"What a disgrace": Notley snubs U.S. Congressional delegation to Alberta oil sands

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

The U.S. purchases about 99% of Canada's oil exports. Sometimes American leaders from both parties visit the oil sands to see them for themselves.

A Congressional delegation visited last week, headed by Republican presidential candidate and powerful senator, Lindsay Graham.

Saskatchewan Premier Brad Wall personally escorted them around, while lobbying for the Keystone XL pipeline.

When the delegation stopped off in Alberta, though, Premier Rachel Notley refused to meet with them.

What a disgrace.

It was only when the Wildrose opposition party embarrassed them that the NDP scrambled into action.

Do you need anymore proof that the NDP hates the oil sands?


Alberta’s NDP is using a fake "public survey" to push climate change policy.

If Jimmy Da Moron made any money he would know that at certain income level we pay a health tax .
commented 2015-09-06 18:30:38 -0400

I am fine with paying more in taxes for social programs and OHIP and whatever else – so that life is better for all Canadians. I just don’t focus on myself.
commented 2015-09-06 18:28:10 -0400

Yes – I pay for it and happily so. I love OHIP.

Every time Jimmy opines I think its dumbest thing I heard until he opens his mouth again.
commented 2015-09-06 17:52:56 -0400
Jimmy. I’m all for letting you keep more money in your pockets by reducing taxes. This, instead of giving money to a big government, where high paid unionized and heartless bureaucrats wittle away it, redistribute it and if your lucky, give it back to you pennies on the dollar. My way way you can keep more of your money and buy your own stuff. See?
commented 2015-09-06 17:49:28 -0400
maybe the reason is she just does not know anything to be with US delegations?! full of pretensions to be a leader. A ‘TRUE’ leader was born to be one like PM Harper of Conservative Party!

“I am going to guess that you pay taxes”

The taxes he pays comes from the same money that the taxes go towards. A vicious circle.
commented 2015-09-06 17:39:22 -0400
Thats what it is all about for you socialists somebody else paying your bills. And of course the bills of anyone that wants to come here and has never paid taxes. Parasites love a system where they can live off of other peoples hard work.
commented 2015-09-06 17:39:14 -0400
What free stuff is that Jimmy? Who do you think pays for that bill that you seem to think does not exist? Nothing is free, for long. I am going to guess that you pay taxes that are well down scale, or you would understand what people her are saying.
Your 45 year free life is soon going to change. Socialism has a life cycle, and it’s about done.

“Who doesn’t love free stuff "

There is no free stuff. Someone has to pay for it.
commented 2015-09-06 17:36:14 -0400
The facts here are that the NDP is actively destroying Alberta’s economy just like the NDP have done in all the other provinces that have had the misfortune of an NDP government. And when Alberta goes down the celebrating from assholes like Jimmy and others will not last long when it hits their pocket book that Alberta is not paying a substantial portion of their damn bills anymore.
commented 2015-09-06 17:34:50 -0400
Who doesn’t love free stuff – that ultimately I am paying for with higher taxes and happily so. It’s great to be able to walk into a doctor’s office or hospital and walk out without a bill.
commented 2015-09-06 17:20:46 -0400
Yes parasites do tend to love socialist societies….
commented 2015-09-06 17:16:13 -0400
Jimmy. I think it is the free market, rule of law, capitalist portion of your life you like. Granted, you probably like all the free stuff too.
commented 2015-09-06 17:15:27 -0400

No actually – liberalism has been great to me for decades. If it wasn’t, I would vote differently.
commented 2015-09-06 17:07:35 -0400
No your not fine jimmy……
commented 2015-09-06 17:05:09 -0400
Socialist will resort to anything including fraud to make you see there truth. That is because they are so self righteous they believe they are saving you, that make the immoral thing they are doing justifiable. Kinda like someone that believes they are performing gods will.
commented 2015-09-06 17:04:37 -0400

I have been living a socialist life in Canada for 45 years – I am just fine.
commented 2015-09-06 17:02:59 -0400

And yet you don’t have the brain capacity to simply just ignore me if you don’t like what I have to say. THAT says everything about you.
commented 2015-09-06 17:02:08 -0400
Seriously – why are you such a whiny little pussy? Some people want diverse opinions here. YOU DON’T clearly – but other people do. ‘’"
Yes opinions not non sense and complete and total stupidity. Those aren’t helpful. The sooner you realize that the better off you will be. Your opinion is a joke socialism has demonstrated itself a failure over and over. Just watch what happens in Alberta over the next 4 years. A solid economically powerful Alberta full of happy people will become a welfare state full of angry pissed off people in the next 4 years. Just like Wynne and her socialist agenda have done to the once economic power house of Ontario destroyed it economically and driven the cost of living sky high.
How can you keep denying the facts when you live them everyday. Socialism works about as well as communism. It doesn’t. Not being able to recognize that makes it clear that you are an irrational person. Every time you comment 5 people tell you your an idiot. Does absolutely none of this ever occur to you, do you even have a clue?
commented 2015-09-06 16:57:00 -0400
So do you think people are insane or do you think the fix is in?

Sorry, NDP could not attend, they are all campaigning for their federal counterparts… by hoisting pictures of dead babies.

Cause and effect Brinkman.
What Peter said.
It is not a new concept.

Jimmy said in his usual eloquent manner, “Seriously – why are you such a whiny little pussy?”

I like discourse of opposing views from people with an intellect. That leaves you out.

Brinkman : Shut up. Nobody cares, go and get a job.
Jimmy Da Moron: Theres two reasons people ever vote NDP
1. They are to young to understand what will happen in time with the NDP in power, they have also been indoctrinated in Canadian high schools and are tricked into believing the NDP’s mushy rhetoric and they think it will make them a good inclusive person if they vote for them.
2. Many people simply don’t pay attention to history or are to stupid to realize the inevitable conclusion of NDP rule. The same thing will happen as has happened every other time the NDP have ruled a province. They will destroy it economically, give the unions to much power to ensure there reelection, tax us to death and begin taking away our liberties with there progressive agenda.
This time it will be on a country wide scale if voters don’t get there heads out of there asses.
commented 2015-09-06 16:50:30 -0400
Left wingers think the economy runs on pixie dust. Canada may be mostly a socialist country culturally, but not economically as Jimmy keep saying over and over and over. Repeating the same bloody crap over and over does not make it true.

Alberta’s Provincial Equalization payments supported most of the provinces. Without the oil and gas sector that the NDP are systematically dismantling, those equalization payments will dry up. The Jimmy’s social programs will suffer as well. (not that the brain dead idiot will ever figure that out)

LIZA ROSIE said It is not fear of the unknown. It is because we know.
Did you base that statement on reading tea leaves, looking into a crystal ball, did Ezra Levant say it was so or are you like a conspiracy theorist? Just trying to understand you better Liza…
commented 2015-09-06 16:45:54 -0400
We know what to expect from the Notely socialist government. Look at all she has accomplished to date. She isn’t shy, we don’t have to ‘wait and see’.
Her bozo moves will help the Conservatives get a majority in the federal election.

Brian Cameron said, "Shut up Brinkman, I am not interested in reading any of you left wing rag crap. Pretty sure no one else is either. "

Him and Jimmy can shove it, repeatedly and with meaning, where the sun does not shine.
