Supposedly in Response to a CTV Article which Greenpeace comments were about the Alberta oil industry.  No date was included.

This email arrived today.

Can't say I disagree ... with any of it.


"Dear Greenpeace personnel,

I am a very concerned 41-year old Canadian family man (yes, male, I can still distinguish),
born in a small village in Saskatchewan and currently residing in Medicine Hat, Alberta. I would love to assist your organization in making the world a better place. I recently read a quote from Mr. Stewart that ‘oil in Alberta is unnecessary’ and something about ‘only clean energy’ (of course I am mildly paraphrasing but it was the gist of the CTV article). 

Now, I can tell you that I was angered by these comments.

So, as Greenpeace has all the answers, I thought who better to contact other than the fine individuals of your organization. 

Now Issue # 1 is transportation: As almost everyone in Canada is not living in the GTA, what
is the cleanest form of transportation that you could recommend for my family (which includes my wife, 2 teenage daughters, and the family dog)? Public transportation across the prairies (to visit family) is almost non-existent since the closure of Greyhound and STC (Saskatchewan Transport
Company). Even when the bus lines were fully operational, 10 to 14-hour bus trips to get from point ‘A’ to point ‘B’ were way too long and fares for the family were too expensive. I should also mention a normal drive time for a personal vehicle is approximately 6 hours.

So, with public transportation out of the question, I need to own a vehicle. Please recommend a vehicle on the market that has no oil products in it. Maybe, if I can get personal on some level, what kinds of vehicles are most commonly owned by Greenpeace executives/employees? I only ask because as I read the news (and any other publication that posts the comments of individuals such as Keith Stewart), apparently Greenpeace has no use for oil and oil produced products, as they all pollute the earth. Climate change, you know. So, should I buy an electric car ... NO, I can’t. As a rational, reasonable thinking Canadian, I am aware that electric cars are full of ... NO, wait ... Almost COMPLETELY composed of, and manufactured with/by oil-based products. I guess electric cars are out too.

Horseback? NO. Riding on horseback would get me into all kinds of trouble with the good people over at PETA and WWF. Don’t want them trying to shut me down. My best guess is that none of you folks over there own a personal vehicle. Well let me know which way to go on that one.

Issue # 2, food: Now I’m sure that no one from the world of Greenpeace buys that grubby food
produced on and from farms across Canada. Those farmers use an abundant amount of diesel to produce every scrap and morsel of food that can be found in every grocery store across this great nation. I mean seriously, how is it that all Canadians can’t understand this simple truth. Milk, bread, meat, vegetables, etc. have all come from a farmer, who I can promise you, owns a tractor. Tractors burn a lot of fuel. If you were or are unaware of this revelation, I will guarantee these facts, as I was born and raised on a Canadian farm.

ALL the food consumed from the store has come from a farm somewhere. Then to top it off, those grocers have everything packaged one way or another to keep food fresh and sanitary (God knows we can’t have someone else’s germs on our food). Again, oil issues, all that packaging (to keep the food safe) is made with and by oil products. Honestly, it feels like I can’t win.

So, like activists, I have a garden for all our food. However; protein (you know, meat) is a real issue. City bylaws say I’m not allowed a pig (for pork products such as bacon and such), or a cow (steaks). I can have five chickens. I guess those teenage girls I mentioned earlier are going on a diet. I am very concerned for the well-being of people living in apartments (where gardens are impossible). By the
way, where do you get all your food from?

Issue # 3, heating: This is a touchy subject. How would a man as intelligent as Keith Stewart
and other lead activists heat their homes? Now I am somewhat intelligent as I only have a Grade 12 education from a small prairie high school (not big city educated), but I can’t figure this one out for two reasons. Natural gas ... I don’t think so! Pollution! That clean burning gas from the ground is still produced by Big Oil (we hate those guys). I was going to switch to coal but, carbon tax (pollution, again). Wood burning is not the way to heat our homes, it’s soon going to be illegal to cut down trees (emissions, again). Solar energy, well, that doesn’t stand a chance in Canada. Geothermal would almost be the way to go if it didn’t require drilling and glycol-based fluids. I don’t need to tell you folks the ecological effects that a glycol spill has on the environment and animals. Wind turbines would be almost effective if they weren’t so expensive to set up and not to mention the amount of poor birds that would die as a result. PETA, again, would not be pleased. So, please help, I currently have no way to
heat my home that isn’t a pollution issue.

