More Bill 6 documents: Bureaucrats knew NDP Ministers “clueless” about rural Alberta culture

Rebel Staff
 

The Rebel has even more new documents about Bill 6 received through access to information filings.

Bill 6 is the NDP’s bad law that puts union rules onto tens of thousands of Alberta farms under the guise of safety. This latest stack of documents reveals more bungling, arrogance and ignorance from the NDP and their bureaucrats.

The Rebel has a copy of a document called “Alberta Farm Safety Program Delivery Model & Anticipated Reaction to the Proposed Changes”. It’s from August 31 2015. It’s a detailed strategy for the roll out of Bill 6.

It reveals that bureaucrats in Forestry and Agriculture anticipated a bad reaction from farmers and knew their partners in the Jobs Ministry did not have the knowledge of rural “culture” to deal with an onslaught of panicked farmers.

Watch my video to see the documents. You can see what the bureaucrats anticipated from farmers and why I think they didn’t do anything about it.

Destroyers of this beautiful province, what a shame, I still cannot believe I live in a communist ndp province. Never would have believed it. But she is buying votes at an alarming rate especially in Deadmonton. And don’t think for a minute that these parasite government workers all 47,000 new ones will vote for another party in because they will NEVER want to give their jobs up, imagine the huge salaries, huge benefits and platinum pensions they have now. It will be damn near impossible to get her out. This is why she is so arrogant and dismissal of any protests.

Alberta rise up and get rid of this clown…oh I forgot the RCMP took all your guns!

Jason – not all of us closed our eyes and voted for the communists because we knew better. The younger generations seem to need a lesson as to why you should never elect communists to office.

“I would love to say, ‘wow, I am surprised.’ But cannot. I would also like to sympathize with a number of farmers who voted Non-Democratic Party, because they wanted to send a message to the P/C’s. But cannot. Well done negative voters. You fully deserve what you have. Live with it until 2020. Sadly, the rest of us have to as well.”

Yes…we all have to live with the proverbial ‘bad haircut’ for the next 3 years and counting. Maybe after that, people will do their homework before they cast their ballot. After all, it’s not like what the NDP stood for was shrouded in secrecy. Anyone who paid attention to Alberta politics for the last decade alone would have known full well that the NDP are basically the professional hecklers and internet trolls of the Legislature. And we turned around and gave them the keys to the province. Well…that ought to teach us.

In reference to the next election: They won’t get a single farmer vote. They won’t get a single rural area seat. They won’t get a single Calgary seat. They will only get seats in an Edmonton enclave, where those who get their money from the NDP, live.

The NDP have contempt for farmers because the farmers have been painted as corporate, herbicide and pesticide spewing, over farming, soil killing, frankenfood selling, profit mongers who have been playing fast and loose with peoples safety for far too long.

In reality, they are the fine, caring, flora and fauna respecting people who supply the hipsters with wonderful fresh food at farmers’ markets throughout the land.

Love the photo, one of my favorite places foothills – is this just south of Black Diamond? awesome trails and riding stables there – of course those trail riding ops and ranches are now all covered under WCB – Is the Stampede Chuck races next?

Even from a common sense point of view it would have been better for Notley to milk the oil & gas teat to pay for her green energy plan (none of which have ever to date even worked, but that’s a different complaint) before she destroyed the oil and gas sector.

But I guess we all know, according to our “betters” (the left), that Notley is not responsible for the economic crash in Alberta because of the price of oil, right?

This tax is for our own good, just listed to your betters and obey! ;o)

Unbelievable! Did anyone else besides me notice how the the government refers to the farmers? As Clients? What the F is that? Since when are farmers or any tax payer a client? Who works for who? This is exactly how and what they think of the taxpayers! They have lost their way and we let them talk to us like that! Enough it’s time for a revolt!!!!
commented 2016-03-29 03:18:42 -0400
Sorry Notley, you will have no legacy to show you grand kids, unless it to show them what not to do.

Does Ezra not give Sheila sick days for her bad throat? Maybe it is time to unionize to get some employee benefits.

Notley and the NDP have declared war on the Alberta economy, the oil and gas industry, agriculture, free enterprise, and the taxpayers. With any war there are invariably casualties. I can only hope Notley and the NDP MLAs are among them. Politically speaking of course. ;)

The NDP probably think hay comes from that machine thingie they see when they drive by farmland.

Notley remains at war with Alberta.

Wake up and deal with your enemy Alberta.

Andrew, do you have any suggestions on how to deal with Notley? I am very interested in seeing/hearing your ideas.

Anybody in Alberta feel like separating from Ottawa? Check out the link:

Alberta Independence Movement is working to get signatures and register as a political party. Time to stop just the bitching but get on with actually doing something about Trudeau and the rest of the destroyers. All of the other western provinces have started their separation movement and have their own facebook site.

This government really has to go, and I don’t mean now. I mean F@#KING RIGHT NOW.

But like everyone else is stating, it isn’t surprizing about these low lifes. They keep dealing in death of a province and wealth of the province.

NDP?

Even though they might not have known – simply did not care.

As bad as the islamics.

Convert or else……….

Well done negative voters. You fully deserve what you have. Live with it until 2020.

Sadly, the rest of us have to as well.
