“Just Watch Me” 2.0?
Interesting, this, if the Minister was quoted correctly …
- “Non-peaceful pipeline protests will be met by police and military, federal minister tells Edmonton business leaders”
- “Canada may deploy defence forces if pipeline protests aren’t peaceful: Natural resources minister”
- “Federal Natural Resources Minister Jim Carr has assured business leaders that workers at pipeline construction sites will be kept safe in the event of protests or civil disobedience …”
Just a reminder that in Canada, provinces ask the feds for help if municipal and provincial resources aren’t enough to handle a situation, be it a disaster or a security issue. More on how this works with the military (“Aid to the Civil Power” in CAF-ese) here.
P.S. – If you don’t get the title, more here (usual Wikipedia GIGO caveats apply). I don’t think this is likely to happen, but I couldn’t resist the link-back to Trudeau Sr.
