Irony Alert: Nenshi lashes out at “Save Calgary” for shadowy tactics

Holly NicholasRebel Commentator

Mayor Nenshi isn’t too pleased with a new group called Save Calgary. That’s because the group is targeting him and four other city councillors in advance of October’s election. 

The targeted councillors include Druh Farrell, Evan Woolley, Gian-Carlo Carra and Diane Colley-Urquhart - notably all left leaning.

The group is headed up by Haydn Place who has ties to the Manning Centre and is also involved with Alberta Can’t Wait, a group that played a role in promoting conservative unity.

Watch as I fill you in on what the group is doing to bring awareness to the targeted councillors and the Mayor, who they see as failing candidates.

Highlighted issues include over-spending, and failing to work in the best interests of Calgarians, all legitimate concerns.

Nenshi is demanding that the group release the names of donors, claiming that by not doing so, Save Calgary are using shadowy tactics that Calgarians will see through.

But then again, Nenshi isn’t exactly a shining example of good behaviour as I’ve pointed out with examples like his fundraiser to pay his legal bills and a scheduled luncheon that he later cancelled after it raised ethical questions.

Then there was the Uber fiasco where he admitted that the city hired criminals to apply for jobs with the company.

Nenshi is thin-skinned and just doesn’t like that he’s being targeted for the questionable things he does as head of the City, so he’s lashing out like we’ve seen countless times in the past.

He claims to want transparency in election financing, but no transparency is needed when it comes to the criticism he’s aiming at Save Calgary because we can see right through him.

I agree with Julie, shine the spot light on the Midfield Park situation. And please summarize Nenshi’s legacy of being a bully with a big mouth, while in office. I want to know who contributed to his legal fund. Let’s make sure what he owes Calgarians for covering his lawsuit, is paid in full before he’s booted out in the election.

Drew, you’ve absolutely ruined cinnamon buns for me forever! (But you’re also right)

Well I for one have had just about enough of Mayor Nenshi. I do not feel he is representing Calgarians well at all. I hope we get Michelle Rempell, she would be a great champion for our city. I hope you do a story on the Midfield Park mobile home park situation. The souls of those suicide & stress related deaths are on Nenshi. Shame on him for not finding them a place to live as he agreed he would. He lied to those poor people & is now telling them to go live in a homeless shelter. Please shine a light on that story Holly, those poor people are losing hope & fast.

Sick of these elitist pigs who think their bowel movements smell like bakery fresh cinnamon rolls.

Funny how the people like Nenshi love to point their dirty fingers while they deflect form similar actions.
The BIG DIFFERENCE is that he is the Mayor and is on control of tax money, the Alberta Can’t Wait group is private and is not required to be accountable to anyone but their supporters.

Nensharia….Maybe they can hang him as an ornament on that new masterpiece art exhibit on the Calgary highway after he gets the cowboy boot up the hoop in the election.

HOLLY , I know you’ll keep on this As the election is a month and a half or so a way , maybe you could do some background on those traditional calgarians as BILL calls them , and on the other runners
Nenshi is highly irregular, he’s gotta go

Interesting development Holly. Nenshi is not “thin skinned” he’s an ego tripping narcissist and little else. Probably the worst Mayor Calgary has had.

He’s worried his public preening and virtue posing may be coming to an end with an impressive slate of Candidates and 2 very traditional Calgarians in the race who want to restore Calgary’s “greatest city on earth” spirit in the electorate and downsize city government.
He needs a wedge issue to fragment the vote between the candidates. He’s trying to play the victim card portraying himself as being the champion of the little people attacked by the big evil corporations.

What ever happens Farrel and Urquhart have to be put out to pasture at the commie martyrs old age home where their leftist age dementia can rest without further damaging Calgary.

Great report Holly, thank you.
Poor Nenshi, he is expected to answer to Calgarians, and, he knows whatever he delivers will fall short!
He needs to go.

This clown won his first election ONLY because of vote-splitting. We can’t afford to let this happen again.
commented 2017-08-31 18:36:01 -0400
Nenshi wants everyone else to play by the rules, but he’s allowed to break them as he sees fit. I hope we finally remove him from office!
commented 2017-08-31 18:27:28 -0400
While I am glad Levant is pouring his soul and energy into the much needed alternative media, it would have been interesting if he had remained Calgarian and challenged Nenshi for the mayor’s chair.

Good report as always Ms. Nicholas.
