Did you hear about the time Notley no showed on a ground breaking event in Red Deer? Of course you didn’t.
The media didn’t report it. But I will.
Friday afternoon there was supposed to be a ground breaking ceremony with Rachel Notley on the campus of Red Deer college. The event was planned to commemorate the start of the construction for the new Gary W. Harris Centre for Health, Wellness, and Sport. The Centre itself is touted as a centrepiece of the 2019 Canada Winter games being hosted by Red Deer.
Some regular Albertans found out and went there to peacefully protest the Premier from a parking lot across the street. So Rachel Notley cancelled the groundbreaking ceremony.
The protesters weren’t violent. They weren’t threatening. But they were obviously too much for Rachel Notley and she cancelled the photo-op. And that's serious because politicians love a good photo-op.
This is the value of a peaceful protest. They make our NDP overlords flinch.
The NDP are going to do a lot to this province over the next 3 years, and regular people should make it as uncomfortable and difficult for the NDP as they can.
