Liberal MP “proud” to pay more for gas after Notley’s carbon tax hits

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator Sheila Gunn Reid
 

Calgary Liberal MP and Veterans Affairs Minister, Kent Hehr, wants you to feel ashamed for not enjoying having to give the government more of your hard earned money.

The carbon tax hit Alberta wallets for the first time January 1st, but instead of relating to Albertans who resent this tax, uppity Liberal MP Hehr, was bragging about how good it made him feel.

He tweeted a picture of himself filling up his van and said:

“Actually, I’m very proud to be paying for this tank of gas. It’s my first fill-up since January 1”

Ya, you unemployed Albertans, try to be more cheerful while the government takes more cash out of your family’s pockets.

Kent Hehr makes $251,900 per year. In March, as the unemployment rate was skyrocketing in Alberta, Kent Hehr gave himself a raise of $4,400 per year.

Alberta has 200,000 people unemployed. Calgary has a 10.3% unemployment rate, the highest in the country for five months in a row.

But Kent Hehr is boasting about how good it feels to spend more on gas.

Can he be anymore out of touch?

If he is so proud to pay more why didn’t he just donate to an environmental group each time he filled up before the carbon tax?

Not that CO2 is even a problem, on the contrary… It is a huge lie. But if Canada went dark tomorrow we would reduce the global output
by less than 1.5% total global emissions. Why are we being charged like we are major contributors in an anything but true blue cause to save the world..??
This is like where my neighbor gets to drive drunk and I get the pay the fines and do his time.

PS: Did you or Justin paint your shirt? It’s so well done it had to be a Liberal. Maybe even the drunken Magoo who’s off to China perhaps?

Yeah Kent Hehr, you are only an MP because of Disney’s Prince Justin’s Affirmative Action Cabinet. That is your only qualification. I guess it must be easy filling up your car after Jan1st since you make in a month what my mother gets in 9 months. That’s her pension from my father who worked 30 years for it. Yours will be what? 100% after only 6 years of gleefully rubbing it in Canadian’s faces how happy you are to pay more for gasoline? You Effing Twat!!
Hey! Say your name 3 times fast and what do you hear?

Haha—- Yes Liza Rosie- we must never notice the obvious.
I wonder how many times this cripple has used his affliction to gain votes. I have no intention of being nice to him— because he is a USER.
Is that the best staged video?
I am sure that you NEVER get out of any Van at any time to pump your own gas.
Why is it it that when you become a Politician —-it is OK to LIE ?
I am not strong enough to pump gas with a coupla fingers on the trigger.
Neither are you.
Are you strong enough to tell the TRUTH?

You realize that we are going to be vilified and called ‘deplorables’ for ridiculing someone in a wheel chair. We are not criticising him because he is in a wheel chair, or is over weight (which is probably do to his being in a wheel chair) or even that he dresses funny. We are criticising him because he acts as if he is oblivious to the damage and hurt his governments policies are wreaking on taxpayers. His ‘let them eat cake’ attitude does nothing but inflame already angry citizens. It’s his politics and his ‘I don’t care, tough nuts’ attitude that brings out this wrath. Rubbing it in our faces usually gets a response. If he or any one else doesn’t like it, don’t poke already ticked off people with a stick. Better still stop being such pigs at the trough.

Nice shirt . It looks very wintry and warm.

I bet he called the press himself for this liberal photo op!

What a brain dead clown . . . not only is he paying more for fuel, everything that rides in a truck will cost more as well. But he could always save money by buying fewer groceries I suppose !
commented 2017-01-10 11:02:33 -0500
When you expense everything it’s hard to relate. I wounder if he thinks the GHGs he emits don’t count like Glen Murray here in the once great province of ON. Their sh*t don’t stink either, just ask em.

CHRISTINE MCGUIRE…You would be welcome joining Alberta if we can get out. Northern Ontario seems more akin to Alberta than to the “centre of the universe” anyway.

One caveat…You would have to deal with Teresa Spence first. That corrupt whore would not be welcome.

