Hawkesworth appointment shows Notley's NDP only good at getting jobs for their friends, not regular Albertans

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Bob Hawkesworth, failed NDP candidate, got a  plum patronage appointment over the weekend.

He was appointed to run the MacDougall Center. The MacDougall center is the Alberta Government's Southern Alberta Office. It's supposed to be non partisan not a soft feather bed for friends of the NDP to "fail" into. But here we have Hawkesworth, a man who was an NDP candidate twice this year, getting the cushy job in the bureaucracy on a Saturday morning.

This sounds a lot like the cronyism that Albertans thought they'd voted out when they finally booted the Progressive Conservatives out of office. Appointing Hawkesworth is the sort of golden handshake the former PC government was famous for. But it took the PC's four decades to get to this level of cronyism. Rachel Notley's NDP has invented turbo cronyism!

The only job creation program the NDP has authored so far is the one that gives patronage appointments to friends and partisans.

The NDP budget is a disaster. Over 50,000 are out of work. Investment is fleeing the province.
SIGN THE PETITION to tell Rachel Notley stop her war on Alberta oil and gas jobs:

"The People's Republic of Alberta":
Tell Notley and her NDP how you feel with this t-shirt and hat design

I think Rachel is abusing steroids, how else can anyone explain how utterly clueless and immature she is!

“Turbo Cronyism” LOL
I mean the coined phrase is funny, not the reality behind it…

Come on now Alberta entrepreneurs!… I am still waiting for one of you to produce THE NOTLEY catcher’s mitt so I can send one to my grandson for Christmas!…

Wow, and we thought Redford was bad. Notley makes Red’s government look like the good old days. So tragic.

When will the masses be stirred up enough to revolt? When they start attacking our property rights . More agenda 21 bullshit. Plus Justin signing the UN ‘s weapons crap, that also means a total gun ban for the unwashed masses. It’s all coming together for the globalists, they have Canada all lubed and ready and now they are waiting for Hillary to get elected and all the puzzle pieces are put together. With Europe on the verge of collapse it’s happening a lot faster than I would ever realized.

PC’s doing this is cronyism, NDP doing this is the government of the people LMAO

Excellent video Sheila Gunn Reid. The hypocracy of politicians truly knows no bounds. Wait til the Lieberals really get going in ottawastan. Pretty sad. Only 3.5 years to go for Alta before you can 86 ’em.

Read Mark Styne’s book.“A Disgrace to the Proffession” in which he illustrates how faulty the global warming science is.
Alberta is being hijacked by UN Agenda 21 bullshit and real people are and will feel real pain thanks to Notely and her comrades at the Tide Foundation.

You know the old saying (equality for the masses) this only applies if you are ndp.

Rachel Notley is paid off NDP scum by Russia and Saudi to block oil from leaving Alberta and going to China.

This way, Russia and Saudi can export their oil to China and Canada can stand on the street corner and watch.

Four years of selling heaven and delivering hell – that’s what you can expect from Notley.

Hey Rachel, Bob lost the by-election! Why are you giving him this position, when he couldn’t even win a by-election??? You Rachel, are a joke of a premier!

They stick together, like the proverbial sht to a blanket. Commie Bar Stewards.
