Will Notley NDP lead by example in “low carbon, high tax” Alberta and take buses?

Sheila Gunn ReidRebel Commentator
 

Have you purchased your bus passes, second hand bikes and new running shoes yet? We need to prepare for the new “low carbon, high tax” Alberta that will come two weeks from now when Rachel Notley’s carbon tax kicks in.

Notley wants us to walk, ride a bike or take a bus but is the government leading by example? Are they actually climate leaders?

The answer is “no”.

Government travel receipts show that the NDP and their bureaucrats routinely choose the higher carbon travel option and then expense it to taxpayers.

Not only are they driving when they could be taking the bus or walking, they’re even flying short distances at huge costs.

NDP MLA Ricardo Miranda and another senior bureaucrat took a $600 flight to Lethbridge from Calgary which is a short two hour ride on a shuttle bus.

It’s obvious, there is no ‘leadership’ in the NDP’s Climate Leadership Plan.

Called the bus company. It was booked only one way. There was no bus after. Ezra. Does no research for facts. Total pathetic.

Notley isn’t a leader, she’s a destroyer. But will continue to live the high life on our tax dollars. Still, the PCs brought this upon the province; Stelmach, Redford, and that last federal Conservative scumball Prentice,parachuted in to save the party, did an utter fail – people didn’t vote for the New Dumbocrats, they voted against the PCs.

@drew WAKARIUK…..You are right Drew, normally she can be seen riding her broom. The optics of her flitting about after falling out of a $70,000 Suburban should tell the public all they need to know. Next on the agenda will be doubling up on her already massive security detail. The cunt should be burned at the stake. She lives by her motto though,“So much destruction, so little time”. For you progressive left geniuses, ENJOY the illegal carbon tax, FOOLS.

John Landry: Is that their lesson plan on ‘lying to get ahead’?

Sheila: Thank you for your dedication and commitment to helping Albertans. You sacrifice a great deal of your personal life to fight this battle for so many who do not have a voice.
God bless you.

I will cure Cancer and solve world hunger and bring peace to the middle east before Notley and her party practice what they preach.

David White at least Tooker rode his bike, i doubt Notley has ridden a bike in a century.

I think recall legislation is now. Mandatory. These politicians work for us.. We don’t work for them. As such, as their employers, we need to have the power to fire them. Furthermore, very bad monitary choices must become accountable to these employees. Personally, professionally. Professional negligence, just like any Doctor, Lawyer, Accountant, Chiropractor, etc, is held.

Oh without a doubt climate change worshippers are the biggest hypocrites on the planet and Rachel (eat your cake on the bus) Notley will never give up her suv. These are the things the Wildrose needs to be pounding and shaming them with.

SERIOUSLY IS ANYONE SURPRISED.Canada needs to be able to recall politicians that go against the betterment of the country.Who the hell do they think they are.Climate Barbie is just as bad.

C’mon folks, you can’t have these law makers, tax takers and home breakers taking public transport like the po folk, their very lives maybe in jeopardy. Although first you’d have to recognize them, and hey if your invisible,well………

No problem at all, just keep on taxing & voila! carbon emissions just evaporate in thin air, just take a look at the smirky smile on Notley’s face after she just stepped out of a high end SUV, either an Envoy or Escalade, nothing but the best for these hypocrites.

You too, David. Traffic has picked up again, but it is sadly due to another round of company evacuations.

@deb GRAUPNER….Can’t argue with you there. What a shame what they are doing to Calgary. Edmonton has always had a commy like tinge to it, but Calgary?? Are they just trying to turn it into a wild west ghost town?

Deb if I get down to cow town to visit relatives I would love to take you for coffee or lunch. My bucket list includes meeting some of my favourite posters and as many diners, drive ins and dives that I can find., and MERRY CHRISTMAS to you and your family.

Merry Christmas to you as well MONGREL. Traffic still at low tide up north?

Have to laugh with the introduction. As a matter of fact I have bought my new runners just this past couple of days.

They were not quite necessary as my current runners still have miles left on them. However, I did not want to buy them in February when they have a carbon price on them due to all the carbon derived synthetics that compose them.

So yes, the next 11 days is the best time to buy those runners, walkers, or hikers.

Pigs at the taxpayers trough ! Sorry if I offended any muzzies . Not !

David White – they will blame us, the victims. They are back stabbers and liars of the first order.

Have I a story for you! When my local school has a “Green Day”, where the children are to walk or bike to school and the teachers, vice-principals and principal are to lead by example, those teachers, vice principals and principal rent a parking lot just down the street for a day and then pretend they walked or biked into work! Of course, some students catch them, spread the information and respect is lost, except by those students who think it’s admirable to lie to people and get away with it. Our future leaders?

I just saw the ghost of Tooker Gomberg cruising by on his bicycle, what a good little ndper. Don Iverson has proven that he has taken the meaning of moron to a whole new level. He, numbskull Nenshi and green slime Gregor in Vancouver….what leadership. Frumpy Shannon Philips is a blatant liar, and Nothead IS a witch. Clueless fucks, all of them, and this whole fiasco WILL crash down the road. We will all be in ruin but the excuses and lying will be of interest. One can only imagine the degree of lies and blame when they have destroyed us, and in the process destroy themselves.

There is only one thing I would like see happen with busses and Notleyyyy.
