2 ways Notley NDP could take the edge off Alberta’s agricultural disaster

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Brazeau County, in South Central Alberta has declared an agricultural state of emergency in hopes of getting disaster assistance from the province.

The state of emergency was created by hail during the summer and an early season snowfall, putting a frosty end to harvest.

Minister of Municipal Affairs Danielle Larivee said there would be disaster relief programs available to help farmers who in some cases have 80% of their crops still in the field.

Fantastic. But that’s a one time fix.

Watch my video to see the other two things the NDP could do to help farmers survive this terrible year and every other bad year.

This harvest hit in the pocket book for farmers is being made worse by NDP and Liberal policies. The NDP, no matter how much they carbon tax us, they just can't control the weather. But they can control how much more expensive they’re making the business of farming.

But I’m not hopeful. If 200,000 unemployed Albertans aren’t enough to get the NDP to back off on their ideological agenda, then an agricultural disaster never will be.

plus the 3 dollar a head cattle tax in lethbridge, plus the increased cost of everything due to the carbon tax, higher property taxes, school fees, screwing with the electricity system the cost of that is yet to be told. The ndp are beginning to feel the heat from Jason Kenny, the election in the hat was a federal one, but they can read the writing on the wall. As the end of the ndp in alberta nears look for complete panic and vote buying on the part of this ship of ndp fools. All the new gov workers they have employed and what is better ? what has changed ? Can anyone tell me what all the new gov employees even do ? besides suck up tax dollars at an alarming rate. Just what have they done for the unemployed oil workers ???? homeless see more homeless every day now, hospitals no improvement, can anyone tell me of anything they have accomplished.

@bill Elder….Wise words indeed. I was involved in fish farming for over 40 years. The problem there was you couldn’t get insurance. The only time I found someone to do it the cost was beyond imagination so I opted to live on the edge. What a hairy ride, endured some massive losses but never got or never expected the government to bail me out.

Her aim is to hit high on the globalist Marxist agenda.
The good citizens of Alberta be damned.

Bill Elder some wise words, but i could see the wicked witch making some insurance changes to prevent them from having that available. Her aim is to completely destroy the industry or have it enslaved to communism.

Peter – I saw all this crap when I used to help ranchers control their pests and predators. I used to shoot coyotes and cats that raided live stock operations – back in the day only some ranchers would hire you to get rid of stock killers the rest were selling a cow or pig or other carcass to a buyer then keeping the hide to show to the govt. agri agent at get paid for a predator loss – when in fact he made money selling the meat then capitalizes on the “loss”.

I saw whole good crops left to be ploughed under because they turned our to be a sub grade and the crop was insured as A grade – best deer harvest I ever saw was when they ploughed under a lot of sugar beet acreage to keep the price high – damn deer were pawing at those fields all winter..

What Bill Elder said.

Couldn’t have said it better myself.

It’s called crop insurance, buy it. Gambling on crop yield is a risk of farming – when you win you keep all the profits when you lose you run to government to have the public underwrite your loss..

Keep my tax dollars away from agricultural welfare. I don’t pay you for unharvested crops – that is an insurance underwriter’s job. Neither I will subsidize producers for not over producing to aid your marketing board in keeping Ag commodity prices artificially high.

This smells like the Agri version of “too big to fail” crony capitalism.

In fact there’s a fourth way they could assist Alberta…! That would be by assisting with the paperwork and working with other like-minded premieres for the west to separate.!

Keep hounding them for us SHEILA, that’s why we look for your reports every day

It seems by their actions they are enemies of the province, these are the children of the commies in the video that DIANNA WEST presented

This article never mentioned the third way that the NDP could help out… That is by each and everyone of them resigning while apologizing to the people of Alberta for the damage they have done to this province and country
