WATCH: Alberta farmers rally against NDP's Bill 6 (Did you know it criminalizes children's 4H clubs?)

Rebel Staff
 

For those of you that don’t know, Bill 6 is Rachel Notley's latest attack on rural Alberta.

It extends labor regulation, including child labour laws, workers compensation coverage and unionization rights to farm workers. Farming isn't a 9 to five job. It doesn't need 9 to 5 rules that work for unions and urban office workers.

So on Friday afternoon, farmers and ranchers took to the legislature to tell Notley to kill Bill 6. There were signs, plenty of signs. There were ponies and even a turkey.

But most importantly there were farm families that came to fight for their way of life. There were impassioned speeches from people who'd have preferred their tractor cab over the speakers podium.

I had the privilege of talking to these concerned farmers and ranchers. I met Clayton. He's a young man from Ponoka who is in his 4-H Beef Club. He understood why this bill is bad. He even had ways to fix it. That makes perfect sense to me. He has more "on the farm" experience than the entire NDP caucus.

Freedom fighting farmer and Wildrose MLA Rick Strankman took to the microphone, too. Strankman was instrumental in getting the Canadian Wheat Board killed through his act of civil disobedience. Strankman assured the crowd he would fight to change Bill 6, just like he fought for farmers before.

I went to the rally to listen to farmers and ranchers, and that's more than the NDP did before they wrote this bill.

The overwhelming theme on the steps of the legislature from the farmers is that this rally was about the future. It's about the future of the family farm in Alberta and farmers aren't going to let it be stolen from them without a fight.

Here at TheRebel.media, we're part of that fight. Help us send a message to Rachel Notley's NDP government:

“We need the WR to lead daily protests at the legislature. The people are angry and do want to protest, but they need the will of a strong leader. "

You need more than protest DEBORAH, you need disruption. The press will not cover right-wing protest…but they ae forced to cover disruption. You say the people are angry, well, if they’re angry enough they’ll go the disruption route. And, if they’re angry enough, leaders will emerge.

And when those leaders do appear, I’ve got some advice for them:
Don’t negotiate, and don’t let the police intimidate you with threats of arrest or charges….just go ahead and do it. Gather up as many committed people with tractors and trucks and big equipment as you can, pick a date , and send out your press releases to one and all: PISSED OFF LANDOWNERS PROMISE TO BRING EDMONTON TO A STANDSTILL…or something to that effect.

If you need some help or advice from folks who have been there/done that: http://www.canadianlandowneralliance.ca/contact-canadian-landowner-alliance.html

What will it take before Alberta stands up to her and gets rid of her one way or another. Hopefully she goes out with a bang though, so other leaders in this country get the message loud and clear….

I keep trying to get this across, with limited success obviously – It isn’t about farms, or oil production – it’s about resource and land control – this Dip syndicate is the beachhead for UN Agenda 21 perfidy – which is as you may or not know, is a plan by internationalist socialists to capture private wealth, property and resources in the west and subjugate us to a global socialist agenda run by a central global commissariate we can’t vote for.

To recognise and terminate this agenda 21 legislating, done in all local levels, is half the battle towards defeating this draconian globalist poison in our nation. It is best to head these A-21 legislating off in the legislatures and community councils – parties have to know that carrying this A-21 agenda (expanding government control over private business/property/resources) is a quick walk to the political ash heap. Those in majority government who do this should be de-legitimized by the opposition walking out and refusing to take part in A-21 global governance. People should resign themselves to mass civil disobedience of laws which represent foreign governance land/resource planning.

BTW- don’t count on a “conservative” government to rescue you in 4 yrs – these globalist regimes do the same thing Obama has done, they buy support with the wealth they steal, they change the voter demographic to subsidy dependency – once 51% of the voter base is reliant on the klepto-socialist ruling cabal, it’s game over for freedom, independence and morality as we know it. Change and resistance starts with you, no one else.

Short of outright rebellion the only other option is force a recaĺl legislation.there is a petition on change.org with close to 35000 signatures but it needs to be more a lot more.rebellion may be our only chance.not a protest but a determined march on the legislature by hundreds of thousands of citizens who will not leave until an election is called

This is just another example of the idiocy of the National Destruction Party. They are entering into an area about which they know nothing – seems that is the same for most areas as the NDP is comprised of mostly know-nothings who want to seem like they are useful individuals in this world. The something-for-nothing gang is out of its depth when it comes to something as complicated as farming or any other area of business or industry! Remember NDP = National Destruction Party!

