Fire Phillips billboard is up to tell the TRUTH about Alberta’s lying Environment Minister

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

It’s finally here. The big, beautiful Fire Phillips billboard has made its world debut!

Albertans just can't trust Environment Minister Shannon Phillips.

Phillips said those opposed to her Bighorn Wilderness Park had been making threats against its supporters. She also said she'd been advised by the RCMP to end public consultations and that two investigations had been opened into the alleged crimes.

Except the police said none of that was true. Phillips just wanted to shut up locals who were showing up at her sham consultations to tell her they didn’t want, or need, the government to tell them how to take care of their own backyard.

Shannon Phillips is a liar and now she's a liar with her face on a billboard on the side of Highway 2, just south of Leduc, Alberta. The billboard, generously funded by Rebel supporters, will greet those leaving the Edmonton area to use the Bighorn backcountry while we still can.

Today's video was a cold one to shoot but I could barely contain my excitement as the banner was unfurled. Someone even stopped on the side of Highway 2 to take a picture of our banner before we even had it up!

Thanks again to all the donors who helped make this happen.

P.S.S. The last time we put up a billboard calling on Rachel Notley to fire one of her incompetent cabinet ministers (Education Minister David Eggen) she sent the Elections Commissioner after us. We were fined, without a day in court, for putting up a billboard without first registering as a third-party advertiser. We’re not a third-party advertiser. We're journalists with an editorial opinion, so we’re fighting the legitimacy of that censorship law. But more importantly, we’re still exercising our free speech whether Notley likes it or not.

William Kay the NDP changed the law for control , and in the case of the previous billboard-THE REBEL IS NOT A PAC because the NDP says so.

William Kay if this is advertising then so is a bumper sticker and a sign on your lawn. And yeah the law is tyrannical as the government can simply deny registration to those that do not report or say what they want them to. That is what dictators do.

Are you suggesting that laws regulating third party advertising are inherently unconstitutional?

No one can trust any of this Liberal government under Jihadi Justine .

William Kay they have every right to do so. You are not very smart.

I also didn’t think The Rebel would go through with the Billboard-sign. Why keep shooting a dead horse when there are only a few months left until we will likely never see the NDP in Alberta for 20 years.

If they sue you or take you down, it will surely look like you made a terrible decision, especially with so many lively targets in Ottawa.

Wow! I did not think you guys would go through with this. I guess the thinking is that the commissioner is so incompetent and the NDP’s tenure is so limited that you might slip by.

[….]Too close to the coldest six weeks on record…..

Greece is covered in snow and reporting that they have the coldest winter on record
Britain so far has had more snow than ever and record low temperatures.
Could this have anything to do with Global Warming by any chance.

Good job with the Billboard Sheila, the message is getting out.

94 days with no sign of a hammer falling.

She will be fired sometime in the next year.

One thing that can be guaranteed is the election writ will not be dropped in March. Too close to the coldest six weeks on record due to an inactive, billiard ball, sun. That makes it hard to fight an election having to support the carbon extortion Philips sponsored.

But Philips will be fired, along with Eggen, Boyd, etc.

Thankfully, the NDP caucus does not have a tenth of the ability or intelligence of Notley. Otherwise firing would not be a logical possibility.

Yet, do not take it for granted. Notley is an intelligent person with ability.

She tried intimidation threw the RCMP to shut down opposition isnt that against the law to report a false crime ?
