“Job one: Move to repeal the carbon tax”: Jason Kenney on his first acts if elected premier of Alberta

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

Jason Kenney is on the road in northern Alberta, campaigning for the leadership of the province's Progressive Conservative Party. He took time out to talk with me on last night's show, at some length.

I'm pessimistic about Alberta's future, given the damage the NDP has already done.

Kenney agrees with me that the Notley government's decision to "sue itself" has further undermined investor confidence at home and abroad.

He knows this because he's spoken to these investors personally, and what they've told him is sobering.

Kenney's message to people of good will in Alberta is:

"Help is on the way."

He lays out his first acts if elected premier in May 2019 in no uncertain terms.

Don't miss our full length conversation — and please share it, too!

Scott Evolution is a Hoax; a whole lot of nothing.

While I don’t like the NDP, and some below think we should some how dethrone/Impeach them. The blame should lay on the Conservatives and wild rose. The floor crossing was a sin in peoples eyes. And the ivory Tower the Premier was in was shocking, and then when Prentice basically called Albertan’s losers for the problems in Gov’t cause they voted for the Conservatives. They told him, he could kiss their voter card good buy. So while the NDP are as dumb pile of wood chips. its not their fault for getting elected. The sooner they go the better, but it was a good lesson. The People need to be respected. It has to be grass roots, and the Gov’t works for the people and People don’t like Gov’t trying to play fast and lose without regard for their will.

I like Jason. I agree with him. You shouldn’t have a carbon tax on Oil before it gets out the door. If you want to tax at the pump across the world, that is one thing, but a carbon tax by a province is stupidity.

So many offensive posts but mine got deleted. Did I touch a nerve Ezra?

Ezra, you do talk too much and don’t allow your guest to answer questions fully. Why not some pointed questions of Kenny based on his performance in Ottawa? He is an articulate and smart person who can take some heat and clarify where he stands. I’d sure like to get a better measure of his character.

Need new party name in Alberta, pc tainted, Wildrose tainted, need new leader, for me, Brian Jean does not come across and I am still disgusted what he did to Derek Fildebrand, his damn apologies to evil nutley for no reason. I can still remember in the last federal election, Brian Jean said “hold your noses and vote for Harper”. What a nasty, disgusting comment to say. There is also one time that I know of, maybe more where Brian Jean said he supported a carbon tax and it would have to stay to bring in more revenue to his government. Nothing said about cutting spending or the massive parasite bloated civil servants

ELAINE SCHABER, “Is there No way that we can dethrone this government?” If enough people would march on the legislature and tell them to get out.

Is there No way that we can dethrone this government? She needs to be impeached NOW
commented 2016-08-07 20:43:52 -0400
Uhh, Job One is being elected to do all these corrective measures and Kenny\s biggest hurtle is A) the reds in his PC party who rejects conservative leaders and B) The wild Rose who are not going to disappear and require vast incentive to either amalgamate with the PCs (unlikely) or share power in a coalition governing pact.

Oh ron boy, did i strike a nerve? Where do i start… all leftist regressive fucktards, you make false accusations, show where i said or implied violence. You can’t, so like all leftist regressive fucktards, you lied. Next, show me where i stated i support Jason Kenney, you cant. Now for the real explanation of your mental illness. You state that you have more education in your big toe than i have in my entire melon. Let me help explain this to you…….being educated and being smart are not the same thing. Your obviously not that smart. The claim of being educated explains every thing about you and your political leanings and living of the government tit. It is a case of the lights may be on but nobody is home. Finally….the only ones duped are those that believe parasites like notley and the ndp or truedope and the liberals are the best choices. You and your ilk are the fools, so ….no….you go fuck YOUR self.

Because of PC arrogance , The province is now saddle with a worst cancer. So Jason , you will never get my support on a PC Label. Look at Sask. There are no PC there, but there is a new Sask party

It is a colossal hoax and a terrible cost to the economy. To get to the truth google Maurice Strong, Agenda 21, IPCC, Club of Rome, and read Dr. Tim Ball’s book.

Shebel Raj…..valid point, i agree.

