Q & A: Kenney leaves federal politics to “rebuild the conservative family in Alberta”

Brian LilleyArchive

After 19 years as an MP, Jason Kenney is leaving federal politics to run for the leadership of the Alberta PC’s.

Watch as we discuss his fondest memories, greatest accomplishments and the principles and convictions still with him after twenty years in politics, that he’s looking to take into Alberta now.

Interesting interview. However, I found it lacking in Kenney’s thoughts about the socialists, like Jansen, who really control the P/C’s. Also thoughts about Jean, who is performing a good rear guard offensive. I like Kenney but Jean has my greater respect. Also, I remember the last great ‘white hope’ for the P/C’s from the Harper cabinet, Prentice; except I do think that Kenney has morals and guiding beliefs.

Hey Jason! Show you’re worthy of consideration. Repeat after me: “This climate change horseshit is killing us”.

No, eh? Didn’t think so.

I’m sure they have all done a lot of soul-searching before abandoning their post and leaving their constituents to seek a better position for themselves.
“It’s called risk versus reward”
And there is no justifying it.

He also left (quit on them) his constituents at the federal level to seek a self-serving opportunity here… He should’ve finished his term and this is indicative to his character and the PC party..
Only partisan politics will save Alberta. even better if he was somebody that was born here and had family buried here for a few generations.

KENNY is going to succeed he is what we need in alberta. Already he is making a difference the NDP and PC (liberal in disguise ) parties are running scared. Most of the ndp will more than likely not even run again, the damage they will have done by then will be to great.

Will I hope Kenny can merge the right and make it a dynasty government in Alberta again – I intend to retire here and will NOT if I have to put up with globalist deconstruction and demoralization. I’d rather retire in the western US than watch my beloved Alberta descend into the cesspool Ontario has become.

The PC’s are just slow motion NDP. Why would Kenny want to rebuild that. He’s been in Ottawa so long that I don’t think he knows what’s going on.

I agree with most of the posters,“The PC’s are a rotten liberal party in pc clothing”. I have no intention of ever voting for the Alberta PC party again! I have not for the last 2 elections. I like Jason Kenney, but I will never vote for a PC party with the MLA’s and leadership they have, they are all in love with the village idiot, small potato!

Since PM Harper left the conservative party has been in disarray. Stepping down may seem like he’s leaving his post, but he’s likely done a lot of soul searching, and has decided to try and assist the right in AB. I think if he wins the leadership, he will work with the WR party, and form a stronger conservative party. He will need to weed out the liberals, who are masquerading as conservatives, before the next election. They have been squealing like pigs because they want to keep conservatives out of power. We see what happens when those with an agenda take power. They truly hate freedom, and wish to destroy anything and everything that real freedom provides. I wish him the best. And if he isn’t able to run for the PC party, I hope that he runs for the mayor of Calgary, and unseats that narcissistic spendaholic Nenshi. That albatross has to go!

Ken, his plan is to attempt to unify the two parties before the next provincial election.

It was vote-splitting that got us into this mess in the first place. We CANNOT let it happen again. Egos must be set aside and compromises made.

Alberta won’t survive another term of borrow, tax, spend under the Notley and Dummies Party.

If you are in alberta voting for anyone other than the wildrose is the same as voting ndp and that includes voting pc.

LEVITICUS 2013… quote “the epitome of an opportunist” rings a bell with me and, Hell, I live in British Columbia!… He’s going to have to get a lot more “fire in the belly” sounding in the coming months to rectify Alberta’s ills, where one of my sons and my grandchildren reside… (And, from appearances, I still think he should be doing a lot more pushups before hitting the trail each day…)
commented 2016-09-23 01:57:25 -0400
I think what he’s doing is kind of like cheating… “A woman once told me that someone who will cheat with you will cheat on you”
commented 2016-09-23 01:43:08 -0400
But again we may find ourselves in a position of a split vote and god forbid another NDP government..!!
commented 2016-09-23 01:41:55 -0400
Ken Hanson… We definitely agree…!!
He accepted a position from the voters there and when he left he was only seeking opportunity for himself and left the people that voted for him to represent them high and dry… There’s not much difference between doing that and crossing the floor to work for another party at election time..
This man to me doing what he did represents the epitome of an opportunist and we’ve had enough of those lately..
commented 2016-09-23 01:36:04 -0400
who cares… The PCs need to die a natural death and become reborn.. but however I will vote for who will reverse Rachel Notley’s considerable damage to this province as well as stand up to any federal government but especially the administration we have now in Ontario.
It is just my opinion but I believe that partisan politicsI at a provincial level is far superior than A league and B league parties working for the same team.
commented 2016-09-23 01:31:47 -0400
He might want to reconsider. I wouldn’t vote provincial pc again if you paid me to. They are rotten liberal party in pc clothing. kenney accepted a position from the voters as an mp, maybe he should meet his obligation.
