This video of two burly Canadian security guards manhandling a Montanan trying to defend his private property started circulating around the internet recently.
Wasn’t sure what it was for a while, then a tipster pointed out that this was a local rancher who lives along the Smith River.
He was protesting the fact that a Canadian mining company was trying to open a mine on the Smith River.
Further research revealed that a Canadian mining company(TinTina) has been trying to open a mine on the Smith River for years and only because local farmers, ranchers, fishermen and outdoor enthusiasts have spoken up has the process been questioned.
This is a disturbing scene to see privately hired security, from another country, manhandle a Montanan for defending his property – and all of our property – our public waterway. I wonder what Secretary of Interior Zinke would do if someone grabbed and bumped him like this guy did.

Imagine what Greg Gianforte would do to this guy…
