“for years this BC NDP government has been cozying up to protersters and spewing anti-resource project propaganda”.
The BC Liberals / BC United grilled the BC NDP about “inaction” over the ecoterrorist attacks that have been on the rise in British Columbia.
In just the last few years there as been incidents of ecoterrorists shutting down critical infrastructure such as rail lines and ports including blockading the BC Legislature.
“for years this BC NDP government has been cozying up to protersters and spewing anti-resource project propaganda”. BC Liberal / BC United Ellis Ross said.
On Wednesday during question period at the B.C. Legislature, MLA Ellis Ross spoke about the violent axe wielding and flare gun shooting terrorist attack at a Coastal Gaslink site last year in 2022. He went on to mention the emergency vehicles torched in downtown Smithers, B.C. and more.
Ellis Ross “restore the rule of law and end the violence and terrorism”
Mike Farnworth said investigators need more information for the investigation and said police have been regularly briefing him on the Coastal Gaslink attack.
Ross accurately pointed out there have currently been zero results since the terrorist attack last year, there are no suspects and no extra information has been released to the public aside from the first stream of details when it occurred.
Ross said the government and the RCMP are being completely secretive with the Coastal Gaslink terrorist attack. He also said some investigations have been going on for three months and there still no results on them as well.
Ross called out the BC NDP for enabling climate change extremism which has become a serious danger to the province, residents and the environment.
“BC NDP aligning with protesters have made incidents more serious than anyone could imagine. Imagine talking about terrorist activities in B.C. and look up the definition of terrorism while you’re at it” BC Liberal Ellis Ross said
According to MLA John Rustad the NDP mocked Ross by suggesting terrorism is justified in the name of Climate Change.
“Question raised about terrorism/threats in Legislature. NDP heckled. Response “look up the word terrorism”. NDP @MikeStarchuk Surrey-Cloverdale “Look up definition of Climate Change”. Hard to believe the NDP find terrorism justified in the name of Climate Change. Sad.” Rustad tweeted.
Ross brought attention to an “anonymous” claim confessed to sabotaging infrastructure in British Columbia.
Ross called on the BC government to show the work to date that has gone into investigating the terrorist attacks.
“If you do have this information. Let the public know because we’re talking about the safety of B.C. citizens. We’re talking about the safety of B.C. workers. Yes we’re talking about front line workers including the RCMP”
Ross first tweeted about the alleged anonymous evidence on Feb 28, 2023. In the tweet is a screen short of the article and he captioned the tweet saying “This has got to be on the desk of the BC Premier, BC Attorney General, BC Solicitor General, BC Energy Minister, BC Environment Minister”
Shortly after Ross tweeted the screen shot of the article, BC Rise reached out asking for the source link. Unfortunately he did not respond, however he did do a follow up tweet linking the source.
BC Rise reached out to the BC RCMP for a comment on Monday February 27, 2023. Unfortunately the BC RCMP has not responded. However they did respond to CBC saying they are aware of ongoing efforts to “delay or obstruct” the pipeline.
According to CBC TC Energy, the parent company of Coastal Gaslinkresponded in a email saying said there’s no evidence of tampering, but it’s launching a safety review. It says the sabotage claim, even if unsubstantiated, spreads fear and violence.
The “anonymous” ecoterrorists claim to have sabotaged the Coastal Gaslink pipeline which if are true would cause environmental damage or could possibly kill someone if damage is left undiscovered.
According to an anonymous post On February 24, 2023 that was published on a website called BC Counter Info. An “anonymous” ecoterrorist has confessed to alleged sabotage vandalizing the Coastal Gaslink pipeline during construction.
The group claims to have attempted to weaken the pipes by drilling holes in sections of the transferring pipes and protective pipes. They also said they removed protective coating from the pipes that is supposed to prevent rusting and corrosion.
“We drilled holes less than a penny wide in a section of pipe that had not yet been lowered into the trench. We covered the holes with fiberglass film, which temporarily prevents leaks in the pipes, but only lasts a few months. We know that welded sections of coated pipe are assessed before being lowered into the trench. After the trench is backfilled, they are tested under pressure. The holes were sealed in the hope that they would pass the first pressure test”
They claim to have done some of the damage as recent as January.
“We damaged the protective coating on a section of pipe by chipping and grinding, and chipped a welded seam on several sections of pipe before they were backfilled”
“We poured hydrochloric acid on the concrete pipes we knew were meant for the tunnel under Wedzin Kwa and used a concrete drill inside the pipe to weaken them even further.”
The Coastal Gaslink project when completed will be a 670-kilometre pipeline to bring gas fracked in northeastern B.C. to an LNG terminal in Kitimat on B.C.’s North Coast.
BC Rise is unable to verify who the anonymous publisher is and if the claims are true or false. The “anonymous” poster claims some are true some are fake in order to delay the construction.
On its website BC Counter-info says it publishes original work, anonymous submissions, and material from other websites for educational purposes.
