Albertans staged twelve rallies in cities spread out all over the province to protest the NDP’s job killing carbon tax on everything we do.
I was at the rally in Edmonton at the the Alberta legislature where 1,500 people gathered to peacefully protest the NDP’s social engineering of our economy. That economic tinkering has already started chasing away business, investment and jobs at a time when Alberta is already hit hard by low oil prices.
Watch my report to see what the demonstrators and organizers had to say at the rally and see the one self-identified former NDP voter I found in the crowd. It’s true, they do exist!
The carbon tax wasn't in the NDP election platform and they didn't mention it during debates or at town halls. It was their hidden agenda.
The NDP have no mandate from Albertans to implement this tax and the organizers want to petition Notley to allow the public a referendum on the new pseudo sales tax she never campaigned on.
A full two thirds of Albertans are opposed to the carbon tax. If the NDP really believe they have a mandate, they should be willing to prove it.
