Alberta teachers’ union meddling in “unite the right” effort

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator
 

If the Alberta Teachers’ Association (ATA) has their way, there’s a chance that the province could have another Alison Redford type in charge. 

The ATA plan seems to be to buy memberships in the Wildrose Party in order to influence the vote on unity.

You may recall that Redford was the surprise winner of the Progressive Conservative Party leadership contest in 2011. She became Premier in April 2012 only to step down in 2014 after a series of spending scandals.

Well, her surprise victory was made possible by the ATA, a union with tens of thousands of members who she made promises to in exchange for votes.

I'll show you a memo sent to Rockyview Local 35 by Annette Forer, chair of the political engagement committee, that hints at what's next.

The way to prevent another Redford situation is for conservatives to mobilize and vote especially in the Wildrose Party where 75 per cent of the membership must agree on unity.

The latest news is that there’s trouble in the party. President Jeff Callaway reports that a movement to vote no for unity unless Brian Jean gets out of the way, is gaining traction.

I don’t think it’s an accident that the ATA memo encouraged members to join the Wildrose because they saw the chink in the armour and wanted to capitalize on a divided party.

This is predictable behaviour from the ATA who claim success in influencing election results before.

I don’t know about you, but my idea of success certainly doesn’t include Alison Redford.

True. Just a few links of Canadian incidents, sadly there are a lot more online. The entire Canadian public sector needs a purging.

Gee, it is not enough that teachers work a job with great hours, lots of sick time, no weekends, way too many vacation, and get to boss little kids around. Now their corrupt union has to stick into politics.

Another reason to support charter and private schools.

Absolutely, David is right. Those carrying Wildrose membership cards as of the date the merger was agreed to should be the only ones who get to cast a vote; it should be a situation like a blackout on trading shares, pending completion of a restructuring.
Failing a successful vote to merge due to ATA tactics though, Wildrose and the PC’s should then deliberately set out to carve up the province and agree that each will vacate specified jurisdictions so there is ONLY a PC or a Wildrose opponent in each riding. The parties will have to consult (they would anyway, as a single unified party) but it may actually produce an overall stronger slate of small “c” conservative candidates, as there will be two pools of candidates to choose from. They can determine beforehand how to handle in the unlikely event there are as many PC’s as Wildrose members post election; and once elected, the parties can then become one big happy family by simply crossing the floor of the Legislature, apparently (hey if Danielle et al can do it, why can’t the PC’s / Wildrose do likewise, albeit on a bigger scale?)
The thing here is planning; if still separate parties, Jean and Kenney and all conservative candidates will have to deliver the same, consistent message, to be indistinguishable, to make clear a vote for Wildrose gets the voter the same results as does a vote for the PC, and vice versa. Make it impossible for the Non Democrats to get back in regardless of their bought and paid for acolytes. Or Alberta will be well and truly pooched for generations.
And hey, immediately raise the price of Wildrose and PC memberships. If the union is stupid enough to flood conservative coffers with membership money prior to the election only to find they got “schooled” after the election, then all the better.
Post the merger vote, you can once again offer memberships at a sale price….

Trust you to get what I said completely backwards. I said exactly the opposite of how your twisted socialist brain interpreted it. "

If it’s the complete opposite (that they can stand their ground on their home turf? ) then why does this trigger the rightists?

David White’s suggestion would sure fix that problem. You would think there would be some rule regarding interlopers. It needs to be addressed somehow.

Everyone concerned about this Libtard sabbatoge, please write the WRP @ connect@wildrose.ca
And express deep concern. Brian Jean said he wants to hear from Albertans in a note I got from the WRP.
It’s about time Alberta shuts down these Libtard unions – only lazy, ineffective, unqualified people make use of unions.
You never see unions in the patch, on farms (Alberta farmers will never be unionized – no matter what lunatic Nutley may say!) or where any serious work is being done.

Brian Jean and Jason Kenney had better address this now.

THANKS HOLLY
Maybe WILDROSE can come up with some security rules
DAVID WHITE has a good suggestion

The NDP saw how the Liberals infiltrated the CPC in efforts to get their favourite (Andrew Scheer) elected so they can assure themselves of victory in 2019. The NDP are just trying to do something similar in an effort to be re-elected as well (or at least not wiped out entirely).

Daryl said, “You lefty Libtards are contrarian to anything that even sounds rationally good &decent.”

You got that right!

They know that they cannot play by the rules and decency to win, so the lie and cheat.

I think it is LONG over due for some conservatives to infiltrate the ATA. But I have no doubt the ATA has some sort of Crips/Bloods gang ritual you have to do to prove your a true commie to the core.
commented 2017-06-15 14:53:02 -0400
Well maybe some vetting needs to be done on WRP memberships?
Eh, Andrew Stevie – what concerns us “right-wingers” is the absolute corruption & deception & sabatoge that you lefty Libtards are always using. You Libtards are always working on fuckin things up then blaming the right for your lunatic failures – well it’s gonna come to an abrupt end one day – we’ve had enough of your insane reasoning & sabatoge.
You lefty Libtards are contrarian to anything that even sounds rationally good &decent.
Libtards have a criminal mindset & it will come back to bite your far asses 1 day!

I used to respect teachers, but that was years, and years ago, when they actually taught children reading, writing and arithmetic. Now they just brainwash children, and shame them, if they don’t believe all the trash they spew.

They will likely get a huge raise from Notley for doing her bidding.

The ATA is a big bunch of Saul Alinsky Marxists.

Encourage all to buy Wildrose memberships. Only those who were members prior to the merger announcement should be allowed to vote on said leadership election.

Billy said, “As an individual with integrity, I would NEVER even think about joining the NDP in order to create an advantage for conservative parties. Never.”

Excellent point! … which just proves that many on the left do not have morals or principles, so anything and anyway they can destroy their political opponent is acceptable to those without ethics or a conscience.
commented 2017-06-15 12:13:24 -0400
The NDP and ATA brethren are destroyers of democracy.
How can anyone condone election manipulation through fraud and unethical behavior? (see DNC)
How is it right for leaders to ask their supporters and members to put their ethics and morals aside and PRETEND to be a conservative in order to manipulate situations that would benefit the alt-left?
As an individual with integrity, I would NEVER even think about joining the NDP in order to create an advantage for conservative parties. Never. It’s absolutely unethical and those who do this should look at themselves in the mirror. What a disgraceful lesson they’re teaching their children.
It’s sad fact that the NDP and union leaders promote immorality as a positive trait.

If the lefties are so convinced that their left wing policies are so superior to right wing policies then they should just left the right wing parties alone and let the people choose what party to support at election time.

The very fact that the left does their best to infiltrate right wing parties so as to sabotage them from the inside proves that they are afraid of right wing parties and the influence right wing has among the population of Canada.

I get so sick of the filthy immoral tactics of the left.

It made no sense that the membership of both parties was not frozen effective the announcement date of the memorandum of agreement between the two parties. It is these members that worked towards agreement, and to open the vote seems to open it to being corrupted as Holly mentions, but also disrespectful to the core support.
commented 2017-06-15 11:36:37 -0400
Thanks for the “heads up” Holly. I need to get the PC membership ASAP and am not sure who to write to or contact. I wonder if I should renew my Wildrose membership to avoid confusion also. We have to all jump on board and make sure that such militant socialists as the ATA membership does not get a foothold. I would like to see a law that curbs the political activism of Teachers in the province and makes it against the law to influence the minds of future voters. Teachers CAN teach a curriculum without their personal opinion being a part of that.
