Working Class Environmental Hero

Remember how pro-Keystone/Gateway pipeline hack Ezra Levant moaned and whined about "downtown eco-activsts"? The generation Xer insulted many out of work or underemployed millennials, implying that poor degree choices like "peace studies" rather than a global economy driven into the ground by conservative policies was to blame.

Whilst insulting environmentally conscious downtown residents, Levant typecast them all as coffee-shop employees. Yet from Toronto to Winnipeg to Edmonton there exists one of the most solidly blue-collar and green-collar jobs out there: bicycle courier. It's a predominantly "downtown" job and it certainly involves a lot of "physical labour".

Perhaps if country club conservative opinion leaders left their bubble a bit more often they'd realize this.
