Which Conservative party will defend Albertans from NDP’s destructive carbon tax? You be the judge

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

In Alberta, we are waiting for Rachel Notley’s carbon tax to take effect in January 2017.

Rachel Notley and the NDP have been less than transparent about the costs of the carbon tax from the very beginning. The official NDP line is that the carbon tax will cost the average Alberta family $443 per year. In actuality, the carbon tax will cost Alberta families thousands of dollars in hidden price increases to the cost of our food, clothing and everything else we buy. But we’ll never know the full extent, since the NDP refused to do a full economic assessment of their tax on all the things.

But who will defend us from the carbon tax? Who will stand up for Albertans and repeal this if we give them the chance?

I take a look at the statements about the carbon tax from both conservative parties in Alberta.

You can judge for yourself.

Ron Voss – where did you hear the WR were ever in favour of this evil carbon tax? This is the first I’ve ever heard of this, who said this anyways? Can you let me know here, thank you.

Randy said, "The Government (all levels) is completely corrupted. They are being run by criminal elements. "

What’s the difference between government and organized crime?

One of them is organized.

The Government (all levels) is completely corrupted. They are being run by criminal elements. All revolutions in history are the results of Government overreach, taxation, and corruption. The corrupt leaders know their days are numbered and they are grabbing everything they can as fast as they can before the hammer falls. And it will fall, it is inevitable.

I am not sure I care anymore about Alberta. I am off to Saskatchewan where Conservatives still govern. Only time will tell if the Manitoba Conservatives are red or blue.

If Wildrose is to remain viable, it must get rid of Brian Jean immediately!

No one should care what it takes. Put him in a bag and take him out with the rest of the garbage.

Time to get someone in the leadership with balls. Brian Jean is a castrated CINO.

There is never any money for me.

Got to agree with Canadian Mongrel, the indebtedness we will see at the end of what we will surely be calling “Rachael’s Reign Of Terror”, will be such that recovery could be in question. How bad?? BAD!!!!

Wildrose had better push extremely hard on strengthening their anti carbon tax position, and should definitely clear up their misstep of the past on said issue. If they do not push hard on this, no more money for me.

DJBT,STPC,WTS and NN

Used to be a proud Albertan, not so sure anymore, not even sure if I want to live here anymore. Saskatchewan is looking better all the time.

Based on the apparent budget numbers I calculated that if they collect what they expect to collect, once in full swing the tax will cost us $620 per Albertan per year, equal to $2480 per year for a family of four. See my reasoning here: http://heinzegroup.com/insight.htm#16

It’s gotta be large majority win to restore investor confidence
Thanks SHEILA
Enjoy the weekend

Too bad no one will take a page out of Trumps playbook and stop sucking up to the left. If someone would call it as it is they would receive a landslide. Alberta hasn’t been conservative since they turfed the So Creds wayyyyy back. At best they were CINOs.

I don’t trust any of them.

. KEN HANSON,
Sniper is an alternative.

Wildrose is the only option to end the pain.

I predict that once Notley spending reaches over $200 billion, Alberta will reached levels of indebtedness greater than Ontario. Keeping in mind I predict Alberta’s population will have decreased by the next election by well over 750,000. Alberta will be such a wreck, who would want to live there, let alone govern it?

Stelmach resigned because he couldn’t handle the corruption in the PC party. Redford was more than happy to carry the torch and got burned. " Anything that ends can be lived through", and I can’t wait to watch the EndDP campaign in the next election. I will be at every rally screaming LIAR

It doesn’t matter.

There is an exodus out of Alberta and the tax base will be a sliver of what it once was.

I would not want to be drowning when there was only a PC and WildRose member on the shore. They would argue over who was best suited to swim out to save me. That’s assuming they would even bother given the sad state of affairs Alberta politics is experiencing.
But then my Province which I now call Wynniezuela is in some respects worse off. The corruption is so deep that it has become the new normal. I honestly don’t know if we will recover as Provinces or as a Country. What these socialist liberals and their sycophants have done is nothing short of treason.

P/C’s became non-progressive slowly starting with Stelmach and finished off by Redford (the final two P/C premiers are just potential footnotes, maybe). They, the Liberals and the Alberta Party should just unite into one Liberal party. Thinking of P/C’s uniting with the W/R is ludicrous, because P/C’s are Liberal. Best bet is for the few remaining Kleinists to cross to the W/R, and let their old party rot into Liberals.

Next point. The Non-Democratic Party will leave such a financial mess in 2020 that it will be hard for even the W/R to immediately remove the tax. Even Harper took awhile to reduce the GST. However, they will work to identify Union based waste, eliminate it and the carbon tax.

The Wildrose party would be more believable if they would renounce their previous position of embracing man-made global warming.

“Both” conservative parties? There’s only one, and any Alberta voter who has not yet figured this out needs to give their head a good, long, hard shake.
Forget uniting the right, that’s very nearly a fait accompli. Instead, unite the left under the name “Progressive,” with Jansen as opposition leader. Give Notley her dad’s old chair as the lone dipper.
Maybe then we can get on with it.

Conservatives who fight each other while Alberta is being raped by Bolshi thugs are bigger A-holes than the Notley pirates.

If you don’t believe you province should come before your partisan seltishnes, you can better serve Alberta by living somewhere else.
