Notley visited D.C. to “promote Alberta’s oil sands” — but hear what she REALLY said about pipelines

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Alberta Premier Rachel Notley just went down to Washington, D.C., to pitch the oilsands. But Obama announced his rejection of the Keystone XL pipeline shortly after Justin Trudeau was elected. So there’s not really a lot to talk about. 

What counts are the Canadian pipeline proposals: two in B.C., and one to New Brunswick.

Of course, Ontario, Quebec and B.C. are opposing them (even though they have no constitutional right to do so) because their premiers get votes at home for such posturing.

The Northern Gateway pipeline has been approved. So why won’t Notley challenge the fake objections of Christy Clark, Kathleen Wynne or Phillipe Couillard?

Because she just doesn’t want to.

Rachel Notley will fight the oil patch, farmers and ranchers. She’ll even fight against our little company, The Rebel.media. But not these premiers.

She’s pretending to sell pipelines to the country and the world, but she’s not even trying. The only use Rachel Notley has for oil is to tax it...

NEXT: We're leading a boycott of Earls Restaurants because, as we've told you, they've insulted Alberta cattle ranchers by no longer purchasing their beef.

Derek Fildebrandt, the Wildrose Shadow Minister of Finance, talks to me about his personal protest:

He's vowing to eat Alberta beef for seven days straight!

It's a fun story, but we have a serious conversation about boycotts in general, "ketchup patriotism," ethical oil and lots more.

THEN: Aaron Wudrick, the Ottawa director of the Canadian Taxpayers Federation, joins me to discuss Bombardier's latest arrogant taxpayer shakedown -- even after getting a lucrative contract from Delta.

You won't believe this insane story.

FINALLY: Your messages, emails and tweets to me, reacting to some of our big stories last week: The Earls boycott, John Kerry's greedy "green" hypocrisy and more.

Notley has taken away my ability to feed my family and pay my taxes. I will loose my house this year. When all is lost, people become desperate. I wonder what might happen if 20 or 30 people that feel as I do were to get together to put a permanent stop to this bullshit.

Let’s presume that a very conservative government was in power and decided to unilaterally take something the socialist NDP value , say cutting social assistance by 50%. Not one minute , in fact not thirty seconds would pass before protestors would be in the streets, the media ablaze with stories about Nazis , the legislature shut down by angry mobs, children starving on street corners, old women throwing themselves in front of rolling locomotives to avoid eviction from their homes.
Now let a Left wing socialist government destroy an entire industry ,create massive unemployment and debt and our response as conservatives is blah blah blah .blah blah blah.
Protest anyone?

Notley is a loon in a den of loons . . . sad for Alberta and going to be sadder for all of Canada.

Why is Notley not here in Alberta building refineries to refine are oil! We have Premier that hates Alberta and its people. I guess that’s okay, she fits in with the rest of Canada.
