A group of Albertans have come together under one umbrella to organize a plebiscite against the NDP’s carbon tax and they’ll be holding a province wide rally in eleven locations on November 5th at noon.
I had a chance to speak with organizers Todd Beasley and Amanda McLean about the event details and why they think it’s so important for Albertans to organize around signing the documents.
Watch as they explain why the carbon tax is unnecessary and why they think the people of Alberta should speak up about it and have the final say on implementation.
Several MLA’s and MP’s are confirmed to speak at these events where they also hope to gather thousands of signatures from across the province to let the government know this needs to be put to the people.
They also want to clear up the misconceptions that the rallies are anti-NDP events.
For more details, you can visit their website at AlbertaWideRally.ca.
We can’t throw money at what’s considered to be a problem by the government, the media and non-scientists. Albertans didn’t vote for a carbon tax and The Rebel’s own survey shows that even NDP voters are disappointed with it.
If you’re interested in signing the petition to push it to a referendum, attend one of the eleven events happening across the province on November 5th from noon until 2pm.
