Derek Fildebrandt launches Alberta "Equality or Independence" campaign

Keean BexteRebel Contributor

It was a chilly morning out at the McDougall Center in Calgary, Alberta. We were not entirely sure what the press conference would be about, but MLA Derek Fildebrandt eventually came out and spoke to the media. 

I had my hunches; as you can see, the sign on the podium says, “Equality or Independence”.

There have been a lot of questions surrounding the future of Alberta in Confederation recently and we have yet to hear a response to this public outcry from the political establishment.

Derek Fildebrandt from the Freedom Conservative Party currently holds only one seat in the legislature — that's his own — and it will be interesting to see if these separatist (or “sovereigntist” undertones, as he calls them) help his poll numbers a little bit.

Read my entire post below and you’ll understand why I and many other people are supporters as well. I know it’s long but it is informative and there’s not too many literary errors in it so it’s quite easy to understand.

In spite of his flaws he hasn’t committed the ultimate sin yet… not yet… If I could speak as well as him that would be me up there pounding a drum for the province but I can’t, but I think I recognize something in an individual that knows he’s used up all his second chances and that’s what makes him dangerous to the status quo because he hasn’t got room left for a scandal.!! Go Derick.!!!

Well, I’ll say one thing, CHARRED REMAINS: Fildebrandt has at least one loyal supporter.

Sorry Jamie that should’ve read …

His poaching was hunting on unposted land… Nice play in words.. Left the scene of an accident yeah you’re right you shouldn’t of done that. As far as the apartment renting it wasn’t even illegal in fact many politicians have done it still do it and it’s still not illegal, he even claimed it on his taxes as well and gave the money back… he didn’t have to give the money back it wasn’t illegal but he did. No politicians ever give the money back. You make it sound like he stood in front of a judge for that. He didn’t because many politicians did the same thing just none of them will admit it now Get your facts straight Jamie..!! All ordinary stuff that happens every day. No strike no foul.

Now consider some politicians who is crimes affects hundreds of thousands of people if not millions for multiple generations.. where is the outrage for that… Where is the outrage for those who practice their indiscretions and they don’t even need to make an effort to hide them because they have enough money and influence to pay off everybody including the media to keep their story out of the light or send it out in a different light. Where is all the rage for the municipal politicians who lie cheat and raise your property taxes and vote themselves a raise at the same time.??
Everybody loved Ralph Klein… Ralph Klein was an asshole. Hated poor and crippled people and made no bones about it. Good ole St Ralph sold off all of our private utilities to his corporate buddies before he retired and convinced 99% of the population of Alberta that paying down the debt was more important than owning corporations that kept an even price for utilities. They could’ve payed down the debt with royalty money if they wanted but then there would be nothing left to steal… AGT no longer exists and we are now paying more for telephone service that the older people know about but the younger ones couldn’t because they never paid the difference in the bills that we have now with very creative service charges… Natural gas and electricity all come with a half a dozen attached service charges to it above and beyond the consumption of the resource. It was cheap and affordable and you only paid for what you used when northwestern utilities was the supplier for Alberta. His private corporate friends got unimaginably wealthy off the backs of the taxpayers of this province and there was no guarantees you took the reins over would not ever go back into debt… It was set up for corporate success and provincial failure at our expense.
Jason Kenney walked away from his tenure before it was complete in Ontario at the federal level abandoning his constituents there… Jason Kenney has a history as well but because he’s on the inside-ish the media leave him alone unless they need to make the game look real once in a while to keep the people sleeping. And don’t worry if Kenny gets elected he’ll be more interested in maintaining status quo so he can complete his obligation to his masters that sent him here to roll the wild rose out of the picture and keep the CPC party alive because it was dead, bankrupt, corrupt and over as in finished and that little grassroots party The wild Rose was going to grow to be such a thorn or wildly successful and they couldn’t have that happen. If you can keep an open mind and open eyes watch how they demonize him
( Derek Fildebrand ) and it will tell the whole story because they will attack him personally and not his platform out right.
Yes Derek has done a couple of stupid things but he’s also got the personality and the charisma along with the intelligence to be a good leader. He also knows that he’s used up any and all of his forgiveness in advance and anything he does from this point forward has to be perfect.
I could only wish that politicians were more guilty of personal crimes instead of seditious and treasonous behaviour resulting in consequences that affect the outcome of entire countries for generations to come.
This man despite his faults is the closest thing I’ve seen to an honest to God patriot concerned for his country/province more than he is about being ridiculed for his past .

