Gold pipeline protests that led to -- actors there'll -- and Texas land owner -- -- -- their child trying to stop the pipelines construction.
And both planning themselves behind bars.
Here first on fox.
I'm not -- -- wanna start with you and just simply ask why why did you do this why do is obviously dangerous move what compelled you to do it.
Well I have been following trans Canada is bullying.
And threatening landowners.
Intimidating American land owners and threatened with lawsuits and then -- implying that they will drive them into bankruptcy if they don't cooperate.
And also insisting that if they don't even if they don't cooperate they're still gonna get their land.
-- so I decided to support.
On her own land.
-- she got charged of trespassing and it decides to support all of the landowners who -- struggling against this pipeline because.
Is it -- in -- all Americans are water supply our food supply.
It's an export pipeline only in the greater good is only for the pockets of trans Canada -- has nothing to do with our benefit.
Okay now we have reached out to TransCanada and they did give us a statement I want to listen to -- holidays that we have all the all of the rules and regulations to get this pipeline improved.
And wonder why these professional activists who engage in these illegal activities.
Are trying to prevent thousands of Americans from providing for their families by helping to build the Gulf Coast project and energy security that it provides.
-- okay -- you know listen we have with a lot of pipelines are already in existence that I looked at a map for the B Fortis is not is like a giant highway.
And you know the the ecological concerns while somewhat valid we haven't heard of a whole bunch of people dying from these pipelines or poisoning our wells are poisoning our land.
So why why that that you're still -- -- in this position they're taking this position.
There's several points first of all that's not true that have been twelve spills -- the last twelve months from trans Canada by the pipelines.
Second of this is not.
Ordinary crude this is something called tar sands it's a very crude -- says.
Toxic form of -- That needs to be heated to a 150 degrees in order to even move it through the pipe it's a very energy intensive process.
As a very dangerous process that hasn't really been done to this extent before so it's something that is an unknown and there -- putting these.
Heated pipelines under gas lines natural gas lines and in in inside out refers it through wetlands.
A compromising springs -- Sadr and we're not professional activists I'm.
Just a bit -- citizen I'm an actress mrs.
just the landowner and a -- private citizen Farmar.
These are not professional -- as this has opposition all the way across the line.
Every person who has this coming through their property has tried to say no and they're just either but leaders silenced in two who cooperating.
Because they're afraid.
Well if you're afraid -- -- I wanna talking about this because.
If you're afraid typically what I'm afraid I'll call the authorities.
Have you called anyone -- -- called the police have you called her.
Your local legislative represented -- I mean what have you done.
Through the legal process to try to protect yourself there.
Well first -- my husband was petroleum engineer.
For fifty years.
NN and I was not against the pipeline.
At first it was the lagging in their contamination.
That bullying that.
Trans Canada did -- all that land downturns they said they would not plant trees back in the works thanks.
They wouldn't -- coast so back into the console sales and we couldn't build.
A dirt road over I have not any acres of land on the other side of the pipeline.
I couldn't build actor -- -- -- But hello it's -- sell the -- well I mean how could they come to acquire the -- Imminent domain on me.
OK and it it's not really selling -- land that age and they have an -- they'd buy an easement.
Ever it's forever.
And and it's not there -- and it is my -- And I still pay taxes on the part that they put there pipeline on we all paid time taxes on which I think is great well.
Absolutely I have a legitimate grievance there and I just gotta go back to there'll for 12 because.
You know a lot of Hollywood stars have gotten involved in this energy debate.
But by the same token a lot of people will say this has been a godsend in places like Pennsylvania worst rating hundreds of thousands of jobs.
North Dakota where the unemployment rate -- the lowest in the country.
You know do you -- these things there'll assay.
For the greater good of the nation where people can actually -- their kids we should do this.
If you you're mistaken on the hundreds of thousands of jobs it's three.
Thousand temporary construction jobs and that's it because the only reason they want this pipeline is to make.
It -- -- the coast so that they can export the oil this has nothing to do with energy security it has nothing to do with jobs.
There's several lies that have been.
That have been communicated to the public and one that is that this is crude in part of the reason that Alan.
It's a very very corrosive toxic substance.
Right -- -- -- I mean I think for the most part they kind of Bernard to your point on Canada had them and liquefied and it comes to the pipeline but I wanna stay right here.
-- or you know do locking your fight and -- -- that in this country people stand up particularly for their property.
And you know we won't really wish you the best luck and Darryl I -- -- will be seeing you again although it is not a professional activist you are concerned citizen we appreciate having on the show thank.
