Alberta NDP accused of shady fundraising for anti-oil Ontario brethren: Wildrose Party demands ethics investigation

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

Rachel Notley is accused of more shady fundraising. This time it’s for people who hate Alberta oil: her NDP brethren in Ontario. 

Rachel Notley was a guest at a $10,000 per plate Ontario NDP fundraiser with Ontario NDP leader Andrea Horwath where leaders of large multi-national corporations were in attendance. The Ontario NDP are notorious for slagging Alberta’s energy sector.

Peter Buns, NDP MPP for the Ontario riding of Danforth, has blogged about how Alberta’s pipelines are dangerous. He encouraged the Liberal government in Ontario to take a pipeline stance similar to BC or Quebec. Both of those provinces reject Alberta’s pipelines to tidewater.

Yet, Rachel Notley made a cross country trip to get that man and his ilk re-elected?

The Premier’s spokesperson Cheryl Oates can’t keep her story straight about the Ontario fundraiser. Reporters, including one for the Globe and Mail, have said that Cheryl Oates told them the Premier was in Ontario to pick up an award. Now we know that story isn’t true.

But changing stories are nothing new for Ms. Oates. She tried to tell explain away the Rebel’s removal from the royalty review press conference as an act of hotel security. Not true. Then she tried to tell people myself and Rebel contributor Holly Nicholas weren’t accredited to cover the legislature. When that excuse was debunked by the Legislature Press Gallery, Oates said we weren’t journalists.

The shifting sands of Oates’ excuses are constant. The Wildrose Party is demanding an ethics investigation into Notley’s visit to help her Ontario friends.

The Premier’s office denies any wrongdoing but given the NDP’s changing stories, further examination is warranted.

Burke,
You’re delusional to believe that.

Socialism exists in many forms all around the world even today.

Conjectures and ideologies don’t always map to reality.

Melanie. According to the IPCC, Canada is 1.5% of all global emissions, not 3.5, and considering some countries like China and India are still increasing, that suggests our % is going down without doing a single thing!!

Marx Socialism
According to Marx the proletarian revolution would establish the SOCIALIST dictatorship of the proletariat. To achieve the SOCIALIST dictatorship of the proletariat, three things would have to be achieved: (1) The elimination to all right to private property; (2) The dissolution of the family unit; and (3) Destruction of what Marx referred to as the “opiate of the people,” religion.
Communists must work to establish SOCIALISM!!!!!
Does any of this sound familiar???

Yes a premier especially for Alberta should be explaining how the energy industry supports all of Canada and that if we stay land locked it will be dead and then we can just keep importing more conflict oil made in countries who don’t give 2 shits about the environment. We can send our dollars out and receive zero in. Makes sense to me (sarcasm). One thing I would like the environmentalist to try is living on an island with nothing made from petroleum products and see how they make out. This would be called going back to the early 1900’s. The other thing I wish the environmental,anti-oil and gas people would understand is that China and India have the worst environmental footprint on earth (20%). Let’s think about what they use………. “coal” that’s right so let’s say we stay at our 3.5% emissions but were able to pipeline some natural gas to China and India where they could then replace their coal use with natural gas and “boom” you slowly eliminate coal and China’s emissions. You know they won’t stop just because they said they would “try.”"to lower emissions. People can’t breath there and it still continues. If we can pipe Gas and send LNG it actually would be a step at lowering China and India footprint by phasing out coal. I’m convinced that they must not give a shit about environment but just shutting down big bad oil industry which revenues have afforded every single Canadian a pretty good life.

So, Notley is helping campaign for the Ontario NDP?

Shouldn’t a premier be doing something else, like being a premier?

Notley’s dementia just continues to grow. Even her Communications people can get the optics right in the middle of all this chaos.

Notley will ousted, by her own party, in the next 12 months – that is a certainly.

Shady is what shady does.

That money raised will come back to Notley. She had to go for more coaching from Wynnie the criminal, on how to steal the rest of our rights, and kill off the rest of our capitalist system.

What!!! The Non-Democratic Party is being non-democratic? Say it ain’t so!

BTW, does anyone know who paid for Notley’s trip to Ontario
commented 2016-02-25 17:21:27 -0500
I’d say DON’T put up any pictures of Notley and her wreaking crew, cause every time you do, my pointing finger on my right hand gets itchy

Hey Sheila. Take it easy on Notley will ya. She is under a lot of pressure and is still learning how to be corrupt. She is not very bright and hasn’t been schooled like those professionals in Ottawa. Why do you think she always wants to hang around Wynne and Horvath? It is not because she likes them and she hasn’t learned how to lie like the big boys Beavis and Butthead. By the way, could you please put up a more recent picture of Notley, you know the one where she looks like a witch. Thanks.

The Rebel should create a new ad campaign “Allison Redford, do you miss me yet?” She was corrupt but doesn’t hold a candle to Notley.

If the hope for Alberta is some rotted out progressive, then Alberta is in bigger trouble that we already know it to be.

There is always new leaders to be had. Redford used Alberta as her own personal bank account. Never Redford again.

If you give Shiela her own byline with the rebel, would that make her a “journalist”?
commented 2016-02-25 15:14:33 -0500
Did Notley pay $10,000 for her dinner with tax payer money or did she get in free? How much was her cost to Alberta tax payers for that trip?

ndp shady? I am shocked and appalled at such an accusation! why just the other day down at the union hall after paying my forced union dues the un-elected un-accountable union bosses were telling us how wonderful the ndp is! I suppose the next thing The Rebel will say is that unions are running an extortion racket for political protection and favours!
commented 2016-02-25 14:48:34 -0500
If Alberta puts focus on the college students that are their NDP MLA’s/MPP’s and can squeeze them into resigning, forced by-elections will dethrone Notley before this pig destroys Alberta altogether.

Remember, Hitler is a national socialist as is Notley and the tactical thinking is identical.

Remove them one byelection at atime if that is what it takes to rid these communists.

Go after her! She is beginning to retreat so everyone opposed to this NDP government needs to advance!