Issue # 4, electronics: As we all hate Big Oil, we must destroy all electronic devices. No computers, phones, tablets, etc. If it has a computer chip, a plastic-coated wire, a power cord, I mean if even one component of any device/machine contains oil and/or oil by-products, it must be destroyed. Big Oil is not going to keep you and me from our dream of a better planet. No more electronics ... I can’t write this letter, businesses everywhere can’t operate, you can’t get your points across. Maybe we need oil?
What do you think?

If we (as a country) are not going to produce oil, whom/where does Mr. Stewart want us to
buy it from - as I think we have established that it is currently a requirement in every Canadian household including yours? The obvious answer must be the Saudi’s, America or maybe Venezuela (all environmentally-conscious places, right ...?). Which does leave me curious, if all our oil is imported, does the carbon tax go up or down? Maybe imported oil is carbon free? The Liberal government would have Canadians believe that the carbon tax will stop global warming. You men and women are smarter than that, right? I’d like to think that as Canadians we should support Canadian oil as it is one of the most regulated oil producing countries on the planet.

Is everyone at Greenpeace living in a time warp? Are you all individuals who are living off
the land, being 100 percent self-sufficient? If you are, you wouldn’t be able to read this email. However, we both know that you have the ability to do so, which means Greenpeace is also on the Big Oil wagon.

Please don’t be ashamed. Just own it. Stop preaching to the masses. When your organization and personnel are willing to walk your own talk, then I guess we’ll have something to discuss.Are you so blinded by tofu farting hippies that you can’t see the plain truth?

Let us all be honest, organizations such as yours and the ones like it are not willing to make the hard sacrifices to accomplish any real change.

Like almost every lobbyist group, you’d prefer to bitch and whine about everything until the donations stop coming in and then move on until the next money-making issue swings around. Granted, Greenpeace started with admirable beginnings, but like all good ideas, it always ends up about the money. Or am I way off base?

I do expect a response, for if I don’t get one ... you’re going to find this letter on every
news feed and publication that will print it. I will send it to Ottawa (not a threat with the current ‘leadership’, but the Conservatives might listen).

I’ll post it on every social media outlet I can sign up for and people will read it. I know that the loudest voice is the one the public hears the best. By now you must understand that you can’t be the only voice for people to listen to.


 Leon W.

 As you may have guessed, there has been no response from Greenpeace, so, here we go."


No idea who Leon W. is.

No idea who Keith Stewart is either.


oh...and isn't the Trudeau family (trust fund) heavily involved in PetroCanada nationally?  (Ahem...)

The Insanity of the Canadian Parole Board

It's downright criminal when the Parole Board--tasked with the protection of society--contributes to the list of victims with their actions.

I'll say no more except that their decision can actually abet criminals, if the following sad story (copied from an email from its original posting on FB) is any indication:

After reading this, one may wish to contact the Parole Board.

"...release terms were written on a small card in his wallet. Not in his face."

Not yet convinced?  Well, the Canadian Police Association revealed that between 1998 and 2003, 66 people have been killed by convicts out on early release

This story brought tears to my eyes:

the late Marylene Levesque


"In fall of 2016 I met a criminal on parole. Except that, I didn't know right away. I didn't know because his release terms were written on a small card in his wallet. Not in his face.

I didn't know because the ones (I put the ones * plural because he had several parole officers) who had to monitor him, and thus ensure my safety, failed their job.

Among other things because he managed to convince them to let him work in the same environment as where he met his last victim. Basically, he was rolled out on a red carpet all the ideal conditions to redo exactly the crimes he was on parole for. Guess what happened? Exactly the same thing.

