Report from Rebel Road Trip with "Albertans Against the NDP"

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

I went on a Rebel Road Trip with the Albertans Against the NDP

I joined this truly grassroots movement on their truck convoy from Blackfalds to Strathmore near Red Deer Alberta where I talked to the people behind it all.

Lorne Murfitt, Julie Franz and Jim Satink are everyday Albertans on a mission. They’re inspiring people across the province to join them at their rallies to demand that the NDP government hear their concerns and act, to save jobs, to save money and to save our futures.

In Strathmore I caught up to my good friend and brand new Rebel contributor, Holly Nicholas, and we waded into the eager crowd to hear their stories. What we found were people from all different backgrounds, professionals and blue collar alike, all saying the same thing: they aren’t seeing a provincial government that will stop the bleeding of jobs and investment.

And Lorne, Julie and Jim say more rallies are planned across the province. With over 20,000 followers on their Facebook page, the Albertans Against The NDP aren’t stopping what they’re doing anytime soon.

Terry go back under your bridge.

Sheila, welcome to the Rebel. I’ve been watching this channel from nearly day 1. You are doing a great job and I love your posts. Keep up the good work!

My sympathy goes out to all the people of Alberta, that did not vote NDP and to all those that did. To the latter I would suggest; Youtube ‘The Mulcair Deception’.

Dale, did you know that Plato once declared: “Ezra Levant is just the bestest reporter EVER!!”

Terry Rudden . . . go back to the CBC . . . Canada’s Pravda !
You and Jimmy are laughable . . . and the poster children for all that is wrong with Critical Thinking in Canada today.

Thank you Lorne Murfitt, Julie Franz and Jim Satink and all the rest of the concerned Canadian patriots who care enough about their country and communities to stand up, and say what they think.
To all you liberal/progressive/socialists – you’d better start listening to Canadians – or push-back will be a bitch, remember, we’re the ones with all the guns…

Well Ron, if there is a petition out the to this end, I’ll be there to sign it.
commented 2015-09-23 09:54:15 -0400
Peter Netterville, unless someone else has experience in these matters, I would think that a petition delivered to the Lt. Governor with a hundred thousand names or more on it along with a lot of media coverage might work!

Albertans are simply getting, in a smaller scale, what Canada will get if they elect a dipper government – the entitled who live in their nice homes have no idea how bad it will get if the citizen of france is elected. Trudope will make it as bad or worse. One of them – sooner or later will indeed get their chance to ruin Canada. When it happens the only people to blame will be the person looking back at you in the mirror when you are brushing your teeth.
commented 2015-09-23 09:42:39 -0400
Terry, to claim that theRebel does not have journalism simply because you disagree with it is asinine and a lie.

By your own standard, the main stream media is all propaganda.
commented 2015-09-23 09:40:24 -0400
Ron Robertson, that is a good question. Do you know how one can initiate such action. How do the people of Alberta go about petitioning the Lt. Governor?
commented 2015-09-23 09:40:03 -0400
Bill: I agree. The Rebel is essentially a propaganda vehicle for the Federal Conservatives and what I assume is the remainder of the Alberta Wild Rose movement, or its successor, and for specific corporate interests on whose behalf Ezra has lobbied professionally in the past – oil and tobacco. You know that, and I know that. However, be honest: several of our fellow Rebel Readers actually seem to think they’re getting unbiased, honest reportage here. Thus the constant need to remind them.
commented 2015-09-23 09:38:50 -0400
Very good Sheila Gunn Reid you and the Rebel are bring Canadians the real news. Why the main stream media party won’t it’s simple, it doesn’t support their agenda. Thank you very much and keep fighting the fight.

George:
Good Rebel Rousing speech.
My post was not directed against the oil industry or development. I am pointing out that there’s a difference between journalism and propaganda. Many Rebel readers don’t understand that distinction; pretend not to understand that distinction; or don’t care. No problem.
For oil industry consultants and lobbyists like Levant, Murfitt, and possibly yourself, to lobby on behalf of the industry is fair ball, completely. What I DO find objectionable, personally, is to do so under the guise of being “a truly grass roots movement”. When a “truly grass roots movement” is headed by an oil company consultant, I think that readers should be made aware of it. It won’t matter to ideologues; it may to others.

Kenneth said, “We can only hope that Canadians become aware of the Alberta NDP tragedy in time to stop the NDP federally.” and “The definition of treason must be broadened to include deliberate sabotage of the economy on which we depend for our livelihood in Canada.”

I couldn’t agree more.
commented 2015-09-23 09:23:35 -0400
Brian Kelly said, “In a democracy there should and must be a clause in the election act to be able to remove a government at anytime when they put their self interest ahead of the populace.”

