Alberta: "We will have many dark days if people don't start standing up"

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Stand Up for Alberta held their latest rally in Drumheller this past weekend. The group is no longer affiliated with the Albertans Against the NDP and has re-branded to Stand Up For Alberta Against NDP.

The format of the event has now changed into more of a seminar, with organizers presenting their own ideas and information. But a few Albertans took to the mic to express their concerns related to the NDP government and that’s what I attend the rallies for – to hear what Albertans across the province are expressing about the NDP government.

The organizers of the event had a message for attendees – spread the word. After all, this is how these rallies came to take place as a grassroots movement.

You can follow the group on their “Stand Up For Albertans Against NDP” Facebook page, or you can check out their website at

The next Stand Up For Alberta Rally will be held in Red Deer on November 29th.

The NDP budget is a disaster. Over 50,000 are out of work. Investment is fleeing the province.
SIGN THE PETITION to tell Rachel Notley stop her war on Alberta oil and gas jobs:

There is no recall legislation in alberta only a massive public demonstration or complete work stoppages could force them to feel enough guilt.remember that it is our legislature the people of alberta not some ruling class that has some inherent right to rule. Every day i hear people say oh well there is nothing we can do.i argue that there is something but it requires a huge effort of all the people.if 300,000 or more citizens swarmed the legislature they would have to leave power or fight us with force.

How can we force a RE-election? I’m sure the outcome would be very different.

My best wishes to our friends out west; the inmates are running the asylum and brace yourselves for similar measures taken on a Federal stage under Trudeau’s reign. If it’s anything that remotely resembles K. Wynne’s idiotic policies, we’re in for a long and stormy night these upcoming years.

Chris Mallory — another low information disciple of the new religion, who believes subsidized “clean energy” (which requires fossil fuels to work, be constructed, and maintained) is a Panacea, but of course, religion requires faith, and he has it in spades. He also fails to see the irony in a statement that says the “new Alberta” is “inclusive” then telling Albertans (READ: conservatives) to move to Texas. I suppose he’d prefer to replace you all with 25,000 Syrian refugees.

Sorry Chris, family has been here since the start. This redneck isn’t going anywhere, nor do I personally think Nutley’s “clear vision” is worth the powder to blow it to hell. Please feel free to exit the premises yourself if you feel viewpoints opposed to your own are too tough to contemplate in your “inclusive, loving” Alberta. (Oh the irony).

Chris, 4yrs of this government and Alberta wont need anyone, you included.

If you REDNECKS don’t like it you should move to Texas. The new Alberta doesn’t want or need you.” Wow, the lefty trolls are getting quite obnoxious! The word escapes me at this early hour, however advocating people to relocate from their homes is something akin to genocide! Hitler and the Nazis have a place for Chris!

Canada is a net Co2 Sink. The third world owes us reparations.

“It seems that the Japanese have a nice tool on orbit and set out to figure out who was a “maker” and who was a “taker” in the CO2 production / consumption game. (h/t to kuhnkat in an o.t. comment. Seems they found out that CO2 was largely net absorbed in the industrialized ‘west’ and net created in the ‘3rd world’. So pony up the cash, China, Brazil, and Africa. I want my environmental compensation!”

Shannon Browne – I Visited the Albertans Against the NDP face book site you listed below. It did not take me very long to see what it was about. See you in Red Deer.

James Barnes The facebook page Albertans Against the NDP still exists ( There was a post on their page speaking to the grass roots group who organize the Stand Up For Alberta events and how they are two different entities but I see the post is not on the page anymore. I suggest if you are looking for information to contact the organizers of Stand Up For Alberta on their contact page ( I was told that the web page just kicked off on Sunday and they are working on building it up so this is probably why it is lean at the moment.

@ Michael Mann – The government is accountable to even those that did not vote for them, they are accountable to all tax paying citizens within their jurisdiction.

One energy analyst I heard said it would take 400 years for a windmill to replace the energy needed to produce it

I agree with Merrill Meikleham when he says to read Michael Crichton’s book The State of Fear. It hits the nail on the head. It is really a great book by a great author. His insight at the time is the way we are living today and being treated by the media and government

I will try and find my answers at the Red Deer rally. It would be nice if a Time and Place was published.
commented 2015-11-18 16:31:28 -0500
So look at this. Is Albertan’s Against the NDP is no more or did the grass roots group that was formed out of the shock of the NDP getting into power now fractured into two smaller groups? Where is the story on this split?
The WEB page you listed might as well be a blank page. There is no information on it at all.

