“Arrogant” Trudeau’s campaigning fails: Conservatives win Medicine Hat by-election

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Massive crowds came out to see Justin Trudeau when he campaigned in Medicine Hat for the by-election there. Trudeau, always arrogant, predicted that meant the Liberals would win. But they didn’t.

The Conservative candidate, Glen Motz, won 69.9 per cent of the vote, up one per cent from last year’s election.

So the Conservative Party, with no permanent leader, and after 12 months of wall-to-wall Trudeaumania from the media party, holds its own.

The Liberals got 25.6 per cent, up from 18 per cent last time.

But look at the most interesting statistics:

The Christian Heritage party came in third. And then look at the teeny tiny parties at around one per cent each — the Rhino Party, the Libertarian Party.

The NDP got one per cent, too.

Just a few votes more than the Rhino.

Now, the Ottawa press gallery thinks this is about Thomas Mulcair or the federal NDP. But the Ottawa press gallery couldn’t find Medicine Hat on a map.

It’s about Rachel Notley and her destroyers. The NDP that’s bringing in a carbon tax in two months, where the bullseye is right over energy-producing cities like Medicine Hat.

That’s what 17 months of Rachel Notley has done.

Justin Trudeau lost — only a fool like him would and his courtiers have thought he had a chance.

The real loser though is the NDP, who have never polled this low in Medicine Hat in their history.

Being from Manitoba I am appalled that they voted for the corrupt liberal party. I have family that are still there, and I know one of my younger sisters voted for them. I can’t even discuss politics with her, because she is such a communist, and she turns into a crazy contemptuous wingnut, if I even mention conservatism. I don’t even want to know who the rest voted for, though I suspect they voted for the traitor too.

After the provincial years of bob rae,i thought nobody would EVER vote ndp again, in All of Canada. how many mandates have they received, provincially, since then? blue MUST be vigilant.

Federal politics does not always follow provincial politics.

Take Manitoba as an example. The provincial Liberals got like 3 or 4 seats. But the federal Liberals won big in Manitoba.

The point is, the federal NDP have always been irrelevant in Alberta, and has nothing to do with provincial politics.

Penson. You took the view the other day it served Ezra right for not getting accredited by the UN due to his contrarian opinion, yet, you seem to think it’s ok for you to have a contrarian opinion here at TheRebel. But surely you don’t want to be a hypocrite do you? You should delete yourself to avoid such hypocrisy, don’t you think? It’s similar to “self de-populating” (in order to SAAAVE the planet!!!!) You can do it!! Go ahead, give it the old college try. Delete yourself from TheRebel.

“Penson….If the Liberals had won, you would have been saying, see I told you so, the Liberals are here to rule everywhere so get used to it, but they lost & so, you’re singing a different tune now, you little hypocrite. Trudeau has become even more arrogant if that’s possible, thinking he’s so popular, nobody can touch him, well Medicine Hat told him different, NO Trudeau you’re not the king & you don’t get the coronation.”

Bang on Yvette. Little Penson is far more than just a hypocrite as his posts continually prove. Above all else he is a shining example of the twisted mentality that calls itself a Liberal faithful.

But we’re scraping bottom as it is. Alberta strong will survive despite what they say about oil prices. Stupids. Alberta will destroy the NDPigs

Sean Penson : It is ‘conceited’, first of all. Secondly, the liberals were largely undone by this moron’s visit. He is the worst sales pitch for anything liberal without the help of George Soros. Massive voter fraud up here is the only reason we have to deal with this moron monarch in the first place. Mark my words, there are forces working to uncover our mess as well for the world. The MSM is next for Wikileaks, and they tie directly to Canada and our governments, both federal and provincial.

Do you have a country without extradition picked out yet? If not, you had better be good at hiding, or head…

Penson…..the liberals are in second, do you know what that means……first loser!
I know of the Sakamoto family from where i live, 120km east. Decent, decent people, he ran for the wrong party in these parts. Fuck you liberals, with the exception of Mr. Sakamoto.

The real story, as I see it, it the looming disaster for the NDP in Alberta. It’s safe to say that the next Alberta provincial election, is the Conservatives to loose! They HAVE to get their act together, both the PC party and the Wild Rose MUST get back together and join forces. If I were an Albertan, I would strongly campaign for a merger like the Reform/PC Party did federally. Complete with name change to simple Conservative Party of Alberta. If the few “progressives” feel left out, too damn bad, they should NEVER have been part of any Conservative political entity.

Sean you little guppy.You suck.

I live in the Hat and I can tell you the only reason the libs did as well as they did is because a lot of people voted personally for Stan Sakamoto as they consider him to a “very nice guy.”

Two thoughts:

1. If I remember my history correctly, the first CCF candidate elected in Canada was in The Hat. So those darned voters did not respect traditional history like the NOn-Democratic Party and the Liberal Party of Corruption always do.

2. I wonder if Mr. Sakamoto is descended from war transport of the Japanese. You know when suspected enemy collaborators, not all Japanese as is usually touted, and their families were moved to Southern Alberta; and many made a successful life for themselves and their families from the business opportunities available such that they did not return. Writing as one with acquaintances from that successful business community, at least successful until May, 2015.

Doesn’t really count. It’s Alberta – CPC country.

But it’s all good – a solid “FUCK YOU TRUDEAU” resonating from Medicine Hat.

The real problem is Notley – Notley needs to be shot dead.

I knew Medicine Hat would get it right. I’ll bet the response from the dictator, will be to import more faux refugees, as a punishment to the residents. Narcissist don’t like to lose, especially in such a public way. This was a slap to Notley’s face too! I’m so pleased.

It is time that the Notley government got the slap in the face that they deserve-it will be a slow process, but, it will go full circle.

Thanks EZRA , I needed that cool cup of water

Nobody thought anyone but the Conservative Party would win here, especially Liberals; they came in a distant but respectable second place. There is no need to get conceded with a Tory win here.
