OHV rally: NDP claim “respect for diversity,” but don’t listen to THESE Albertans

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

Over the weekend, off highway vehicle (OHV) users from all across the province headed to the legislature to hold a rally against their expulsion from the newly created Castle Wilderness Park.

The OHV users feel they were misled by Environment Minister Shannon Phillips, who assured them in writing that they would be allowed to remain within the boundaries of the park after it’s creation.

The off highway users have been holding their own town halls and rallies. I attended one in Edmonton to do what the NDP refuse to do: Listen to these folks.

Those who rallied at the legislature have built and managed 850 kms of trails and bridges in Castle Park on their own. They’ve done it all sustainably while respecting the environment and without any government funds.

If the government wants to get people engaged in an actual conversation, they should be talking to off highway vehicle users about how it's done, not kicking them out because some environmental activist groups say so.

Help me fight back against urban bureaucrats who listen to out of country environmentalists instead of the Albertans who actually use the land.

I have a petition asking Minister Shannon Phillips to keep her promise to off highway vehicle users and allow them back into Castle Park to enjoy the trail system they built themselves.

Please go to and add your name to the list of Albertans who want to keep public land truly public.

I have a question for all Albertans…

Having accidentally elected an NDP government due to a combination of a large “protest vote” against the recent Progressive Conservative governments of Stelmach and Redford and a Wildrose/PC split vote on the right…
Will future generations of Albertans see the five years of immediate excruciating agony caused by the NDP government and the decades of somewhat lesser pain required to right their wrongs as having been worth it, to achieve a lifetime inoculation against future NDP governments?

Ndp does not listen to Albertans and further, they lie because they frankly dislike us a lot. I have seen them ignore every protest and petition so far, what will change? Vote them out, never to be seen again. Nutter and philips will decimate their party.

Adding to Canadian Mongrel’s statement…“Shannon Phillips is a liar”….Absolutely true, she blatantly lied on live radio concerning the provincial carbon tax, and I have caught her LYING TO THE PUBLIC on other occasions as well. Notley is a proven liar, Ceci is a proven liar, Hoffman is a LARGE proven liar, the lying bus driver Mason is a proven liar, McQuaid-Boyd has lied Carlier has lied, Bilous has lied….wait a minute, if I had just tried to point out those ndp who hadn’t lied I could have saved a lot of typing….in fact I wouldn’t even have a comment here!!! It would be blank.

One comment on Rebel the other day, from someone who was a long time and avid OHV enthusiast stated…."in all the years of OHV use in the parks etc, we always brought out more garbage than we produced while in the park. Some of the hikers were the pigs leaving most of the garbage behind, "

As a side note….Let’s get rid of the ass hat ndp ASAP. If they ever get another term, watch our hunting rights vanish. This is how evil they are.

I agree Leviticus 2013. Metaphorically speaking , it can’t be just a punch in the nose that the NDP have given these Albertans. It has to be felt as a deep dueling scare in the cheek that they remember each and every day until the election when they throw these miscreants out of office.Hopefully forever.

Joe said, “Peter, you forgot – no swearing or children holding up disgusting signs!”

After posting it I realized I left out a lot of things the left protesters do that those on the right would never do, would be too embarrassed to do … wear vagina hats … wear face masks to hide their identity … use children to push their vulgar agenda … treat people they disagree with violence and hatred.

Truth is, the evidence is blatant and prolific that conservatives/right wingers are a better breed of people.

Main conclusion: Shannon Phillips is a liar.

The contrast between conservative/right wing protests and socialist/left wing/environmentalist protests cannot be more obvious.

Conservative/right wing protests are peaceful, clean, and the people know why they are there and can clearly articulate those reasons.

Socialist/left wing/environmentalist protests are usually violent, destruction, full of hate, and litter bugs. The protesters often do not know why they are there and the ones that do know cannot articulate why they are there. Many refuse to speak.

Yet the main stream media always portrays the conservative/right wing protests in the worst possible way, even making up lies to smear the protesters, but present the socialist/left wing/environmentalist protests as holy and righteous.
