Ezra Levant chatted with Faith Goldy about her attempt to talk with the Line 9 protesters who were having their day in court. And what started out as a peaceful attempt to get to the root of the protesters' cause, ended up with noxious emissions of a different kind.
Goldy was on hand for a court hearing on Tuesday in Hamilton, Ont., "minding her own business" when an activist "farted" in her face.
Goldy spoke about the incident on The Source, saying, "“I’m just minding my own business, when all of sudden something putrid emerges in the air. So I gaze from my phone and there before me is one of the bottoms of one of the Line 9 protesters."
“So they farted in your face? That’s what you are saying," Levant replied.
"That is exactly what happened, Ezra,” Goldy said.
Line 9 was built in the 1970s and originally sent oil east from Sarnia until the direction was reversed in the 1990s to carry then-cheaper offshore oil west.
Enbridge recently received approval to return the line between Sarnia and Westover to its original eastern flow, and has applied to do the same with the Westover to Montreal section.
Opponents say that opens the way for the pipeline to carry bitumen from the oilsands further east.
