THIS Conservative politician fights for unemployed Albertans media calls “deplorable”

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

I call out politicians when they are awful, even if they are conservative. But I also try to show you when they are good. 

Conservative MPs Michelle Rempel and Shannon Stubbs took over a standing committee on immigration meeting and made the Liberals sit for over an hour and listen to them as they advocated for hundreds of Alberta jobs. It was something to behold.

In October without consultation or warning, the Liberals announced the closure of the Vegreville Immigration Case Processing Centre, slashing nearly 300 jobs out of a town of 5,800. That’s like Toronto losing 290,000 jobs overnight.

But the jobs aren’t gone. They’ve been taken from the Conservative stronghold of Vegreville and gifted to a Liberal voting riding over an hour away in Edmonton. It’s all political.

Watch my video to see how these two fought off repeated attempts by the Liberals to shut them up and to see the emotional response Stubbs had as she read dozens of letters from her constituents, detailing what the loss of the Processing Centre jobs would mean to them and their town.

We saw Conservatives of all stripes in Alberta hiding under their chairs this week when things got a little heated for them.

When the media scolded unemployed Albertans at our Rally for Alberta Families, for not being polished enough in their language, our conservative leaders joined in the scolding and admonishing.

Contrast that with Stubbs and Rempel.

They took control of a committee meeting, refused to be shut down, gave a voice to people who had none, and fought tears for seventy-one minutes to fight for Alberta jobs.

It’s nice to see a conservative politician who cares more about their constituents than their own pride or about what they will look like in the mainstream media.

I hate crying politicians.

Stubb’s constituents should be very proud of their MP. Every once in a while, a politician comes along who is genuine & true to those by whom they were elected, this is such a time, so kudos are in order here.
Thankyou to you as well Sheila for highlighting this story.

Liberals still acting like Liberals, who could have seen that coming? I sure hope all of CBC gets the boot for refugee workers.

The Libs need to shore up what little support in Alberta they have before the next elections so they can get at least 1 Edmonton MP to call there own. Any Conservative riding in the country is at risk of the same treatment.

Bravo. Ambrose must have been embarrassed with this; and so she should be.

Remember Albertans, the rest of Canada is with you on this. You’re not alone. Many of us wish we could join in this weekend.
This time, though, chant ‘lock THEM up’!

I lived in Calgary when crith the Liberal leader did his openly revenge move on the base — it was so Liberal

Thanks SHEILA , if not for the REBEL , what other source would have showed us that

The Liberals moved the Armed Forces Base from Calgary to Edmonton in 1998 to punish us for not electing any Liberals. We’re seeing the same type of mean spirited ignorant bullshit here. Liberals are scum.

Canadian mongrel… I wish to see
Derric Fildebrandt take the reins from Brian Jean who fortunately before it was too late tipped his hand to his constituents.
Kenny doesn’t have a hope in hell Brian doesn’t have a hope in hell and Derric is the only man that deserves a chance for a shot at the title..
Any Man/woman that’s not afraid of political correctness will have the undying and ever loyal support of the majority of people who wish to unseat the NDP and install a responsible administration that is run by adults.. I know that we’re all mad at them sons of bitches that threw us under the bus but nonetheless people in the next election we must vote as every non-vote is a vote for the NDP and I still suggest that everybody vote Wild Rose as it is in their platform to appeal a lot of what Rachel Notley did including Bill C6 and the carbon tax, as well as shrink the size of government… We can work out the details beyond that.!

If we, the people, do not stand up and fight these Liberal Socialist Marxist Globalist, then we shall all Die, Halal style.

It is time for all of us to open our eyes and fight back. The Scum who are ruling the World, right now, only understand violence.

Make Your own conclusions.

The previous government probably was aware that there are plenty of French speaking people in Vegreville who could be recruited for jobs like this where bilingualism is sometimes required. Some of those people even consider French their mother tongue. Unfortunately for them, they are Albertans, and therefore not good enough for our Quebec supremacist prime minister. It’s a lot easier to find his cronies in Edmonton.

Wish there were more like her.

Sheila glad you brought up the fact that rural Alberta and small town Alberta is being economically stressed and depopulated by design – this serves 2 purposes; first these are enclaves of conservative or populist resistance to transnationalist socialism so it is a pogrom to dispossess dissent. This is also a land use redistribution project for globalist Agenda 21 feudalism – make rural living economically unfeasible through regulating, taxing and permitting, then herd these dispossessed people into high population metro centers where they become reliant on government and very controllable.

Can’t have wild people out there in the conservative hinterlands, those are reserved for ruling elite recreation and the use of the power elite’s corporate agri-biz cronies.

All it takes is one person to stand up,and I’m glad it’s these women, it might shame some of the spineless men in their party to go shopping at Gucci’s for a designer set of nads.

As for the rest of us……

Rise up and get off your knees and say no to tyranny!!!!!!!!!! I say rise up and get off your knees and say no to the NDP!!!!!!

A true MP. One who believes in her constituents, even when her leader throws them under the bus.

I will be curious as to what kinda CPC leadership hopeful shows up in Calgary, Sunday. Probably none, at which point my membership and donations evaporate. I was glad to hear on Levant’s show that Fildebrandt is speaking. My belief is that in a leadership race between he, Jean, and Kenney, Fildebrandt will win.

I would like to know the reason (excuse) given for moving this office to a Lib-friendly riding – if they could not show me an accountants projection of money it would save taxpayers or prove the move improved service, I would fie a complaint with th ombudsman and the auditor general – Librano payola, largesse and corruption will run rampant unless the real opposition put a clamp on it – legally preferably.

Liberal sleaze repackaged an sold to mindless zombie through an arrested development narcissist for PM who only wants to show his tits off for media sycophants.

Meanwhile down at fake news central (CBC TO) – only the sound of crickets chirping breaks the silence on Librano enmity for the west.

Rona Ambrose could take a lesson from Michelle Rempel and Shannon Stubbs.
commented 2016-12-08 18:33:31 -0500
Stubbs and Rempel and Sheila have more brains than any so called men we have in politics . All three of you ladys have my upmost respect .
commented 2016-12-08 18:18:17 -0500
Yep, both Stubbs and Rempel have my deepest respect. They make us all proud. The difference between Stubbs shedding tears in public and the liberal girls shedding tears in public is that Stubbs cries for the people, the lib girls cry for themselves.
Bravo, bravo to two strong Alberta broads. I thank you for being our voices against those who are oppressing us and simply don’t care.
And thank you too , Sheila.
Three strong Alberta broads.