Checking none of the above simply means that you threw your vote in the garbage. It would be better to not vote at all.

Tell you what, the big danger isn’t what the Government is doing out in the open, but rather, what Alberta’s farm organizations are doing behind the scenes with the Government, the eco-parasites, and the animal welfare arseholes.

Here’s a pretty good indicator that will tell you if your favourite farm org has been sleeping with your enemies: check out your farm org websites and look for the three slimy S words: stakeholder, sustainability, and stewardship.

If your boys and girls are using them, there’s a 99 percent chance they’ve already been compromised. Watch your wallets and watch your property rights.

AB Parrot. If that happens then they must have hired some of the useless ex-prime minister’s people to rig votes.

As much as this back and forth is very entertaining, that’s all it is.

Progressives are out-flanking you as you speak, and all you want to do is gum your jaws.

While the next election will see greater support for WR, the election will be stolen, through gerrymandering and vote-rigging.

What are you going to do then? Gum your jaws some more?
commented 2015-11-28 19:37:48 -0500
If we HAVE to vote for someone, maybe our ballots should have a “NONE OF THE ABOVE” option.

That way we can say, “Hey. I did my civic duty and voted but, even my party of choice had a useless jerk so we’re demanding you field new candidates and run another election.”

With social media there is no reason an election campaign has to cost money or time because all a politician has to do is before a camera and say their piece.

Heck maybe if they have to be on camera for everything they say, we can even an ap or something on our phones that have some kind of “emotional/temperature/poker tell” system that can warn us if a politician is lying through their rotten teeth.

Charles, I am not so sure that we would have had a WildRose or an NDP minority if people had just voted according to their conscience. When I looked at the vote counts for the riding, a significant number of them where the NDP won that riding, I had noticed the WildRose were close behind. The only place where that did not hold true as much was in Edmonton.

It is just my hunch, but I think that if those that are conservatives that wanted the PCs out and voted NDP to make sure of that, because as you said they thought the NDP had the best chance, had just voted the WildRose instead, we would have a WR majority. But it is all academic now. Now we have to figure out how to get them out of office fast, or how to mitigate the damage they are causing.

Dave said, “Ralph klien must be rolling over in his grave.”

Well, at least laughing at us Albertans and saying, “’You idiots!”

@ Sam Young – 4-H clubs are for youth. The 4-H stands for head, heart, hands, and health. They are meant to help kids develop leadership and responsibility focusing on being good citizens and participants in their communities. They usually focus on developing skills through a focus on agriculturally and animal husbandry and often incorporate science, engineering, and technology programs as well.

I, too, am a city boy so I did not have the privilege of attending any 4H groups.

@ Dan Chomistek – Good post. The only thing I disagree with is that I tend to always vote regardless even if it is for the “least of the evils.”

Reasonable thought. However, when voting one should always vote their preference of the best of all evils…ie…what is good.
I worked W/R in April and came across W/R voters who said they were voting NDP for the simple reason it was a the best vote to remove the P/C’s. How many made this idiotic move? If the natural right that voted NDP in protest had voted their conscience we would now have either an NDP minority or a W/R minority and a much safer 4 or less years as a result. Even a P/C minority would have been positive.

Consequently, I have no sympathy with r-wing that voted NDP. They have what they deserve. However, lots of sympathy for constituents true to their values. Negative voting gets you just that…negative results…and without the justification to oppose.

Socialism has reared it’s ugly head, both Provincially and Federally in Canada. There is only one answer, Decapitation. We do not need lame Brained Politicians misruling this country.
Get rid of the socialist brain washers that infest our school system. Get rid of the dogma of Islam that is forced in to the minds of students. If we do this, then perhaps our children will grow up and vote for freedom. They will understand the eves of Unions and left wing politics.