“here’s every day crimes that people mistakenly do not realizing and then there is seditious behaviour that is practised by the political class..”

So, he poached, but he didn’t realize it was wrong?
He hit another vehicle, and he didn’t know he wasn’t supposed to drive away?
And he rented out the apartment that tax-payers paid for, but he didn’t know it was wrong?

Glenn and Jamie… Pay special attention to the post below this one from Liza.!!
commented 2018-12-21 19:08:32 -0500
Sounds good to me Derek. I may have to hop over the line from the Interior to join Alberta depending on how things pan out, but things cannot remain the same. As Derek pointed out the equalization payments are just a part of it. Its time for all provinces to have sovereignty and say regarding immigration as Quebec does or Western separation. In which case, good by Ottawa and good bloody riddance. Its going to be either one or the other. This bad marriage is too toxic to stay in. Change IS coming.
commented 2018-12-21 18:22:22 -0500
No spin… very plain English for everybody to understand… There’s every day crimes that people mistakenly do not realizing and then there is seditious behaviour that is practised by the political class..
Nothing that Derek did had a bearing on normal people’s lives unlike the treasonous political class and their efforts to ruin and enslave the middle class..
Once again No spin.!!

“As I see it we all make mistakes and his indiscretions are so small, in fact insignificant as compared to the white collar or professional crimes and the inhumanities as well as treasonous and seditious behaviour against the country and its people levied by our federal and provincial governments. The real bad politicians are the ones that passed laws to make their crimes legal and them selves untouchable.. Every politician everywhere has skeletons in their closet and it is their fondest hope that no light never passes on to the behaviours they are practising. Derek Fildebrandt is a good man and a patriot who happens to be in politics. There is not a politician out there that can attack his platform and they don’t like people that aren’t status quo. They will attack him mercilessly add a personal level because on a professional level and his platform is untouchable they know it and they’re scared.. Go Derek go”..!

“The Quebecers that voted for Trudeau are the pot heads, the immigrants and the anglophones, plus some old-age voters who have always voted Liberals since their grandfathers. "

Absolutely true, CAROLE. And you could toss federal gov’t workers and the queer crowd in as well.

Hundreds of anglo-Quebecers moved west across the provincial border into Glengarry County from the greater Montreal area over the last 40 years, largely because of Quebec’s language laws and to a lesser extent, for taxation reasons. The VAST majority of them revere turdo la first as some kind of a saint.

The Quebecers that voted for Trudeau are the pot heads, the immigrants and the anglophones, plus some old-age voters who have always voted Liberals since their grandfathers. Stop blaming all Quebecers for the demise of Alberta. May I remind you that you voted for the NDP last time. However, I understand the plight of Albertains and their perceived mistreatment by Ottawa and the Eastern provinces. It’s up to you to renegociate the terms and I wish you good luck. But I don’t believe Albertains will ever separate.

“…Those are just mistakes as a human being and the rent thing wasn’t even illegal… "

Hey, as long as you’d cut one of turdo’s or Red Raiche’s crew the same slack, spin it any way you want, CHARRED REMAINS.

Funny how the external threat of mass migration may bring the West and Quebec together.
commented 2018-12-21 12:08:26 -0500
It is interesting, the Liberals became the natural governing party of Canada by exploiting Quebec nationalism. They presented themselves as the only party that could keep Confederation together by controlling the separatists in Quebec. Now the Liberals are the party of the post-nationalist state and mass migration which brings them into direct conflict with the pur laine Quebecois. The Laurentian elite have overstepped.

You could probably add Saskatchewan into the mix, as well, especially if Boy Blunder gets another 4 years. While smaller than Alberta, economically and population wise, we are just as tired of paying more than our fair share to the east.
commented 2018-12-21 11:27:03 -0500
Good. That’s exactly what we need in Alberta. A chance to vote on Alberta independence. Kenny said he wouldn’t give Albertans a chance to vote on independence, so if you vote for the PC’s then all you’re doing is trading one set of jailers for another.

