A liquified gas pipeline being constructed in northern British Columbia, Canada was sabotaged yesterday by a crowd of armed attackers who also assaulted some of the pipeline employees too. According to CTV quoting a statement from police, there was a gang of 20 people some armed with axes and fireworks who also attacked security and pipeline employees. Fortunately, no one was seriously injured.
While no suspects have been identified, CTV notes that the pipeline has been the target of protests by local native Indian tribe members, yet a link between local tribes and the attack has not been established. The edifice is being built on Wet’suwet’en First Nation land and, while the pipeline company has gotten permission from elected tribal leaders to construct the conduit, a lot of the tribe’s hereditary chiefs are opposed to the project.
No doubt environmentalists had a hand in this terrorist action. Not only because they and native Indian tribes tend to be joined at the hip, but during December of last year, environmentalists threatened to conduct terrorism resulting from what they see as inaction on human-caused climate change.
The end goal of this attack, ultimately, is to contribute to eradicating the use of fossil fuels which is vital to our civilization. Like many on the left, environmentalists are fanatics plain and simple. Hopefully, police will investigate, identify, and prosecute those responsible for this heinous attack soon.
