WATCH: Notley calls Alberta "embarrassing" -- and Global didn't think it was news

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Alberta's NDP Premier Rachel Notley says she wants to make progress on environmental issues so Alberta won't continue to be "the embarrassing cousin no one wants to talk about."

This is no surprise. While they were in opposition, the NDP always aimed their anti-oil sands stunts at the international media, to try to shame Alberta in the world's eyes. (Watch some examples in my report!)

Now that the NDP is in charge, the kinds of people they hire says a lot too.

Notley's chief of staff Brian Topp just brought on another out of town anti-oil sands lobbyist, this time from B.C.

I guess actual Albertans would be too "embarrassing" to work with...

READ Ezra Levant's bestselling books debunking environmentalist propaganda against the energy industry:
Groundswell: The Case for Fracking and Ethical Oil: The Case for Canada's Oil Sands

Alberta’s NDP is using a fake "public survey" to push climate change policy.

Alberta without oil, is just dirt…….and cold.

Notely is a neo communist working at destroying Alberta’s economy.

Brad Wall for Premiere of Alberta. Has a good ring to it. I heard Edny is so good, he can even free a murderer.
commented 2015-09-19 22:03:49 -0400
What’s embarrassing is the fact that the provincial government has done nothing, except promote fear in investment. No way someone in my profession should be unemployed in Alberta after NAIT told me 15 years ago I never would be. Crying about a shortage of skilled labor, now we find ourselves looking to other provinces. What we need is someone with some balls like Brad Wall or Brian Jean to stand up to lobbyists who consider slavered taxpayers second class citizens. While they consume the remaining luxuries and benefits of our expansive resources, we must save ounces of water to survive. They’re pushing me to insanity. That will be my defense with the help of Dennis Edney. He can get a terrorist absolved

“Richard Brinkman, you have for the last several days been pounding relentlessly on Ezra for not covering Alberta more, but always covering the refugee crisis. And than when Ezra does do a piece on Alberta, you pound on him for that, implying by some odd association that Ezra is communist.” I think Brinkman is just upset because the Rebel would not hire him. My opinion.

Oh I know. I just like to see their idea of logic and their reasoning for laying blame on the person who just got the fucking job and who inherited a huge mess.

I suppose it’s easier to blame the political party that you don’t agree with and who had nothing to do with creating the problems that they now have to deal with.

“You are not exactly a well-oiled machine in your first few months of any job, so I find it hard to believe that Notley ALONE caused all this damage.”
I previously posted a list of layoffs, shutdowns, reductions and closures from MULTIPLE oil producing jurisdictions, which began to occur about a year ago. This is the Rebel, dude. If something bad happens anywhere, it’s because of Notley, Wynne, or Obama.
commented 2015-09-19 12:35:49 -0400

Are you conceding though that while it may have a large part to do with Notley, it also has a large part to do with the previous government.

4 months in power isn’t long enough to really even get your feet wet. I mean you waste the first couple of months just learning where all the bathrooms are in the new office you are working in and recording your voice mail message.

I am sure you get my point. You are not exactly a well-oiled machine in your first few months of any job, so I find it hard to believe that Notley ALONE caused all this damage. It was the previous government for the most part, which may explain why they were voted out of power.

Kelvin said, “the provincial premiers seem to be destroying the country…how will Harper keep it together?”

Good question Kelvin, and you are right about at least a number of the premiers, particularly Notley and Wynne. Harper will certainly have his work cut out for him, trying to keep the economy afloat with so much sabotage being done at the provincial level. So I don’t envy him if he wins another term as PM. Especially with the anti-economy, AGW-brainwashed MSM continually pushing and bolstering the ongoing economic sabotage and undercutting any actions the federal government under Harper attempts, for example pipelines to get Alberta oil to eastern Canada and to tidewater. I only know that Canada will be toast if the Conservatives don’t win a majority this time, and the NDP and/or Liberal wingnuts take over the federal government or are in a position to force Harper to bow to their idiot will to keep his government in office. Of course, no matter who wins, we are, in any case, stuck for the time being with the most radically left SCOC in our history, so expect our former rights of religion and free speech to continue to be restricted and gutted even if Harper wins this time. Only when we have a conservative SCOC, which will take some years now, will we begin to regain our former rights under the Charter of Rights and Freedoms, and the only way that will happen is to keep the Conservatives in power until it happens. I think Harper can be persuaded to appoint more conservative judges to the SCOC if he maintains a majority government.

This quarters budgets for oil companies will run into the results of the royalties review, so in any case no one wants to commit to any projects at this time

In any case, Jimmy, I am closer to the oil and gas industry that you are. The clients of the company that I worked for up until the 15th were all directly or indirectly involved in the oil and gas industry. We created and continue to maintain detailed maps both electronic and paper of the oil & gas industry for four provinces, Alberta being the main province. The industry has slowed down to the point where it has directly affected the company I was working for which has lead to my layoff, and that is in large part because of Notley.
commented 2015-09-18 23:12:46 -0400
Jimmy said, “I love the notion that people have here that 4 months in power is long enough to actually make any kind of real impact and deserve blame –”

Jimmy, if you have several billion dollars to invest into something, wouldn’t you do your research before you invested you money, or would you just throw it at the first thing that came along? You would do research first, I assume.

So why wouldn’t the corporate execs responsible for investing billion in oil and gas do the same?

The execs are not going to wait until the corporate tax hike and the per tonne carbon tax increase that have already occurred hit their corporate bank account before they clue in that they must pull back on investments.

