This is what happens, prime minister. This is what happens when working folks are fed up and the law they’re told to respect isn’t respected and the government they’re told represents them isn’t representing them. Guys like Guy Simpson show up, an oilfield worker from Leduc, a city just south of Edmonton. An illegal blockade of wooden pallets and signs goes up on the west edge of Edmonton, right on the Canadian National rail line. The railway goes to court to try to derail the copycats, at least on paper. Doug Schweitzer, Alberta’s top lawman, says we won’t be hostages to lawbreakers.