As for C**T HAIR I actually like it……KUNT HERH, not so much.
commented 2017-01-10 09:08:36 -0500
Love your commentary Sheila! The carbon tax is just a money grab. It won’t help Canadistan or the world. I wish central/northern Ontario could separate with the western provinces. We are being taken over by Toronto elite who party here and eastern French creeping into the area. Help!
commented 2017-01-10 07:51:07 -0500
Do ya suppose the dickheads who voted for this putz are “proud” too?
commented 2017-01-10 02:11:59 -0500
Yeah so proud i will have to give my money to this tax rather than using it for things i need to live.
commented 2017-01-10 02:09:57 -0500
Ron Voss sorry did not see that you beat me to that comment.
commented 2017-01-10 02:08:52 -0500
So pay for everyones added costs and imagine how proud you will be then.
And his government is offering PSAC members a whopping 1%. Wish i was as benevolent as a liberal.
commented 2017-01-10 02:03:32 -0500
Only a trough sucking liberal could possibly be proud of virtue signaling while filling up on the tax payers’ dime. And while everybody else suffers. What a hypocrite. As Yvette asked, what has he possibly done to deserve his pay check?

I understand this gentleman is the minister of Veterans Affairs… Don’t you think the veterans would be better off with a veteran administrating to Veterans Affairs…?? Just saying…!!

Yes, I think a veteran would be much better than the arrogant Hehr. At least the vet should have a good awareness of the issues but probably lacks on the tangled bureaucratic policies and procedures. Leslie is sitting there in Question Period doing pretty much nothing. He could do better than Hehr.
commented 2017-01-10 01:27:27 -0500
I can’t help it. Every time I see Kent Hehr I think of Larry Flynt. Both are brazen, have little couth and loud like a union leader loud.

Our system of government is absolutely awful. This privileged, arrogant, entitled liberals is most dispicable when he is glad we have to pay more at the pumps and all the things we have to purchase. Making over $250,000 plus expense accounts and enjoying that we have to pay, what an awful attitude these ndpees and libereals have. No morals, no standards, and no conscience, just pure evil. It’s judt a blatant waste of our money, it’s just wrong how much money they get for doing nothing, but stealing from us.

The prostitute who gives ALL of her money to her pimp is the poster child of marxism. BIG LEROY LUVS ME…I AM HIS BOTTOM BITCH…HE IS GOING TO TAKE CARE OF ME…

What exactly do these ministers do to earn these great big salaries plus they all have umpteenth assistants, etc. so how much work are they themselves really doing?
Who in their right mind enjoy paying more taxes, such damn phony baloney by this man who can afford to be a big talker because he reaps the benefits that somebody elses hard work pays for, so maddening.

Kent Hehr makes $251,900 per year. In March, as the unemployment rate was skyrocketing in Alberta, Kent Hehr gave himself a raise of $4,400 per year.

What a complete loser this “tool” is.

I hope you liked spending our money on the tank of fuel.

Just because you are in a scooter and disabled, doesn’t give you the right to spit in the tax payers face.

KENT HEHR, you are an asshole. I hope you are booted out of politics in the next election.
commented 2017-01-09 21:32:09 -0500
Lying token hire – bet he thinks his MP perks will insulate him from the tax pinch the rest of feel.

Of course there is the fact that all this carbon taxing has zero effect on the climate, which makes his “pride” in being taxed for no reason a form of masochism.

Imagine if this was a conservative mp. Don’t matter. This isn’t the USA and the Rebel isn’t MAGA. The cousins down south kicked out the libs BIG TIME, we voted them in when things were getting better. Welcome to Nova Sweden/Germany. Fuck this shit! Walking dead is gonna look like a fucking care bears movie before these bastards are through.

“Kent Hehr makes $251,900 per year. In March, as the unemployment rate was skyrocketing in Alberta, Kent Hehr gave himself a raise of $4,400 per year.”

That states it clearly – he is an overpaid pig at the trough!!
The Canadian average yearly wage is $50,000 !!!

“As of September 2016, the average wage for Canadian employees was $952 a week – or just under $50,000 a year. This represents a 0.4% increase over the same period last year.”
Check out the average wage in Alberta – ◾Alberta – $58,133
