To the people saying Fort McMurray deserves to burn…

First of all, to everyone in Fort McMurray suffering through this, my heart goes out to you. Stay strong…

To all the hypocrites out there…

If I hear one more person say “Fort McMurray deserved to be evacuated/burned down,” I’m going to snap.

Those of you who are sitting there, typing these insults on your technological devices, where do you think those devices come from? Do you think they’re made in wood cabins with fairy dust??? No, they’re made in factories, with machines, that use… OIL!

To those of you who live in Canada, what do you think heats your homes in winter? GAS! 

How do you get to work/school everyday? Do you drive, take the bus or train? Guess what all of those use…. Wait for it… OIL AND GAS!

To say an area anywhere deserves a natural disaster is beyond ignorant, insensitive and downright cruel. When High River flooded I lost all my childhood memories, my family were locked out of their house for MONTHS. My dog was trapped in the basement for two days without fresh water or food until we could rescue her. 

The people in Fort McMurray won’t even have the hope of finding their animals trapped in their homes, those poor animals will have burned to death, alone, desperately waiting for their humans to come save them. Livestock will be terrified and very well may have perished along with the domestic animals. People have lost everything, and yet you sit there, behind your devices mocking them because they worked hard for a living and made a decent salary? Shame on you all.

 Unless you ride a donkey, horse or camel to work, don’t use technology, and live in a log cabin with no electricity that is heated by wood stove, you all use oil and gas in one way or another. God has a special place for people like you in the after life, it’s called Hell. Unless you all change your tone immediately, I suggest you look forward to the flames that will be your eternity, 


An Alberta Proud woman.

    There are specific places and people that deserve to be wrecked: those who lack basic humanity, who steal, kill and/or destroy just because they can.

    Fort MacMurray DOES NOT MATCH a single part of those parameters – period! Anyone who says otherwise… well, you already mentioned what they deserve, Carolynne.

  5. With Alberta people helping out the Fort McMurray Evacuees I am damn proud to be an Albertan. Anyone who comments saying this province should burn should be taken from their precious homes and sent out to help fight the fires or help rebuild Fort McMurray. Maybe they would see the devastation first hand and have hearts that would break when they see such a state of emergency. All who are proud Albertans are there to help a city that has nothing left.

      Unfortunately anyone so full of hatred will never have the compassion to feel for anyone else. The devastation they would see in Fort McMurray would not touch or warm their stone cold hearts – hatred has blinded them to feel any compassion for anyone else or for the misery that a natural disaster has inflicted on all the people of Fort McMurray or the other areas that have now been destroyed around them. They will feel the hurt when gas and oil are in short supply in Canada due to this disaster but it will still not allow them to feel for anyone else’s suffering.

    Being from Fort mcmurray I try to overlook these ignoramus and focus on the outpouring of generosity and care from the many. Poor fools are only letting everyone know what pathetic human beings they are. Now, just imagine if this situation happened to them and people reacted in the same manner as they did. It hurts to know people would wish this on others. We all came to Fort mcmurray to make a better way of life. We did. We built our community from the ground up. I can’t even begin to tally the number of bake sales, bottle drives, bingos, selling raffle tickets, going door-to- door and business to business to raise funds for hospital, library, schools, hockey arenas, swimming pools, ball diamonds, soccer pitches and so on. At no time did we quit trying to make Fort mcmurray a community that offered so much. Our children learned the lessons of their parents, that only you can fulfill your dreams. Don’t wait for a handout but we alway gave a handup to any and all. We will go back and we will work together to bring our community back. Fortmcmurray strong, Alberta proud and Canadian forever.

    I am a proud Albertan too, Carolynne. I was first Fort Mac in 1972 when the city was on the verge of expansion. In those days it was exciting for people from all over Canada to work in construction, oil sands and the hundreds of related projects in building a community. All were welcomed by the locals. Fort MacMurray has given 1000’s of Canadians from Vancouver Island to Newfoundland jobs and money to care for their families and realize their dreams. Alberta has supported many other provinces when we were rich from oil production and they had nothing. The type of people who write hateful comments and blather on about the tar sands “destroying” nature etc. etc. really need to get their heads outta their asses and take a good long look at what Fort MacMurray has done for ALL Canadians. Fort Mac. is a multi-cultural city, has welcomed people from all parts of the world and has never turned her back on anyone. This is a devastating blow for people as individuals and our economy will certainly take a huge hit. But – like all pioneers, Fort Mac. will survive, rebuild and again become a proud community.

