UPDATE: "This victory proves we can fight back and win"

Rebel Staff
 

For the first time since they were elected, Alberta Premier Rachel Notley and her NDP backed down -- they cancelled the 7.25% raise for government employees.

Here at The Rebel, we gave Albertans a chance to speak out at a special website: NDPigs.ca.

Thousands signed the petition objecting to the pay raise, and the poll made it clear:

82% of those polled condemned the raise.

The results were really amazing, because almost 75 percent of NDP voters said "no" to the raise too!

This was a small victory, but an important one.

Ordinary Albertans made the NDP blink.

Let's remember this when we face the bigger battles ahead.

 

Alberta’s NDP is using a fake "public survey" to push climate change policy.
JOIN THE FIGHT against Notley’s global warming junk science!

Even Terry has the sense to go away when it gets ridiculous.
I guess this thread is wrecked, another one down.
I thought we didn’t allow trolls on this site.

Kenneth,

Well Terry’s post below is certainly more believable over the idiocy that The NDP are threatened by The Rebel – who have zero power or influence.

Terry said:

I suspect this has less to do with the Rebel poll, and more to do with the Federal election. I suspect Mulcair had words with Nutty and strongly suggested she defer the raise to after the election in fear the backlash would reach the ears of his supporters.

Brian,

Well I didn’t realize that the newspaper that you failed to mention – has the exact same views as The Rebel and that David Aiken has worked with Ezra Levant. Like I said, Ezra most likely fed Aiken this story to reach a bigger demographic over The Rebel to try to create outrage over the CBC.
commented 2015-10-02 02:41:51 -0400
You said you wanted a link to the article, well there you go. As if the CBC hasn’t been caught lying many times, hell they even lied to the senate. Just can’t admit when your wrong ah Jimmy. What a loser.
commented 2015-10-02 02:14:46 -0400
So Jimmy, just out of curiosity, what is your theory on why the NDPorkers reversed their exorbitant pay increase?

jimmy did rebel media have camera in the munk debate?
commented 2015-10-02 01:14:49 -0400
Gary,

Ezra will probably do just that when The Rebel goes out of business – but for now, he wants to try to make a go of something that he fully controls.

Ezra and David Aiken are friends.

wehy dowednt ezra go back to old job then!instead feeding off of sun media
commented 2015-10-01 23:08:44 -0400
LOL.

An OPINION post by The Toronto Sun. I wouldn’t be surprised if Ezra fed him this.

CBC indicated that they couldn’t broadcast the debate on TELEVISION, which is what we have been talking about.

Thanks for the laugh.
commented 2015-10-01 22:35:19 -0400
That article in the Sun, by reliable Journalist, and Parliamentary Bureau Chief David Akin, is as reliable as it gets. Ezra was absolutely correct.
The twins will now probably ignore this thread altogether. But if they come on to dispute it, lets ignore them this time.
commented 2015-10-01 20:50:57 -0400
Brian,

I look forward to seeing this newspaper link that clearly states that CBC chose not to broadcast the debate on TELEVSION.

I will wait.
commented 2015-10-01 20:21:31 -0400
Brian said, “So yes you owe Ezra and everybody here and apology for all your lying.”

Yea, like that’s going to happen! Jimmy Da Liar does not have the maturity to do that.
commented 2015-10-01 19:04:58 -0400
Jimmy,
Sorry but the CBC chose not to air the debate it was in todays newspaper. So yes you owe Ezra and everybody here and apology for all your lying.

how much did ezra levant make where he as with reform party?
commented 2015-10-01 16:22:39 -0400
Peter,

This coming from guy that thinks The Rebel is an actual threat to the NDP and also blindly believes anything that Ezra states.
commented 2015-10-01 16:03:32 -0400
Brian, there is no point arguing with Jimmy. He simply is too stupid. He will keep puking his same lies over and over. He might rephrase them slightly and add a few more colorful words each time, but it is the same shit over and over again. Brian, the sad part is the idiot really believes his crap. Sad, very sad.
commented 2015-10-01 15:45:59 -0400
Brian,

Why would I apologize to Ezra, when he lied? I know Ezra is your God and you blindly believe every word that comes out of his mouth, but the FACTS are that CBC in addition to Global, CTV and CITY-TV could not broadcast the debate on TELEVISION and CBC stated exactly that. In addition per Ezra’s lying claim – there was no violation from the broadcasting act.

