“Carbon tax is theft!” Alberta Wide Rally attendees gather in Calgary to demand referendum

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

The Alberta Wide Rally brought thousands of Albertans together to push back against the carbon tax in eleven different localities across the province. 

The goal of organizers is to collect 500,000 signatures to send a message to the government that Albertans don’t support the carbon tax and to push the tax to a fair vote decided by citizens.

Watch my video to see my conversations with several rally attendees in Calgary, including parents that are concerned with their kid’s futures and even some kids that don’t think the NDP are good for their futures.

I also talked to a pair who think the whole thing is a scam and a fraud because the science doesn’t back up claims that climate change is going to be catastrophic to the planet.

One couple I spoke with even asked for Rachel Notley to resign!

Organizers say they’ve collected over 900 signatures in order to send the tax to a referendum, so that Albertans can decide whether they want it or not.

They also collected almost $1,500 for the veteran’s food bank and accepted donations at the event.

This protest needs to be done throughout Canada, and a referendum on the Carbon tax as well, as I hear the liberals soon plan to take that right away from us when no one is watching as well, just like the Islamophobia bill they passed while we slept.

“Your” – shows possession. i.e.: “Your car”.
“You’re” an abbreviation of “you are”. i.e.: “You’re a fine fellow”.

“Woman”- pronounced “wuhman”. Singular. One female.
“Women”- pronounced " wihmen" or as the lefties like to spell it “wimmin”. Plural more than one female.

This past weekend, global news actually showed a clip of the carbon tax protests.

Heartening to hear from so many Albertans who care enough to stand up for their province.

Maybe this can spread to other provinces. I’d like to see the sheeple in Manitoba stand up like this. Naaah. Never happen.

They have to be stopped from shutting down the coal fired power plants as well. Or we’ll shufer the same fate as the rest that have tried it. Industry needs affordable
power just like the rest of do. With it, there will be a snowballing effect of of industry shut downs.
