What did they know and when did they know it? Notley NDP caught lying about “Enron” clause

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

Notley’s NDP has been caught lying about the power purchase agreements. They’re lying about what they knew and when they knew it.

The power purchase agreements (PPAs) are contracts between the government and Alberta’s energy retailers who buy power from the balancing pool and then sell it to the public.

PPAs have a clause that says if the government, through legislation or by some other policy renders the contracts “unprofitable or more unprofitable”, companies are able to cancel their contracts. The NDP call this a secret Enron clause to scare us, but the truth is the clause is standard - it was neither secret nor Enron related.

The NDP made the contracts with Alberta’s energy retailers “unprofitable or more unprofitable” when they introduced the Carbon Tax and their Climate Leadership Plan. And now government ineptocrats want to sue themselves to change the contracts with power companies retroactively.

In the end, all these cancelled contracts could cost Alberta taxpayers over $2 billion.

Deputy Premier Sarah Hoffman has been saying all along that the NDP only just found out about the Enron profitability clause in March of 2016. The government even makes that claim in their lawsuit.

“The existence of the August 2000 Letter -that's the letter detailing the Enron clause- was not communicated to the ministers, by officials of the Government of Alberta or otherwise, until senior government officials first learned of its existence in a mid-March 2016 meeting with the Chief Executive Officer of the Balancing pool”

But is that true? Did the NDP really only just learn about the “Enron” clause mid March? Absolutely not.

Watch my video to see the damning proof the NDP misled the public.

This is how the NDP operate. They screw up and will then lie to cover it up. It looks like they’re lying in sworn court documents.

They’re lying to the public about what they knew and when they knew it. They’re liars. And now they’re caught.

I hope the public is paying attention because we can be sure power company lawyers are.

Isn’t the gov’t supposed to know what’s in these contracts already? That doesn’t make little Ms Hoff & Poff look so good. Looks like the right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing. Nutley’s ministers are in positions that are way over their head. They think they’re so smart & they’ll force their carbon emission plans on Albertans at any cost no matter what & now this has backfired on them & they’re trying to save their hides. I hope you’re right Sheila that the power companies’ lawyers are paying attention, big time.

This Dip regime is dirty – they’re dirty because they are running an ideological agenda that is at odds with the best interests of the province – the monied interests they represent are external to the province – they are specifically destroying the economic infrastructure of the province to carry through the agenda of those external patrons outside the province.

We see the malfeasance – you are digging at that – but if you want the smoking gun – follow the money washed into the Dips and the pressure groups they have direct connections with – I guarantee they will lead to Saudi and Soros money – THAT is criminal collusion

@mongrel….I’m beginning to wonder if she even exists. I’m off to the legislature and football game, will check in later.

Snobelen in today’s Toronto Sun wrote an article wondering where political honour has gone; pointing out that ministers would resign or temporarily step aside if there was a question of ethics or competence.

An honourable minister of energy would have resigned as a result of this fiasco; she is the one ultimately accountable. That is, if such an energy minister were visible.

Only the ndp would sue themselves, who will end up paying yup the taxpayers will get screwed, All so notley can hand over tax dollars to the farce known as wind power. Billions upon billions of dollars literally thrown to the wind, for what unreliable electricity production and a few dozen tax payer funded jobs.

Peter N…. If she tries to garner that extra year just to fuck us up worse there won’t be enough body guards in the province to look after her, and they may even turn on her. I can’t wait for the election as you state, it will be similar to the federal liberal demise when all they were left with was the rat pack. Hope Saskatchewan is treating you well.

I cannot wait to see how hard Albertans kick Notley in the ass come May 2019. If they retain even one seat, I will be surprised.

Just take a look at what happened to the Liberals after Pierre “Idiot” Trudeau. They never gained any more that a few seats neither provincial nor federal.

Albertans have a long memory for being mistreated.

Unfortunately, Albertans are too busy working to protest with much more than a vote every four years.

Oh, and be prepared for the possibility that Notley could delay the election for a fifth year. I would not put it past her to do that.

@lawrence O’Byrne….Believe me Lawrence, there are definitely screaming people and I think today will be a good indicator as to what extent the populace is willing to take this. I anticipate a large representation at the rallies and pray it is the beginning of a giant snowball rolling down a hill.

Danielle Smith and her brood crossing the floor seems to have been the crack that allowed the orange slime to ooze in. With the influx of workers from other provinces and other parts of the world, many of whom are more leftist than what you would consider traditional Albertans, and the door opened a sliver and look what happened.

To me, as we all went along living our busy lives, the progressive creep enveloped us and has become entrenched. This is especially evident over the last 20 years. Pc, sjw, special interests, hrcs, kangaroo courts and so on, coupled with a couple of weak liberal governments in Ottawa and voila. Thank God we had the Harper years or we would be done already.The ill informed have now put a flake of monumental proportion in power in Ottawa. I really would like to know how his supporters expect our once proud nation to handle multi billion dollar deficits add infinium.

As for Alberta, we need not look further than Shiela Gunn Reid’s book “The Destroyers”. If you don’t have time to read the book just now, all one has to do is look at the title. Pretty much explains the mess we are in. My big hope is that today is the start of the CORRECTION.

Hoping to see many of you today at the legislature. God speed.

Down with the NDP

They’re all mental hospital level certifiable loons. They have a really confounding obsession with gender dysphoria, which does not affect 99.97% of the population. They’re completely at odds with reality. Their long term plans are to keep shoving poverty down people’s throats while they move up to limo level communism for themselves, all the while making shrines for transvestites and forcing school children to worship transexuals. If the people of Alberta don’t take them down they’re doomed and so are the next 10 generations of their offspring. They won’t be able to unelect them. Soros money buys every vote counter volunteer and employee and the mainstream media are as crooked, dirty and corrupt as any mafia hitman.

Every time I see this Deputy Premier she reminds me of the movie Animal House where Dean Wormer says to Flounder " Fat and Stupid is no way to go through life !"

My tummy hurts. A double belly laugh. Thanks Lloyd and Drew. ha ha ha ha

I’m glad McIntyre showed the undisputed facts that these scum are liars and are going to cost us a LOT of money. They can’t possibly plead total ignorance, although they are totally ignorant, because as I have stated, and I’m sure that many of you saw the same video I did, where Mr. Jim Prentice tried to make it clear to the Stasi Princess what the consequences would be if they followed through on such insanity.

See many of you at the legislature tomorrow.

Down with the Dippers

Charge her!!!!
Knowingly filing false documents may be deemed Public Mischief. Knowingly spending taxpayer money on a lost cause, is a Breach of Trust. Lying to the Public is also a Breach of Trust.

Lloyd Nolan awesome limerick.
Let me make up a secret clause, it speaks to the need for a health minister to actually appear somewhat healthy, it is called the Twinkie clause.
