EXCLUSIVE: Memo shows Alberta NDP feared farmers’ reaction to Bill 6

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

Last week we told you about the documents the Rebel received through access to information filings about the Alberta NDP’s badly bungled Bill 6.

Bill 6 is officially known as the Enhanced Protection for Farm and Ranch Workers Act and it imposes union labour rules on thousands of Alberta farms and ranches. It was met with outrage and protests. And rightfully so because we know from the documents we showed you last week that the NDP knew their bad law would hurt family farms.

Now we have another document. It’s not a long document but it says so much.

We have an email dated August 6, 2015  from John Brown, an assistant deputy minister in Agriculture and Forestry to a communications director within the same ministry, Stuart Elson.

WATCH my video to see the internal email and the concerns that were being expressed by these bureaucrats.

You’ll be surprised. I was. It seems we were briefly on the same side.

The NDP is a rotting tableau of political cowardnice.

Dr Genius – they fear the people, in spite of their ignorant behaviour. It’s why they are not honest, they are too busy destroying anything good about Alberta.

Why would the NDP fear anything? They know they’ll never be re-elected, so its party time for the next three years!

Good reporting Sheila. I wish Alberta farmers success against their regressive government.

No Democratic Party. Says it all!

I hope that all Alberta farmers defy bill 6. Stand together and there won’t be a thing she can do. Stall this until the next election. Notley should be forced to call an election based on her interference in private business, and her carbon tax. She never ran a platform for either one.

Socialists/Wannabe Communists in Canada have a death lock hold on the three most important governments in Canada; Ontario, Alberta and Federal. Each is working in tandem to bring about their destructive social and environmental destructive policies that will cripple Canada and make the country irrecoverable. Basically, we’re screwed.

Remember Alberta, Notley has declared war on Alberta.

Defend yourselves through all means necessary.
