Derek Fildebrandt: Defeating Notley With A Split Conservative Vote

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, Derek Fildebrant, Alberta MLA (Strathmore-Brooks) and Interim Leader of the Freedom Conservative Party of Alberta, joined me to explain how he plans to defeat Rachel Notley's NDP government without splitting the right-wing vote.

Derek and I agree that the NDP stands no chance of winning in rural Alberta, but seats in Calgary, Edmonton, Lethbridge, and the far-north remain in contention.

If two conservative parties are on the ballot, it could allow the NDP to squeak by thanks to a divided vote

WATCH my interview with Derek Fildebrandt to see how his party plans to avoid a vote-split by not running candidates in strategic ridings.

“We have to take those lapses …”

You can…. if you want to.

I think both Derek and Bernier are smart cookies and are calculating every step to ensure that the NDP and Liberal governments respectively, still get the boot. Making some headway into the game and some real change in the near future is the goal, without allowing those currently in power to stay. The circumstances look like they may accommodate that plan successfully. Just how successfully, only an election will tell. All I know is, it is the first time I have felt at all hopeful provincially for Alberta or federally, maybe ever.

Canadian Patriot, yes, Kenney has a globalist fetish, no doubt about it.

We have a few splinter Conservative Parties here in Canada..Just a suggestion..Maybe Bernier should be trying to bring them in on the same page, including close to half of the Conservatives?

trudeaus tactics are divide and conquer..hence his liberalist globalist moles he has in place.

Jamie MacMaster: Unfortunately, politicians – more often than not – have some history of “troubling ethical lapses”. We have to take those lapses and weigh them against the balance of probabilities that those lapses won’t negatively affect the population as a whole. Trump’s infidelity, Trudeau’s groping/ethics breaches, double dippers, etc. There are very few politicians who can claim purity.

“Fildebrant is a grass roots Albertan who has the best interests of Albertans at heart. "

Some sentences should start or end with a disclaimer: Troubling ethical lapses notwithstanding.

Agree entirely, Billy Howard. Fildebrant is a grass roots Albertan who has the best interests of Albertans at heart. Even without a win, as the official opposition, the Freedom Conservative Party will hold Globalist Jason Kenney to account. Albertans should vote FCP in each riding they run candidates in if they have any hope of restoring good government in Alberta.

Jason Kenney attends secretive Bilderberg meeting:

Now that is a losing strategy.

Staying away from ridings where the NDP is likely to win in a split vote on the “right” is smart policy and should result in a FCP opposition and NDP near wipe out.
Bernier should be adopting this strategy if he really cares about Canadians. The Bernier party has a chance to hold the balance of power in a CPC or LPC minority gov’t if he follows suit. Bernier is assuring another Lib majority if he splits conservative votes in many ridings.
For instance, Bernier should only run in all Atlantic ridings and some downtown ridings (where the CPC has little chance anyways, and his policies may resonate enough to elect a few MPs) and all Prairie rural ridings (where the Lib/NDP don’t have a chance and Bernier could steal from CPC). If Bernier does well in 2019, then maybe he can run a full slate in 2023.
