Victoria, BC's radical mayor is coming to Alberta — with “an open mind”? Or “bad intentions”? (Guest host: Sheila Gunn Reid)

(Ezra Levant is in the UK, helping Tommy Robinson expose the BBC's fake news. Sheila Gunn Reid is guest hosting...)

Victoria, British Columbia’s radical environmentalist mayor Lisa Helps is coming to Alberta, to see if our oil industry is as bad as she’s sure it is.

Will she really come with an open mind, as she claims?

Helps was invited by Calgary City Councilor Ward Sutherland, who challenged her to come and learn about Alberta's ethical oil and gas industry, and our many environmental initiatives.

Helps has said:

“I believe in a broad perspective. I believe in building understanding. I can't speak for anyone else, either here or in Alberta, but I think that mudslinging and pointing fingers gets us nowhere.”

Mayor Lisa Helps is a real piece of work, a perfect storm of all the Canadian social justice issues of the day:

Anti-colonialist. Anti-free speech. Oozing with misplaced white guilt. She wants to erase history, 1984 style, and she's a raging environmentalist to boot.

I'm not even exaggerating. In fact, I'm probably downplaying just how kooky she is.

TONIGHT I’ll take you one a tour of some of her “Greatest Hits” so you know exactly what kind of “open” mindset she's coming with.

I’ll start off with her city council’s class action lawsuit against oil and gas companies, for “climate change reparations…”

And yes, this is the same woman who made international headlines for taking down the statue of Canada’s first prime minister, Sir John A. MacDonald, outside Victoria City Hall.

Alberta does this so often, albeit with actual celebrities, like Jane Fonda and Neil Young. Does it ever help matters?

The only way to change Helps mind is to sit her down with the people that her bad ideas are hurting: entrepreneurial Aboriginal bands, oil sands workers, truckers, farmers, families who are struggling to afford their groceries...

NEXT: There are a lot of people out there claiming to be United We Roll convoy organizers — and the Media Party is going all out to use these random individuals as movement representatives. 

My guest is a real United We Roll organizer, Haley Wile. We debunk the misinformation being spread about this grassroots, pro-pipeline movement, and talk about what's next on their agenda.

FINALLY: Your messages to The Rebel Media!

And the latest is that this “Mayor Helpless” is seriously entertaining replacing Victoria’s iconic cherry trees with “native species”?? You reap what you sow Victoria jerks….

It really makes you question the electoral system and or the voter intellect when she was voted in twice. Sad state of affairs though voter turn out in 2014, she won by 89 votes, 9200 total votes for the winning Mayor. Big upturn in 2018 though 12642 total votes for Lisa. Considering the population of Victoria its not really an overwhelming vote of confidence. Shows how disinterested the locals are. Sadly Gritty would be a shoo in for Victoria Mayor in the next election. As a resident of Vancouver Island I can verify things are not well and hope he registers

Paul it gets worse, these same idiot PC pinheads will send what’s left of our jobs to China the biggest polluting country in the history of the world while we are told to reduce our “carbon footprint”

- So a bunch of far left elitists are getting together to discuss ways to better screw over the people in the name of man made global cooling/warming/climate change. How wonderful for the taxpayers & consumers who will be expected to foot the bill for their shallow virtue signaling.

- When the far left starts accusing someone of being racist, sexist, White supremacist, Nazi, fascist, etc. (aka NPC mode) it’s because they hate them but can’t find any acceptable reason why. This has gone beyond just being their default position. This is why it was great that The Rebel embedded a reporter with United We Roll – so people who care about the truth can still see it somewhere.

Perhaps Lisa only wants a tour of Fort Mac’s sewer treatment plant as she has never seen one before and they don’t exist in her utopia

Sorry for my repeated rants.
Forgot I had already commented on here yesterday.
I just can’t accept what is happening to this former country and the fact NO ONE IS DOING A THING TO STOP IT AS THE ANTI WHITE, ANTI DEMOCRACY, ANTI FREEDOM, INSANITY PLAGUE RACES ACROSS THE LAND DESTROYING EVERYTHING IN IT’S PATH.
we are on the edge of all out destruction and no one seems to be getting this and while it did start some decades ago (beginning in my opinion with the first trudeau), the past 3 years under mohammad and butts has pretty much destroyed what took a couple of hundred years and MILLIONS of lives to build and sacrifice for!
i’M SIMPLY STUNNED AND BROKENHEARTED BY WHAT CANADIANS HAVE WILLFULLY ALLOWED AND CONTINUED TO SUPPORT/REWARD!
You all must truly HATE the lives, freedoms, democracy, sovereignty, security, peace you all enjoyed in this former GREAT COUNTRY, CANADA!