    I am here right now in one of the oil sands plants north of Fort McMurray. I have been helping evacuees to get boarded onto flights out of here. I have had about 8-9 hours sleep since Tuesday morning as have many other people helping with the devastating situation. I truly believe if the people making these negative comments were here looking into the eyes of people who know their homes are gone they would have a different attitude. I hope I never see anything like this again. I dare for these people hiding behind their computers to come here and volunteer , be face to face with these evacuees, I don’t think they could repeat what they have posted. It is a truly devastating experience for me one which will remain with me forever.

    Hi Carolyn

    Of course you don’t know me but I have been following Fort Mac Fire on FB. Partially because my brother works there and because of my concern and worry for others. I also had read the ignorant posts and had posted this myself. As you say, there is a special place for people such as that.😉

    I like most others scroll through FB looking at all the horrifying photos and devastating videos of the fire and damage it has caused as it raged through Fort Mac. But to scroll through and read the negative comments from one stating that he hopes everyone is burned alive and the entire province burns just floored me!😡 All that live there do not work in the oil and gas business and have normal everyday lives working in whatever career they have chosen. And the ones that do work in the oil and gas industry, thanks for keeping Alberta alive and prosperous for so many, many years.

    Fort Mac is just another ordinary town with malls, schools, hospitals, restaurants, etc., etc., etc. It is home to young families, seniors, and let’s not forget the family pets.

    That poor foolish soul that posted such a disgusting and negative comment; maybe he couldn’t get work there himself? Guaranteed if he had the chance he would be one of the thousands working there. Jealousy is an ugly thing that turns people into green eyed monsters!

    As the old saying goes – THEY WALK AMONG US!! I pity such a fool for stating such UGLY words on FB for all the world to read. If he ever wanted to be famous, he sure is now!

    I thank god that there are only a handful out there that are stupid enough to state such ugly words for the rest of us to read.

    This upsets me to no end.. but you know what, it comes down to people being jealous of money. The guy who commented about profiting off oil, what does it matter how the person earns their money and how much “money” the have. That doesn’t merit the right for a person to loose their homes, memories, potentially animals and fear for their life. It’s always the people who somehow think that people with money deserve less than others. I read another status commenting about them being “toy hungry.” Those people, as you said, work hard for their money and who cares what toys or vehicles or anything else one accumulates? This has absolutely nothing to do with the situation at hand. It is an annoyance to no end when people bring irrelevant information to an argument. Fort McMurray gets a bad name that it doesn’t merit along with the oil companies that reside there. They are more environmentally conscious that the majority of large companies out here and plant more trees than any environmentalist that I have heard of. It’s not Karma, it’s not climate change…. it plan old “weather” that’s happened for hundreds of years long before “climate change” was ever an issue. These people with their asinine statements are acting as if there has never been a forest fire short of the time since climate change has been announced. If you think this is “karma,” why didn’t the actual oil sands catch on fire??…. because it’s NOT karma. I believe it’s a blessing in disguise to put Fort McMurray on the map & shine brighter than EVER before and to show the world that ALBERTANS are wonderful people! ❤

  44. Marin Forsberg says:

    Very true! Well written Carolynne. If I may add a few other points –
    First – Not everyone who lives in Fort McMurray works in the Oil and Gas industry. There are many people that work in restaurants, hotels, grocery stores, the hospital, emergency services (RCMP, EMT’S, firefighters etc), civil service, real estate etc….these people too have suffered grave loss.
    Secondly – Those that DO work in the Oil Patch do so, not necessarily, because it’s their “dream job”, but because the job they obtained was one that would provide the ability for them to possibly purchase; a home, quality food, clothing, a half decent education, medical services, etc… for their families.
    The hours can be very long. The job can be dirty and dangerous. It is almost always physically, mentally, and emotionally demanding. It takes a strong, resilient person to work, and stay working, in the Oil Patch.
    They do it, not for the glamour and fame, but simply to provide the best possible life that they can for their loved ones! Something the majority of us do every day, wherever we work!
    Third and last –
    Green House Emissions; Many people in Canada are very concerned with the emissions that the Oil and Gas industry in Alberta creates. They are bound and determined to “make a change”. Fine. Good for you. However, if you truly want to change things, creating a cleaner world for all of us, would it not make far more sense to focus your energy on the areas creating the most emissions?
    Total Global Emissions –
    China – 24%
    United States – 15%
    European Union – 10%
    Other – 49%
    CANADA – 2% !!!!!!!!!

    In Canada – Canadian Emissions
    Buildings – 12%
    Electricity – 12%
    Transportation – 23%
    Other – 28%
    Oil and Natural Gas – 21%
    Pipelines and Refineries – 4%

    Perhaps you should rally together, not against the smallest offender, but the largest offender, who’s own citizens are frequently seen having to wear breathing masks due to the polluted and toxic air that country is producing daily!

