For the second time in only a few months, radical far-left groups in Canada have perpetrated an act of eco-terrorism.
An anarchist eco-terrorism group in Montreal has taken credit for setting RBC executive Michael Fortier’s cars ablaze. The group made an anonymous post, claiming “vengeance” for RBC’s funding towards the Coastal Gaslink pipeline in BC.
“Late in the night, on May 4th, individuals acting in the spirit of vengeance visited the home of Michael Fortier on Chester Avenue. Mr. Fortier was a federal cabinet minister under Prime Minister Stephen Harper,” the letter reads.
“… Mr. Fortier no doubt feels at ease with his employer’s decision to continue funding the Coastal GasLink pipeline (or any other disgusting project financed by RBC).”
The group further stated concerns about climate change and Indigenous rights while threatening Fortier’s grandchildren.
“…He must understand that no one is safe amid this storm.”
Police claim they’re still looking into the incident.
Subsequently, Alberta Premier Jason Kenney condemned the radicals and added that Indigenous groups actually support the pipeline.
“All 20 elected First Nations band councils along the CGL route support the project and have negotiated an equity share to become co-owners of the pipeline,” Kenney tweeted.
This incident follows a slew of radical activists threatening and committing eco-terrorism in Canada.
In February, radical activists in BC wielding axes attacked security guards, set fires, and destroyed vehicles at the Coastal Gaslink security site, causing millions of dollars worth of destruction.
As the communist group’s letter indicates, environmental terrorists aren’t afraid to state their intentions.
And just last week, The RCMP “K Division” dispatched the Explosives Disposal Unit to the scene of the Trans Mountain Pipeline after the Crown corporation announced a “suspicious package” was found near the crude oil pipeline.