I didn’t vote NDP. They are social democrats that will do nothing but ruin this province. The forces behind the Alberta NDP were discussed at the Drumheller event as well.

The people organizing these events do have some real plans in the works to try and fight back. These were also discussed at the Drumheller event.

One of the initiatives will need volunteers, for further info you may email the organizers at

The grass roots group organizing the rallies/events have a facebook page ( and a new website that they are working on (

I can already tell the air is getting cleaner and notice less variation in the weather now that Notley is thinking about a carbon tax. Just think how the air and weather will be when she implements the tax. The reason the air is so clean now is because BC has a carbon tax and we have predominately westerly winds. As a bonus, we won’t have any Muslim terrorists with the carbon tax.
commented 2015-11-18 15:30:45 -0500
Michael Mann – the number one reason is because I am a tax payer!
commented 2015-11-18 15:17:29 -0500
Climate Change is fiction and hardly the imminent threat that are terrorism, and the poverty we face by killing the oil industry unjustifiably! I urge Albertans and Canadians to read State of Fear by Michael Chrichton, whether you are a fan, the book hits the nail on the head in every way possible discounting CC b.s. and presents an alternative reality to the pervasive fear and insanity that is leading sheep to the slaughter! The book came out in 2004 but strangely Hollywood has not made a movie out of it (while they made many films of his other novels) – probably an inconvenient truth for tinsel town, Leo, Al Gore, and the Democrats. Please pass the book on his website on:: Now we in Alberta have to face 2 devils – our Premier – and the doofus in charge in Ottawa!

You don’t seem to get the concept of a politician doing exactly what they were voted in by their supporters to do per their campaign promises. You didn’t vote for either, so why should they give a shit about you? They have voters to please.

I understand wanting to do good for all as a politician, but that never really happens when it comes to any politician. Liberal or conservative. Someone is always pissed off or unhappy.

Alberta is turning into 1960’s Saskatchewan. I know you wanted a change from the prvious government with their excesses and sense of entitlement. You voted, not for the ndp, but for a need to change. Wild Rose was the correct alternative… Do you wonder what the ruling party at that time had on the Wild Rose leader to encourage the switch of allegiance.. Well, lay in the bed that you created. In your stupidity, you have allowed the ndp into your lives and economy. Well, wtf. Maybe in five or ten years, the ndp will be voted out. At that time, there will be another Ralph Cline style of re-adjustment… You should hope.

The unions (teachers-nurses-gove. so called workers) with the help of the dip sticks in the media will keep the dippers in power.

Peter – what is really galling, is Rachel’s complete lack of respect, and concern for the 60% of the population that didn’t vote for her, and that still pay for her sorry butt. She’s just as immature as the new PM is, and this will not bode well for the west, or Canada. The MSM is not doing their job, and are co-conspirators with this “backroom” government. The MSM have been bought and paid for by the UN, just like Rachel and her class clowns have been.

I know that of the people who I have encountered, listening and then countering with well placed questions, has been met by more resolve on their part. How do you reason with what appears to be a complete and utter denial of proven consequence. How do you get the blinders off of these people. The more we say, the more they dig in their heels. The hard smack of the truth when it fully comes down the turnpike may be the only mind changer out there for these people.
I don’t see how the rough ride can be avoided at this point. I hate that I am saying that.

Deborah, I agree completely that Rachel Notely is only a puppet of a much bigger monster behind the curtains. Its also federal, and global. We can thank the out of control power of the UN for being the opportunists that they are and jumping onto a really bad global situation to help them jump ahead with their agenda. And its evil. How do we fight that at this point?
The doors are wide open, we’ve let in the wolves. We may have to wait until a complete change of guard to be able to have any chance of defending ourselves.

If there is something we can do, I sure would welcome hearing it.
commented 2015-11-18 13:58:29 -0500
I agree that people should raise up and do something, but what? Protests on the steps of the legislature, petitions, letters to your MPP and to Notley, theRebel investigations and video clips are some of the things we can do, but what impact do they have? What more is there? Is there anything legal … and at what cost? As an Albertan I am definitely one who wants to see Notley out of office, at least out of the Premier’s chair, but with main stream media on her side our voice is muted.
