Notley hits Alberta small businesses with union-style rules (GUEST: Robbie Picard)

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

 

It’s no secret that Rachel Notley is waging all out war on entrepreneurs in Alberta.

It started with a 20% corporate tax hike in the weeks after the NDP took office in 2015. Next, Notley went after rural business people with Bill 6. Then, in the middle of an economic downturn, the NDP brought in the carbon tax and hiked the minimum wage.

But Notley wasn’t done yet.

Did you know Alberta restaurants and retailers just got handed their own version of Bill 6?

Starting January 1, the NDP are implementing broad sweeping changes to labour legislation - imposing union style rules on Alberta businesses that operate with the slimmest of margins.

Joining me tonight is a familiar face and friend of the show, Robbie Picard.

You may know him from his oilsands activism, but he also owns a bar in Fort Mac and, just like thousands of other small business owners, he’s been dealing with all the onerous hurdles to success the NDP have put in his way.

Robbie and I will discuss some of the challenges facing his small business, and everything else under the sun - from gay rights to the CBC to Justin Trudeau!

Gerry , Eric and Rick the sad things is that the Stalin program had little i did not already know, meanwhile the useful idiots would have turned it off after the introduction in order to spare their delusions.

Eric Dynneson will have to check that one out, some of the older relatives on my Ukrainian side spoke about why they came to Canada when i was very young , it was hard to comprehend what they were saying at that age though.

Rick Plesnik will search for that one as well, maybe save a copy of material like that digitally as it may be removed from public access one day.

How can Notley sleep at night?
Everyone but these cruddy socialists know that wages rise when the market can bear it. Take a lesson from Trump Notley, create a more accommodating economic climate and keep your nose out of business. Small business can’t afford her interference. What a witch! Every regulation and new tax is nothing more than a money laundering scam for filling politicians pockets.

Robbie is spot on, about business and First Nations. Right on Robbie.
Even thought Robbie poked at Justin he still gave him too much credit. Justin tough? that’s a laugh!
Robbie, just bite it and take the red pill, you are already a conservative in practice.
Notley is a snake Robbie, she will not build any pipelines and neither will Justin. It ain’t going to happen.
As far as affirmative action is concerned re: hiring employees for appropriate skills not for looks, no trouble here. I couldn’t agree more.
Just swallow that red pill Robbie I think it is already in your mouth.

The younger generations have been so brainwashed by lies that they don’t even know what communism is. With the Marxist union teachers, the rewriting of history, a bought and paid for MSM, instant forms of communication, left-wing language tags, and much more; these have all aided and abetted in the continual spreading of lies to deceive the masses. The me, myself and I generations are selfish and self-centered to the point that they are easily incited to riot, and they behave as a group, and not as individuals. They no longer tune into their consciences as individuals, but think as a group.

DREW WAKARIUK commented: “Watched a good documentary on Stalin last night on Smithsonian Channel , it will probably be outlawed very soon.”

Another good one to get your hands on if you can (was out on DVD a few years ago) is called “The Soviet Story”. It is unnerving so many regressives seemingly want this as a “model” society!

- Socialists are parasites. They don’t know how to run things or build things. They don’t know how business or the economy works. They get their advice from Marxist economic professors who never lived in the world outside the school system. They go to union leaders as industry experts. These people are only interested in expanding their unions, lining their pockets & crushing non-union competition. These socialists think they’re brilliant though & when their policies fail they look for someone or something to blame it on. This happens every single time.

Another Stalin movie to watch is, Bitter Harvest (2017) 1080p BluRay Remux AVC DTS-HD MA 5.1. Myself and my Wife traveled to Soviet Union in Sept. 1990 and traveled east to west on the Trans Siberian Railway. Visited and stayed in Irkutsk, Moscow, Keiv and Leningrad. I will keep this short but we saw Socialism in its pure form Communism. The people were just numb about the whole system. Everybody is about the same and got paid about the same if you were an achiever you got nothing for it, so the work plan was to due as little as possible. The young people (Under 30 group) where pissed and said this about there jobs “They pretend to pay us and we pretend to work 70 years wasted”. The older people where afraid of loosing the social benefits as it was the end of the Soviet era. There was no unemployment there as everything was 5-8 times over staffed. I could write more as it was an eye opener, when I listen to these Socialists, I have seen the end game of there policy and its not nice.

Edmonton would have been a better choice over Ft. Mac’. Nobody in Ft. Mac’ is affected by the Minimum Wage Law as they all must earn more just to make a Living Wage there.

Watched a good documentary on Stalin last night on Smithsonian Channel , it will probably be outlawed very soon. The truth about communism and commies is very well shown in this program, i wish our Universities and stupid millenials would watch it to see how great their hero really is.
It is called-Stalin – In Color(because they colorized it). Very informative about the inhuman POS and how many lies they spread.

Keith Barnes , Notley is a communist,a true red Marxist. Her policies and actions mirror those of Hugo Chavez during his first years in office.
Words like progressive and socialist are just euphemisms and hide the true danger she poses.

Socialism is the same the world over, their agenda is simply to drag everybody down to the level of beggars on the street, while the Political Elite, drive around in fancy cars, live in fancy Mansions and have special stores, where they can buy fancy foods and luxury’s. Working men will have to line up for five hours, just to purchase half a loaf of stale bread, to feed their families on for the day. If this sounds like Stalin’s USSR that is because it is. This is what Socialism is all about. Wake up all you who would vote for the Left because the only Left you will get is, left behind.
