Alberta NDP meddling in municipal politics while economy suffers: Hang on to your wallets if this candidate wins Edmonton!

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

The NDP are back doing what they do: campaigning for others while the Alberta economy continues to be the flaming dumpster fire of Confederation.

During the Federal election Alberta bled jobs all summer. Jobs Minister at the time, Lori Sigurdson was in BC campaigning for an anti-Alberta candidate. This time, the NDP are campaigning with their new favourite municipal candidate, Nav Kaur. Ms. Kaur is hoping to win the seat on Edmonton City council vacated by Amarjeet Sohi when he decided to cut and run for the Federal Liberals.

Over the weekend, Kaur held a campaign fundraiser that featured Shannon Phillips. Phillips is the Alberta Environment Minister. For $100 per plate, you could eat dinner and listen to the Minister presumably opine about girl power in politics. Kaur has also secured the endorsement of NDP MLA and raging Chavez fan boy, Rod Loyola. Remember Loyola? He wants to raise oil royalties to 60%.

I don’t know about you, but that tells me a lot about Ms. Kaur. I'd be hanging onto my wallet if she's elected the next city councillor for Edmonton's Ward 12.

The NDP, before they tasted power, hated this sort of cross governmental meddling.

In 2012, when the Alberta Government's Asian Envoy Gary Mar sold access to himself as a way to pay off his debt from his PC leadership run, the NDP were outraged. The NDP leader at the time, Brian Mason, said "I think that the most important principle here is that you don't trade on government jobs to raise money for political parties." Now that Mason is the NDP Government House leader, he's quiet about the perception of power peddling. Funny how that happens.

The old NDP understood that you can't use your government position as a fundraising tool. Today's NDP don’t think the rules apply to them.

This is no different than PM Trudeau campaigning today with “The wicked witch” Wynne today in Whitby for a Liberal candidate.

Edmonton is a non productive basket case, there is more productivity in Wetaskiwin than GEA. Government is the prime industry and employer in Edmonchuck , so I’m never surprised when it’s council takes on members who want to expand government.

Edmonton is the capital of communism in Alberta.

Where the hell do socialists think money comes from? I am sure they think they can tax someone 110% of what they make.

Outstanding Sheila.

The media party can hate spew a seasoned economist out of office and replace him with a camp counselor.

It’s time to report on assholes and how much of a bunch of psycho pigs Notley and her NDP filth really are.

NDP are truly disgusting… they are actually a pan-Canadian socialist movement… classic example is Burnaby BC where NDP is 100% in control of city hall, not a single opposition member and the NDP mayor’s wife is the NDP provincial MLA. NDP mayor was the one who actually nominated the NDP candidate for the last federal election… all three levels of government, city, province and federal, the NDP are in campaign mode for each other, all day, every day. Burnaby NDP MP K Stewart has not even got around to clean up his election signs yet but he flew back to BC last weekend to knock on doors in areas outside of his jurisdiction to campaign in-person with two NDP candidates on a provincial by-election. NDP operates like a cult.