His entire file, I was entitled to it AFTER his arrest. I knew after he should not have been released. I was demolished when I read, black and white, that more than one specialist opposed his release because his chances of recidivism were too high. Despite everything, I met him.

Then I was beaten, raped, abused, controlled, sequestered, threatened, etc. That was an obvious one. It was written in his file that he was going to do it again. It will have taken less than 3 months after his release.

And I was replied: ′′ The Parole Board of Canada will revisit its ways of doing it. They blame themselves for letting him do the same pattern again." That was after asking me what they could have done differently. Quickly likewise... I'd say don't let criminals out at high risk of recidivism. Seems to me just that would be a good start. I can understand the argument of ′′ he did his time ".... But when specialists (shrinks, incarceration agents, etc) oppose a release, can we listen to them?

That was in 2016-2017.

It's 2020. Then history repeats itself. To a detail; I survived. And although I'm starting to miss the energy in this case, I'm trying to stand and expose the injustices of a * justice * system that doesn't take victims into consideration.

Let's tell each other the real deals... The release of Eustachio Walese who led to Marylène Levesque's femicide was predictable. No matter what the Parole Board of Canada (CLCC) will say to defend their decision to release him. It should be known that this is not an isolated case. It's happening. Much more often than we think. We'll talk about this in the papers for a little while, history will be classified, then tragedies like this will be repeated.

(posted on FB by) Brigitte Jobin

P.S. Rest in peace Marylene!

P.S. 2 Still waiting for trial. It will be almost 3 years...

SHARE! To inform. To expose. To make things change.

* Photo taken from Marylène Levesque Facebook."

I'm speechless at the insanity of the Parole Board.  And the 66 other deaths that the Board's release policy turned out.

Trudeau's Foibles


Received the following email this morning.

Who knew that reading it would lead to a bout of sadness?!?

For anyone wondering if it's been fact-checked, let's just say that if ONLY half of it were true, it's disgraceful that this irresponsible and moronic child-PM is leader of our once great nation. 


Trudeau 4 years of Accomplishments

By Howie Mandel

Here’s a list  
-Your minister of finance engaged in insider trading – should be a 10-year sentence.

-You blew the Asia Pacific deal.

-You blew the helicopter deal with the Philippines.

-You blew the pipeline deal (he's now trying to save himself from it).

-You blew the deal with China.

-You blew the deal with Europe.

-You invited "irregular" immigration into Canada and the taxpayer foots the enormous bill for it.

-You alienated the United States – our largest trading partner.

-At the G7 you pledged $400 million to Education around the world along with another $180 million to the Global Partnership for Education in Europe. None of it is going to fix our messed up school systems here at home. Meanwhile, education costs are skyrocketing for our youth making university a mountain too high for many to climb.

-You pledged $241 million to Family Planning around the world including a $20 million donation to the Bill and Hillary Clinton Foundation (because they have integrity!). This all happened while you told veterans that they were asking for too much.

-You pledged $2.65 billion to climate change at the Commonwealth Leaders Summit and now you’re trying to bully the provinces into new taxes to pay for this pledge.

-You pledged $300 million to the Rohingya Refugee crisis while we have a refugee crisis of our own flooding into Quebec that you won't address.

-You pledged $125 million to Caribbean Reconstruction while our own infrastructure in cities is falling apart.

-You pledged $650 million to Sexual and Reproductive health in Haiti and around the globe wanting safer abortions for women while many women in our own country are left without a family doctor.

-You pledged $50 million to Palestine for flood relief when NB had some of the worst floods in decades this past spring.

-You pledged $840 million to Syria for Humanitarian Assistance when half the native reserves in our country don't have clean drinking water.

-You gave $10.5 million to a convicted...CONVICTED terrorist in a backroom deal that has led to another $30.8 million paid out for three others who say they were wrongfully detained.

