The NDP are lying to you. Last week, NDP Health Minister and Deputy Premier Sarah Hoffman proudly sat on the couch of a normal Alberta family to champion the carbon tax rebate that they are getting.
The NDP used a photo of them all in a press release, and Hoffman tweeted the picture out as proof that normal people like the carbon tax.
This family, the Collins, were sold to us as just a regular Alberta mom, dad and a cute little baby. And they were so grateful to the NDP for this bribe with their own money.
And the media? Well they ate it up until the public, smelling a rat, committed some real journalism.
Watch my video to see the real story of the Collins family, the story the public uncovered on their own.
It was bad when Murray Edwards from CNRL stood like a hostage with Stockholm syndrome behind Rachel Notley and Shannon Phillips to push the Climate Leadership Plan. But at least we all knew who Murray Edwards was and we knew there was something in it for him to be standing there; grants, incentives, kickbacks. Whatever. It was gross. But it was upfront.
But no one was upfront about Sean Collins.
What does it say about a government program if they can’t find a single unconnected normal person who will tell you that they like it?
