In the early morning hours of February 19 2019, far left-wing environmental activists erected a blockade on a CN rail line west of Edmonton, Alberta.
And by “blockade”, I mean these people hauled hundreds of kilograms of garbage onto the track and by “environmental activists”, I mean a rag-tag crew of malnourished urban do-gooders claiming to speak for all indigenous people against the Coastal GasLink natural gas pipeline in Northern British Columbia.
The blockade, organised reportedly in part by Climate Justice Edmonton, is part of the “Shutdown Canada” movement of similar blockades of rail lines, government offices, infrastructure and politicians' homes all across the country.
However, unlike what's unfolding in the rest of the country with the blockades turning into long-term encampments, the blockade in Edmonton lasted about 8 hours.
That's because a group of severely normal Alberta men decided that if the police were not going to enforce the law and remove the blockade they were going to do it themselves, peacefully and politely.
It's my personal mission to track down every one of the men involved in standing up for the rule of law in Canada, offer them my personal thanks, the gratitude of a nation, and give them a case of beer.
Today I'd like you to meet Chase Chomey: Blockade Buster.