How did Ezra’s ass smell this morning?
commented 2015-10-01 15:13:24 -0400
Hey Jimmy how about apologizing to Ezra Levant for calling him a liar. Wow you sure made some stupid assumptions on that one. The fact is the CBC was allowed to broadcast it and chose not to out of some twisted way of thinking they were sticking it to Harper. I seem to remember you saying something along these lines of "Terry,

I guess one good thing about this article is that we can forever refer to it – whenever people say: when has Ezra lied…prove it. ""
You moron, whats it like to be a liar and wrong about everything?
commented 2015-10-01 14:42:23 -0400
Terry,

Now that actually makes sense as opposed to some poll from a dipshit blog that has no power or influence.
commented 2015-10-01 14:05:20 -0400
I suspect this has less to do with the Rebel poll, and more to do with the Federal election. I suspect Mulcair had words with Nutty and strongly suggested she defer the raise to after the election in fear the backlash would reach the ears of his supporters. We’ll know in a few weeks.
commented 2015-10-01 13:32:06 -0400
Peter,

As much as you love it here, The Rebel is insignificant. It holds no power or influence. Politicians still do corruptible things despite backlash from major and high profile media sources that include television – so you really think that the NDP took notice and were fearful of the backlash from a little opinion blog that no one to any great degree has heard of?

Even you can’t be this stupid to believe that, but I suspect that you will prove me wrong.
commented 2015-10-01 10:26:37 -0400
And liars that make statements they imply as being fact but are in reality based on assumptions because they are either unwilling to take the time to research their Ideologically based opinion or they just don’t care about the facts because they don’t fit the narrative they want to tell.
commented 2015-10-01 10:10:40 -0400
Jimmy and Terry spend so much time on the Rebel pages. Bet they are both Welfare Bums. One thing is for sure, they both are full of Bull Sht.

@ Jimmy Da Silva

I want to go through the conversation we just had.

You stated in no uncertain terms, “This has NOTHING to do with The Rebel fighting back – but of course Ezra will take the credit.”

So I asked you, “And how do you know that, Jimmy?”

This is a fairly simple and reasonable question to ask from your statement.

So you responded to me with, “You would have to be a fucking moron if you actually think they gave in to the non-existent pressure of….The Rebel. But then again, look who I am talking to – so you probably believe exactly that.”

So your response, instead of answering the question as to how you know theRebel had no influence, was to call me a “fucking moron” and insult my intelligence.

So, I ask you again, how do you know that theRebel.Media had no influence on the NDPs’ decision to not follow through on the 7.25% pay hike for themselves?

You stated it with such absolutism, such unquestioning certainty, that I actually thought you knew some factual information that the rest of us did not have. But here I find that you are just being your regular shithead self.

Thank you for your meaningless opinion, Jimmy.

Don’t bother answering the question because I already know your eyes are brown.
commented 2015-10-01 08:55:58 -0400
Jimmy and Terry the moron twins. Jumped on to calling Ezra a liar pretty quick didn’t you you two fools….. Well you were completely wrong in a way you two are the liars making statements and knowing you have none of the facts. Well you are both wrong the CBC chose not to air the debates. LOL you both continue to look like idiots. That is pretty typical for whacko lefties like you though, making statements and calling people liars on a ridiculous assumption. I hope you two are ashamed of yourselves, I doubt it though you socialists have no shame.

Whoops, forgot a line: it’s great that we won on the $20,000, but I would rather have won on stopping them from killing an industry.

Drat, I lost the thread yesterday where there was talk about how the NDP couldn’t be blamed for the AB oilpatch losing jobs – the commenter went to great lengths to try to convince that it was all the market turndown.

The Canadian Institute of Mining has a monthly industry publication called “The Bulletin”. In Septembers industry news, they note some of the cost changes coming for CO2 emitters in AB. These were released in June, but aren’t widely known. CO2 production are currently fined (that’s what it is, whatever name they want to apply to it) $15 a tonne for being over their quota of emissions. That ramps up to $30 a tonne in 2017. So, for Syncrude, that means about $200 million more in cost if they maintain their current production. It’s about 3/4 of the way down the page at:

sorry, no time for a tinyurl, I’ve got to get to work (while there is still some to get to).
