Notley outsources oilsands opposition by hiring anti-Alberta “proxies” like Tzeporah Berman

Rachel Notley has hired a handful of anti oil, anti Alberta activists to decide the future of the oilsands. It's unbelievable. 

The Oilsands Advisory Group is stacked with anti-oil campaigners who've spent their entire careers taking money to hate Alberta, lobby against our job creators and fight to put more Alberta families on the unemployment lines.

The worst of these radicals is Tzeporah Berman. She was with Greenpeace before cofounding the radical anti pipeline group, Forest Ethics.

Notley says she rejects the Leap Manifesto calling it “naive and tone deaf”. She’d have us believe the Alberta NDP don’t support it like their Federal fellow travellers do. If this is true, why is Notley hiring Berman, an initiating signatory of the anti oil Leap Manifesto, to decide the future of Alberta’s Energy sector?

During the state of the province address in April, Notley did her best to pretend, saying all the right things about pipelines and fair value for our oil. But a few short months later, Rachel Notley hired Berman who says exactly the opposite. Berman has said she wants to keep Canadian oil out of the international market to keep the cost artificially low.

Notley just hired someone who advocates keeping Canadian oil at a discount, costing hundreds of thousands of Canadian jobs. Notley just hired someone who says that not even one more pipeline is acceptable. Not even one.

Regardless of her speeches and fake machinations to the contrary, Notley hasn’t changed. She’s the same one that opposed the oilsands for years, the one that held a funeral for dead ducks who landed on a tailings pond, the one that spoke at anti oilsands rallies.

Nothing has changed about what Rachel Notley thinks, she's just able to outsource her opposition to the oilsands now. She doesn't have to get her hands dirty when projects are shelved and production is stopped. It won't be her fault, it can be someone else's fault, She was only following recommendations, you see.

Rachel Notley is using proxies like Berman to attack the oilsands so she doesn’t have to.

Tzeporah Berman wants all pipelines stopped. I want to stop just one and that’s Rachel Notley’s job pipeline for anti Alberta radicals.

Let's Fire Berman!

So what does shipping the oil from the oil field sin the Middle East add to the price of oil?

This person intentionally said a pipeline would raise the price of Canadian oil between 2 to 13 dollars per barrel. This no-nothing conveniently forgets to mention that this would be the selling price on the world market.

The only reason Notley hired this broad is that she is even less attractive than herself.
This is one prime example of the virtues of the “hag bag”.

Hey Alberta,
When will you be starting your coup d’état?
The pioneers that built your great province must be spinning in their graves at what you have become.
This should be a lesson to all voters thinking if voting NDP (No Democracy Please or No Democracy Present).

And Notley says Jason Kenny is out of touch with what Albertans want.

Sheila: ditto to Peter’s comment below.I have gladly signed the petition & donated for the billboards & I hope every other Rebel will do the same.
Sheila, what are Albertans going to do about this? Is it only up to us the Rebels from all over Canada to fight for Alberta’s oil sands & pipelines while the rest of Albertans who are not Rebels sit idly by & do nothing? I don’t hear much of anything happening in that department.
This latest coup by Notley is beyond the pale & it should be rejected by all Canadians, especially those provinces (which is most of them) who have been benefitting & continue to do so with the equalization payments. This is an outrage.
Thank you Sheila for this excellent report. I’m sure the MSM are tripping over themselves bringing this to our attention.

I don’t know what we’d do without you
