"What a disgrace": Notley snubs U.S. Congressional delegation to Alberta oil sands

Rebel Staff
 

The U.S. purchases about 99% of Canada's oil exports. Sometimes American leaders from both parties visit the oil sands to see them for themselves.

A Congressional delegation visited last week, headed by Republican presidential candidate and powerful senator, Lindsay Graham.

Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall personally escorted them around, while lobbying for the Keystone XL pipeline.

When the delegation stopped off in Alberta, though, Premier Rachel Notley refused to meet with them.

What a disgrace.

It was only when the Wildrose opposition party embarrassed them that the NDP scrambled into action.

Do you need anymore proof that the NDP hates the oil sands?

 

Alberta’s NDP is using a fake "public survey" to push climate change policy.

Ron Voss, I want to apologize for my hypocrisy but it’s so hard to watch someone spit in my food and tell me it’s flavouring. Someone with such overbearing control issues needs to be humbled

Jimmy,
Keep calm and enjoy life. LOL!

Alex,

No, the things that happened to you in your childhood or teens to make you so fucking uptight and seething with the rage to the point that you actually sit down and write a fucking complaint letter to the CBC because you don’t have anything else going on in your life – never happened to me.

As I said to Brian – CBC isn’t required to be what YOU want them to be. CBC also can’t please everyone and be all things to all people. Watch something else. Millions of OTHER people are happy with the CBC.

Francis,

You could ask the same question to anyone here. Peter posts all the time. It’s not like I am talking to myself.

But to answer your question, I am God and yes, God is liberal.

Jimmy seems to think that because there is no such thing as a truly unbiased position that excuses the government funded broadcaster from lying, cheating, and with holding facts about one side while maliciously attacking the other. I don’t understand that thinking. Shouldn’t it be the CBC’s job to be as objective as possible, giving us all the facts from both sides of the political spectrum so that each individual Canadian can make there own decisions. They continually hide the NDP’s true agenda, and covers up there miss steps, which is the opposite of informing Canadians, it rather contributes to there ignorance and leads to making poor uninformed decisions especially on the upcoming election day. Really the CBC like most socialists has absolutely no integrity or credibility anymore. That is also a problem for a state sponsored news agency. They like most things in this country have become so corrupt by the progressive moment there can be no wrong done even if breaking the law because for socialists the ends justify the means and you can do no wrong if it means getting rid of that evil conservative Harper. They can never see the hypocrisy in that for some reason, but that kind of self righteous behavior is the exact same behavior we get from Muslim fundamentalists. Thats pretty scary.

Jimmy’s ignorance shines again. I don’t know if this guy is worth responding to but here it goes,

Jimmy,
If the military steered away from the scope of their duty and started murdering and raping innocent people. I would definitely protest my tax dollars going to the military. But unlike that French traitor Mulcair. I am proud of our military going into harms way trying to stop this refugee creating machine called ISIS. If this was WW2. Mulcair would be saying " This is not our War" about Hitler also. Is this not true Jimmy? Come on Jimmy be truthful for once. It is NDP ideology.

In my letter to the CBC. Your response was “Why do you watch the CBC, if you feel that they are left wing propaganda machine? Do you always watch things you don’t like?” Is that all you have Jimmy? You sound like a retarded little bitch.
Especially, if one calls themselves " Canada’s National broadcaster". They should practice responsible journalism. They should report as objectively as they can. Canadians should know the truths about these ideologies before they vote. If Mulcair comes into power, we will definitely end up like Greece. History has proven that governments should practice financial prudence. Unlike what you think, there are a lot of other broadcasts that practice responsible journalism. And they don’t cost taxpayer a penny.

You don’t argue any of my points in my letter to the CBC. You admit that the CBC leans left. All you say is, why do you watch the CBC. Jimmy, I am calm and I do enjoy life but your ignorance which results in the numerous profanities you deserve and receive baffles me.

Are you sure something weird didn’t happen to you at childhood or possibly your teenage years? Maybe a stepdad or an uncle? Heck, the way you respond, maybe a stepmom or an aunt?

@ Jimmy

Serious question – how do you do it? The massive posting and arguments on multiple fronts over meaningless minutae all day (not saying you are necessarily responsible for said minutae but you have to admit you do play your part)? Does’t it burn you out mentally? Moreover – how do you find the time? You are like the meaningless debate energizer bunny on steroids.

Is it a hobby (you’re retired?). Are you paid? When do you eat? I’m dead serious here – what the hell is your secret and how do you more or less maintain your civility (you do pretty well for a dedicated communist) post after post after post………….

