Here’s why “left-leaning” PCs like Lukaszuk FEAR Jason Kenney leadership

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator
 

Former Progressive Conservative MLA Thomas Lukaszuk, defeated in a leadership run by Jim Prentice and having lost his seat in the last election, came out swinging against Jason Kenney running for party leader. 

He called the proposal a “hostile takeover” and said Kenney should be banned from running.

In 2004, Lukaszuk lost his seat to the Liberal in the riding of Edmonton-Castle Downs by three votes. He wouldn’t accept the loss and appealed three times until a judge allowed previously rejected ballots – how democratic.

A "has-been" politician who lost the last election by 41.4%, he was likely hoping the PC’s would rise from the ashes so he'd regain relevancy but he knows there isn’t a spot at the table in a party run by Jason Kenney and that’s why he’s so angry.

He was Deputy Premier under Alison Redford, who was a liberal too.

The people of Castle-Downs likely tired of Lukaszuk long ago.

Maybe it was when he threatened to charge a dying 67 year old constituent with assault after being asked to leave his property while canvassing or maybe it was that $20,000 cell phone bill he racked up on an international trip. Either way, he can’t seem to stay away from controversy.

Normally, I wouldn’t pay attention to a former politician like Lukaszuk but his public freak out over Jason Kenney is relevant for one reason – it shows left-leaning PC’s fear a Jason Kenney take over. Fellow liberal-leaning MLA Sandra Jansen said she’d leave the party if it happens.

It’s clear that the Sandra Jansen’s and Thomas Lukaszuk’s of the PC party see Jason Kenney as a threat, knowing it would mean the end of their days in caucus.

Why else would two of the most liberal members of the party continue stirring up trouble?

Stop voting for lefties. They are not hard to spot. The problem is we want to be lied to so we vote for them with eyes wide shut.
commented 2016-07-02 03:58:00 -0400
We really need Jason to purge the party of the progressive element.

Holly Nicholas certainly gives the facts: “In 2004, Lukaszuk lost his seat to the Liberal in the riding of Edmonton-Castle Downs by three votes. He wouldn’t accept the loss and appealed three times until a judge allowed previously rejected ballots… . A ‘has-been’ politician who lost the last election by 41.4%, he was likely hoping the PC’s would rise from the ashes so he’d regain relevancy but he knows there isn’t a spot at the table in a party run by Jason Kenney and that’s why he’s so angry.”

Maybe an angry man like that should be elected. He is certainly dedicated.

Let the cleansing begin.

I hope the Rights do fragment themselves a bit further. They almost threatened the NDP for a while there.

With “conservatives” like Lukaszuk who needs a liberal party anyway?

By the way, one more point, MANY conservatives are apparently leaning towards this stealing, garbage carbon tax as well. This guy was saying we had better get used to this money grabbing tax because even A conservative Alberta government would probably not get rid of it. We all know once another TAX is initiated, we are stuck with it forever, no matter if this tax is a scam tax. The conservatives may make it less painful but it will remain. That had better NOT BE THE CASE. WE HAVE TO MAKE SURE TO ANYONE RUNNING FOR CONSERVATIVES, WE WANT NO CARBON TAX AT ALL.

My point is that Lucasik is absolutely no true conservative and we really don’t need to listen to anything he says or does. He stole as much money from us as he could as the majority of dirtbag politicians do with no sense of remorse. I am so very sick and tired of paying ANY tax at all because the majority goes for all government garbage and we see no value from our hard-earned money. Despicable, disgusting leaches, most of them are. Same goes for our regressive, lying msm. Heard a stat the other day that only 6% of Canadians trust they are telling the truth and our parasite left wing politicians rate about the same. That says it all.

Ryan Jesperson (I call him The Know-it-all Preacher Man) on CHED 630 radio in red deadmonton is a socialist, ndp lover and he loves Lucasik. Jesperson brought on Lucasik the other day and between these two idiots dodging all the problems this evil nutley witch and her band of misfits are causing, it truly was so unbearable to listen to those two. Jesperson, as usual, is all over the map on most days and his accentuated voice drives us all crazy here. But these two lovelies are totally inept in criticizing nutbars like they should. Turned them off within 10 minutes.

I believe every Tory that is power should cross over to the NDPigs. That way every true Conserative can vote with a clear conscience.
commented 2016-07-01 19:17:55 -0400
Red Tories should flake off.
commented 2016-07-01 19:15:05 -0400
After my Lukaszuk rant…

I still think the best bet for Alberta is an exchange of ideas between Jean, Fildebrandt, and Kenney plus any others who have the ideas and ability in a W/R convention before December. That will settle the whole issue of the right.

As far as the P/C’s, let them amalgamate with the Liberals and Alberta Party with Jansen crossing the floor to the NDP of course.

Is that “Assault an old man at his door because he is not voting correctly” Lucaszuk?

Is that the ultimate loser of life who lost to penultimate loser, Prentice, Lukaszuk?

Is that the backstabbing opportunist who saw no more gain in supporting Redford, Lukaszuk?

Is that the Minister who screwed every one of his departments, Lukaszuk?

Is it that PoS, Lukaszuk?

Is it the guy who needs to change his last name because of the bad rep to Ukrainian Canadians, Lukaszuk?

Is it that who gives a F**k what he says, Lukaszuk?

That Lukaszuk?

Time to toss the CINO types anyways

Ken Hanson said, "If they are smart they will beg Kenney to take the leadership. "

Yes, that is true, but they are not smart otherwise they would not be red tories.
commented 2016-07-01 17:20:53 -0400
It would be just perfect if all the red tories would leave the party in a huff if Jason Kenny took over. That would save time in weeding out all the manure … ummm, I mean all the red tories later.

There’s only one fitting thing to do with this scum, send them to Québec, they’d fit right in there.

Big question here, why are the current PC leadership not taking out the trash?

If it weren’t for Red-box, Lukaszuk and and all the other socialist red conservatives Alberta wouldn’t be in the clutches of the NDP lead by Marxist Notley and her unionized group of pricks. Next time, don’t EVER vote for anyone that is left leaning.
commented 2016-07-01 15:20:52 -0400
I prefer Maxime Bernier I think, because he is a more consistent person ideologically and I think he knows how to talk about conservative ideas in a way that will reach the general public and even win over liberals. I like Kenney in many respects, but he doesn’t have that.
commented 2016-07-01 15:18:26 -0400
Lukaszuk lost his seat to a Liberal. The message is clear; if you’re a liberal and the people know you’re a liberal, don’t pretend to be conservative.
Time for the Progressive Conservatives to pick a lane.
commented 2016-07-01 15:12:27 -0400
It is working already. The rats are scurrying around and looking to find a place to hide or launch a final desperate attack. Janzen the petulant liberal is finished and by September will be sitting by herself in the corner and nobody will talk to her. Lukaszuk has no hope of even getting elected again nor becoming the leader but like a miserable socialist will cause as much trouble as he can possibly muster. Kenney will eat him up and spit him out.
commented 2016-07-01 15:09:39 -0400
Lukaszuk and his CINO ilk are, obviously, hoping to draw Liberals and dissatisfied NDP into the PC ranks by presenting a leadership that is…just like Notley.

If Kenney’s appearance result in a civil war in the PCs, good. A good and complete bloodletting is a healthy thing.
commented 2016-07-01 14:55:41 -0400
If they are smart they will beg Kenney to take the leadership. Not that I am a particular fan of his but there is no way I will ever vote for the provincial conservatives with the current justin fan club running things. Vote Wildrose and unite the right.
