It always amazes me when you see a politician actually telling the whole truth and nothing but the truth, but then again they would have been in thee wrong field of work if they did. Recently I read from Taylor’s own Facebook page bragging that he “initiated parliamentary hearings into rail safety in Canada” while omitting these safety hearings were actually a continuation of hearings that started in 2011 long before he ever arrived in Ottawa. But then again that is not why I am writing this, lets go deeper down the rabbit hole. Taylor was actually only one of the 12 members of the committee not including the chair and vice chair.
We read the PDF file that was attached to Taylor’s post, the one he is holding in the picture and discovered he brought Dawn Remington from Friends of Morice-Bulkley to speak in front of the Standing Committee on Transport, Infrastructure and Communities. At this point the rabbit hole becomes more telling, Then we found this next juicy tidbit,
“Dawn Remington also speaks publicly for this group. In January 2019, Friends of Morice-Bulkley and Friends of Wild Salmon hosted a talk at the Old Church in Smithers about the same Vopak deal. (all connected at the hip) After a lot of digging we found Dawn Remington is chair of Smithers-based environmental group Friends of Morice-Bulkley (Nov 2020). She also is on the Board of the Friends of Wild Salmon .” (Note Dawn Remington is now deceased)
Next we found this new Facebook group using the same photo as posted above called Safe Rail – Northern BC, we also see Taylor Bachrach grandstanding on safety as the issue or was it really just a cover? Keep reading we have one more step to go down this rabbit hole.
From Safe Rail – Northern BC see their petition.
Quote from here
Safe Rail – Northern BC is a Facebook Page run by Friends of Morice-Bulkley is just an extension of the Driftwood Foundation in collaboration with the Friends of Wild Salmon in a bid to stop proposed expansion to the Vopak Pacific Canada propane export terminal in Prince Rupert.
Their claim “These trains will travel through the hearts of our communities and along the banks of our wild salmon rivers, posing real risks to human safety and salmon health.” has never been proven. These hypocrisies can be seen having fund raisers using propane barbecues and driving gas and oil powered cars and trucks like its perfectly ok to tell others not to use it, but mind your own business when we use it ourselves. The real intention is they want to land lock the Canadian production beyond their own selfish needs and pretend they do so to protect salmon and children. Both are touch and feel points (kids and salmon) they are always hammering at the public to get a reaction.
So in conclusion, its not hard to see all this pent up indignation from Taylor Bachrach is just a cover for his collaboration with the environmentalists to stop the Vopak Pacific Canada propane export terminal in Prince Rupert.
