"Albertans Against the NDP" movement growing as oil and gas industry crisis continues

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator
 

The Albertans Against the NDP were on the road again and this time they hit Calgary and Lloydminster.

I caught up with the crowd at the Calgary Municipal Centre and arrived to loud cheers and honks from passing by traffic. Tim Moen, leader of the Libertarian Party of Canada was also in attendance and had an important message about our oil and gas industry here in Alberta.

There were also a few unwelcome guests, but that didn’t stop supporters from speaking their minds and standing up for Alberta!

Rebel.Media's Sheila Gunn Reid attended the Lloydminster event, where she caught up with organizer, Drew Lake and also Shannon Stubbs – Member of Parliament for Lakeland.

The Albertans Against the NDP are planning their next rally in Red Deer.

What reporter Holly Nicholas failed to mention was that the Albertans against the NDP rallies have only grown from 12 participants at the Cawtown rally to 15 at the Lloyd rally. Yowzer! How come the ‘righty’ media is always so afraid to either show us the size of the crowd at their events, or, like most other reputable news outlets, to report on how many folks actually attended? When they don’t do either, you know darn well that there were likely only 4 people at the rally and that included the so- called reporter and the camera guy. LOL

The Rebel! Lol, why do I, or other people even read this stuff. Ezra Levant, always trying promote his racism, bigotry, prejudice, and discrimination onto others. And sadly succeeds at it, he has got quite a following I like to refer as ’knuckle draggers"!!
I scrolled through some of the comments. It`s always the same name calling finger pointing attitudes, arguing over things that don`t even really address the actual problem at hand.
I get it that people are upset because their pay-cheque is on the line as well as their trade and lifestyle choice. This is something that holds true for any working family or person. Nobody wants to have to deal with hard times, but the sad fact of it all is. Sometimes we simply have no choice, and that isn`t really anyone`s fault, or blame. It just is, what it is, is all. And yes it will always effect some, more than others with/without the need to blame or fault others.
The oilsands industry was faltering long before The NDP was even elected. This industry has been bandaided so many times in the past 50 years, I am surprised it even lasted this long. As an unsustainable product it was knowingly set up, to at some point falter/dry up. And we all knew this from day one. It doesn`t grow or replenish itself, constant use, simply just uses it up. Nobody can change that no matter what political party they belong to.
Am I sorry that people will or have lost their job because of it? Well of course I am. It doesn`t change the fact that it is happening. All the name calling and finger pointing doesn`t change that fact either.
30 – 40 – 50+ years ago other sustainable technologies were proven to be available and usable/reusable. But governments decided to bandaide the basket holding only the unsustainable oil industry and nothing else. This also long before Rachel Notely or Jim Prentice became Premiers of Alberta.
Now as a country we start to see what happens when all efforts and money are put into a unsustainable industry with hardly anything being pumped into or to promote more of the sustainable industries. As humans for years we knew oil doesn`t grow, there is only so much of it. And once used up, it`s just gone. Most of us knew all along that there were alternative solutions, hemp, solar, wind, and water, that are constantly sustainable on their own.
Maybe the smartest plan would have been to spread the wealth, into alternative solutions, when Canada was prospering as a whole. With that plan people would have more fields to support their families or themselves with, today. Maybe there wouldn`t be this big void that we all be forced to see now.
Now we are forced into an era of where jobs are being lost everywhere, and not just in the oil industry. Every day we see companies laying off or shutting down. We see what used to be well paying jobs being diminished to minimum paying jobs. We see full time jobs being replaced by part time jobs. We see prices rising with wages lowering. We see more people and families struggling to make ends meet.

We, the people need to start countering the communist lies, that are being covered up by the MSM and our governments, by publishing our thoughts, ideas and plans in a monthly paper, that we the people distribute. It is the only way to get the word out, because unionized press do not want the people to know what liars, and manipulators of the people, that they are. We need to go back to basics, and inform the people of what the MSM and our governments are hiding from the masses. We conservatives, need to get off our butts and organize, so that we can keep our country free!

