Failed NDP candidate defends Notley's Bill 6 by implying that farmers are entitled hypocrites

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Chris Noble is a failed NDP candidate and sometime folk musician from Airdrie. You know where this story is going already.

He took to his Facebook page this week in defence of the NDP's terrible farm safety legislation, Bill 6.

He said:

"Did you know that a large majority of family farms in Alberta got their first 160 acres of land for free from the government? ......Do you think that someone that has been given a free 160 acres of land should at least treat their employees with the same dignity and respect as every other industry in Alberta is required to?"


Besides being historically wrong, he's trying to paint those pesky, independent and conservative minded farmers as greedy. That’s the rhetoric the Soviets used on the Kulaks before they nationalized their farms.

I'm proud of the hard work my ancestors put in to the land and to building the communities we all live in. Their work should be celebrated. Not picked apart a century later by urban elitists.

Is there any wonder why the NDP went after the farmers under the guise of farm safety?

They think farmers are tight fisted and entitled. These NDP’ers think our grandparents, and great grandparents who lived in sod huts and turned the soil by hand to produce the food that feeds us all, never deserved the land they earned.

I disagree.

(NOTE: An earlier version of this article incorrectly stated that Chris Noble was from Red Deer. The correction has been made.)

Homesteaders got a little piece of land, cleared it and worked it. Do you want to know why some of the farmers acquired more land than their original homestead plot? Because most of the original homesteaders worked themselves to death trying to make the land viable. The survivors acquired the dead homesteaders land cheap when a lot of it became available. According to the NDP politicians new Bill 6 these people weren’t given anything, they should have been paid to work and develop the farms. The way I look at it the so called benevolent GOVERNMENT owes them(farmers) back pay, retroactive to when their ancestors started homesteading. These psychotic sycophants (politicians) need to be put in their place as the servants of the hard working people that they are supposed to be representing, not sucking on the public teet and whining for more taxes to pad their soft asses.

Free from the government? My grandfather worked his skin to the bone to clear his homestead. He also helped build the first roads into the area, maybe we should ask for a repayment for that? There is another rally at the leg grounds tomorrow Dec 3rd at noon. Please come out and try to put a stop to this terrible piece of legislation. There is a rumour floating about that several mla’s are ready to cross the line, lets give them an extra push.

We like free speech, it let’s us figure out who the morons are. Thankfully it’s not hard anymore. people like Chris Noble just can’t help themselves.

That’s the way to tell them, Sheila! Urbanites are clueless about the amount of physical labour that goes into farming, especially during the homesteading years! Agriculture is the “bread basket” of Canada, and to treat small family oriented farmers with such disrespect is outrageous! Having grown up on a family farm in Quebec, I am with you on this issue! Sock it to them!

Drew, interesting concept, good thing we’re not them.

Should have asked the horse in the trailer for it’s opinion. It was mugging big-time for the camera! :)

The only ones that are getting anything for free are those gross bloated unions, who need to be slapped back into their place. I think all unions should be audited annually, and tax free union dues need to go. I also, think that we should hire a private investigator and start following these corrupt union leads around, and find out what they are really up to. As if we don’t already know!

I wish all the farms in Alberta could afford to go on strike for a season, see how the commie idiots like that. They would learn food does not come from the grocery store originally like they think.
commented 2015-12-02 02:35:13 -0500
Does this clown mean they got free land when the other part of Canada kept taking all the fruits of that land? And sorry but these farmers went where lazy bums like you would never go and fed this country, oh sorry i guess food is not important tot life, those damn lazy farmers feeding us and all that.
Would love to take this twerp out for a full day of handling bails and other assorted hard work, he would last about 5 minutes.

Mike those videos seemed funnier 2 months ago until i had to live through the real life version lately. It is so sad that they are exactly what arguing with left is like.
Patriot i knew they would back off but we can’t this is all a part of there agenda 2 steps foward 1 back. Thats how creeping socialism works. Scare the populace with an outrageous demand and then act like you negotiate and are accomodating but get what you actually wanted. No retreat no surrender we must stop them dead we are the last bastion of real capitalism and democracy in
Canada we have no where else to go

Seems that things getting too hot for Notley. So hot that a mere 1,000 protesting farmers can force the government to apply considerable amendments to Bill 6. Maybe if the NDP had done what they promised to do in the first place, like present themselves to a open consultation process in advance of preparing legislation, there would not have been such an uproar. The public details of Bill 6 are poorly defined, so of course people are going to be pissed when they are run over with bad legislation. Didn’t he NDP complain about this sort of thing with the PCs?

Looks like the NDP spin campaign has blown apart, as has there firmness in driving this legislation forward. More amendments are coming, with will be the result of an open consultive process that the government previously denied.

At this point, I’d say that the NDP are on the ropes and looking at a short four year tenure in government. Time to start updating those resumes.

WILLIAM MCDONNELL, “I have asked Ezra if we can voluntarily give our e-mail address and pool them by region. This will help get people connected by e-mail who live in the same area”. I support your request. That should be relatively easy for The Rebel to do as we provide our addresses upon registering.

Logic does not work on the lefties have a lifetime of indoctrination from elementary school to university from the mainstream media to twitter. In their bubble the message is clear any dissent means you are a religious bigot racist backwards mysoginist donald trump wannabe. In the past month my attempts at intelligent debate have been met with name calling ,it’s like arguing with my 3 year old. Perhaps 1 out of 10 might see the truth but the true believes really believe in climate change and che guevara. We need to unite the right take back our province take back our schools universities and our churches. Protest now get active push back defend our liberty before its legislated away.

