to resign now.

Chief Serge Simon of the Kanesatake (Oka) Mohawks has said the Tyendinaga Mohawks have made their point and should pull back for now.

He's a moderate tho, the younger and rowdier don't necessarily listen to him, it's not like the Indians have a clearly defined chain of command.

      Im currently a grade 12 student who started an Initiative to Inform Youth about Politics and World Issues. 
      I started this podcast in the summer of 2019 after seeing the lack of attention being given to the Canadain  election of 2019. My older friends were not voting, and if they were voting, they voted without the proper knowledge. That led me to create this podcast where I try to inform the youth about world issues and politics, and hopefully encourage them to vote.

      Can you ever imagine a country like Canada not having clean drinking water? In the 1970s the Canadain government promised to bring clean drinking water to all of Canada. Now in 2020 100% of cities of clean drinking water and 99% of rural areas have clean drinking water. the 1% which is missing is the Indigenous reserves. People living on the reserves don't have access to clean drinking water. They are poorly funded. Now the question of what would the Canadian government do if Toronto had no cleaning drinking water?
      BTW if you guys want to know more about me and my youtube channel check it out. I interview high profile politicians including Former PMs and MPs and Senators.

      Consider our turbulent times: predictions of climate catastrophe, the spread of Coronavirus, challenges to existing political and economic systems through movements such as Extinction Rebellion.  The old liberal-democratic political oppositions, e.g. liberal vs. conservative, are struggling to survive as a moderate middle ground between a more radical emerging opposition.
      Thoughts?  Anything in the chart below that you think doesn't apply, should be moved, supplemented?  I would add "Containment" as a crisis response to pandemics.

      While there are many different ways that the tax revenues dedicated to Indigenous affairs can be spent, such as on improving housing or utilities, providing education and health care, or settling land claims, it is useful for government to know what percentage of income taxpayers are willing to spend on Indigenous affairs in general.  This money is in addition to any monies collected from trust funds, resource development, leases on Indigenous territories, and other sources of income for Indigenous peoples.