You Albertans created your crisis, whether or not you want to admit it or not. Keeping the conservatives in power was going to eventually create problems. Voting for the bus lady fronted wild rose was going to create problems. Voting for the ndp was going to create problems by just being the NDP.

At one point, Canadians used to talk about moving to Calgary for opportunity. Nobody is talking like that now. I hear Saskatchewant smartened up and turned their economy around. Maybe some of you Albertans can go to Moose Jaw or Swift Current. It will be better off than waiting for the Wild Rose to win the election and having to clean up the mess.

Yousa maybe tell that POS Leanardo Hypocrio to go protest the 2 oil fields near his filthy city of LA which put out more toxins per barrel and twice the downstream pollution of the oilsands before he comes here beaking off. And let me know when you live without oil and gas loser. By the way burning wood releases far more carbon so you cannot do that for warmth
commented 2015-10-29 01:51:01 -0400
Yousa eat the inside of your computer or the magnets from a wind turbine moron. Chew on a solar panel. We did not put the bitumen there halfwit, do you own a vehicle, well lots of that was mined , but ignorant twerps like you think only one form of pollution exists. I bet i pollute less than you , sad how idiots like you think being anti oil makes you clean somehow. ANd maybe try living without it , we never said fracking fluid was drinkable you moron. The more we use gas the less we use coal halfwit, try thinking it through. And eat your vehicle while you are at it or are you a hypocrite? And my offer still stands , i will stand in a oilsands tailing pond if you stand in one of the rare earth mine ponds , ENJOY YOUR RADIATION LMAO

Hey Yousa troll, say it again already you freakin broken record. Enough already, quit spamming the thread. We get it, you hate the oil sands. You want to see it shut down. Well guess what you putz, you have already got what you keep demanding, so shut up now. You’ll get yours coming down the turnpike you ignorant, ill informed, liar loser.

Sam, nobody in Alberta who didn’t vote for that witch is much appreciating your comment. Its a little raw right now.
P.S. put a cork in it.

You Albertans all had it coming. You could have looked at what is happening here in NDP Manitoba, and now you’re paying for it. Only difference is, even the Manitobans are gettig sick of the NDP, as evidenced by the fed election numbers and the internal NDP revolt. Manitoba is having a provincial election spring of next year, and there is a pretty good chance we are going to kick the NDP out.

It’s times like this I’m glad Harper got our premier Gary Doer out of the office, and now the NDP have a real imbecile in charge as the premier. Too bad Harper didn’t remove the NDP premier of Alberta. Wow, all of a sudden, on this basis alone, Manitoba feels more rich than Alberta.

The oil sands cleaning up our environment? How about this … let’s take those big toxic ponds, you know the ones … and you can all bathe in them, cook your meals in the water, drink from them & wash your children in them. How about drinking the water from Fracking? Perhaps you guys would love that. If you can do any of this without any ill effects to yourself our your children – then they can continue to operate. How about that? Anyone up to the challenge? If you’re so confident in these things being so great for our environment put your fucking mouths & lives on the line. Otherwise, you’re just all blow & no show.

I’m convinced Yousa is just trolling people. He’s basically mimicking the NDPs ridiculous platform.

The logic of shutting down the industry that is paying the bills and HOPING a new economy springs up in its place is ridiculous. Imagine if the oil sheikh’s decided to turn off the taps?? ’We’re cutting oil production in half. We want everyone to buy solar panels from us to build a diverse economy". We would laugh at them because at the end of the day ALL the other oil producing countries will pick up the slack. This is what will happen in Alberta. I wonder how years it will take Notley to realize that a bloated public sector and social programs require tax revenue. Can we ask her to do a math test?
commented 2015-10-28 22:24:25 -0400
Seriously. The oil sands are a toxic dump. They are destroying the environment, Canada’s reputation and doing what for Canada? Nothing! Shut them down, lay off all the people there make them find work elsewhere in a DIVERSIFIED economy. The oil sands add zero value to the Canada economy. Either that or tax them to death with a carbon tax and make it 100% unfeasible to have here in our great country.

