United right coming to Alberta! Which NDP MLAs need to update their resumes?

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

It’s a dream come true for many conservative Albertans and a waking nightmare for Rachel Notley.

Wildrose Leader Brian Jean is throwing his support behind the idea of uniting the two conservative parties in Alberta after that ugly divorce in 2008.

Jean also said he will seek the leadership of the new consolidated political entity.

This is bad news for Rachel Notley. It means the last of the Wildrose skepticism towards the unity charge led by PC leadership candidate Jason Kenney, has been put to rest.

The parties will unite and the vote split that delivered 30 ridings to the NDP is over.

Watch my video to see which high profile NDPers would lose their seats to a consolidated conservative party and which conservative would get sick of winning so much.

But it’s not all smooth sailing from here. Notley’s going to be a one term wonder, so now she’ll be going double speed to implement her crazy ideas while she still can.

The fight against her radical agenda isn't even close to over. It’s just starting.

My advice to these NDP MLAs is to work on their resumes. Barista, MLA, barista again.

I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt jim and maybe just maybe you could realize that that was a typo and it was supposed to read “the only party that can’t defeat the NDP is the PCs”… And what I meant by that was obviously we didn’t need any help from a defunct corrupt broke and in debt bag of corruption known as the progressive conservative government infiltrating our patriot political party ya goof.!

You looking for a fight Jim..!!

Leviticus 2013 Says “The only party right now they can’t defeat the NDP’s is the PCs.”

I guess that makes him a Liberal and a Trudeau supporter as that is what the PC’s are here in Alberta.

Fred I disagree… The only party right now they can’t defeat the NDP’s is the PCs.

This needs to happen. And PC members and MLA’s and candidates who are really liberals need to come clean and go home – to the Liberal Party. Brian Jean needs to go back to being a Ft. McMurray slum landlord. Then the new united party needs to change it’s name, adopt real conservative policies and have an open, honest leadership contest. THAT is how we win. Anything less will be a waste of time.

Jim Schultz says
“This move of joining the Wildrose with the PC’s will only slow it down a little.”

And I say why slow it down at all… Do not amalgamate with the PCs.
It is not a unification it is a takeover.

all of them every last one of the tax payer bilking ndp parasites. I am betting not many will even bother to run for re election they will see the writing on the wall.

The PC’s in Alberta are Liberals with conservative in their name but are
not truly conservatives! The liberals in Alberta could not win for so
many years (except in Edmonton) so they slowly joined the PC party which
in turn slowly moved the PC party to the left.

In my opinion this move is a step to the left and will not produce the
strong conservative values needed in Alberta to counter the socialistic
stupidity of most of the large urban centers in Canada, even in Calgary.

For this to work we need a strong Ralph Klein style leader who will
purge the new party of the liberal garbage that has accumulated over
many many years, as of yet I have not seen such a leader. Without this
leader Alberta will continue on its left wing socialistic death spiral.
This move of joining the Wildrose with the PC’s will only slow it down a
little.

As it stands Canada and Alberta are completely void of leadership. This is akin to the Titanic heading full speed into the inevitable iceberg with to small a rudder to turn it.

I commented before about my carbon rebate being applied to federal tax owing without being informed, and that I received the rebate, not my husband. Since that time I visited both my federal constituency office as well as my local MLA. Both offices had no clue that this was happening. When I asked Mr. Drysdale about putting GST onto the carbon tax, he said they have complained numerous times but have been ignored. He did mention that the NDP call it a levy, not a tax. Regardless of semantics, applying GST to a tax or levy should be outlawed. Millions of dollars in both respects are leaving Alberta and going to the feds. I guess they must have made a deal with Trudeau. Whatever they can garner in taxes they will. In the next federal and provincial election, I would vote for a monkey, as that primate would do a better job. ABN (Notley) and ABT (Trudeau).