Sheila, thanks for giving this repugnant clued-out socialist, a failed NDP candidate and sometime folk musician, a history lesson! To entice immigrants, many of the Canada West posters made immigrants think that Canada West was an easy place to live. The immigrants would come, thinking they could start a farm quickly and get rich, only to come to Canada and nearly starve to death in the harsh winters. The land needed to be cleared of trees, tree stumps and rocks, and rocks………….

This guy is clearly an idiot, but to the people advocating violence against him? He lost, he has no power in government. You don’t get to “beat the crap out of this asshole”, as was said in the second comment,because he believes and said something stupid. We like free speech, it let’s us figure out who the morons are.

Keep up the fight, make the NDP back down on this one, but they’ve got 3.5 years to do what they will. They won them fair and square when the right split after Danielle tried to kill the party. Threatening violence won’t change their minds, it’ll just make you the equivalent of an ISIS terrorist…given that the definition of terrorist is one who uses violence to forward their political goals. Try using logic; when it’s plain as day even the middle lefty gets it.

By “workers” does he mean the kids who help on the farm? The ones that get property willed to them (and taxed)? Do you think he has ever been on a Family Farm?

If they did have to work that hard Maurice, we would never hear their gums flapping as much because they would be to tired to speak. One thing this government should be weary of is that there is a lot of people unemployed, and you know what they say…….. about idle hands…….

Thank you for that, Sheila. After WWII, my dad homesteaded land north of Edmonton. It was 160 acres of bush, which he cleared with axe, cross-cut saw and a team of horses. My mom did her share of the work too, even though she was pregnant at the time with my older sister, and had my two oldest sisters to take care of. I was born on that farm. I have no recollection of it as we moved when I was three. But the truth is, nobody (and that includes me) even knows HOW to work that hard anymore. If any of these Liberals were actually to experience the kind of hard work my parents and other farm families had to do every day, just to survive, they would consider it brutality and a violation of their human rights. Their perception of how the world actually works is so far removed from reality, I’m not even sure they’re from the same planet we are.

Amazing, simply amazing at how ignorant the NDP are. I never would have guess that they would stoop to such lows, but there they are. Setting the standard by which all others on the left can follow. The NDP are not a party for the working Canadian, they are not a party for the farm families, they are not the party for the business owner, either big or small. What they are, is a party for the fringe activists, government employees, welfare recipients, and fat cat union bosses and thugs.

This was on Chris Noble’s FB page:
“Sorry, this content isn’t available right now”
I was going to give him a piece of my mind…

Yes we need to revolt and it needs doing now, as there won’t be much left of Alberta in 4 years. Check it out – any other province which these scumbags ruled (similarly like Mao and Pol Pot oh and Hitler) was deep in debt and in an economic mess when they were done their reign of “terror” – so we must deal with these people as we would terrorists: get rid of them.
But, we can thank all those who sat on their fat asses election day, because “their vote wouldn’t count anyway” and allowed all those "new Kanadian fortune seekers – who where imports of the past 13 years or so. They came here to exploit our oil & resources – many of which never lived or spent here and their money was sent elsewhere in the world, Fort Mac comes to mind. Has anyone tried reasoning or debating with these criminals? They become aggressiv and debasing almost instantly – telling you that “it is only your opinion” and that you “are close minded.”
We need a referendum or a recall right away.
We have way too many wack jobs in the political arena right now to ignore whats happening. Where do we Albertans go when we become refugees???
commented 2015-12-01 19:59:02 -0500
bottom line these ndp socialist extremists have no intention to ‘govern’ as any right thinking rational human being would define the term. They want to destroy what has been built by generations of Albertans. To quote my late Dad, “it is time to shit or get off the pot”. Albertan’s either accept that it is time to take matters into our own hands, to which there is no guarantee of success, or, just ‘go along to get along’
As for me personally, I would choose to honor the example of my Alberta homesteading family, 4 generations before me. I would choose to take the uncertain path and work hard to build a better independent Alberta rather than take the easy path and become an indentured serf to a socialist totalitarian

The NDP is quickly eviscerating the Alberta economy. At the same time it is social engineering the Alberta society into some vague Utopianism where all is equally poor and the province is no better or richer than The Democratic Nation of Congo. You know, the country with an average annual income of $400.

The NDP can do a lot of damage with an out of control majority government. I hate to say it, but the only means to stop this government will be daily mass demonstrations, public disobedience, taking over the legislature, and (scary enough) a revolt against the government.

A bit off topic, but Peter Gunn! It was a great show with great theme music.
commented 2015-12-01 19:48:23 -0500
OK I’ll buy this C**k Sucker 160 acres in the Peace River country and he can go break the land like the homesteaders did then we’ll see how free he thinks it was
commented 2015-12-01 19:42:12 -0500
@william McDonnell – I could not agree more, we really need to get out and support these farmers. I work in the oil industry so these changes dont personally affect me but we must all realize their attack on our way of life will affect us all in the end. We need to have ezra add a forum on this site to start organizing ourselfs. The left has done a great job at organizing, we need to begin somewhere and therebel would be a great place to begin. Please send ezra and email and request a forum section of the site for community activism. When i get home i plan on joining the farmers and ranchers at their protests.

My gad thic Campus commie covern in Edmonton has No-F’ing-clue about farming, or industry, or economics for that matter – what kind of fairytale history is taught at commie martyrs high these days. Do these sniveling Alinsky brats even know that no one who works land is getting anything for free.

Here is a clique of pencil pushing unionists who have naver put a days work in in at any of the industries they presume to “represent” – if anything they have deep contempt for the working man – if it wasn’t so schizophrenic it’d be a joke.
