Wall’s big win should give all Canadian conservatives hope

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

When Stephen Harper lost the election last October, I said a factor was that he had fatigued voters after nine years; and that the media was against him, and the unions, and universities, and NGOs.

Well, Brad Wall is in his ninth year as premier, and the Saskatchewan media is against him, and the unions, and universities, and NGOs.

But last night he won a third majority in a row. Wall's Saskatchewan Party got 63% of the vote. Incredible.

Let’s see what happens in Manitoba’s election two weeks from now. If they get the courage to break free from the NDP, we’ve got ourselves a little trend. I hope so.

I want to believe that Canadians believe in freedom...

I can’t make sense of the Liberals’ drastic and distrubing immigration and citizenship changes. Joining me to try to explain them is Toronto Sun columnist Candice Malcolm.

(PS: She has a NEW book coming out about this very topic! Pre-register for your FREE copy at LosingTruthNorth.ca)

Usually when we talk about Canadian oil, we talk about Alberta, but tonight, we’re looking at New Brunswick’s insane ban on fracking with Brian MacDonald, a PC MLA in that province, who wants to make it legal again.

Finally: I'll tell you about the NEWEST show at TheRebel.media -- "Culture Wars" with Tiffany Gabbay.

It debuts TONIGHT at 9pm ET, and it will be free for everyone to watch for the first few episodes, so CLICK HERE to check it out!

I used to live in Saskatchewan (during part of Brad Wall’s tenure as premier) and I did not find him terribly conservative. He spent money like crazy and did his best to scuttle the acquisition of PCS by BHP Billiton. He, and predecessor (Lorne Calvert) lived off the reforms that took place under Romanow. Given the incredibly weak conservative credentials of Brad Wall, I must say, I am concerned about direction of our society if this is the best that the conservative movement can come up with.
Giving Brad Wall his due, the guy is an excellent salesman and was instrumental in attracting business to the province when Alberta foolishly chose Ed Stelmach as premier.

RICHARD DAVID VANDERLUBBE, if you had to pick one, would you say winning elections is about addition or subtraction?

Bravo Zulu, that’s kind of what I’m thinking, Wall needs to stay in Sask. and keep it strong. However, this is his third term he can’t stay Premier forever. I hope he is grooming people to carry on , when that day eventually comes. When it does, and if the west hasn’t already separated by then, if he got on the french lessons and ran federally, I wouldn’t complain.

I hope Manitoba gets ‘right’. All they would have to do is mimic what Wall is doing in Sask. It’s a winning formula.

New Brunswick is having a leadership race for the PC’S in prep for their 2018 provincial election. Brian Macdonald looks like a good pick to me. Maybe some youth pop. will get home in time to vote. Lots of entitled takers is about all that’s left in New Brunswick at the moment. What a boon that would be if N.B. actually started taking advantage of their God given resources.
It’s an interesting time in Canadian politics.

Tiff’s show was very informative. But she isnt as animated as she could be. First time jitters I’m sure. The clash of cultures will define the beginning of this century. It has the potential to become a full on shooting civil war.

James Barnes said: “Did you ever think – If he takes the banks, Justin becomes dictator for life.”
He has. Note the “bail – in” provision in the Federal Budget recently presented! A sop to the banks for cooperation…………..

Sam Young… I do agree that Brad Wall is “one of a kind”… That’s why the pressure will be on him in the coming months and years to kick some butt at the federal level…

Even if we Manitobans elect the conservative party, none of us are expecting much change. Somebody like Brad Wall is one of a kind. Nobody in the Manitoba conservative party has one tenth of Brad Wall’s abilities.

If the conservatives win, it is because of vote splitting. The NDP are quite afraid of the rising popularity of the provincial liberal party. The NDP got some liberal candidate disqualified for working as an enumerator. And now the NDP are running attack ads on the liberals, saying that they don’t even have candidates in all ridings.

And the 19th is coming in Manitoba and Greg Selinger is already starting to pack his bags… I would be there to help him if I didn’t live three provinces further West!… Wow!.. What a week… And even The Red Star admits that Winnie The Poo’s popularity is in the toilet!?… Wow, indeed…

As far as Separation is concerned I have a checklist with some non-negotiable items. We need PR or STV, no appointed second chamber, mandatory service for fit 16-21 males, no visa free agreements, (sub) nationalize all the resources…I can go on and on at this rate, the best solution I think is to use Wall as a platform for reform in the country. We need it badly.

