How Notley NDP tried to squeeze $85M from beer consumers

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Court cases for two out of province breweries challenging the Alberta NDP’s unconstitutional beer taxes are about to be decided and something interesting has been revealed in court documents filed on May 12th.

These documents highlight a ministerial briefing note advising Finance Minister Ceci on the beer markup which shows that the NDP wanted to make $85M on this tax and that they knew they had to act immediately in order to make as much money from retailers and businesses as possible.

Watch as I show you what was in the briefing note.

This is yet again another NDP policy that works against Albertans and Canadians and not for them, regardless of what the Alberta NDP tell us.

The court decisions for both Steam Whistle and Great Western Brewery are being made late next week and I’ll update you on that outcome.

Whenever there is something unCanadian going down, like screwing with the power of your channel changer shaking down beer drinkers, or just sucking all the joy out of the few free pleasures we enjoy – there is always some commie behind it.

There must be a fraud/corruption/theft law somewhere on the books to bust these assholes with.

Gary Weibe, I don’t think there is a left wing government in existence today that does not think that the tax money is their personal purse to spend as they wish.

More often than not, these things are nothing more than a tax grab.
