Rachel Notley BUNGLES opportunity to defend Alberta beef farmers

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator

Alberta beef farmers are under attack. Earls Restaurants has decided to source their beef from Kansas because they think Canadian ranchers aren't humane enough, Earls wants Canadian farmers to submit to an expensive monitoring and licensing process by an American company to prove what we already know and what the Canadian Food Inspection Agency already regulates very strictly: Canadian farmers are the best farmers on the planet.

Alberta politicians have come out in defence of Canadian beef producers. Conservative MP Jason Kenney, Wildrose leader Ric McIver, Wildrose Party Agriculture critic Rick Strankman and Wildrose Party finance critic Derek Fildebrandt have all been vocal about their support for Alberta cattle ranchers.

What about Rachel Notley? Now is her time to shake off that awful perception Alberta farmers have of her. Surely she would jump on this opportunity to repair that fractured relationship. But she didn’t.

Notley thinks Alberta farmers need more of a labelling bureaucracy. As reported in the Calgary Sun, Notley urged a round table on organics instead of defending Alberta farmers from insinuations of inhumanity.

Rachel said in a teleconference from Washington that “There’s no place in the world where you can get more tasty beef than in Alberta,“ adding that she hopes a national round table on certification of organics swiftly develops a certification process “that confirms what we all know to be true — that Alberta produces great beef, and that it’s the best meal you can order in any restaurant.”

Notley couldn't bring herself to say that Alberta farmers are indeed humane. She couldn't bring herself to defend Alberta farmers.There was never an argument that Alberta beef was less than “tasty”. Earls isn't looking for a certified tasty designation, they want a certified humane designation.

But really are we surprised? After the Bill 6 fiasco, we know Notley thinks farmers are a bunch of dangerous, unsafe yokels who are mean to their employees. Why wouldn't she think that farmers are awful to their animals?

@ Donald

I have heard people also complain that they do not cover enough.

Yes , there are so many stories and themes to follow in the news. But does anyone else think TheRebel has too many things on the go and they are just jumping from one thing to another and never completing or achieving anything.
case in point is this Earl’s issue. What has become of the boycott? Sign a petition and that’s it?
I went to Earls website and wrote a complaint . I was totally respectful stating my dissatisfaction with their policy and advising I will no longer support their establishment. Never got an acknowledgment but maybe somebody else will take the time to complain.
Hey Ezra , how about some follow up and some ideas to take earls down….

Feeding Albertans halal beef.

Ugly – damned ugly.

The money goes to support terror.

Supposed to be raised under “certified humane” conditions.

They do not tell you they torture the animal to kill it.

They torture it.

Ever seen it done?

Look it up on YouTube.

NEVER darken Earls doors – tell all your friends and family.

I don’t eat kosher either, does that make me antisemitic?
commented 2016-05-03 13:11:24 -0400
I too noticed that Superstore is selling halal, and I sent them a nasty email. I never read their response, I’m not interested in their lies and deceptions!

Yvette said, “I avoid the halal cooler at Superstore faster than I can shake a stick at.”

I did not realize there was one at the Superstore. I will have to look out for that and make sure I do not buy anything from it.
commented 2016-05-03 12:29:27 -0400
Peter N. You’re absolutely right. This is ridiculous, so The Rebel better hire someone fast before everything is lost. I have also noticed that the comments have been way down for a couple of weeks now.
As or Earls, never did. Like the food there & goodbye from me too. I have had enough of Muslims dictating to us after they’ve been made welcome here. I avoid the halal cooler at Superstore faster than I can shake a stick at.

Rachel is a useless Premier, and has done more to destroy AB than anyone else in the province’s history. She’s a shameless liar and deceiver. She cares nothing for those who made this province what it is. Her NDP is a stain on our province, that I hope we will be able to remove in the next election. If she had any real loyalty to the province, she would call an election immediately. She is making fundamental changes, that she never ran on. Step down Rachel, and do the right thing for Albertan’s.

I’ll never eat at Earl’s again.

Well, these women still had more balls than Justin.

All women who lead are FAILURES.

You cite Golda Meir and Margret Thatcher.

Golda Meir nearly caused Israel to be overrun in the Yom Kippur War. Why? For some reason she gave the order for the armed forces to stand down for the holiday. Thankfully, she was run from office following an investigation into her reasoning behind presenting an invitation for an attack.

Margret Thatcher. Despite some early success, she was ousted by her own caucus because she couldn’t keep them in line. She burned all her bridges and ruined every one of the alliances that kept her in the leadership. It was time for her to go and go she did. Useless at the end.

Its’ not worth commenting here anymore when all the comments are deleted. No, not deleted intentionally I doubt, but because the font issue fix caused another issue.

You know, normally I am not critical of TheRebel, but you web guys better get your act together or hire someone that knows what they are doing.

If one takes a look at what is going on in the world one will notice that the countries and provinces led by women are in trouble. Look at Germany, Ontario, Alberta for instance.
I have nothing against women being leaders but they need to BE leaders. The last female leaders that had the stuff to be leaders were Golda Meir and Margaret Thatcher.
The queen is another leader but she does not have any real power . . . she is simply a figure head.

Halal meat served to Albertans – ugly – and no one wants to tell the tale other than this media outlet.

I will never darken their doors

Since when did Ric McIver become leader of the WR?

Anyway, if one needed more proof that Notley is completely detached from reality, just look at this issue. The opposition to Bill 6 has done more than embarrass Notley: it was charged her wrath and her insanity. Judging by the recent budget cuts to support for agriculture, can there be any doubt that Notley has decided to declare war on farmers in Alberta? Worse, she will not challenge Earl’s or anyone else for that matter that attacks Alberta’s industries.

