On Saturday, I was privileged to join my Alberta colleagues along with Ezra and thousands of Albertans in Edmonton for the Rally for Alberta to stop Rachel Motley’s job killing carbon tax.
While it was good be at a rally where I didn’t have to look over my shoulder or be the recipient of vulgar profanities, it was also difficult to hear how tough things are in Alberta right now.
As tough as that was, it was great to hear how appreciative they are for the Rebel and even my work covering and exposing the nature of the highly organized professional protests in Vancouver.
It’s given me a sense of what exactly is on the line right now if these pipeline projects don’t get going and allow for some kind of economic uptick in Alberta.
Watch as I give you a glimpse of the crowds and speakers and also share the thoughts from a few attendees about whether the recent approval of the TransMountain expansion, gives them any hope that things might turn around.
