WATCH: Mulcair’s idling bus symbolizes what's wrong with Notley's NDP, say Alberta activists

Albertans are becoming increasingly concerned about their future. 

Albertans are becoming increasingly concerned about their future. 

With more looming job losses in the midst of a crisis that has left tens of thousands of people unemployed, things seem hopeless for many.

Low oil prices are the major culprit, but NDP government policies -- such as increasing corporate taxes and plans for a royalty review -- are causing a snowball effect and driving drilling out of the province. 

On top of this, the premier continues to push ideology rather than focusing the need to put Albertans back to work.

Last week, Rachel Notley referred to Albertans as "the embarrassing cousin that nobody wants to talk about” regarding environmental standards – not only once, but twice.

But she failed to mention that Alberta has the strictest energy regulations in the world, once again showing her ignorance of oil and gas industry standards.

Over the weekend, the premier also told critics opposed to the forthcoming royalty review to “settle down”

Apparently, the premier and her ministers have forgotten that the 2008 review drove businesses to British Columbia, Saskatchewan -- anywhere but Alberta. Corporations will go where they can get the best bottom line. The NDP government fails to take this into account, displaying just how out of touch they are with this province and what drives the economy.      

Citizens like Trevor Marr and George Clark are starting to speak out for the oil and gas industry and against the NDP government, because nobody else will:

They’re part of a growing movement across the province. Like-minded people are attending Stand Up For Alberta rallies and supporting Canada Action, a non-profit, non-partisan energy advocacy group founded by Cody Battershill to increase energy awareness. 

I caught up with Trevor and George at the second leader’s debate. When asked why they were there, George mentioned the tax hikes the federal NDP plan on implementing, while Trevor expressed alarm over job losses and the negative attention directed at Alberta’s ethical oil industry.

Trevor and George expressed what many Albertans are thinking -- and they’re just two of the growing number of citizens becoming more frustrated with the NDP.

While chatting about Alberta's future, George pointed out to me that Thomas Mulcair's tour bus had been idling in the parking lot outside the debate for upwards of five hours! Here’s his video:

It seems NDP hypocrisy runs deep, especially considering that the energy industry promotes a strict “no idling” policy.

Does Rachel Notley hold Thomas Mulcair to the same standards as the energy industry she’s always so critical of?

Apparently not -- and that’s something Albertans will have to keep in mind the next time the premier decides to throw the province under the bus.

Well, Paul Taalman, at least that extra C02 will help our environment. It IS plant food, and our atmosphere needs much more of that. However, Mulcair’s hot air won’t help.

Tsk-tsk… Be respectful of your betters. They can’t be concerned with details we little people have to pay attention to…

Perhaps they are at a Bus Stop and are waiting for the Go sign.

Not only does the bus idling for 5 hours create Co2 but what a waste of fuel and money! The NDP will spend Canada into a Have-not-country!

The NDP know how to run a province . . . into the Ground !
The NDP could do the same for ALL of Canada . . . if we are dumb enough to elect them . . .

It’s do as I say not as I do!

Alberta’s economy was over heated for the wage flow, time to cool it down and see some true value put back into the consumer index. The Dip period (4yrs or less) will purge the Province of inflation spiral and eastern economic refugees. At one point Alberta was the cheapest/freest place to live in Canada. Get things back to normal before the booms sent the economy into pay check flat-lining inflation.

mulcair is a national socialist (aka nazi). while there won’t be internment camps, this communist pig will trainwreck Canada’s economy given the chance.

Hypocrisy is a key part of the NDP/nazi ideology. It weakens people when they see dictators do what they want.

You don’t see many uprisings in China or Cuba, but you do see Chinese, out of protest, setting themselves on fire.

nazi/socialist/marxist/liberal/communist/fascist – all the same ideologies that the world inherited as a multi-prong method by royalty to maintain control after they were dethroned.

What does the narrator mean “needlessly idling”? Can’t let Tom’s beer get warm, eh? Anyway, it can idle all day every day for the next 200 years and it won’t affect the climate one millionth of a degree, just as oilsands mining won’t. The sun and volcanoes drive climate change on Earth, and anything man does is utterly irrelevant. Don’t believe the AGW lie. Search “Call it the mystery of the missing thermometers” to learn how the AGW scam works.

Somebody should have stuffed a large glue soaked rag up the exhaust pipe.

Robert Wheeler, you’re exactly right. The NDP can either stay faithful to their present ecological ideology or represent most Albertans. Clearly they’re going to accomplish as much of their agenda as they can before they’re turfed in the next election.

They only won power because Albertans were fed up with the abuses of the entrenched Alberta Conservative Party, and couldn’t bring themselves to support Wildrose while the party was in disarray.

Beware the protest vote!

I like the way he has the Bus windows covered over. Perhaps he thinks a Human will take a Pop Shot at him.

Notley doesn’t care what Albertans say. The left finally have their hands on Alberta, this will be their one chance to destroy the oil power of Canada and nothing will be allowed to stand in the way of that ideological mission. The destruction of businesses and peoples lives is just a minor and acceptable pothole on the road to their ultimate reward, the death of the oil culture.

Vote NDP or Liberal in the fed election and this will also be the fate for all Canada.

How, befitting. Mulcair comes to my province to emit CO2 wastefully. Idle no more Mulcair.