I am so on board with separation. Bring it on.
commented 2018-12-21 10:33:18 -0500
The last thing you want to do is split up Canada!
The status quo of the globalists running things in Canada is completely unacceptable!
I’m fairly certain you’ll eventually get the same criminals, traitors and scoundrels as has been running Canada.
So we’re between a rock and a hard place, and being pushed into a corner.

What the hell is a man supposed to do?

I know you guys in Alberta are angry with Quebec and with the way the Eastern Provinces have has kowtowed to Quebec at the expense of the west in order to keep Quebec in Confederation.
I have commented recently that I think PM Butts and his stooge are trying to take advantage of that anger by getting Alberta and Quebec in a pissing match in order to mobilize the Liberal base in Quebec. It is classic politics of division. Why else would our Dear Leader blame the demise of Energy East on Quebec when it was the radical environmentalism of he and PM Butts that killed it?
Here is the thing, a recent poll showed that a majority of Quebecers want Alberta crude. PM Butts and the Boy Blunder are full of it. Who knew?
Other points for consideration are that, under new management, Ontario is pro pipeline and even if a pipeline doesn’t go East a large number of the First Nations have jumped the Liberal Reservation and are promoting a pipeline to the BC coast. The polls are looking bad for the Liberals, but okay, Smilin’ Andy and Kenney don’t exactly make me feel all warm and fuzzy either.
commented 2018-12-21 07:10:13 -0500
And besides… None of those things that you claim were so bad affected any of the lives of main stream people going to work every day… The same cannot be said about the outright criminals in the CPC the Liberal party and especially the NDP and the horrific damage that they have done to this country at both the provincial and federal level .. compare that what affects negatively the lives of millions of people to an illegal deer or some rent that wasn’t even illegal.!! Let’s not make mountains out of mole hills .!!

James McMaster… Those are just mistakes as a human being and the rent thing wasn’t even illegal… The hunting violation was on poorly posted land and anyone could’ve made that mistake. I’ve almost had it happen to me. As I see it we all make mistakes and his indiscretions are so small, in fact insignificant as compared to the white collar or professional crimes and the inhumanities as well as treasonous and seditious behaviour against the country and its people levied by our federal and provincial governments.

And that 20 billion was not a cap… It’s what we pay a year to keep the central provinces in caviare.. I think it’s time that Ontario and Quebec paid for their own damn caviare and for the mistakes of this foppish moron that has been gifted to us as the result of political and voting inquality of the provinces in the west.. But I suppose anybody that’s been feeding off us this long wouldn’t want to see us leave either.

Glenn Craig said “What will Alberta sepratism acheive?.”
::-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:-:
Well Glenn… For starters we would achieve equal status with the province that you’re in right now… On top of which we would be able to direct the future of our province/country including immigration intake,a huge reduction if not an entire elimination of income tax as the result of oil royalties very similar to Dubai and Kuwait.. We would absolute control over our natural resources and utilities as well as the 20 billion yes billion dollars we have been extorted for every since Trudeau the first Felt that central Canada would be better off taking money away from the west rather than earning it honestly by development .!!
In fact the only provinces that wouldn’t benefit from Alberta reclaiming its independence are the ones that we have feeding off us and that happens to be Ontario and Quebec… Imagine what we could do with our own money and make the east develop their resources and work for a living .
Glenn… I ask you what is the advantage staying in confederation while being treated like a deplorable and extorted for money with no representation…

Have I said it before and won’t hesitate to say it again: Kenny and Scheer are another globalists, a softer variety of Trudeau. Putting either of them in power (at provincial or federal level) still means complete destruction of true Canadian values but instead of 4 years, as Trudeau would certainly do, it may get prolonged 8 to 10 years.
commented 2018-12-21 00:21:52 -0500
If Derek represented Alberta while negotiating with Trudeau and the Federal Liberals, what cards would he play. They hate your Oil so much that they would like it kept in the ground so why would they even talk to you? What else does Alberta have?
________________________________________________________________

Dirk Kanis 2hr ago is correct in saying a separate Alberta could put BC out of business. $500.00 road fee for every transport truck and railway car going through Alberta.
I don’t think they would join the US; there are still some anti-American feelings.
They could never be a separate Country as they have no one that could take a leadership role. No one like W A C Bennett or Ralph Kline.