Anybody that calls this a CARBON tax—— is a liar.
commented 2016-08-06 22:13:58 -0400
It is a Carbon tax. Why does everybody support this lingo ? It is a tax on Carbon Dioxide- CO2 . We all breathe it out. Plants breathe it in. This is life. Why the hell do you cooperate with those that call it a Carbon Tax? How does a science teacher educate children about photosynthesis and then in the next breath-tell the children that they are destroying the Planet. At least—- could everyone just be honest and call it a Tax on CO2 ?
commented 2016-08-06 21:13:14 -0400
Once politicians taste the sweet flavor of easy money not many have retracted and rid society of any tax. I would love to imagine a world full of honest hard working politicians who would do everything in their power to make life a better place to be but I’m afraid they just don’t exist. Governments are being run like private industry and their god is profit, which they squander on themselves. We are presently living through a session of the most incompetent and unqualified series of politicians our Country, Province and Cities have ever seen and it’s kind of scary. Seemingly every project they lay their hands on turns instantly to disaster spending like drunken sailors in heat- the only difference being a drunken sailor spends his own money.

Oh…one more thing ron boy, Jason and Ezra have more intellect in their daily dumps than you could ever hope for in your entire life.

ron christensen…..explain to us all what the life of a leftist regressive fucktard is like on a daily basis. How often does your mommy make you pick up your pizza pop wrappers? Are you made to do your own laundry? Do you have to pay any rent?
Help us all understand you pathetic socialist.

Political Government, party politics, Federal, Provincial and even Local Governments have all failed. They can’t keep their hands out of the cookie jar. They have lost their sole purpose, that purpose of being PUBLIC SERVANTS. The whole system has been usurped by international foreign Globalist PIRATES. It cannot be fixed, the rot has gotten into the foundation and the whole damn thing needs to be torn down and rebuilt properly from SCRATCH, from the foundation up. The best thing that can happen to this current system of Government is a BULLDOZER.

I think 2019 is wayyyyy too long to wait how do we the peaple force a no confidence vote because we the peaple obviously have no confidence as for supporting the p.c government I want and Jason Kenny needs to develop a plan to keep the p.c partys corruption in check the last thing we need is another multi million dollar palace over the legislature or one of your exes during the tobacco companies PATHETIC !!!!!!!!!!

Notley & Trudeau both have to go. O’leary for PM & not sure for AB; either Brian Jean or Jason Kenney are by far better choices. I think North America should let TRUMP & O’LEARY take care of business. Notley is a Hillary Clinton clone. Don’t presume Jason will be the next Premier; but one hell of a better choice than what we have now.

Job 2 – Cancel the transfer payments and keep the federal tax for provincial use.

Job 3 – Charge all federal military bases rent.

Job 4 – refuse any additional islamics into the province.

Job 5 – Cancel the human rights kangaroo courts

Job 6 – Get rid of the RCMP and start a provincial police force.

A lot more but it is time to undo that idiot in Ottawa as well as the idiot running Alberta.

Anyone care to add a few more?

Yes but look at how everyone has got to start all over again? These Socialist Governments just keep doing that to citizens’ all over the world! You cannot go forward because the Leftist Authoritarians come and knock down our Sand Castle so that we have to start all over again from a Poverty level – we are never allowed to rise from what we already worked for – that is what makes Socialism Regressive they keep demanding that citizens be knocked down to Poverty level and than you waste your time Re-Building what you’ve previously already put effort into! It is so obvious how we are controlled!
I have lost faith in the whole dam system – if we don’t get rid of control by Plutocrat Cronyism and Socialism we will never have a life, we will never be free to work and climb to where we want to go! I am running out of time I am 66 years old, I was going along well under the Conservative Government and than this Islamic Trudeau convert came into power with his Far Left Agenda of Socialism and now my lifestyle and income earning ability has dropped considerably, and there are people like myself hit even much harder in Alberta!
Basically I’ve got to say I hate our system when a Government can come along that is so bad they can ruin your life for you, it is time to change the system, I am tired of having to put up with dictators who do not represent me run my families lives and capabilities!

We need a system whereby the people have more hands on the government that is supposed to be working for the people not against them!
Anarchism doesn’t mean anarchy it is a system of Government where the people Govern themselves not some highly paid Hoitie-Totities’ to dictate to them how to live their lives, what to spend taxes on whether they want to or not! The system works they have a version of it in Costa-Rica that works well!
Look up Josie Wells videos on to start off with to get an understanding how Self-Government works!