I completely agree, but what government is going to introduce that type of bill, certainly not this NDP government.
commented 2015-09-23 09:23:25 -0400
With so many Albertans outraged at the poor performance of the NDP since the election and the damage they seem to be doing to Alberta’s economy and employment, why doesn’t the Lt. Governor exercise her authority and dissolve the Legislature and Albertans can then choose another government before irreparable damage is done to the people of this province. The Lt. Governor has the authority to dissolve the Legislature and force an election if the Lt. Governor sees fit. (Section 38.1(1) of the Elections Act RSA 2000)
commented 2015-09-23 09:21:14 -0400
As I’ve said before, the time to protest NDP hostility towards Alberta’s primary industry was before the election – the NDP policy has never changed, what utopian dreamscape went through your heads thinking an Alberta NDP would represent Alberta’s interests rather than the globalist interests the party has committed to ?
Let’s call it voter remorse and have done with the juvenile tantrums. Alberta had the opportunity to implement recall legislation but chose not to – sleep in the bed you made and learn the hard lesson of incompetent Dipper economics that BC, Ontario and Sask suffered. Democracy in Alberta has been served. To paraphrase HL Menken ; democracy is about giving people what they want, and making sure they get it good and hard.

Ha – Terry – you made me spit coffee on the keyboard this AM with your “unbiased/credible news source” sophistry – by your own standards you should be tuning out the entire GTA-based MSM who pretend to be non partisan – oh, and the Rebel NEVER clamed to be balanced nor mainstream (“Rebel media” get it?) – from all the promos I have seen they simply claim to be NOT left biased and claim a perspective not covered by MSM – that they are. So it’s WYSIWYG – you’ll just hurt your stomach scolding them or expecting any more. Next time I review your commentary I’ll make sure I don’t have a mouth full of coffee.

Terry said, "a) The Rebel promotes specific political parties and industries. Nothing wrong with that, except that you can’t pretend to be a credible news source when your “coverage” is a string of infomercials. "

Then obviously neither are the CBC, CTV, Global, Toronto Star, Ottawa Citizen, and other like it credible new sources because they too promote specific political parties and industries.

The problem with you, Terry is that you are a big bloody hypocrite. The main stream media does exactly what you accuse theRebel of doing, yet you are too blind too see that. That is the very definition of a hypocrite.

Kevn Grabowski:
" As for being a shill for big oil, what the hell is wrong with that, nothing, the rebel is not ashamed of our oil industry, why are you."
Ashamed? Not at all. I was making two points.
a) The Rebel promotes specific political parties and industries. Nothing wrong with that, except that you can’t pretend to be a credible news source when your “coverage” is a string of infomercials.
b) Obviously propaganda works better is you think the message is coming from “just plain folks”, or, as Sheila put it so charmingly, “truly grass roots.” It sounds a lot better than “paid oil industry consultant”.
But it’s an interesting confirmation that the oil industry is actively lobbying against an elected government, and doing it the guise of a “grass roots” movement.

Re Kenneth Lawrence “The definition of treason must be broadened to include deliberate sabotage of the economy”
I agree100%. But do we have enough prison space for all NDPer’s?
“New Depression Party” Very well said
commented 2015-09-23 04:50:22 -0400
Re Doug Brinkman " I’m certain the Syrian refugees we are opening our doors to will be outstanding citizens".
I pray you are right. And what if you are wrong?What if a Syrian refugee commits a terrorist act and kills 10 toddlers? Will you crawl into a hole and hide? Does 3/4 of them being male not worry you? When I think of refugees, women and children come to mind first.
The only thing you should expect from Sheila Gunn Reid is more good reporting. Don’t be so critical so early.
commented 2015-09-23 02:07:57 -0400
The brain-dead traitor MSM work hand in glove with others who sabotage the Canadian economy. The definition of treason must be broadened to include deliberate sabotage of the economy on which we depend for our livelihood in Canada.
commented 2015-09-23 01:57:35 -0400
We can only hope that Canadians become aware of the Alberta NDP tragedy in time to stop the NDP federally. If that doesn’t happen and the New Depression Party wins federally, well, the whole country is toast, just like Alberta.
commented 2015-09-23 01:53:43 -0400
Alberta is now the fulfillment of the worst predictions of conservatives who warned Canadians not to put the NDP foxes in charge of the henhouse. The rapid decline of Alberta is simply guaranteed with the New Depression Party in power.
commented 2015-09-23 00:44:52 -0400
Just like I said, blowing your own horn
commented 2015-09-23 00:23:08 -0400
All I saw in your report was you tooting your own horn Brinkman, you and this dipshit government. Price of chickens go down you want to raise the price of chicken feed. Your a carpetbagger of the worst kind, you and the ndp
