HIGHLIGHTS: Save the Family Farm town hall in Red Deer

Rebel Staff

On Saturday, October 14, our Alberta Bureau Chief Sheila Gunn Reid hosted the first of a series of town hall meetings, for Albertans to speak out against the Trudeau Liberals' new tax plan.

Among other things, this plan will make it harder for families to pass farms down to their children. 

As part of our SaveTheFamilyFarm.ca campaign, we wanted to let those most effected by this tax plan speak their minds, and listen to speakers who oppose the plan and want to help fight it.

Here are some highlights from the first town hall, in Red Deer:

Drew Barnes is the United Conservative Party MLA from Cypress-Medicine Hat. A rancher and businessperson, he explains the impact of the Liberals’ out of touch tax plan.

Cory Litzenberger, a CPA and self-described “tax nerd”, explains how those who will be effected by these tax changes need to prepare.

Former Conservative MP and Agriculture Minister Gerry Ritz gave the keynote speech at the Save the Family Farm rallies in Alberta.

Here, Ritz says that among other things, the chores that farm kids do as a matter of course may have to be itemized to conform with Trudeau's new tax laws.

Correct you are Cathy, it would seem there is very little knowledge about Agenda 21 and it’s bastard twin Agenda 2030. I do my best to inform the younger crowd (under30) about the perils of there future but their eyes glaze over the smart phone fidget begins. Even those golf from the 50’s and 60’s vintage are surprisingly oblivious to this document. The UN Globalists are not even hiding this agenda but have started the slow infection of 5he populace with things like Iclei.. Search any of these on the web and including maps of the no go zones.

Highway robbery! It cannot last. The more taxes they demand, the better people get at paying none. Ask Italy.
He thinks he is going to pay for his ‘refugees’ off of our backs. We’ll see how long that lasts.

Thanks Rebel so much for posting these, I couldn’t make the event – Drew Barnes is a man with patriotic sentiments in alignment with mine. We cannot survive as a nation with governments who are hostile to our pioneering heritage from which the family farm and development of rural Canada evolved. Attacking family farms and businesses like this is another indication we have a government who does not represent Canadians

I wonder if the war the left is starting, has started, is an unintended consequence of their fiscal policies, or an intended consequence…

Good stuff.

Loved “Put down my dog” punch line and “heartless, spineless, and head interchangeable with the ass” punch line.

People have to wake up. This is all about the UN’s agenda 21. They do not want people to own any property (let alone own farms). They want people to live in cities, no cars etc and to eventually turn Canada into a 3rd world shit hole. What’s happening to Alberta farmers is very serious and dangerous. Look it up. It’s happening right now and this isn’t some lame conspiracy theory either. Look at Europe with the EU communist government. Cities across Canada are now implementing these UN ideas through local governments, our health care system is getting worse everyday, the death cult is booming etc. The UN must be dismantled now before we are all enslaved under it.
