REVEALED: Calgary Mayor Nenshi is “taking favours and funding from the Rockefeller Foundation” (Guest host: Sheila Gunn Reid)

The city of Medicine Hat, Alberta is boycotting a conference in Quebec.

And Calgary's mayor Nenshi doesn't like it one bit.

Is it really any wonder that a mayor who's cozied up to the Rockefeller Foundation is looking down his smug nose at a municipality making a stand for Alberta's oil and gas jobs?

Here's the story:

Medicine Hat, Alberta is a city of about 65,000 people, located about three hours southeast of Calgary — but it is also located directly in my heart this week.

Medicine Hat city council voted unanimously to boycott the Federation of Canadian Municipalities conference in Quebec City, to be held on May 30.

Medicine Hat Mayor Ted Clugston said:

“In Medicine Hat, we just didn’t feel like we could spend our taxpayers’ money in a province that didn’t welcome us.

"We’re cutting and cutting and cutting and telling our employees that they take zero percent wage increases; we’re cutting how often we water the parks, and then all of a sudden for our citizens to see seven of us are flying to Quebec? Well, the optics of that perhaps aren’t the best either.”

Oil and gas have been part of Medicine Hat since before Alberta was Alberta. Today, assets and business partnerships in the oil and gas industry have resulted in a half a billion dollars in benefit to the city of Medicine Hat over the last 15 years.

But Calgary mayor Naheed Nenshi scolded Medicine Hat for boycotting the conference, saying,

"I always think a dialogue is better than taking your puck and going home".

Mayor Nenshi should be embarrassed that a much smaller city like Medicine Hat is taking a much bolder stand for Alberta than Calgary is. 

But Calgary's mayor has a bit of a habit of talking down to those who are standing up for the oil and gas sector.

What's behind that? Well, it might be hard to believe that the mayor of Canada's oil and gas capital is taking favors and funding from the Rockefeller Foundation, whose tar sands campaign has played a major part in the downturn in oil and gas and the land locking of Canada's resources.

But he is.

TONIGHT I'll show you what The Rebel discovered about Nenshi's Rockefeller Foundation connections, thanks to Freedom of Information requests we sent to Calgary City Hall.

For example, the Foundation gets a say in who Calgary will hire for their "Chief Resilience Officer" with the money Rockefeller is giving them. But there's a lot more, as I'll show you.

Does that put into a little better perspective why Nenshi was so peeved at Medicine Hat for doing the right thing for all Albertans?

NEXT: William McBeath of joins me to talk more about this.

“Edmonton is almost all federal civil servants, many of whom are Ontario transplants, and the rivalry which has always existed between Edmonton and Calgary led some to believe they could infiltrate Calgary as well. Over the last decade Calgary’s demographic has been changing because of eastern lefties coming to fill the multitude of new government jobs”

Well LIZA, from a generational perspective, EVERYONE in Alberta came from the east…even the Blackfoot….they just happened to find a bridge so they could enter from the west.

Urbanization is the thing that is killing the spirits of enterprise and self-sufficiency that built this Country. Urban living doesn’t require much in the way of independence because choices are made for you and your problems are solved by other people. And if you grow up in an environment where governments take care of a lot of your daily cares, then a government that offers to take on ALL of your daily cares is a vison of utopia. And this holds true whether you’re a 5th generation Edmontonian or Torontonian.

And even if you don’t get a government paycheque – if you operate a business in one of these Government Towns, if you have any brains at all you realize that you are better served by the continuation – indeed, the expansion – of BIG GOVERNMENT.

And out in Rural Alberta, things aren’t much different than they are here in Rural Ontario. The farm and livestock associations openly betray the interests of their memberships – who continue to accept it all with ovine docility. And the petroleum industry, represented by the likes of the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers, has had little to say as everyone gathered around to piss on Alberta. Hell, no one blocked a goddamned highway or plugged up the Legislature in protest.

- What a surprise, one of Canada’s most corrupt mayors is in the back pocket of the Rockefeller Foundation. The word “treason” comes to mind.

- Recycling is the ritual of the climate cult. We ship it to China & they dump it in the ocean – we ban plastic straws. We ship it to the Philippines & they send it back (at taxpayer expense). We’re not to question the viability of the program – to do so is to question the cult. The Olympics are a tremendous waste of time & money. I haven’t watched it in decades & I used to watch it all the time.

Everytime you hear some Albertan spouting off about separation, think of this: Alberta’s 2 largest cities – comprising 68 percent of the Province’s population – continually choose worms like Nenshi and Iverson.
Edmonton is almost all federal civil servants, many of whom are Ontario transplants, and the rivalry which has always existed between Edmonton and Calgary led some to believe they could infiltrate Calgary as well. Over the last decade Calgary’s demographic has been changing because of eastern lefties coming to fill the multitude of new government jobs Notley pulled out of her rear, and also immigrants who vote for who ever is handing them the most perks. Demographic’s really is everything, and will screw a country or Province over, in pretty short order.

Notley opened the gates to Alberta’s changing face. She was one of the biggest mistakes the province has ever made. Its been down hill ever since. Love him or hate him; its been downhill for Alberta since Ralph exited.
The heart of Alberta still beats strong and true, the rest of its ‘body’ has atrophied, but its not too late to rebuild. I love that province.