Charlton G.
This is the reason Alberta voted NDP.
The party in power was corrupt and the ONLY way a citizen has to stop such behavior is to vote those responsible out.
First and foremost, the corrupt have to be sent packing and that’s all there is to it. If not, they have no reason to believe they are doing anything wrong and will continue to do so, usually further pushing the line.
Technically, Notley isn’t corrupt. She’s just an idiot who hadn’t had access to power.
The problem is, once you kick out the corrupt you have to work with what’s left.
You can choose not to vote, and low voter turn out is a statement in and of itself, but politicians always ignore that, smearing those as irresponsible and saying they have no right to complain. (It’s an irrelevant argument that can be countered by, “Well you voted these idiots in so shut up.”)
Nobody is ever going to agree 100% with a politician but, if the politician is honest about their policies a voter can make an informed decision, saying, “Well. I don’t like this % of what they stand for, but the bigger % of their policies I like or can live with so they get my vote.”
I didn’t vote in this Alberta election not just because I couldn’t to enable corruption, but because the only other choices were people who had proven they were idiots.
It’s hard enough to make an informed vote when politicians change policies with the wind, but only a fool votes for someone who actually tells you how they’re going to screw you, and you have proof they’ve done so in the past.
The NDP policies are no secret.
All you have to do is look at every single province they’ve run.
Few things are 100% in this world, but the NDP have a 100% failure rate. Pick a province. All have been abysmal failures under the NDP and those who continue to vote NDP fall under the “None are so blind as those who will not see.” classification. Or they were of the upcoming generations who think they’re entitled to free everything and always swallow such promises hook line and sinker.
Both voter groups are socialism’s bread and butter.
What the rest of the Alberta voters did was the equivalent of a “Hail Mary” because they were PRAYING once Notley got in and saw how things work she might haul back a bit on some of her thinking.
But “Hail Mary’s” are desperate last ditch attempts that rarely work and politicians disregard the ‘Lack of Voter Turn Out" stat so they can tout they got in because their brilliance has finally been realized by the masses.
Notley will never admit that she won the race because every single other competitor didn’t just die on the track; they committed suicide.

True Peter N,

However, if she was not invisible, she should be doing the other portion of her job as an MLA and Crown Minister. That is, she should be explaining to the constituents, why her Government’s policy is good for them; it is her government and, as you say, she must promote the government line as Crown Minister. However, even that is not happening.

If she is neither representing her constituents to government nor representing government to constituents; then is she in a moral dilemma?

Is she a prairie socialist caught in an urban socialist government and feels the best way to deal with the conflict of principles is to be invisible?

As I noted previously, she is a nice person, but with a nice post-retirement gig.

Hey Notley and the rest of you eastern establishment pinko usurpers, listen up;
Today The People were at the doors of the legislature, they were angry and frightened, but they were there!
This time they had signs and microphones. I hope you’re listening and taking heed because next time The People show up at the doors of their legislature, in their righteous wrath , it may well be with shot guns, and rifles and pitch forks and burning torches, and blood in their eyes…

“…The bread to keep us quiet was not so plentiful as it had been, and whilst the circuses were glitzy and full of ‘celebs’, they somehow failed to shut us up or to disguise from us what was happening.
In the UK and the USA the old parties seem irrelevant – vehicles for career politicians who don’t care which team they drive for as long as it is the winning one. And out here, beyond the Thunderdome, we’re beginning to see that whoever else wins, we lose. We don’t much like it. But we are slow to anger – and yet our rulers should heed Kipling’s words, put into the mouth of a Norman noble on his death bed, talking to his son:
“The Saxon is not like us Normans. His manners are not so polite.
But he never means anything serious till he talks about justice and right.
When he stands like an ox in the furrow – with his sullen set eyes on your own,
And grumbles, ‘This isn’t fair dealing,’ my son, leave the Saxon alone.
Our rulers should beware the phenomenon described in ‘The Wrath of the Awakened Saxon”
It was not part of their blood,
It came to them very late,
With long arrears to make good,
When the Saxon began to hate.
Well, we know this isn’t ‘fair dealing’ – so they should beware.”

Thanks for the up-date Scott, it is nice to know Marg is alive and well, if ineffective as an MLA and Crown Minister.

Of course the people of Spirit River would be welcoming; the people of the Peace Country have ever been so :)
And to be fair to her, Marg is a personally pleasant person, but just way beyond her Peter Principle level, and muzzled.
