The Rebel hosted a huge rally over the weekend where Albertans had the opportunity to send a message to the NDP to stop the carbon tax.
Those who showed up are very concerned about the taxes and policy the NDP are bringing in that works directly against Albertans.
Carbon taxes, increased property taxes and corporate tax increases coupled with the unnecessary coal phase out and constant increases in spending just aren’t helping the situation in the province.
Almost 3,000 people showed up from all walks of life and we handed out almost 600 signs at the Legislature for people to take home so they could display their opposition to the tax.
There’s no telling what the extent of the devastation will be from the tax but there’s no doubt that it’s going to hit families hard despite the rebate the NDP are handing out which doesn’t factor in many of the added costs of groceries and services that will be passed on to consumers.
Watch my video to see the reaction of some of the folks in the crowd who have simply had enough of being ignored by the government.
The people of Alberta are frustrated. They’re tired of being kicked around by both the federal and provincial governments, especially after being the backbone of the Canadian economy for so long.
They feel they’ve given so much only to be kicked down by the people that were elected to make sure that they were being taken care of!
One thing was clear, the countdown to election time is on.