I was sort of making fun Keith. I called him a whore through the side door. ‘He is a Harlot. Now I could have called him a whore but didn’t’ (well yes I really did call him a whore).
So not really softening language at all. I’m really digging in and then twisting it.

LIZA ROSIE commented………………. I am trying to ‘soften’ my language.

Don’t do that Liza, lest you not be Liza anymore. There is only one thing worse than soft language……..Censorship??……Well maybe two things.

Nenshi won with the help of the Notley government. They strategically ran out of ballots in certain areas where Nenshi would not have won. Don’t underestimate the corruption within the system. I’ve never voted for that narcissistic lump that hates the citizens of Calgary. He’s a pompous bully and needs to be removed from office!
commented 2019-05-15 09:28:16 -0400
Edmonton is a big problem as we saw in the last provincial election,that city is a solid socialist state within the province. The entire province voted conservative more or less except Edmonton,they love the stupid socialist agenda!! So glad I moved out of there 13yrs ago,there is parts of that city that looks like little Somalia. Don Iveson is a globalist flake.

A lot of people did not turn out to vote in Calgary. He barley won. Also some poles ran out of ballots. No investigation. I did not vote for him, it is more important now than ever to vote.

“Chief Resilience Officer” sounds like the political officers the Soviets put on their nuclear submarines to observe and control the Captain and crew and report back to Moscow.
But really ? Nenshi didn’t ride into Calgary on a horse with the Cavalry and take over the city. Morons voted for him which makes the entire situation more intolerable.
Great reporting but how many will this message reach?

Correction – obviously meant to say “every time I see Stout Nenshi mentioned”
commented 2019-05-15 02:46:59 -0400
Why is it that every time if see Stout Nenshi mentioned I get eerie overtones of Sadiq Khan and the way he runs London?…

In our town here in SE Alberta, the town council voted themselves a raise because the federal government removed the tax free income for a portion of their salary. You know the tax free portion to 30% that no other working person is entitled to because…..well… know……their entitled to their entitlements. Municipal, provincial or federal….feeding at the trough has its perks!!

Well Gee Nenshi built his Library for 300 million….fanciest injection site in North America.

HYACINTH….. Yet the citizens continue to vote in the worst abusers of tax payers money to their counsels and worse, the mayors get re-elected as well……talk about low information voters.

“…both Calgary and Edmonton are sanctuary cities.. "

Interesting how this is never put to the people of the city to vote on but rather pushed in under whomever gets into the municipal office. The council then proceeds to ignore the people when they try to voice their concerns.
commented 2019-05-14 23:36:03 -0400
And of course because they are following the UN playbook,both Calgary and Edmonton are sanctuary cities-go figure!!
commented 2019-05-14 23:28:55 -0400
What Nenshie thinks he is entitled to is obscene. The pension payouts for retired Calgary city counsellors are more generous than Vancouver, Edmonton and Ottawa PUT TOGETHER? Did I hear that right?
commented 2019-05-14 23:21:03 -0400
Federation of Canadian Municipalities conference is a yearly meeting to further globalist UN agenda on the ground floor in our communities. Canadians need to pay attention to these mayors. They are all reading from the same playbook updated every year with the newest stupid idea. Kudos to Medicine Hat for passing. Throw foreign money out of our politics. The Rockefellers must be banned along with Soros and any other intruders into our business. Throw Nenshi out. He is just another disgraceful harlot servicing the elites. I could have said whore, but I am trying to ‘soften’ my language.

I feel sorry for Calgary with the triple whammy of Trudeau, Notley and Nenshi. Here’s hoping those days will soon be over. Notley is gone. May Trudeau and Neshi be next.

Calgarians must vote this Nenshi bum out! He’s bad for every tax-paying citizen in the city. Let’s let our Calgarian friends know that this Nenshi bum is spending the city into bankruptcy and getting bought off by anti-oil groups.

By scale of volume, this city recycling/garbage collection/tax scam looks like a real money maker. No wonder organized crime is so heavily into garbage and other waste!

I never liked the look of that oily little fat crook…

Nenshi is a globalist goof and Don Iveson the mayor of Edmonton is leg crossing fruitcake like his idol Trudeau!! Both these morons have been bought off.
commented 2019-05-14 21:11:58 -0400
Gregory Roberts, the mayor of Vancouver was also taking money from the Rockefeller foundation, as were both the leaders of NDP and Liberals in BC. It’s no big surprise to find out that Nenshi is on the take as well. You can be sure that the commie mayor in Edmonton, and a number of other politicians in this country are as well.
commented 2019-05-14 20:59:18 -0400
Thanks Sheila. I’d rather know about nenshi than Joe Biden. I knew he was a fraud from the start. But the media doesn’t. The truth hides in dark corners

Tommy will not be able to run for the MEP elections with a criminal trial hanging over his head. With these charges, Theresa May, no doubt on the EU’s orders, has effectively taken Tommy out of the race. In all probability the charges against Tommy will be dropped before the 4th of July. The MEP elections are this coming Thursday or the Thursday after, to the best of my knowledge.
