“We’re screwed”: 5 things Albertans need to know about the NDP budget

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

The Alberta budget just dropped. It’s the third one of Rachel Notley’s debt budgets and, of course, the NDP are still making it rain taxpayer cash down on all their friends and pet causes. 

Budgets are boring and complicated things and maybe even a little depressing these days so I’ll spare you all the pain of the gory details of the budget and boil it all down for you.

Watch my video to learn the five important things my fellow embattled Alberta taxpayers need to know about this latest trainwreck of a budget.

Basically, we are screwed.

Also… The steps taken by Donald Trump to make the USA energy independent are spilling across our borders and British Columbia’s ability to supply Asia with natural gas will prevail, sooner than many eco-nuts would have hoped…

Billy Howard,,, Rest assured that as the provincial election approaches here in B.C., more and more will be reminded of the unfolding disaster in next door Alberta, and the last 9 ruinous years of NDP rule here… It forced many of us to move East only to return when the NDP was gone… Alberta is “sandwiched” by two provinces that have previously experienced the “joys” of years of NDP insanity, and they are not about to forget that harsh step into the darkness…

Dave Grohn, Albertans have demanded that the right unite again under one banner. That is a collective start. Albertans will not make the same mistake twice. However, it has come to light that unionized school boards work very hard at pushing marxist and socialist agendas with various components and activities throughout grade school education. Not to mention university nonsense which is the norm these days. Conservatism has to take a very long term approach, starting from education and right up to the working environment. We must engage our youth to even hope to have a future.

I keep hearing people rightly complaining about the NDP but no where do I here anybody talk about how to throw them out of office. until people start to get serious about doing something about it there is no sense in taking anybody’s armchair punditry seriously at all. put your damn collective heads together and find a way to throw the NDP out before they see another election. if you don’t there wont be a province of Alberta left when the election comes…..and that’s the NDP’s plan folks.

Further to Rebecca Maxwell’s comment, none other than lying Shannon Phillips was quoted a while back as to how it was better to introduce much of their policy through the schools because they expect too much push back from mom, dad and families. The particular item at the time was concerning the carbon tax, but you can be sure that the "weird and sleazy " sexual soup , and the convoluted climate lies and other very questionable dipper policy initiatives are all of concern. It is incumbent for parents to be diligent and not let the socialist criminals sneak any nefarious gems into the school curriculum. Remember their assault on home schooling as well. They want total control like all good commy elites.

Canadian Mongrel….You make a great point and it saddens me to no end. It only goes to show if you have a pack of ideological ass clowns in power, they can ruin something that took generations of commitment, hard work, sweat and toil, and much physical and mental suffering (world wars etc.)…they can ruin this in the blink of an eye. Sadly we all know of the other “dangerous” governments operating in Canada now.

If any one reads my rants you will recall my railings and warnings about our school kids and the vile indoctrination used by the left wing loons. My kids are long grown up, but I cringe at what society will become if all we have in the future are diciples of the Trudeau, Wynne and Notley trio of dictators.

Very good comments fellow Rebels.

Read the NDP Constitution . . . these folks are full out Marxists . . . the philosophy that collapsed Venezuela and the Soviet Union . . . the insane left just want to try one more time, hoping that this time the results might be different . . . lol

The NDP hates Alberta & Albertans. There is no way I can believe otherwise. Everything they do is contrary to what is best for Alberta & Albertans. Who would EVER approve a Carbon Tax in a jusrisduction so dependant on the Oil & Gas Industry for it’s very survival? Who would spend like there is no tomorrow & rack up debt for generations if they had the best interest of their people in their heart? Either the NDP (NOTLEY) is insane or they hate us.

Will the rebel media please address the scandal from Alberta Education supporting and funding websites for kids 5-17 that have links to porn and adult websites? It is so outrageous that the minister of education is directing our kids to porn trying to sexualize our children. Please report on this! Police investigation has been initiated.

Wait, BC has good roads and hospitals? Is that just in the Lower Mainland?

What do you expect? They don’t have 1 qualified person. Cici is a social worker. What is shay anderson? What a motley crew. I mean, compared to US politics, this is real news. Can we lower ourselves to have violent protests? Not my premier! Not my PM!

Nice analogy, CM.

It is not only that Peter. What took 65 years, three generations, to build has been destroyed in less than two. Heck, it was destroyed in the Non-Democratic Party’s first year, all they are doing now is ploughing the ashes under to keep the wings of the Phoenix clipped.

Art said, “Who cares.”

I do.

All of Ralph Klein’s hard work and Alberta’s pain during the Klein era is being undone at an exponential rate. Granted the PCs started that trend, but the NDP are riding it for all it’s worth.

They know they will be a one term mistake. I would rather have the high spending PCs in office at this point than the NDP destroyers. At least the PCs were business friendly.

What I shake my head at is the borrowing to pay day to day operating costs by these no-minds. It is like going to the bank to borrow money for KD for supper. Mind you, that is what the Non-Democratic Party is driving the lower end of the populace to do, except that lower end will be turned away from the bank.

What I don’t understand is why BC Premier Christy Clark isn’t using the Alberta NDP disaster as fodder in the election campaign here in BC. The Alberta disaster is gold for Clark’s re-election, if she uses it. John Horgon, the NDP leader here in BC is basically a carbon copy of Notley. God help us if he wins.
commented 2017-03-17 19:20:43 -0400
Who cares. All the boomers have retired to BC. We gen x also chose low taxes, ‘free’ services and passing the tab down the line. Except we Trumped the boomers: we didn’t have kids! Here’s the tab Mr. Chin, Mr. Sanchez and Mr. Mohammed. :-)

So, Mac, you are saying that the deficit and ultimately the debt will be even bigger than the NDP budget reports?

Not surprised.

Notley knows she is gone next election so she is going to spend and spend and spend with absolutely no conscience whatsoever.
commented 2017-03-17 18:59:27 -0400
The NDP do not put all their spending as a deficit as similar to the PCs capital spending on roads, hospitals, schools and other items are called assets and do not appear as a deficit.

DAMN i sure am glad i planted that money tree a couple years ago.
