Another Notley crony rewarded with lucrative patronage appointment

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Another day, another crony NDP patronage appointment at the McDougall Centre.

Rachel Notley has appointed Chris O'Halloran to be the outreach manager at the Alberta Government's southern Alberta satellite office, the McDougall Centre.

We've got another Notley crony being rewarded with a cushy job at $140,000 per year in the bureaucracy. O'Halloran still is the NDP party president in Alberta and is the acting provincial secretary for the NDP. And he was an official with the United Food and Commercial Workers Union. They're the union that got substantial consultation with the NDP when drafting the farm unionization law, Bill 6.

But this is no surprise. McDougall Center is where Notley buddies get their taxpayer funded rewards for being loyal orange soldiers.

Marcella Munro is an anti pipeline activist from BC and she's now the director of stakeholder outreach and communications at the McDougall Centre. It's a $130,000 per year job and Notley gave it to someone who spent her career campaigning against Alberta.

Then there's Bob Hawkesworth, a failed NDP candidate who lost in a by-election to Wildrose's Prasad Panda. He was appointed to be the executive director of the McDougall Centre within 72 hours of his loss. It's a $150,000 per year job.

Rachel Notley used to rail against these kind of appointments when they were done by the PCs. But just like Animal Farm, a lot of things change when you move into the farmer's house and start wearing his clothes.

It’s easy for ND Pigs to keep spending, it’s a whole other ball game when they are actually govern for the province, not just union takers.

How do I become a pig? Do I have to lick my overlords toes?

The pillaging of Alberta by the NDP is BEYOND what even la Cosa Nostra could achieve. On a brighter note, Sheila, your coverage of this provincial apocalypse is impeccable. Keep it up!

This is known as Arse kissing, a form of gratitude often used in left wing politics. After seeing Notley’s face, I assume that she receives a lot of Butt Smuks, on both cheeks.

That is for sure . Communists used to be first cousins to the NDP. Now they are brothers with Justin and his minions.

Conservatives are not like communists, in any way, shape or form.
