Notley NDP Energy portfolio staff shuffle replaces one anti-oil activist with another

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

The NDP have had a massive shuffle of their staff. And they did it right before Christmas because they don’t want you to notice.

Last week Graham Mitchell left his role as chief of staff in the Energy portfolio.

Remember that guy? He was the anti-oil, anti-fracking, anti-Alberta, LeadNow activist from Toronto who spent years organizing against Alberta and against Canadian energy.

His life's work was making sure pipelines weren't built and he was Notley’s first choice to head up the Energy Ministry. It was crazy.

But British Columbia has a big election coming up and the anti-energy, anti-everything people have to get organized there so Mitchell went back to the hive in Ontario to prepare for the battle of BC.

With 200,000 Albertans unemployed, most from the energy sector, Notley must have hired someone with experience in oil and gas - an Albertan who knows the industry and can advocate and work to get Alberta’s energy to market, right?

Of course not. Notley hired yet another out of province activist.

That activist is Marcella Munro, the current director of stakeholder outreach at the McDougall Centre and a BC imported anti-pipeline campaigner who worked with Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson to block Alberta pipelines.

Another fox in the henhouse.

Quote from Ralph Kline as why he hired green peace Vice President to be on the energy board. “Since he was that good on the one side, let’s pay them to be on our side and get the results we want for our energy.”
Simple way of removing someone is hire them.
Notley is smart enough to know this. Ezra is not.

Hey just what i needed a socialist to tell me how to live, since she is so much wiser than me with her wrinkled face and lungs.

So, yes, I have to make my usual observation, even though Ms. Gunn-Reid beat me to it. Where the F’ck is the Invisible Energy Minister, who theoretically sympathizes with the rural population she represents. Must be with the invisible MLA for riding of Central Peace-Dunvegan-Notley. Sorry, one and the same person.

I noted in a recent Gunter column she popped her head out to announce private electrical generation plants can become multi-use and tie to the grid, paid for through subsidy. This definitely does not mean that she intends to put a windmill or solar farm on her property in Fairview to sell to the grid and top off full teacher pension, minister/MLA hand-shake, and what ever hand-shake she got from Fairview College…I’m sure it doesn’t.

Regarding the Politicians in Canada, we need to follow Trump’s advice and “Drain the Swamp”

I think we as taxpayers should demand recall legislation in the platform of WRP or PC, or perhaps both. Hopefully, come next election, those parties are one and the same. After all, politicians work for US, not the perversion of the opposite we have now. We need the ability to fire poor employees, such as what we have now with Notley and her incompetent, irresponsible government.

Hey Weber…..I will gladly give you a make over, one punch at a time ass hole.
It has become clear the the leftist regressive fucktards have to be treated like they are computers…….the information has to be punched into them.

Kelly Weber, you are a real true asshole. Maybe someone should give you a “makeover”.

With Donald Trump at the helm of the USA this should’ve been a time of great prosperity for Canada and the USA… With our federal administration in Ottawa and our current provincial administration in Alberta we seem to be drifting further back to greater unemployment and less job opportunities further hollowing out the middle class in Canada as Trudeau and Notley destroy the economic engine of Canada.

So mini me (Notley) will now help to kill jobs and raise taxes in Alberta.

Perhaps the Rebel can crowd fund Sheila a makeover.