Wow Kelvin, very intriguing. That never crossed my mind. The high possibility of that is very clear now. What a deceptive web the CBC weaves.
commented 2015-09-08 20:04:21 -0400
Brian,

YOU don’t get it. Every single news source on the planet is biased. What you are asking for – doesn’t exist, so your point is completely moot. If the CBC wasn’t left leaning, they would be right leaning and I am sure you wouldn’t be complaining then,

Brent,
I didn’t know about that Union donation in Quebec. Thanks. Not surprised though. Unlike Eve Adams, Mulcair is a pimpless whore who will blow anybody for employment. Eve had a pimp. Did you know that Mulcair tried to work for the Conservatives before he joined the NDP?
Nigel Wright must be a very good and generous man who who got shafted by the left wing media. The only thing that happened with the whole Duffy and Nigel Wright affair is this.
-Duffy made bad expense claims
-Prime Minister said this is unacceptable and demanded back the money
-Duffy said he didn’t have the money
-Nigel Wright recognizes the stalemate. Being a man of means and generosity. Says Canadians should not foot the bill and we have government work to do which is way more important. Then he says out of his own generosity “Let me give Mike Duffy the money to pay back the expenses”. And Brent, you know what the media has done with it.

It is like saying if I get a speeding ticket and I am tight for money. Jimmy decides out of his own free will and generosity to pay my speeding ticket. Should we crucify Jimmy. OK let’s crucify him LOL

You know Brent you got me thinking about the cbc. Their wording in how they just happened to come by the idiot that got caught pissing in the cup, I would like to know how long they sat on that story because it miraculously came out when Fin Donnaly was caught lying about that Sirian family. Coincidence? I think not . It hasn’t been the first time that the cbc sat on a story to be brought out later to implicate the conservatives.
commented 2015-09-08 19:34:34 -0400
Not that there should be a government funded news agency/crappy entertainment channel in the first place. Never mind an outrageously partisan one that actually hides news about one party and maliciously attacks another.
commented 2015-09-08 19:31:38 -0400
Jimmy,
The fact that you would be fine with that does not make it ok. Your a wacko, Im sure your fine with all kinds of wacko things. The point is our government funded news agency should be completely non partisian and report the facts. Not stories spun to one side of the political spectrum or the other. This also has the plus of being a Canadian funded news agency that all Canadians can watch and get informed on the facts around the world. If you can’t see that then you are even less intelligent than I had ever thought. Im also pretty sure that you are the only person in this forum that sounds like “a whiny little bitch”. Poor Jimmy, can’t see the forest for his childish socialist attitudes.

Brian,

How could I be missing the point, when I would be fine with taxes going to The Rebel. I wouldn’t be a whiny little bitch like you.
commented 2015-09-08 18:11:38 -0400
Still missing the point Jimmy! What a guy> Liberal arts major I assume.
commented 2015-09-08 18:09:18 -0400
Brian,

I wouldn’t care. If somehow The Rebel was deemed to be Canada’s broadcaster and essential to Canadians and Canadian content – then fine.

You see, I don’t sit around like you seething with rage about the things that my taxes go to that I don’t support. I understand and accept that we don’t live in an a la carte tax system.
commented 2015-09-08 17:46:16 -0400
If your tax dollars were funding the rebel I doubt you would be to happy about it.
commented 2015-09-08 17:45:21 -0400
And Jimmy Da Moron misses the point as usual. How about the fact that the CBC is basically tax payer funded advertising and attack media against the conservative party. Tax payer dollars should not be being given to a heavily partisan news organization that only promote the liberal and NDP agenda and ignore all the lies and screw ups that the two socialist parties continuously make. They will go after the conservatives for weeks over the smallest most meaningless crap, often exaggerating and even lying to make it seem worse. Anything from the libs or NDP they just bury. Its a joke, Never mind the rest of it, that obvious partisanship of the CBC should be enough to exclude them from being funded by the tax payers alone. Get it now?

Brent,

I don’t even think Ezra actually believes half of what he says – never mind checking facts. His bread and butter is feeding people like you.

Thank you very much. By the way, do you have any Grey Poupon?
commented 2015-09-08 16:56:06 -0400
Hey Jimmy,
Ezra’s fear mongering you say? Really? Ezra checks his facts, do you?
Just remember one thing Jimmy, when shit hits the fan, and it will, it will be fear mongerers like me, my sons, and the CF that will be fighting and dieing so you can live in your glass house of fantasy, while you sip on your friuty drinks and listen to Liberace.

Alex A.,
I feel and share your frustration with the CBC.
Here are some of my rants;

All the coverage on Mike Duffy, who cares about who paid back the taxpayer, how about the taxpayers got thier money back!
Incidently, Mike Duffy was about number twenty five at the bottom of the list. Senator Harb owed three times the money, was arrested and indicted first, yet Duffy gets brought forward, and Harb goes on the back burner. Not news worthy.

