FRIENDS OF ROCKWOOD PARK COMES FACE TO FACE WITH TWO MINISTERS OF THE SHAWN GRAHAM GOVERNMENT!!! HONEYMOON OVER???
Today was the first true confrontation the Shawn Graham Liberal Government ever had with the public since they took power.
I might add it involved two Ministers of the Shawn Graham Government.
Yes, it was a heavy one!!!
Last night, I was asked if I would be interested in attending a Christmas Party organized by Paul Zed. < I might add that he almost ran me over when he race in the parking lot >
Once there, I decided to take a walk up the road. I noticed the Friends of Rockwood Park on the side of the street.
I might add there was a lot of horn blowing in support.
I would like to also add that people are still congratulating me from the result of my trial.
The word spread around very quickly and it wasn’t even in the Irving papers? Ok...never mind that!!!
While chatting with a reporter from CFBC. I heard this loud shouting match between Roly MacIntyre and Stuart Jamieson.( 2 Liberal Ministers)
Duty was calling and I quickly went for my camera.
I never said a word ( for once ) and began clicking away!
I was surprised these two Liberal Ministers would even face the protesters?
But? I must give credit where credit is due because the Ministers of the former Bernard Lord Government wouldn’t have shown their faces.
The point these Ministers were trying to make was - As Ministers of the Shawn Graham Government, They are not allowed to get involved in the hearings of the Gas Pipeline.
The Friends of Rockwood Park didn’t wish to hear this.
Abel LeBlanc spoke out loud and clear against the pipeline so therefore the same action should be followed by Roly and Stuart.
Sorry...I guess it doesn’t work that way?
But one thing is certain!!!
They got the message loud and clear.
If any decision concerning the pipeline reached the Cabinet table?
Well? It’s going to be a touchy one.
Going back to the friends of Rockwood Park.
They are a very determined group.
Today, it was cold and windy but they still stood their ground and will fight this pipeline till the end of time.
This is November, can you imagine what this group will do once the warmer weather arrives again in the Spring?
