Skeptical public uncovers truth about “normal” Alberta family in NDP photo-op

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Host | The Gunn Show

The NDP are lying to you. Last week, NDP Health Minister and Deputy Premier Sarah Hoffman proudly sat on the couch of a normal Alberta family to champion the carbon tax rebate that they are getting. 

The NDP used a photo of them all in a press release, and Hoffman tweeted the picture out as proof that normal people like the carbon tax.

This family, the Collins, were sold to us as just a regular Alberta mom, dad and a cute little baby. And they were so grateful to the NDP for this bribe with their own money.

And the media? Well they ate it up until the public, smelling a rat, committed some real journalism.

Watch my video to see the real story of the Collins family, the story the public uncovered on their own.

It was bad when Murray Edwards from CNRL stood like a hostage with Stockholm syndrome behind Rachel Notley and Shannon Phillips to push the Climate Leadership Plan. But at least we all knew who Murray Edwards was and we knew there was something in it for him to be standing there; grants, incentives, kickbacks. Whatever. It was gross. But it was upfront.

But no one was upfront about Sean Collins.

What does it say about a government program if they can’t find a single unconnected normal person who will tell you that they like it?

We are all paying for the corruption committed against us.

I would love to know, if we the citizens can sue these losers into oblivion.
commented 2017-01-11 10:46:30 -0500
If everyone put in a dollar. Could we file a law suit against these frauds. the only thing they will understand is being hit in the pocket book. Any lawyers out there willing to take up our the cause?
Perhaps the useless human rights court would take the case. I feel victimized along with the rest of Alberta.

The NDP really need to get out of their Echo Chamber & REALLY listen to & hear what Albertans are trying to tell them. If every photo op & town hall is stacked with insiders then they will be very suprised come 2020 (yes 2020, legally they don’t have to call an election till 2020, they will hold on as long as they can) God help us, 2020 is a very long time!

Was there ever a time when politicians, any of them, were actually honest and honorable and truly represented the people they were elected to SERVE? Not lie to them in order to remain in office and eventually receive a big fat pension, after giving government grants to all their friends. These are a different breed of human, and I wonder how they sleep at night.

I agree Bill, they are traitors, and are teaching their child to be a traitor too!
commented 2017-01-11 08:02:40 -0500
We should be directing our angst towards the supporters of these socialist parties ,beginning with teachers and their stinking unions. Throw in the rest of the public sector union people that all get raises in trade for their support.
commented 2017-01-11 01:24:00 -0500
Can’t we have a non confidence vote on these lying sacks of monkey spunk and kick them out of office?
While we’re at it, get rid Trudope, that fucking traitor to Canada!
I really would like to know who voted these morons in, guess Harper wasn’t so bad after all eh

Another words Christina, most people had a better income a couple years ago.
commented 2017-01-11 00:59:51 -0500
Christina… Sometimes we have to look further than the length of our nose to see where this is all going. Perhaps they shouldn’t have paid anything out before the 2016 taxes were done because this was after their financial crunch… Don’t you see it?
commented 2017-01-11 00:12:37 -0500
For fuck sakes there must be laws against this fraudulent propaganda/advertising.
commented 2017-01-10 23:55:35 -0500
Leviticus 2013, how do you expect the government to pay out based on 2016 income when 2016 taxes haven’t been completed yet? Just curious is all.
commented 2017-01-10 23:33:43 -0500
Keep an eye on Sean Collins…..has the stench of government grants.

As for Petunia they must have craned her in. Huge carbon hoof print.
commented 2017-01-10 23:01:14 -0500
My friend got $100 rebate today but they dated her taxes back to 2015… That isn’t even an accurate income statement anymore as she is missing close to $10,000 a year from that time to now.!!
What a scam.!!
commented 2017-01-10 22:55:31 -0500
Billy Howard-the 27% of Albertans who would still vote NDP are all working for the government.
Peter Babich-same here. I thought I was supposed to get $200 and my wife another $100. What’s with that?
commented 2017-01-10 22:26:09 -0500
Great story Sheila

I might add the CBC also does this a lot. Next time the CBC runs their little push stories, try searching the internet for the people the CBC is basing the story around. For example, a while back, the young lady (Alexandra Shimo) who was asked to relocate downstairs in a golf club in order to breast feed her baby. Or the young lady (Becca Babcock) who kept receiving her letter back from Canada Post after sending it to the Federal Government having no postage. There’s lots more but those two come to mind immediately. Do a little research, you’ll be shocked.

Stay on these rats like a cat on a hot tin roof.
They lie,
they deceive,
they take your money for useless Carbon Taxes.
Waiting on my rebate.

Not so fast Sheila. I got $165 from the government in my account. Not a joke. Serious government action. Helps to counter what I used to make before coffee break a year and a half ago.
commented 2017-01-10 22:18:18 -0500
These people who let themselves be used as shills for globalist Commie propaganda are traitors. They sold out and now pimp economic hardship for their masters.

There’s something so Maoist about the whole sales pitch of NDP policy agendas
commented 2017-01-10 22:11:54 -0500
Good work Sheila, you’ve just given us more proof of the lying, hypocritical NDP.
For the NDP to even suggest that anyone in their right mind would like the carbon tax is absurd. Can’t trust any of them
Fake photos, fake endorsements, fake climate science.
This minister’s face should be plastered everywhere with the caption “LIAR” printed below it.
commented 2017-01-10 21:09:13 -0500
LOL too funny to be true
commented 2017-01-10 20:59:28 -0500
Okay. It’s taken a while but I finally have to write: The fucking frauds!
commented 2017-01-10 20:57:00 -0500
No surprise from the Non-Democratic Party. Just like it was no surprise a family of three had to squeeze into half a couch to make room for the poster child of health, our health minister…talking about hypocracy.

2017 is the Alberta municipal elections, get involved and turf the lower level regressive.

I’ve been following this site for a while now, and this story for me finally got me so riled up I had to leave a comment. Sheila, without the stories and investigations such as you and The Rebel provide, the Canadian public would be woefully misinformed about the true nature of the current state of affairs in this country. The hypocrisy of the MSM can be measured by their complete lack of coverage of this disgusting display of propaganda! If any conservative government were caught doing what you so eloquently (and far more politely than I would have) articulated, well we all know how it would be “reported” & “investigated”, don’t we? Thank you and everyone at The Rebel & keep up the great work.
commented 2017-01-10 20:31:42 -0500
What I don’t understand is how 27% of Albertans still would vote for Notley (poll from last month). That’s 27% who have no issue with being treated like fools, and are blindly willing to have the province go down the same road as Venezuela. Astounding.
commented 2017-01-10 19:57:33 -0500
More disgusting propaganda brought to you by the ministry of bullshit.
commented 2017-01-10 19:56:46 -0500
Good diggens INDIANA REID , I like how as soon as you find an interesting specimen you put it in the REBEL archeology museum and on display for all to see

This year alone I predict you’ll have to expand the museum
commented 2017-01-10 19:52:24 -0500
The arrogant audacity, it’s unbelievable!
