Why is debt-ridden Alberta NDP STILL sending cash to Quebec? Ask Joe Ceci

Ezra LevantRebel Commander
 

Quebec has a surplus, Alberta's running a huge deficit — so why are Notley's NDP still sending transfer payments to Quebec? I think I know one reason...

Because Canada is a welfare state. Welfare for the lazy individuals. Welfare for lazy provinces. And lazy corporations like Bombardier.

We need a renegotiation of confederation! The resources are Albertas not Ottawas! No more equalization payments! Don’t assume Alberta will always be part of Canada! Trudeau said Quebec is a nation; SO IS ALBERTA!

Why??? Because the Demarais and Dussault families of Montreal (Canada’s resident Quebec pigs) will dictate that the ROC pays Quebec blood sucking leeches forever more.

Get used to it Canada – this will never change. These “pigs of Quebec”, namely Demarais and Dussault are also the reason Canada has a “man-child” and offspring of a rock band fuck pig whore running Ottawa.

Embarassing to say the least – white trash is residing at 24 sussex.

Andrew if your false comment was right then the shale gas in Quebec would be factored in. So please tell us why it is not Mr Science.

Peter Andrew only thinks what he makes up in his head is reality. He will not read a damn thing.

Commissar Notley is just doing her bit for the grand plan of the “internationale” – hollow out Canada’s last bastion of free enterprise wealth engines and energy self sufficiency and deliver the impoverished husk into the grasping claws of the Globalist cartels in Ottawa, NY, Brussels and Riyadh at 10cents on the dollar – .

Well done comrade Notley you have served the cause of international neo-sovietism well.

Andrew Stephenson claimed, “Because equalization is based upon economic capacity, not on nominal budget balance?”

No, no, NO, no, NO!

Equalization in based upon five criteria; personal income taxes, business income taxes, consumption taxes, property taxes and natural resource revenues.

The ONLY thing that comes close to “economic capacity” is “natural resource revenues”.

Damn, Andrew, read the damn document at the link below and become educated for once in your “scientists” life!!

Manitoba had a republic for a short time way back. Wonder if we could stir up enough intestinal fortitude to revive it or the concept of Assiniboina again? Long live the Non-socialist Republic of Manitobah !

When will some politicians in the west grow a pair and have at least BC AB SK separate from the rest of this country. That is the best thing that we in the west could do. If we do not separate, then the political powers down east and Quebec will continue to rape us for our resources and money.

Like taxes, it’s based on how much money you have, not how much you spend.

Does anyone think a transfer payment would ever come OUT of Quebec? They could be the only have province and there wouldn’t be a dime going out to help the rest of Canada. This has been nothing but a farce for years. The elites of la belle Provence, sipping their lattes , demanding more and more money from Alberta. In the same breath, they had unbridled criticism of our environmental policies, but of course the next day the phone would ring from Quebec and the old "Is that transfer payment cheque in the mail, oui?? I have a question that I would like an answer to. Alberta has sent $$Billions and billions to all parts of Canada, doing far more than what our share should even be. In the mean time, Quebec has ample energy resources but will not develop them. How can this be??? Same in the Maratimes. With the passage of time I hate to, but must conclude that it probably would have been a MUCH better scenario had Alberta left Confederation years ago.

As for the NDP atrocity in Alberta now, I only hope there is something left after the “cleansing” occurs at the next provincial election. The provincial enema will be a joyous occasion. If there is an east-west pipeline by then, Notley and crew could be the first test run. They could be a gift to Coderre. Some more shit for the St. Lawrence. The present situation is bleak. Having Joe Ceci holding the purse strings is tantamount to turning Edward Scissorhands loose in a balloon factory. Ceci could’t manage a one man popcorn stand. Notley’s cabinet is a bunch of useless missfits. We have a mirror image in Ottawa I might add. Very SAD.

ANDREW STEPHENSON: If you are out there Andrew, I happened to read your posts on another Rebel topic. What type of scientist(s) are you? Seems you are quite the idiot, I’m just not sure on the science thing.

Because of the myth that you can’t gain power if you do not get the Quebec vote

Before threat of separation caused so many companies to mov their head offices and main plants to Toronto and Ontario in the 1970s, Quebec was the economic engine of Canada, yet it was a have not province and has always been a have not province continuing to get money for pure political reasons.

Especially today because without Quebec a few French/English speaking politicians and bureaucrats would not hold power today as they would have to compete with the non-officially bilingual majority

Because equalization is based upon economic capacity, not on nominal budget balance? Alberta in a recession is still wealthier than Quebec when it’s doing fairly well.
