Alberta's NDP energy minister, Margaret McCuaig-Boyd, says she was forced, along with the other rural NDP MLAs, to vote against her own constituents, and approve the farm unionization law called Bill 6.
Of course, she could have stood with her constituents, and voted against the bill. It would have made her a hero. But no.
Now get this: When she stood up in the legislature, she cried. She said she had been cyberbullied.
But I don’t believe her. Because McCuaig-Boyd is not the first Alberta NDP MLA to claim a threat of violence.
She’s the fourth.
And the first three have all admitted they were lying, and apologized. It's so bizarre.
Ironically, the NDP are the ones who have been making real threats. Not threats of violence, but threats to destroy 150 years of farming and ranching in Alberta, though Bill 6.

My first guest tonight is TheRebel.media's Gavin McInnes. We talk about Vogue magazine's fawning -- and sort of creepy -- photo spread with Justin Trudeau. What does it say about Trudeau's priorities and the image he's trying to project to the world?
McInnes says that Canadians elected "Zoolander" for prime minister so they have no right to be surprised. Our enemies, however, view this frivolity as a sign of weakness. He and I also talk about the Muslim refugees coming to Canada and the rest of the Western world -- Gavin's new video is about that topic.
Then security analyst John Thompson came on to discuss Canada's refugee screening process, such as it is. (TheRebel.media's Brian Lilley was told by authorities that not a single Syrian refugee has been turned away so far!)
Thompson says the Liberals are still trying to employ the outdated "soft power" tactics that were fashionable in the 1990s.
Like me, he questions the type of refugees being welcomed to Canada and the rest of the world -- some of whom have committed terrorist acts. (We've reported on what these refugees believe HERE -- a large number are actually against the war on ISIS!)
Finally, of course, I read some of our viewer mail, pro and con. Please leave a comment below, or contact me by email, Facebook or Twitter; I give out all the details at the end of every show.
Thanks for watching, and we'll see you again on Monday!
Trudeau’s Liberals MUST halt plans to bring in thousands of Syrian refugees until they can guarantee the safety of the Canadian people.