Sheldon Eisler,
Thank you.

Keith Barnes,
EXACTLY!
and I agree with your last sentence.
the "legalized euthanasia, is only meant for WHITE CANADIANS- BEGINNING WITH OUR ELDERLY while the globes NON WHITE , INVADING ELDERLY AND SICK, MONEY IS NO OBJECT FOR!
My advice for any canadians whose elderly family members can no longer look after themselves, DON’T PUT THEM IN ANY OF OUR SENIOUR CARE BECAUSE MOHAMMAD IS DOING WHAT HE CAN TO GET RID OF THEM ALL ALONG WITH US IN ORDER TO SERVE THE INVADERS who had absolutely NOTHING TO DO WITH THE BUILDING AND SERVING OF THIS FORMER NATION AND NEVER WILL!
we are under the NEW NAZI ‘S with all we WHITES being the target of GENOCIDE VIA TRUDEAU!
Don’t kid yourselves, I predict he will be pushing an agenda soon – if it isn’t already in place, to remove our elderly from their homes (in order to house his new voters) , place them in seniour ‘care’ (for our white canadian elderly only ) and then ordering “assisted suicide” for them so money is not wasted keeping them alive!
Think I’m nuts??? tHINK AGAIN!
the boy and his puppeteer/government are DIABOLICAL WITH HATE, CONTEMPT AND DISDAIN FOR WE WHITE CANADIANS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GREAT JOB SHEILA ! !

simple solution: SHUT OFF ALL THE TAPS TO THESE FREAKS , PULL ALL YOUR MONEY OUT OF THE BANKS AND LET THE CHIPS FALL WHERE THEY MAY UNTIL SANITY AND REASON RETURN OTHERWISE WE ARE ALL DONE!
These G.D. FREAKS, currently in office/running for office have NOTHING on their agendas other than FULL OUT DESTRUCTION OF WHAT USED TO BE ONE OF THE BEST, SAFEST, MOST SOVEREIGN, FREE, DEMOCRATIC, INTELLECTUAL LANDS ON THE PLANET! ARE THEY ALL ON DOPE? HAVE THEY ALL LOST THEIR MINDS??
HOW DID WE GET HERE??????
NONE would be in the positions they now are in NOR WOULD THEY HAVE EVEN BEEN BORN AND LIVED IN THE SECURITY, FREEDOMS, AND SO ON THEY HAVE had it not been for the laws, protections, values, and so on CAnada once had yet now all these "elitist/socialist/self serving, marixts have the funny idea THEY ALL KNOW WHAT IS BEST FOR US AND WE NEED TO DO AS THEY SAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
DROP DEAD!
NO ONE AND I MEAN NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO DESTROY THE FREEDOMS, DEMOCRACY, VALUES, AND SO ON CANADA WAS BUILT ON AND THAT INCLUDES THESE FREAKS IN OFFICE!
Problem seems to be the more canuks were promised and given, the less they cared about the integrity, honour , honesty, values etc. of these political vote whores all wanting complete control over our lives and brains!
Well I can assure you , my brain is in very good working order which is a hell of a lot more than I can say for this freak and most of the others from coast to coast , border to border being paid by us to secure, serve , protect us and the former nation, CANADA!
VIA APATHY, IGNORANCE, GREED, AND SO ON, CANADIANS ARE ALLOWING ALL WHICH THEIR FOREFATHERS BUILT AND LAID THEIR LIVES ON THE LINE FOR UP TO AND INCLUDING TODAY , TO BE ALL FOR NOTHING AS THEY FREELY VOTE TO DESTROY IT ALL VIA THE VERMIN IN OUR POLITICAL SPHERES!
TOO MUCH POWER, TOO MUCH MONEY/GREED, POLITICAL CORRECTNESS AND NOT ENOUGH PATRIOTISM HAS LED US TO THE MESS WE ARE NOW IN WHICH IS ABOUT TO COMPLETELY ANNIHILATE NOT ONLY WHAT USED TO BE CANADA BUT US!
I simply cannot for the life of me even begin to understand this madness which is overtaking the entire land and seemingly every person residing here!
ENOUGH OF THE LIBERALISM/POLITICAL CORRECTNESS , WHITE GUILT, "NO ONE IS ILLEGAL/SOCIALIST B.S INSANITY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I sure as hell don’t need some lefty freak ruling/controlling, deciding my future and that of my country! THEY’RE ALL NUTS AND GETTING MORE DANGEROUS BY THE MINUTE AS THEY ACTUALLY BELIEVE THEIR OWN PRESS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