The execs see that the royalty tax rate is under review and will undoubtedly be increased. They look at the unfriendly anti-oilsands crew that Notley has assembled and are already making decisions to not invest. They look ahead at the economic and political climate to assess whether they should invest not.

It is Notley’s fault that the oil and gas companies are pulling back from future investments in Alberta’s oil and gas sector.

Why can you not see this?

8 or 9 years but not 40. It was the infiltration of UN backed destroyers like Redford that got the ball rolling and now we got another Marxist destroyer that needs to be dealt with in the same way
commented 2015-09-18 22:52:21 -0400

That Rachel Notley is some premier. Conservatives worked at robbing the province for 40 years and she gets the credit for the accomplishment in a matter of months. Impressive.

Conservatives can smell a shakedown way quicker than the sheeplike liberals
commented 2015-09-18 22:18:09 -0400
I love the notion that people have here that 4 months in power is long enough to actually make any kind of real impact and deserve blame – while ignoring the policies of a government in power for 4 decades, which by the way, people wanted gone because they were fucking things up in Alberta.

It seems conservatives here are taking a page out of the American Republican’s party playbook where they blame Obama for everything bad that ever happened to America that occurred long before he got into office.

Something happened today that should have been front page headline news. The greatest ambassador to his sport. The greatest ambassador to even sports itself. A man that cannot be anymore Canadian. A true legend in Canada. The Great one. Wayne Gretzky. This man who never interfered in politics before, finds it is important to come out and support PMSH. If we had some objective reporting, this should spell CHECK MATE Justin and CHECK MATE Mulcair

I also believe that Kenneth Lawrence is frighteningly accurate. But I also believe that if Canadians truly understood this indoctrination. It would cease to exist.
In fairness to them most Canadians do not have the time to understand these things. Their work consumes 10 hours if you count going to and coming from. Their sleep, 8. That leaves 6 hours a day to spend the balance of his life in . They are falsely informed by what they are assuming is responsible and objective journalism. This is pure propaganda. Even the most left wing commentator here at The Rebel has admitted to the CBC leaning left.{ I must disclose, he is retarded}. The leaning of the left of the media must come to an end.

Kenneth, the provincial premiers seem to be destroying the country province by province even under a conservative government. How will Harper keep it together?
commented 2015-09-18 19:31:28 -0400
Kenneth, you are frighteningly accurate. I. too, see this pattern as I am sure other conservative minded people do too. It has been an indoctrination that began some time ago and has a life of its own now. All we can hope to do is to slow down its progress by getting a Conservative party in office, even if PM Harper is not the most Conservative PM. Unfortunately, I cannot see this “bolder rolling downhill” called cultural Marxism stopping without a revolution. (not that I am recommending such)
commented 2015-09-18 19:07:43 -0400
Peter, the new generation of MSM ‘journalists’ (I laugh) are Marxists or cultural Marxists (i.e. ‘progressives), having been trained by either their Marxist parents, or the Marxists in our colleges and universities, or both. They have also been brainwashed in AGW, which they have bought into as part and parcel of cultural Marxism. They are determined to transform Canada into an atheist, socialist, non-industrial welfare state financed on massive perpetual deficit spending until it collapses. Either we prevail in educating Canadians in the fallacy of their loser secular religion of AGW-socialism, or Canada goes under within a generation. Obama has begun that process in the U.S. and the once-powerful middle class there is now disappearing. That will also happen in Canada if either the Liberals or NDP take power again, because they have both been transformed into AGW-socialist lunatic fringe parties without a shred of understanding of economic reality. JT is too stupid to try to conceal his religion from the pubic, while Mulcair is savvy enough to do that, but he will be just as destructive, and possibly even more so, with his animosity to oil production and export. We are on the brink of the destruction of Canada as a viable civilized nation if the Conservative Party of Canada doesn’t win the upcoming election.
commented 2015-09-18 18:44:08 -0400
Kenneth said, “Therefore, the definition of treason in the Criminal Code of Canada should be expanded to included deliberate economic sabotage”

I wish! That would then include Wynne and her destructive policies.

Kelvin said, “…the two can’t coexist in one country”

Very true, and the ironic part is even the Marxist society cannot exist for long without the capitalists because it is capitalism that funds the Marxism.
commented 2015-09-18 18:36:47 -0400
It’s getting harder and harder to recognize this country from what it was even from 5 years ago. The left/right divide is getting wider thanks in part of our lamestream media and the leftist agenda. We are in fact becoming two very different types of peoples, one capitalist and the other Marxist, the two can’t coexist in one country. One or the other will always feel imprisoned by the other.
commented 2015-09-18 18:29:20 -0400
Rachel Notley’s government has now replaced Kathleen Wynne’s government as the biggest embarrassment to Canada. And that took some doing. But never underestimate the NDP’s capacity for stupidity and self-destruction. On display now in what was formerly the go-to province if you wanted good paying employment. That is now Saskatchewan.
commented 2015-09-18 18:18:47 -0400
No nation can exist and thrive in freedom without a robust economy. Therefore, the definition of treason in the Criminal Code of Canada should be expanded to included deliberate economic sabotage; i.e. if it can be proved that an elected politician enacted legislation or took measures designed to damage or shut down a major sector of Canada’s economy without justification, that should be considered treason against the nation and people of Canada and should be prosecuted as such. That would stop any politician contemplating any such action in their tracks.
commented 2015-09-18 17:56:02 -0400
Alex, that was hilarious! Thanks for the good belly laugh! I’ll get right on that calculation. ;o)
