When The Rebel’s Alberta Bureau Chief Sheila Gunn Reid wrote her bestselling book about Rachel Notley’s NDP, she picked the perfect title: “The Destroyers.”
The biggest destroyer of all was Notley’s chief of staff: Toronto union lawyer and lobbyist Brian Topp.
Yesterday, Topp announced that he was moving back to Toronto — where he had never sold his home or uprooted his family. In other words, he never had any skin in the game in Alberta. (Just like many of the out of town NDP destroyers he’d hired to join him...)
And his replacement? John Heaney, another B.C. NDP anti-pipeline lobbyist, another loser from the 2013 NDP campaign.
Heaney is famous, or infamous, for falsely accusing Christy Clark, the B.C. premier, of taking a bribe.
But now he’ll get a massive salary, and hire more of his incompetent, ideological NDP mercenary friends.
And that’s all that matters, when you hate the province you live in, and laugh that you were able to kill 200,000 jobs, and they actually paid you for it.
That’s Brian Topp’s legacy. And John Heaney’s legacy. Rachel Notley agreed to it.
And the mainstream media loved every moment of it, and will until the bitter end...