Notley’s rising dementia is the result that she is very likely medicated. Judging by her constant giggling during the budget speech, it’s becoming clearer that Notley is high on anti-depressants. It’s appears that her relentless chain-smoking isn’t enough to calm her nerves. She’s not taken to using powerful drugs to maintain her stability.

I have no doubt before the next election, Notley will be overcome by a nervous breakdown, forcing her to resign.

Rather than boycott the place , maybe we should all go to Earl’s , sit down and order a plate of fries and a glass of water. A restaurant filled with customers ordering fries won’t stay in business very long.
Does Earl’s take reservations ? " Party of Forty for Levant , Party of Thirty for Mr. Rebel .
As far as I’m concerned , Earl’s can go to Halal , and shove their beef policy where the Alberta sun don’t shine.

Yvette Mozol said, “Every time she [Notley] opens her mouth something foul oozes out.”

Well, when deep down inside all that exists is foul ooze, then that is all that will come out.

I contacted Eitan and it seems that if you cancel your subscription after you have paid for the full month Rebel media takes your money and drops your content. Hmm. Rebel Media sure does dish out the crap about government taking our money and doing nothing for us but it seems that Rebel media just takes your money. Is this how you run you business Ezra. Take peoples money and run? I told Eitan that the reason I cancels was because I wasn’t sure if I would have the $8. for the NEXT withdrawl. I paid on Mar,28 and canceled on April,16 so I could make sure that the money was on my creditcard. You know what I call this — A BIG FUCKING SCAM_ and your damn right I’m pissed off.

All the talking in the world will not change these Fascists agenda!! TRY leaving any advice or REAL message on their page – I challenge you!!! I have been banned from it as have many others i know – and we have made some MOST polite comments!! (we are not stupid people!) Try TruDopes several FB pages – if you aren’t knob-gobbling & expressing undying love for these bastards – your voice ain’t allowed!!!

It’s time that Notley wake up, get off her high horse & start doing the right thing for AB. Every time she opens her mouth something foul oozes out. When is she going to do something that Albertans can be proud of??
Why is Earls all of a sudden spending way more money to buy American beef after serving Canadian beef from day one?? Something smells here.

Have you ever been through a Canada Packers or Iowa Beef Producers plant? Obviously not – if you think they hang their animals by the back legs then slit the animals throat. A bolt (literally) is fired into their brain and then they are hung, then their throat is cut to bleed the animal out – the animal is dead before it is hung! Hunters do a similar procedure -although hanging is often not practical or able to do out in the bush.

Robert Raymond: No, you were totally correct. When I checked on line as to the status of mad cow disease in Alberta, that picture of Notley came up. I think if you look closely that’s Heather Boyd suckling at the teat.
commented 2016-05-02 23:26:29 -0400
Notley says: "Alberta produces great beef, and that it’s the best meal you can order in any restaurant.” Yeah, Danish Albertans like it so much they feed it to their children raw.

Stop barbaric practices now!
commented 2016-05-02 23:22:16 -0400
I think the real problem is not with the Farmers, rather it is with the Slaughter Houses, who are killing the Cattle using the Halal acceptable manner of hanging the beast up by it’s hind legs and then slitting the artery in the neck. It takes around 10 minutes for the animal to die, using this method.

Trudeu has probably ordered this, to please his dirty stinking Muslim friends.
commented 2016-05-02 23:20:41 -0400
People – this is more than an "organic / humane issue!! The top guy at Earl’s is a Muslim and he is going after Halal designation – HOW DO I KNOW THIS?? – well if you were to do some research – the American Lieberal media has gleefully reported on this. And even though top shit at Earls wouldn’t dare tell Canadian media his ulterior motives in making his decision – it is that he is a Muslim! And he knows there isn’t a Alberta farmer who has much use for the Muslim way of life – so he is kicking every Alberta farmer in the nuts! So – every Albertan who has any respect for hard working & very productive farmers needs to give Earls a big kick in their nuts! We can do it – they can leave Alberta anytime soon, broke & busted! Personally I prefer the Sawmill, Montana’s (best beef ribs ever!!), Mr. Mikes or The Keg. These restaurants will feed you well! If this Halal way of butchering is so humane – go to YouTube and watch for yourself. I have delivered cattle to many slaughter houses in Canada and Mid & NW USA and have had the opportunity to go through many of these plants – and although the kill of animals is not really my cup of tea – there is absolutely no comparison in our Canadian methods – which are very HUMANE compared to the torturous Halal method. These Muslims do the kill the same way they cut off the heads of people – and damn it is absolutely GROSS! & INHUMANE!
You may also want to check out who the head butchers are in that Kansas source!! Disgusting!!
SO Earls – GFYS! – and do it quickly! we are sick of Muslims trying to overtake our country and you have picked on the wrong province to BULLY around – leave quietly & quickly! Fit in or Fuck OFF!

Notley, an old cow that is certifiable, of course Earl’s love her. Her father was totally ndp, but I would wager that even he is rolling in his grave, sad at the extent that his daughter is devastating this province on the advise of idiot progressives that couldn’t find a 6 figure job in their home province. So sad. BTW Edmonton, you were the catalyst here, you deserved 4th pick
commented 2016-05-02 21:57:12 -0400
I mean Ric McIver
As for the beef debacle, maybe Notley should seek the assistance of her Deputy Premier, the plus size blow up doll Sarah Hoffman. She could surely “beef” up talks.
