    guy was impressively hard to remove considering he wasn't exactly large or fighting it that hard. He went full turtle early and stuck with it

    The Petroleum Show sounds like it is getting targeted heavily this year by protesters

    https://globalnews.ca/news/5376545/c...etroleum-show/
    I wouldn't say that is heavily targeted.

    I like the reaction of the first speaker, she is walking away thinking he is some sort of person on the program and suddenly she does a 180 the second she hears "this man does not represent me".

    Apparently there is a pipeline protest scheduled at the show location. Pretty ballsy considering there is a lot of support in Calgary for it.
    I'm sure the 12 people that show up will really send a message.

    If this works, I think you just invented a new way to find work lol.
    Imagine everyone going to a job fair in a T-shirt to get an idea of someone's qualifications. What a great way to network.

    Quickly state you are starting a go fund me page (Everyone else seems to do that these days) and maybe get enough to retire

    I'll be down at the Energy rally today at noon as well as the Global Petroleum Show this week wearing my bright yellow shirt. Trying to spark up some conversations that will hopefully lead to a job. It's a bit embarrassing, but not as embarrassing as long term unemployment.

    Were you interviewed by the CBC Eyeopener? I just heard a brief interview of someone that sure sounded like it could have been you...

    Had my picture taken by a freelancer today who seemed pretty confident it wold appear in the Sun or Herald tomorrow. Was on the background of Global news last night too. Have already lined up one interview based 100% on that shirt. Someone I don't think I would have been able to get in front of otherwise. Pretty pumped about that, but of course, always time for more interviews or meetings. Tell all your friends. . . .

    That's awesome. You didn't even have to write "Will suck dick for food" on the shirt.