I’m glad someone finally stood up, put their ego and vanity aside and did the right thing – for Alberta. That little bit of integrity and character should go a long way at the polls…
Now Brian Jean, it would appear you are charged with making it work!
Good luck and Godspeed…

Robert Hewgill-didn’t you get that rebate to cover your extra taxes? The carbon tax is supposed to only be a few pennies extra. Brian Jean wants WR principles impliimented into any merger but it sounds like a few more differences might have to be ironed out. At least the liberal purge seems to be ongoing.


I didn’t get a rebate but the wife got one. One utility bill and fill up with gasoline and it’s gone. Also, you pay GST on the carbon tax. I could sure use some of their global warming to shut the furnace off. Maybe it will come by next year when they’re set to increase this gouge and screw carbon tax again.
commented 2017-01-28 09:54:46 -0500
While Brian Jean likes to tout that the Wildrose Party is driven by its grassroots members, not its leaders, why is he putting forward his conditions for such a merger?
commented 2017-01-28 07:22:24 -0500
I’m with MAC CUMMING and LEVITICUSWILDROSE works fine for me. When they sweep to power maybe we can get the word “progressive” banned.

Our immediate problem will be to limit ndp damage. I fear scorched earth. They are commys, anything is possible.

I am sure their moms or dads will have to create new resumes for them , i doubt any of them have learned enough responsibility or life lessons to know how to do that on their own.
commented 2017-01-28 02:07:45 -0500
All of them. I would be surprised if Notley wins her seat. It will be like BC when the voters threw the bums out and they were left with two seats. One in skid road where the NDP specialized in bussing all the homeless people to the polls and the other in a similar riding.

Personally I like the Wild Rose name as well..
It is time for patriot politics.!!

Ted Smith…you can pack it in if you want, not me. I have kids and grand kids that deserve better. I’m fighting and fighting hard for them. In fact, I’m fighting mad as hell and not gonna take it anymore.

Its too late for Canada. Trudeau, Wynne, and Notley have killed Canada
commented 2017-01-27 21:53:04 -0500
If a new party is formed any cash or assets that the existing parties have reverts to the government and would leave the new party penniless. The Wildrose has quite a large amount of cash on hand which I believe to be a couple of million and the PCs are in debt. If the Wildrose parties organization is used and only a name change is used then the money would stay to fight an election. Personally I like the Wildrose name and if it is kept the voters would not become confused.

@ Lloyd.

I would suspect, as is true with pretty much all left wing governments, there will be a paper trail of collusion and corruption between the NDP and any parties that received these contracts. It may take time in court, but any binding contracts will more than likely be successfully rescinded.
commented 2017-01-27 20:07:22 -0500
GOOD NEWS SHEILA , my concern now is the NOBAMA treatment of Alberta as they prepare to leave , contract snares and contract traps ect
commented 2017-01-27 19:41:46 -0500
Just wait until people start getting the new utility bills with the carbon tax, which I just got today from Atco gas. The carbon tax doubled my bill from the previous month. Forget the ballot box, I can see revolution and the cartridge box coming before these two parties get hitched, if they ever do.
commented 2017-01-27 19:20:03 -0500
They should ditch more that the “progressive” in their name, but all that is “progressive”. Progressive = red torie.
commented 2017-01-27 18:58:06 -0500
That is greatly encouraging news SGR! I agree with Doctor Genius and they should ditch the “progressive” label to align with the federal Conservative branding. CPA all the way!
commented 2017-01-27 18:58:01 -0500
Also, in the vote split analysis, do not forget that a number of those votes for NDP were anti-government. I posted before that as a door to door knocker in my riding I talked to W/R supporters who were voting NDP because they wanted the P/C out, and thought NDP was the best way to go, and that Marg was a nice person,who would represent their interests.

They were correct on the one part about Marg, she is a nice person, but does not represent their interests.

In short, if 22% of the voters had voted for something rather than against something, the worse we would have received was a minority NDP government in 2015 which would have fallen by now, and Notley could have received her O.C. in this year’s Laurentian awards ceremony.

In short, the numbers Ms. Gunn-Reid cited actually exaggerate the NDP support of 2015.
