Pipeline Supporters Overtake Anti-Pipeline Protest

"What started as a pipeline protest in Calgary quickly became a show of support for the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion and the oil industry Monday.

A group of about 24 anti-pipeline activists played Indigenous drums and raised signs reading, “Stop the Kinder Morgan buyout,” outside Liberal MP Kent Hehr’s headquarters on 6th Avenue S.W. But the group was drowned out by a crowd about three times as large, bearing colourful “Just Build It” signs, voicing their endorsement."

This is too good. The most entertaining anti-oil protest saga I've followed in quite a while, if not ever.

Freedom of Speech in action!  Yaaaaay!

Go counter-protestors, go!

Not everyone hates oil & gas.  Great to see supporters drowning out the "keep oil in the ground" crowd.

It could be the prevailing of common sense. Or they could be paid pipeline supporters. This is the cynic in me speaking. It is possible that more people just want this pipeline, irrational as it may seem to the opponents.
