Federal NDP vote an “end to Alberta” with LEAP Manifesto, so what's Notley's next move?

Rebel Staff
 

The New Democrat Party held their national convention over the weekend in Edmonton. At that convention, they adopted the LEAP Manifesto. Like most manifestos these days, the LEAP Manifesto is a hot mess of every imaginable social justice cause rolled into an unattainable screed of fairytale demands.

The resolution to adopt the LEAP Manifesto is clear: “The NDP recognizes and supports the Leap Manifesto as a high-level statement of principles that speaks to the aspirations, history, and values of the party.” Now this “high-level statement of principles” calls for some serious socialism and an end to fossil fuels altogether.

This is directly from the LEAP Manifesto:

"The new iron law of energy development must be: if you wouldn’t want it in your backyard, then it doesn’t belong in anyone’s backyard. That applies equally to oil and gas pipelines; fracking in New Brunswick, Quebec and British Columbia; increased tanker traffic off our coasts; and to Canadian-owned mining projects the world over.”

The NDP just voted to adopt the end of Alberta and Rachel Notley is trying to distance herself from the Federal Party. But is she really so far removed? Not when her MLAs spent the summer campaigning for LEAP Manifesto signatories like Jacqui Gingras. Jobs Minister, Lori Sigurdson campaigned for LEAPster Gingras while Alberta bled jobs. Shaye Anderson campaigned for Gingras while one in two jobs in Nisku, the industrial park in his riding, vanished.

The Alberta NDP are not that distanced from the LEAP Manifesto, but they’d sure like to be far away from the electoral fall out it will cause for them.

For all the SJW, socialist, green energy, AGW, open border types, we have designed “your perfect” community. You will be housed in a compound surrounded by six hundred foot turbines, mosques that call for prayer all day, drug injection sites in your hovel, no heat from oil, gas or wood. No meat unless you’re a cannibal and you must capture your breath, farts and burps and bury them beneath ground. No clothing made from synthetics, animals or any other natural item that may emit Co2. You may not resist any interloper from your den, cave or tree hollow. That would be exclusionary. If people from another tribe enter your compound you must relinquish all of your stores and habitat to them. To not do so would be exclusionary. Boys are girls, and girls are boys, and some are both. I can’t figure it out but I’m sure you can as you huddle in your frozen tree hut trying to hear the call to prayer as the turbines drown out the sound as they rain dead birds upon you as if heaven sent. What a glorious world you have carved out for yourselves.
Me and the rest of the world, life goes on.

Thanks for the update Sheila. I knew Notley was lying and trying to save face. Like everything she does with this government, Notley is a total and pathetic failure.

Thank heavens we have the Rebel to give us the real story. All the major news outlets in Canada colluded to report the NDP convention rejected the Leap manifesto. Only the Rebel was able to tell us the NDP actually “adopted the manifesto”.

The Globe and Mail — Canada’s self-styled “national newspaper” — claimed that the NDP delegates even refused to endorse a motion to discuss the manifesto at a later date. Instead, according to The Globe: "the delegates approved a watered-down version of the resolution that stipulates that specific policies advocated in the manifesto ‘can and should be debated and modified on their own merits and according to the needs of various communities and all parts of Canada.’ "

Imagine, hundreds of media outlets present at the convention and the Rebel was the only one to report this major event.

As much as I would like the NDP to LEAP off the tallest cliff, I have to admit that I hope the NDP do not completely crater by going so far left. We want them to still exist so they can split the left vote.

Jacque Gingras’s riding is starting to hurt because of the Notehole gang’s dipper policies, it gets worse every month

NDP needs to look before it Leaps. As Brian Lilly stated in his Post “The NDP have just voted themselves into obscurity” They will be so far to the left that even Stalin would be embarrassed.

Normal people will not miss them.

Is the NDP saying people want windmills in their backyard?

Declare war on Alberta and Canada!? Careful what you wish for ndp and Leap nut cases!

Marilyn Neilson Very good way of making your point.

So using the LEAP Manifesto logic wind turbines and solar power “farms” should not be built since no one wants these monstrosities in their back yards. And the NDP will have to stop flying using cell phones and cease the use of fossil fuels and wood burning stoves to heat their homes. What else will they have to give up if there is no more oil and its by products? The list will be almost endless. But Ms. Klein flies around the world giving lectures about the evils of oil.

I wouldn’t trust Rachel Notley if she were my mother.

I sure as s*&t don’t want a wind turbine in my yard, but I really don’t want Liberals or NDP either. No one wants anything in their backyards.