How bribing an elected Provincial MP in Ontario? Not news worthy.
How about parading Dean Delmastro in shackles because he misspent his own money on his campaign? Who got to decide that? Nothing on the $343,000,.00 illegal union donations in Quebec that Mulcair bought his seats with? Not news worthy.
How about pediphile Benjamin Levin writing the gay pornographic sex ed curriculum for Ontario’s children? How about the match between the statement of facts at his trial, and the language used in the curriculum? They are the same!!!! The ciriculum is for grooming our children for perverts! Not news worthy.
How about Trudeau’s comment on the child tax benefit and other family benefits that pay the wealthy? Well as a single father, I can tell you those benefits are pro rated, meaning, the more you make, the less you get. There are no millionaire families receiving those benefits! Not news worthy.
How about Mulcair when he says 400,000 jobs lost under the PM’s watch? Except, most were lost in Ontario under McGinty/Wynne, the duo of destruction! Hey Tom, do you think the endless billions of waste, the highest energy costs in the G7 might have something to do with those job losses? So that’s the PM’s fault right? Not news worthy.
Trudeau and Mulcair will do to Canada, what the Liberals have done to Ontario, what Notley is doing to Alberta!

PS,
( Alex, its the raving Ian F-k Stick ).

My name is Brent, and I stand by this message.

Cheers!

Alex,

All of our taxes go to things that we may or may not support. Canada’s official broadcaster is no different. When we get to pick and choose where are taxes go with EVERYTHING – then I am perfectly fine with you checking off that you don’t want your tax money to go to the CBC, just like someone can say that they don’t want their money to go to the military. Until that day happens – you are shit out of luck and are better off if just don’t watch the CBC.

I thought no one watches CBC – how can they influence an election?

Sooner or later, conservatives are going to lose – be it this election or the next one. So your doomsday scenario is inevitable.

Keep Calm and Enjoy Life.

I find The Rebel laughably entertaining – all the hyperbole, drama and fear mongering that Ezra delivers and you all lap up. It’s also important to have an opposing view here and people like me and Terry – provide that to keep The Rebel in check when it comes to bullshit.

No, my father and mother for that matter were wonderful – I had a fantastic childhood.

I was just talking to a friend of mine, he has been a consultant in the oil industry for some time now. He’s not worked for a number of weeks now and has nothing in the future, near or distant, to look forward to as far as finding work in his field. He told me that the reason for companies, for example ConocoPhillips, laid of 2/3’s of their work force the other day, is #1 they are shutting down some of their producing fields, waiting for the oil & gas price to strengthen, which makes sense. #2 is the uncertainty of the announcement of the royalties review, in which the notley crew is holding all companies hostage, nobody’s going to commit to the next quarterly budget not knowing what’s coming next. Most companies and the Alberta government are waiting for the federal government elections to be over to decide on how to proceed. My friend had said that all of the oil& gas sector in Alberta are worried that if mulcair wins that he will take Alberta and Albertans out to the " wood shed", and I for one have to believe this to be true.

Our testament to hypocrisy speaks again!
Jimmy, talk about the pot calling the kettle black. I can give you 1.1 Billion reasons. After all, I employ them. How many of the News agencies and people that you mentioned below take $1.1 Billion from the pockets of Canadians every year. EVERY YEAR JIMMY!!!!

When the CBC gets that kind of money. You can bet that they could influence an election. If the NDP get elected and we end up like Greece, it would be tragic. If the CBC helped put them there with our tax dollars. The severity of that tragedy goes up exponentially. Is that reason enough for you Jimmy.

Now the inevitable question to our dumb hypocrite who thinks he is green and supports the postal service. Jimmy, why do you watch, read, and comment on The Rebel????
I think Jimmy has a New York style, hip, trendy, on the map,metro sexual, narcissistic fetish for being abused and looking stupid. I took one Psychology course in CEGEP. Jimmy, did your father abuse you so much that you have become addicted to it?

Whether you believe in man made climate change or not, I think Brad is onto something with the carbon capture.
http://www.leaderpost.com/technology/Washington+eyes+Saskatchewan+Boundary+carbon+capture+project/11319601/story.html

Notely didn’t meet , because to acknowledge that carbon capture could help mitigate any perceived pollution problems, and help to tear down some of the barriers the left puts up to stop the keystone, and gateway, wasn’t something Notely wants anything to do with. She has no intention of working with the industry.

She could have put a spin on this for optics, and still gone down the sorry lane of the left, but she wasn’t quick enough or smart enough to pick up on it. She’s going down.
