I hope they find the criminal who did this. I know the family who owns the gondola. They are in the midst of mourning their mother who died recently - a victim of bone cancer. I can't imagine what they are going through right now and my heart goes out to them.

The hardcore BC left-wing is insane, because there's no one except for an eco-terrorist full of their own self-righteousness who would have done something like this.

They got him on tape. He should be charged as a terrorist.

It could be just a run-of-the-mill asshole. Not necessarily an eco-terrorist.

Nah. Teens or some other sort of dumbass vandal would just trash the place, or shoot the windows out of the cable-cabs with a slingshot or high-powered BB gun. Going for the main cable to wreck the entire line takes planning and thought, not mindless stupidity. The cops even said as much, that it was basically the deliberate targeting of the most critical part of the line. And eco-freaks have had any sort of cable line, for skiing or sightseeing, as one of their major targets for decades. That's why no new major ski resort projects have happened in BC or Alberta for years, because the opposition is so rabid and practically openly admitting from the beginning that they'll start trashing equipment and burning down newly-completed buildings like lodges if they get the chance.

Hope the feds and Transmountain have paid well for security because there's no way this sort of targeted destruction won't happen to TMX as sections of pipeline start to get put together and laid in the ground. That's when the real sabotage will start occurring, when things get past the two-thirds completion stage where they can cause the most expensive sort of damage.

Terrorism is defined in the Code of Federal Regulations as “the unlawful use of force and violence against persons or property to intimidate or coerce a government, the civilian population, or any segment thereof, in furtherance of political or social objectives.

I think that fits.

WTF does it have to do with left/right ecology or terrorism?
1st thing to look at is who owns it and who's got it out for them.
Who's going to commit such as dangerous act without some kind of compensation?

Umm, because eco-terrorists are regarded by every legit law enforcement agency on the planet as being part of the hardcore unhinged left-wing? :?

Assumes facts not in evidence.

How do we know this is an act of eco-terrorism? It could be anything from insurance fraud to personal grudges.

Say no to a buyout from Uncle Guido?
Rebuild for $5 million just as a pandemic hit and tourism collapsed? Can't burn it down for insurance money?
We'll see should be an interesting tale....

Insurance fraud eh. How about you back that ignorant statement up with some facts that would support your spurious comments.