    Within Canada, I would start with transportation since it is the top emission producer.
    Perhaps start by asking yourself how many gas, diesel, and propane operated vehicles do you have in your household? Be sure to include any recreational vehicles.
    Then ask how often do you travel by vehicle a few blocks away? Perhaps to the grocery or liquor store for a quick pick up.
    Of all the times you jump in your car, how often are you all alone in that 4 or more passenger vehicle?
    For transportation companies –
    How often do you send out a truck half full, or less, for deliveries?

    Regarding the Oil and Gas sectors, with all of the scrutiny they have been under these past several years, they have actually made a huge effort to “clean up” their emissions. Yes, perhaps they still have a ways to go, but they ARE doing something.

    Thank you.

How anyone with a shred of humanity could feel anything but compassion and sorrow for the people of Fort McMurray & the other communities now under threat of wildfires, is beyond comprehension.

    As a senior, I have endured ridicule at being so reluctant to embrace social media. I accept that social media allows us to communicate with friends and family ( especially grandkids ) in a way that no other medium has. However I also see that social media allows cowards to post hateful, hurtfull messages without consequence. These haters spew forth their filth on sm becaues they do not have the courage or character to say it face to face. I greive that so many have been damaged by persons hiding behind anomymity.too cowardly to face those they trash. How many teen suicides have resulted from bullying on sm ? I guess my point is that since sm is a reality in todays society we must not let cowards like those who posted these hateful comments impact us. We must consider the source and pity them more than hate them. They obviously need help. They are small, insequencial, insecure and are using sm to valadate their pathetic, cowardly existance

You assholes are bottom feeders of the earth and a waste of oxygen. People like you are destroying the earth. Not the people of Alberta. Thankfully, there’s not many of you or the air would really be polluted where you are.

    For anyone to speak such stupidity is ignorance in itself ….I’m from Ontario , and I would not wish this type of tragedy on anyone …Believe me when I say we all feel for the West …I am saddened by the thoughts of people leaving their animals and family pets behind . Only to return knowing their homes are gone as are the pets and animals they once cared for . Not to mention their belongings and family treasures , things that are irreplaceable …Be strong , hold strong ! Don’t let Ignorant idiots cloud your judgement of others ….Their day will come ! As one of them has spoken about KARMA !!! They to will feel the wrath !

I got a lot of friends out there and miss them a lot. They are hard workers and would do anything for anyone so fuck you assholes. Karma is a bitch you will get what you deserve!!!

    Here is a list of some local Fort McMurray agencies people could consider donating to:
    Animal donations
    Check with a local animal rescue to see what they are looking for – be it kennels, supplies, food or money.

    Cash, gift cards & monetary donations are so needed & helpful right now. Evacuees have no where to put furniture, household goods or other big things. They need day to day necessities. Not only are they out of their homes (whether their home is lost or not) they are also unable to go to work or school. Food, shelter, clothing, medicine and toiletries & hope, love and support.

    To those of you who are so negative about oil and gas and say Karmas a bitch yes she is and she is pissed at you😡 You seem to forget that the plastic water bottle you are drinking from or the beer your enjoying all used oil to make your water bottles or to run the line for your beer. So do us all a favour and keep your comments to your self or start walking drink form a stream and carry it in a wine skin and start using the telegraph to communicate!!

    Steve Grant from Vancouver is another ass wipe as well. His rant put the two posted above to shame. Unfortunately the whiney assed chicken shit had my comment to him removed. He tried to shut me down but could only block me. Search for him he is a right fucked in the head individual.His profile pic is a semi-frontal, wearing a white baseball cap and glasses in an outdoor setting. This was my message to him. …….Hey!!! You fucking asshole!! Your comments are completely out of line!! As an Albertan who has no ties with Fort Mac personally, I can, want to be clear when I say FUCK YOU!! You are obviously a self absorbed, uneducated, and predujice media fed individual. One who has not done his due diligence knowing the facts and not knowing the underlying truths to the stories fed to the power controlled media. You are a Fuckin’ retard!! Your lack of compassion in a time of disaster for your fellow countrymen, regardless of situation, makes you what is wrong with the increasing mentality of this nation. Fuck you and any hardship or distaste that may affect you in the future. I hope people show you the same compassion and understanding. ASSHOLE!!
    Oh and by the way…when the tsunami or earthquake hits Van, I’ll
    be one first to donate a dingy and a life jacket!!!
