Alberta: Conservative PACs are so successful, the NDP wants to muzzle them

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

 

Over the last 18 months, the conservative movement in Alberta has started doing something the left has been doing for decades: They're getting organized.

And that has the NDP government scared.

We have seen a proliferation of conservative third party advertisers in Alberta. You might hear them referred to as “political action committees” or PACs, and while not officially affiliated with a party, they exist to promote ideas or causes like liberty, small government, and conservative unity.

These groups, surviving on donations, serve as a counterbalance to the Alberta government's constant taxpayer funded socialist messaging and the activist public sector unions.

The "problem" is, conservative PACs are good at what they do on their shoestring budgets. This is prompting the NDP to enact legislation to limit their efficacy, well in advance of the next election.

Tonight, I'm speaking to the co-founder of one of these successful conservative PACs the government plans to crackdown on:

Prem Singh of Alberta Can't Wait joins me to talk about third party advertisers and Alberta politics.

This is a deflection to cover for the investigation into the mass deletion of NDP government emails.

Sorry – I meant “watch out!”

Watch our for the Alberta Party too. I think that’s where those jumping Rachel’s ship will flee, just like Karen McPherson, who I believe was sitting as an independent. Was it just a coincidence that she decided to go to the Alberta Party, just as Jason Kenney won the UCP leadership role? I think not!

- The idea that you can simply buy an election is somewhat misleading. It is promoted by special interests with deep pockets so they can buy influence during elections. As we saw in the last US election, Hillary spent $1.2 billion to lose her presidential bid. So if you have a bad leader with bad policies you can still be beaten no matter how much money you pour into it. If the NDP thinks they can win the election by limiting PACs in this way they are sadly mistaken.

- What the political establishment hat about these PACs is that they will hold the Conservative party to account. We see that leftists like to infiltrate conservative parties & rot them from the inside. Just look to Ontario to see this.

Indeed a good synopsis John Williams… And if Alberta shakes off its “one drunken night” and Saskatchewan and Manitoba hold fast, then maybe, just maybe,British Columbians will wake up to the inevitable “third time at the bat stupidity” that is the Horgan/Weaver Tango… Look at it this way – at least you are seeing the light at the end of the tunnel, unlike here in “Yes,I want to get punched in the nose yet again” B.C….

Notley and her party have to be destroyed and decimated but watch out for the socialist scumbags and their union buddies to closet themselves in the Liberal party of Alberta. In Ontario the big Union money abandoned the NDP and elected Wynne who is worse than any NDP communist.

The Alberta New Democrats are done. For once I am optimistic.
commented 2017-11-02 03:42:44 -0400
How fast Notley dig her own grave?

Just watch.

War is coming.

Be ready.

Looking forward to the conservatives getting back in in Alberta and righting the equilibrium of the universe. Hopefully Notley has preformed so well as an antiseptic and antithesis to rational government and the corrupt lazy conservatives of the Redford days when she added 8.3 billion to the paid in full budget of Ralph Klein, that right thinking,,debt eliminating Conservatives will be back in power in Alberta for the next 50 years always with an eye to the grass roots.

Hear, hear!

Roads were a nightmare in Edmonton tonight, our public sector union heavy ,socialist heavy, give me more taxes demanding hacks keep doing a pathetic job. So glad these clowns want more from us while not doing their basic functions that taxes are actually supposed to be for. Of course the Anthony Henday ring road was nice and clean some time before, that is done by a private company , not whiney lazy public sector twits.

Notley is so pathetic and obvious!
She is freaking and it is so clear that these new restrictions are designed to hobble conservatives and help the NDP. As Prem Singh says, they will work with what ever Notley throws at them. Regardless the NDP is toast.