In many ways Bravo Zulu that was a very good post. If you look at Brad’s numbers with the SK GDP year over year he has done great things considering the environment. Not to mention king ralph had the bank account taken care of for future govt’s until the socialistic vampires arrived in Alberta. Equalization right now is nothing more than intragovernmental welfare for Ontario’s latest left wing drug trip offering massive amounts of spending with the highest sub national debt in the world. And then there is Quebec, also a vampire in many ways, with their preferential treatment in many industries. The numbers don’t lie, their GDP and revenue do not make up for the standard of living they enjoy…..Why am I footing the bill?

Congrats to Wall. Brad Wall is breaking new ground in Saskatchewan. Lets hope it’s a trend that spreads across Canada.

The Liberal’s terrorists for votes plan. I look forward to reading the book, just signed up. Trudeau is whatever his speechwriters say he is at any given time. He’s there to look pretty & read speeches, not think.

It’s never about science, it’s never about the environment, it’s never about economics, it’s about creating dependency & taking control of as much of the economy as possible & making government as large & intrusive as possible.

The first “Culture Wars” episode was fantastic. It looks like The Rebel has another winner in the lineup.

You only said one thing correctly Sean. “The federal government could down very hard”
commented 2016-04-05 22:41:30 -0400
ok sean, reasonable until you typed Leader with the capital. Funny, bow down, and go buy some fancy socks. Not for your feet, please stick them in your gobber. You’re a funny little troll, keep posting.

Ya well Redford went there too, Richard. Didn’t make much difference

Could Brad Wall start an Alberta Party?

Brad Wall? The guy who attends Bilderberg meetings? Naw, keep your limp-wrist milktoast globalist and give me a real right-wing option.

Good news. I hope we can learn from this.

Been visiting NB for the past 3 weeks. Drove down to Mispec last week to where I could see the LNG export terminal. I’m told it’s running at only10% capacity. All the gas comes from Nova Scotia. Meanwhile next door at the crude import terminal I could smell the foreign oil being unloaded from a supertanker. They’re receiving two or three trainloads of American crude a day at the refinery. Apparently Canadian crude rarely goes further east than Montreal. There are only 12,000 consumers and small businesses in NB using natural gas,the transmission cost is higher than anywhere else in North America.
The bright side? Ha! There were two economic development announcements while I was here; a medical marijuana grow-op, and an airline call-center, with a potential total of about 500 jobs. How long those jobs will be here is anybody’s guess, most locals figure just until the government subsidies run out.
And I thought living under communist rule in Alberta was grim.

It’s just a local provincial election, with a polarised electorate rallying behind two parties.

It’s historic, in the way how the NDP is being so poorly rejected in its bastion of Saskatchewan.

Small town and rural Saskatchewan is very conservative, socially and fiscally. Urban Saskatchewan is much more progressive, but less dominated by trade unions now a days.

There is a lot of anger towards the bitterly divided Liberals, who were at one time coalition partners with the Calvert NDP back in 1999-2003. They’ve been shut out of the Legislature for four elections since 2003.

If Wall plays hardball against our Leader, the federal government could down very hard on the Wall government and compell it into obedience. Wall must become more accommodating with Ottawa and the other provinces

Brad needs to stay out of federal politics an build a new western Canada.

He needs to tell the feds there will no transfer cash.

Rather than the provinces borrowing and giving to Ottawa – the islamic selfie boy can borrow and give to kebec (and bombardier)

He needs to tell the feds all islamics brought to Saskatchewan will be immediately trucked to Ontario.

He needs to tell the feds if there is any problem with what he is doing and they try to stiff arm him, he will fire all the RCMP and create a provincial police force. And yes, he CAN do that.

He needs to tell the feds to piss off and leave his province – soon to be a country – alone – otherwise the feds will guarantee borders will be set up and passports needed to pass through.

Brad could do this and provide a huge shake up to the east coast welfare states and blood sucking kebec as well as to lefty, entitled welfare Ontario.

I think he would have the backing of the province of Saskatchewan – and the backing of many westerners – likely a majority of them.

Good show, Ezra. Looking forward to Tiffany’s show.
