“Pipeline chief Albert Gerow won’t answer Burns Lake Band questions” (http://www.straight.com/news/553961/pipeline-chief-albert-gerow-wont-answer-burns-lake-band-questions)
Now, first nations youth who HAD been receiving grants are experiencing a 25% cut to grant moneys, want to know where that moneys are going?

Its my DangLiNG Carrots youtube video.
“I accidentally came upon this press release for LNG at the Legislature April 29th. I am sure Albert Gerow was on those stairs, maybe even Phil Fontaine?
Sell outs for Oil and Gas, sad shame since that industry is dead and dying and on its way out. Its a new day of alternative living and healthy life, these folks are the ones we are still educating and waking up!
I saw suits and loads of people on stairs including youth of colour, I know they hand picked this group, I felt for them all, so I went and turned on camera, here is what I saw and heard.
TradeRoute Mobile Training Unit! (Mobile LIARS courtesy LNG , government etc!)
This disgusted me, it was, to me, a big LNG Government “love in” full of lies!”
I was unable to catch it all but, I caught enough on film to know how disgusting this all is!
One can go and check out Camosun College and see how they CUT the 2nd year Geography program completely! What or whom are they making room for in their budget/itinerary? None other than LNG ie: Tech trades involved in Fracking, just what we wanted right? Wrong!
I found this sticker on this monument for the worlds tallest totem pole, up at Dallas Road in Beacon Hill park.
Speak OUT and Stand up! Lets get the word out that our students are under attack, our very future is under attack. I know of a fourth year herbalist student from Ft. Chippewa area who did not get the usual grant money she was told to expect. SOmeone let her know that they cut 25% to go elsewhere, and guess where? Argh!
An herbalist gets cut for fracking tech!!!!
How messed is that Canada! Pretty messed in this day and age!
We got healing to do and what does Harper and neo cons alike do?
Hey reporters, cover this one maybe? You can use a fake name and we’ll get it out for you!
In the 2013 Straights article :
“Gerow is stepping down on December 31. He has accepted a job with TransCanada Pipelines Limited, according to a report by the Burns Lake District News. TransCanada wants to build the Keystone XL pipeline from Alberta to the U.S.
In May of this year, Gerow endorsed exploration work for another pipeline project, Enbridge Inc.’s Northern Gateway, which his wife’s political party opposes. (That pipeline was recommended for federal approval by the Joint Review Panel on December 19.)
“He never discussed his resignation nor his job that he took with TransCanada,” Charlie said.
Charlie and 12 other members and nonmembers of the band were sued for defamation by Gerow and two others.
Former band councillor Ryan Tibbetts, a lawsuit defendant, attended the December 17 meeting. Tibbetts said that an explanation from Gerow at that meeting of his decision not to finish his term would have been a “common sense thing to do”.
“But he didn’t even do that,” Tibbetts said by phone.
Gerow did not respond to requests from the Straight for comment before deadline.”
Hmmm? I wonder, what ever happened in that suit against the 12 members and non members of Burns Lake? ANyone? I know I saw Gerow sons in a fancy high definition LNG PROMO Pipeline video talking about how great their jobs were. Acting of course, for the corporate pig. I guess maybe Albert Gerow has got some “secret plan” he will unveil in which he takes over LNG and shuts it down?
Dream on hothead! I support Ancestral Pride and the like, lets GO supporters of first nations! Get behind true leaders! Many youth are speaking out as well, praise them one and all, lift them up as they are our future, our children’s future depend upon them.
Lets all move away and out of the dark colonial ages into a new enlightenment lead by traditional people’s. Protectors will soon leave their jobs on masse and defend, that day is coming, prepare yourself Gerow youth, that day is coming, know which side you are on. All of you family members working for oil and gas, KNOW THAT YOU come from a time of people who walked and moved forward with true elders. You will walk away from destructive jobs and take your rightful place in defending Life itself and your very futures. I know it. We all know it.
Prepare yourselves one and all.
Its gonna be fun work; reclaiming, rebuilding and the empowerment which will follow.

“MLA Spencer Chandra Herbert says the NDP is focused on taking on the government.
NEW DEMOCRATS AREN’T having a conversation about Albert Gerow’s endorsement of exploration work for the Northern Gateway pipeline, according to B.C. NDP environment critic Spencer Chandra Herbert.”

“Gerow is the husband of Victoria–Beacon Hill MLA Carole James, a former leader of the NDP, which opposes the oil pipeline project.
“That conversation is not there. Our conversation is about how do you take on the government,” Chandra Herbert told the Straight in a phone interview on February 6.
Last year, as chief of the Burns Lake Band, Gerow backed an application by Northern Gateway proponent Enbridge Inc. for temporary-use permits to undertake drilling and surveys.
“We’re not looking at an individual band or an individual person,” Chandra Herbert said.
B.C. Green interim leader Adam Olsen suggested that there must have been some “discomfort” among New Democrats over Gerow supporting exploration activities for the pipeline. However, the Tsartlip First Nation member said that Greens aren’t going to push the NDP to talk about this.
“It is their business to have the discussion, whether they see fit or not. It is what it is,” Olsen told the Straight in a phone interview.
Gerow stepped down as Burns Lake Band chief on December 31, 2013, before the end of his term.
On February 11, a by-election was under way for a new band leader. Pauline Goertzen, a Caucasian woman, and Wesley Sam, a former band councillor allied with Gerow, were running for the position.”