ARE CANADIANS ALL INGRATES OR SIMPLY ALL INSANE?????
STOP THIS MADNESS NOW AND I DON’T MEAN TO SIT BACK AND WAIT FOR ANOTHER ILLEGAL, BILLION DOLLAR ELECTION WHICH WILL FIX NOTHING BUT RATHER EXASPERATE AN ALREADY SELF DESTRUCTIVE SITUATION GETTING WORSE BY THE SECOND.
HAS THE ENTIRE GLOBE LOST THEIR MINDS?
???

the left seem all to be anti life. they forget the fact they are in the wonderful positions they are in, have led the wonderful lives they have lived is due to the freedoms, protections, sovereignty, democracy and laws which were in place when they were born.
NOw nothing will due but to destroy it all, bringing insanity to a whole new level and forcing it all down our throats until soon we are all going to be in gutters.
What the hell is it ? Is it in the air, water ?? Can NO ONE THINK , RATIONALIZE AND DOES NO ONE HAVE ANY COMMON SENSE ANYMORE?
HAS THE WHITE RACE ALL GONE INSANE?????????
I’m going INSANE trying to figure this all out and believe me it is like trying to figure out how big the universe is as I try to understand the mass insanity gripping the white western world- which by the way was, until LIBERALISM/POLITICAL CORRECTNESS BECAME INDOCTRINATED INTO ALL OF US VIA OUR GOVERNMENTS/POLITICIANS/MEDIA , BUT A FEW DECADES AGO, THE BEST PART OF THE GLOBE IN WHICH TO BE BORN AND RAISED!
humanity is on the verge of complete destruction and no one seems to get it!

Sure, and if you’re not a girl after me own heart Sheila Gunn-Reid…maybe you could keep that Canada hating lefty progressive mayor of Victoria in Alberta until she learns what it means to be Canadian!

And to say nothing, of the fact that Victoria now seems to be the favourite destination, by far, for every “injection site” druggie and “homeless person” from Nova Scotia on West, who can’t be “accommodated” at East Hastings and Main in Vancouver…
commented 2019-02-23 02:43:19 -0500
Thank you James Hall.. She is indeed "bat shit crazy’ and the only reason she got re-elected because some eight opponents split the vote against her.. Her attempt to turn Victoria into a mini-Copenhagen, with tit-useless bike lanes, will go down in history as how to screw a once pedestrian friendly provincial capital… She is indeed “nuttssie-kookoo”, but gets enough butt-kissing from the local media to sustain her madness… The long term implications will come home to roost – inevitably – in the years to come…

She would look “super inclusive” in a full scale body bag – potato sack Burkha !

Predictions:
Firstly, Gerald Butts will re-emerge as head of the NEB.
Secondly, the Federal cabinet will slap a royalty tax on Alberta exports – payable to the BC municipalities and anyone else who claims they are adversely impacted.
I enjoy visiting Victoria and the Island, but there are a lot of weird, weird people there … and they vote for like minded kooks. I mean Victoria dumps untreated sewage, mile long trains of coal continuously chug to Vancouver for export. What do they know? Since oil is cleaner than coal, perhaps Alberta oil exports are viewed as a threat.
Thirdly, the royalty taxes (extortion payments) will render most resource development in Alberta uneconomic.
Fourthly, solar panels will be on every corner (sun or no sun) … financed on the backs of Albertans.
Yeah, money for nothing, the Liberal way.

Two thumbs up for Sheila and Haley. Such a pleasure to listen to them. For the first time in a long I actually had a smile on my face. These ladies can put a great face on the troubles the West is feeling.

This Bimbo is a waste of space and is in the employ of the NWO Marxist Big Business Barons. These people are deeply interested in cheap labour for their Factories. They are engineering the end of the white race by importing untold numbers of savages. Profit is their God, they do not care for expensive skilled white persons who expect a fair wage for their skills.
If you have children be prepared to fight for their lives. If you are old, stay away from Hospitals, you will only come out feet first. Trudeau has stated that Euthanasia of the Sick and the Old is completely acceptable.

The theme of clueless leftists who have their tiny minds made up went all through this broadcast. And in true Orwellian fashion, they put good for bad and darkness for light. The mayor of Victoria and the thug who attacked Rebel reporters are the same when it comes to being deluded. I wish I had a driver who would take me to wherever this dingbat shows up to protest her.

As everyone probably knows, the Kinder Morgan Pipeline was " pretty well " okayed today.
I firmly believe that the coverage of the UNITED WE ROLL CONVEY deserves much credit as the Lefties deciding would certainly have seen the professional behavior of the people involved.

She is bat shit crazy – Kookoo for coca puffs
She’s worried about our “carbon footprint”
So she thinks we should do more business with the worst polluter in the history of the planet – China
But hey At least shes “virtue signalling”