Hey Ezra, can we get a running tally in sidebar of jobs lost and investment dollars lost in alberta?
commented 2015-10-28 21:05:52 -0400
The Alberta NDP government is out to destroy the oilsands economy and impoverish future generations of Albertans by putting them under a crushing load of government debt, and they must be stopped for causing any more damage. Albertans, unite as one to force the NDP wrecking crew to abandon their sabotage of Alberta businesses and the economy. Massive demonstrations week after week on the legislature lawn cannot be ignored forever. Stop them NOW!

Yousa Kamadick commented 1 hour ago
“Close the oil sands. Prevent any new oil development. Clean up Canada’s environment. You guys can all suck it.”

Sorry Yousa, moslem for Jesus, it was never Alberta sucking it. It has always been the welfare losers of the East, of which you are one I assume. Sadly for you suckers of the teat, of which you are probably a primary example, it will be dry for, hopefully, only 3.5 years. Sucks to be you I guess, during that time.

Yousa said, “Clean up Canada’s environment.”

That IS what the oilsand companies are doing, dipshit!

Drew said, " I think it tends to be urban voters who give us these governments, the hard working farmers and such know better, even in Ontario if you leave the cities you see lots of conservative support."

Drew, the implication is then, that the city folk seem to be out of touch with reality, since a vote for NDP is a vote for the destruction of the economy.

I have to shake my head at the switch around in political philosophies. This excludes Liberals of course, because post-Laurier they have always had the political philosophy of cronyism. I have a blue collar background, labour both union and non-union put me through university, because I had the blue-collar work ethic that I would not owe for my education but pay it up front myself. My wife and I even married during our university years and paid for it through blue collar work. I have two kids that are blue collar, and proud of it. So back to my opening…how is it that the NDP stopped being the guardians of the blue collar and the W/R and CPC became the guardians? Where are the good old NDP in CCF tradition like Douglas and Blakeney. What happened to labour unions that cared about the worker, and that the CPC had to pass bills, soon to be renounced, to protect the worker from union corruption? It is a new world where Conservative means protecting the common man and Progressive (regressive) means abusing the common man. Of course Liberals abuse as a matter of course and don’t figure in the discussion.

Sam Young sadly we deserve it , we had a true conservative alternative to vote for. I just wonder what these people will do when the money runs dry? I think it tends to be urban voters who give us these governments, the hard working farmers and such know better, even in Ontario if you leave the cities you see lots of conservative support.

BRUCE KIRK,
Have Gun, Will Travel.

For all you Lefty Wing Nuts out there, I am only joking, though the thought is appealing.
commented 2015-10-28 18:07:35 -0400
Sam Young – I’m from MB too, but had to leave to find work. Why do Manitoban’s keep electing those NDP crooks?
commented 2015-10-28 18:00:21 -0400
If you albertans think you have it bad, try living in Manitoba, the NDP capital of canada.

Too bad you Albertans didn’t learn from the Manitoba NDP government raising the PST. You know there is something wrong when Manitobans start to laugh at Alberta.

PS: BWAH HAH HAH HAH!
commented 2015-10-28 17:55:32 -0400
While I agree notley and her kids and union parasites need to go, we also need to remember trudueau and his cadre of extreme leftists will purposely do everything imaginable to completely collapse the energy industry and notley will do NOTHING to stop them. So the question is not how to stop notely, the question is really how to get rid of notley and save Alberta

“And no way in hell did i vote NDP.” I have no doubt. What’s it like to live in a sea of Orange. I have a friend in Edmonton the has also replied something like “And no way in hell did i vote NDP.” I asked him the same question and he just grumbled. About the best answer, I imagine.

Peter Netterville we will be joining you, Grande Prairie was bustling and active when i last worked there. Sadly i am not surprised to here that it is hurting now as well. And no way in hell did i vote NDP.