-You spent $4.5 billion on a 65-year-old pipeline, and now the courts have ruled it shut down. Now it's back on (at a delay cost of $250 million) - a good investment for Canada you said? (And KM uses that money to build a pipeline in Texas)

-You pressured Jody Wilson Raybould repeatedly & INAPPROPRIATELY with several different high ranking officials to offer SNC Lavalin a DPA instead of prosecution for repeated & sustained corruption AFTER the former AG had determined they were ineligible for such a deal. You lied about the above having ever taken place.

-You replaced Canada’s old F-18s with Australia’s old F-18s.

-Your bizarre love of all things Castro.

-You imposed tough regulations and taxes on oil from Alberta, Saskatchewan, and Newfoundland but not oil from Saudi Arabia.

-Every new project has to undergo strict environmental assessments...except cement plants in Quebec.

-You said that a proposed pipeline must consider “the intersection of sex and gender with other identity factors” (what does that even mean???)

-You think older Canadians should be replaced. How is -that moral?

-You chase foreign companies (and their investment capital) out of the country like they have the plague.

-You chased our WW1 soldiers out of our national anthem... lest we forget.

-You continuously use identity politics...then complain about identity politics.

-You forgot Alberta was a province.

-You called small business owners “tax cheats”.

-People voice concern over money spent on illegal immigration and you call them intolerant racists.

-We have an equalization program, but you give half of it to one province.

-You spent $8 million on a skating rink (vanity project) when Canada's largest skating rink is 500 meters -away.

-You added tens of billions to the national debt while lying to Canada's face about it.

-You groped a woman and when caught - laughed about it (MacLean's interview) and said she experienced it differently.

-You elbowed a female MP while dragging another MP by the arm in a petulant huff.

-You renamed Fishermen to "Fisher-folk"

-People kind? (international embarrassment)

-You got India to invest $250 million in Canada but we have to invest $750 million in India first.

-You compared returning ISIS terrorists to Italian immigrants and said they will be an extraordinarily powerful voice for Canada.

-You let terrorists keep their Canadian citizenship.

-You spent $212,234 on the artwork for the cover of the 2017 budget report.

-You think Canada is 100 years old instead of 150.

-You spent upwards to $348,000 on food and alcohol in five flights on our government’s plane. On your G20 trip to Argentina, you spent $103,000 on food and alcohol alone. How is that even possible?

-You gave Canadian taxpayers' money to Hamas.

-You voice outrage over fake racist attacks and say nothing about real terrorist attacks.

-You took 10 vacations in a single year. Who does this??

-You spent a little over $1.5 million on the trip to India that did nothing but worsen ties. Plus paid over $17,000 to bring an Indian chef to India to cook Indian cuisine. And to top it off, invited a convicted attempted assassin to a dinner and posed for pics with him.

-And you’re the only PM convicted of ethics violations. (multiple times in fact)

-You allegedly destroyed the career of one of Canada’s honest military leaders to cover up possible massive government corruption in shipbuilding contracts.

-You invited Joshua Boyle, an alleged perpetrator of sexual assault and unlawful confinement for a photoshoot in the Office of the Prime Minister.

-You threaten to sue the leader of the opposition then chickened out when you realized that your alleged crimes would be exposed in court.

-You offer over $600 million dollars in subsidies to failing mainstream media outlets if they can prove to be trustworthy. You put a union who vows to destroy your opposition in charge of selecting these new “trusted” sources to receive funding. You could school the Russians in election interference.

-You pay off your friends to engage in election ads for you and get Elections Canada to pay for it.

-$200 million to Loblaws for new refrigerators.

-You made public statements of deep admiration for Chinese communism.

-You wore preposterous, inappropriate costumes during a state visit to India, paid for by Canadians.

-You were instrumental in handing WE almost $1 billion for work that could be done by regular already established operations...your mother and brother received over $300,000 from WE for short speeches that normally do not receive payment.

-You have been instrumental in allowing a company with strong communist party ties to perform communications and security work with our embassies.

What moral, functioning Canadian human could possibly justify voting for you?



After reading that it may be the first time I've thought of having a beer at 10 a.m. on a Sunday!
