Alberta Energy Minister Margaret McCuaig-Boyd: A liar and a disgrace

Rebel Staff

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'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. ('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Thompson says the Liberals are still trying to employ the outdated "soft power" tactics that were fashionable in the 1990s.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.

Believe that Muslim face coverings have no place in Canada?

Her eyes and face aren’t red, I don’t see any tears she’s faking. Didn’t Winnipeg’s mayor (a man) break down crying at a public event too? I think it was because he said Winnipeg was the most racist place in Canada. Death threats, what do they expect? What a load of Sh@! Have you ever been in a fight face to face and tell the guy he’s Fu@#$% Dead or he says it to you? That’s real life, you are standing in front of him and it’s going down. A computer screen can’t jump out and grab you. How old is this person? 12 year old girls can’t govern, how many NDP members are under 20? This is a Friggin joke! Women are not wired for government, but they seem to be even more Dictatorish and Corrupt. Typical woman victim when criticized.

WAAAHHHH, my elitist feelings are hurt.

ezra left ant – and your mind is full of Liberal lies and deception, and just wait until the violence is unstoppable, due to our man-child leader, who is an evil spoilt trust fund kid, who thinks that Canada belongs to him and his party of fools. Canada belongs to us, not the Liberal party of Canada, and I’m sure they will find that out soon enough.

Your page is littered with threats of violence.

Here’s a good place to start if you wish to examine bill 6 with a more educated point of view. Robert Shiller is a great mind as he likes to examine the facts of a matter and look at all the benefits, problems, etc, and then draw his conclusions/opinions. Insurance can be a great tool to improve the welfare of it’s participants. Worker’s insurance is far from being new and for decades we’ve observed the mass benefits it provides to society. What makes you think farm employers will be any different from employers in hundreds of other industries who reap the benefits of worker’s insurance. Did those other lines of business go bankrupt? No! What makes you think the result will be any different this time? Are farm owners leveraged to the tilt such that they cannot afford insurance premiums? Is it possible that such insurance premiums will cause the welfare of the farmers around Alberta to increase? Absolutely yes!
As Robert Shiller might ask, whose going to force accountability on farm owners?
The rest of the other videos in the course I’ve linked are great as well (although a tad bit elementary).

I saw a movie where they say “There is no crying in baseball”.
I would definitely say there should be no crying in the legislature. I did not see Liepert standing before all the other MLA’s and cry like a baby.
She is totally unqualified for her post and is an embarrassment to all of Alberta.
She does not represent the industry and only serves as an obstacle to growth in Alberta.

The death threats against the NDP, Notley in particular, are unprecedented in this province’s history and are a matter of record. While I’m no fan of any political party whatsoever, I find it disgusting that Levant is deflecting this issue and digging up a trivial anecdote to smear a member of the cabinet, as if he’s endorsing all the attacks that have taken place. What makes me even sicker is the peanut gallery here seems to support this by saying politicians should be able to take this criticism. I’ve got news for you, this is not criticism, it’s flat out abuse and should not be tolerated by anyone regardless of who’s in power. Anyone who disagrees is either a willing participant or one of those idiots standing around while enjoying a gangrape like it’s a carnival ride!

The author of this is extremely far removed from reality. Please stop putting your poisonous ideas and misaligned ways of thinking out into cyberspace. Do us a favor and study what it is to be human, how to achieve this, how to compound wisdom and have the patience to look deeply at all sides of a matter before forming an opinion on something.

Your writing tells me that you’ve learned composition, but you haven’t learned how to think. This makes me think that you do not have honest intentions through your work. If you honestly believe the words you say, and if you honestly believe they convey a good message, then please, seek help. Seek wisdom from others. Read and study on your own time until you are capable of formulating thought provoking prose that can point people in the right direction, not towards the direction of death.

(Sorry about sounding hypocritical), but I’m basing this opinion simply on this one article. This is the first of your works I’ve seen and maybe this is an unfair assessment of you, but this is the kind of article that is typical of a ridiculous madman though, so I have no desire to check any more of your work to see if the case actually is otherwise.

Please, I beg you, think about the atrocious reputation you’re making for yourself before you type or say another word. You pander to a certain audience via words that fit in with how they’ve emotionally responded to a certain situation, painting the picture of a world that doesn’t actually exist and furthering that emotional response. An alternative (and far better) method is to create writings and works which draw people to a better way of thinking or acting by simply expressing the truth (as much as it can be conveyed) about something. There’s never any right answer as to how an issue should be resolved, but often enough you can find an underlying truth behind any issue which leads you in the right direction. Thus far, you do not do this. You lead people in the direction of death.

The truth may be hard, my friend, but you should at least try.

McCuaig Boyd. What a blubbering phony. Ugh, what a bloody mess we’re in.

Great show Ezra. Love it when Gavin chimes in…one of the very few with the balls to tell the truth.

On the government of Alberta climate change web site, there are some testimonials from the supporters of comrade Notleys global warming solutions policies. Of note, 65% state owned EDF France, and Spanish owned Acciona. European conglomerates into nuclear, solar, and wind salivating at the prospect of billions of Canadian tax dollars to help bail them out of their failed green business models. Obviously endorsed by the UN’s very own comrade Notley and the Toronto connection. Keep digging that hole, comrade.

It was the stupid slavering pig ignorant Canadian people majority that elected these self important creeps.
We have no one to blame but ourselves. We deserve everything we have coming to us. Stupid, stupid, stupid!!!

Look on the bright side. By this time next year, the Alberta NDP will get to brag that the province is now receiving transfer payments from the rest of canada.

I can’t wait for the day that Newfoundland or Quebec has to fork over money to Alberta.

It is my hope she wakes up to find a driveway full of cow manure – to show the displeasure of the people she refuses to represent.

Cyber bullied?

Give me a break.

I have a strong suspicion it will get far worse.

And rightfully so.

No sympathy here.
commented 2015-12-13 16:28:11 -0500
The NDP deserve everything they get, and more. They are crashing our economy on purpose for their own gain. I have no sympathy at all for them. If you don’t like the heat, then get lost, and step down! I don’t respect anyone that cries like a baby when they are getting paid the big bucks, to do the job for all the people, not just the union stooges, or for the UN.

Who’s “fear mongering” here ?
Take a pill.
commented 2015-12-13 10:04:01 -0500
Ezra, I have mot make a small but important correction in your statement about politicians “betraying” constituents by choosing party line over constituent will – Let’s be honest here, as long as thre is a government whip and non confidence voting, simply being a party member is a declaration of loyalty to partisan lines rather than constituent will – if she truly believed in responsive democratic representation she would have run as an independent so she never has to have a voting conflict between party and constituent.

I have advocated the abolition of the party system for years because of this very fundamental conflict with responsible democracy (no, just removing “whipped votes” wont remove the coercion or corruption of oarty politics). With a house if independent MPPs or MPs the whole house will elect a Primier or PM (or it could be put to the voter as a separate off-set election like it is in the US)

As for politicians lying, Ezra, Lying is a prerequisite of the job and a base line skill of the political craft -which is why I have always been against electing “politicians” ( career bureaucrats) as opposed to electing “statesmen” (publicly spirited citizens who want to serve the nation for a short term)
commented 2015-12-13 06:16:14 -0500

Hey, why are you so quiet about those death threats being made against the premier? Now THAT is something worth writing about. Oh, too busy fearmongering about refugees.
