Alberta’s Liberal MPs vote AGAINST motion to support pipelines; what happened to Kent Hehr’s campaign promise?

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator

The Trudeau Liberals talk a good game about supporting oil and gas, but they refuse to put that support on the official record.

A motion by Conservative MPs Candice Bergen and Maxime Bernier called upon the House of Commons to support pipelines as the safest way to move oil, recognize the importance of oil and gas and to express support for the Energy East pipeline.

This was a brilliant political move. Conservatives forced the Liberals to cut the talk and put their support or lack thereof, on the record for all of us to see. And boy did we ever see it. It's a stunning visual. We saw every single Conservative MP stand to support Alberta and Canadian oil and gas. And we saw every single Liberal oppose it. Bergen and Bernier made the Liberals put their opposition of pipelines and our energy sector on the record. The liberals did not break ranks. Not even the 4 from Alberta.

Speaking of Alberta Liberals, remember Kent Hehr from last week? He's the Calgary Liberal MP who thinks you all find chronic unemployment and underemployment "refreshing". Hehr didn’t break ranks with the party to support Alberta and his constituents. But is refusing to support pipelines really what he campaigned on? No.

Kent Hehr assured voters he would support pipelines in a Reddit post during the Federal Election Campaign.

Hehr wrote: Rest assured when elected, I will pound the table on the need for pipelines. It's the safest way to transport oil and it is in the national interest.

Really? Kent Hehr voted against a motion that said just that. These Liberals will say anything to get elected. Hehr has Trudeau's back, not Alberta's.

Hehr betrayed us all for political expediency.

Hehr posted a pic of himself and Joke Lark. I didn’t know he could do comedy?

Boy, has this commentary sunk to new lows. Over the top invective… People being called out to fight? Where’s the rational discourse in all of that? For shame!
Scott: a judge ruled awhile back that a politician who is caught out in a lie is not committing an offence under the law. Strange, but true. Evolution of our society?

Hey GREAT MYTH OF CLIMATE CHANGE, I hate to agree with a flaming liberal like KELLY WEBER, however, I was always taught a person should not make a statement unless they are willing to sign their name to it. It’s taken a long time for me to take that advice as I now realize it lends a lot more credence to your comments.

What do you call it when Gerald Butts is at the bottom of the ocean tied to a concrete block? A GOOD START!

The liberals are likely paying union goons to show up for the crowd photo op. As most Albertans’ hate Junior trudeau.

In Liberal Speak lying is called “campaigning” among other things.

I can tell by this nuts eyes he is a liberal liar.
commented 2016-02-03 07:07:17 -0500
Hehr’s Twitter feed is busy announcing that JT is coming to Alberta and help is on the way. Not sure what he means by “help” because he’s doing everything he can to screw it up on his end.


It should be noted that Hehr may not be updating his own Twitter feed, as there are often contradictory posts. I guess his assistant doesn’t know what his master is doing.

Peter Toth-and that is about as straight forward as it can possibly get.

Sheila, be careful as to not put words into somebody’s mouth, or to twist up their words. In particular, I am referring to how you parrot the refreshed comment.
commented 2016-02-03 00:53:13 -0500
Hehr is a Liberal, therefore he is a liar. This is not a hard concept to understand. Unfortunately many people seem to forget this well known fact comes election time. I guess all the confusion and turmoil that goes with an election confuses some people a little too much.

Why keep talking about a trailer park or mailbox we have community mailboxes in our middle class neighbor hoods where we are all blue collar workers. I see education wasn’t a big thing in your life hey since you resort back to one topic. That’s what small minded unintelligent people do. Is the library staying open late so you can use their community computers. Because your kids wanted to see what books looked like. But if you like we can meet at my 41 foot toy hauler trailer at the storage facility. I will be driving my 2014 3500 dodge 6 inch lifted black truck. And then I will pull Infront of my 500,000 dollar home
That backs onto green space. Where I will enjoy a nice hot tub in my 8 man hot tub then have a nice fire in our custom made fire pit in backyard and then have a nice bbq at the same time on our 16×24 deck. Listening to music on our outdoor speakers that are built into the outside of the house then I’m gonna go upstairs and watch a movie on our 60 inch flat screen while hooked
Up to our 7.1 surround sound harman kardon sound system. Which sounds wicked to days of Thunder. Then I’m gonna have a nice hot steam shower in our shower then jump into our big king size bed and probably get frisky with my hot blonde with amazing fake breasts wife. And be like what a great trailer park we live in. I’m giving tours of what a blue collar life looks like. What dates work for you. I won’t even charge you tax. That’s what a good conservative does.

Just let me know at what trailer park you park your trash or I can meet at the mail box where you pick up your welfare cheque.

That was pretty clever jelly belly. No I’m not afraid of what neighbors or your wife thinks of me after I’ve dumped my loads in her and she comes back for more. Keep talking little person. I can make fun of you all day and night. You
Must be happy you married a whore. What’s your wife’s favorite saying 5 dollars makes her holler 6 dollars makes her swallowa

why is Kent Hehr not being called out in the house for lying? Should Rona not demand his resignation for lying to his constituents?

So can I assume that Kent Hehr does not have any supporters on this site?
Yes Sheila, you dug up the evidence on poor Kent. I think he just had to save his own bacon. Poor guy.

Hehr, who is a quadriplegic and in a wheelchair, therefore, cannot be challenged or called a two-faced liar, lies like the sonofabitch he is. I mean seriously, this guy plays it like that episode of “Community” where this guy won all the debates because he would yell out, “And/But I’m in a wheelchair.”
