Rachel Notley’s response to Albertans has been the same on every issue. She bullies her way through – disregarding the voices of the people she is responsible to.
Robin Luff, Calgary East, was kicked out of the NDP caucus last November after making allegations of bullying at the hands of NDP leadership, describing a “culture of fear and intimidation,” and taking issue with members being required to vote with the leader, having questions written on their behalf and being restricted on what they can say in the House.” That hardly inspires confidence.
The carbon tax was forced on us, including a tax on natural gas, which is carbon free.
In bully fashion, Notley laughs at those who oppose any issue. I really don’t have room to list all them all here. Notley is a dictator.
Royalty reviews and a discouraging corporate tax helped Notley collapse the oil industry to a skeleton. Industries moved elsewhere.
When she bombed the coal industry in Alberta, she eliminated the cheapest power source in Canada. Yet Canada imports coal from Colombia. Compare China’s 700 coal plants to Alberta’s puny 18.
Notley has not supported Alberta’s workers or major industries; 202,000 workers are unemployed. Notley is not working for Albertans.
Notley’s first directive to her rep in Washington DC, Hon. Rob Merrifield: “stand down from lobbying for KXL.” Without her betrayal, Keystone would have been built by now. Then, she supported Trudeau walking away from Northern Gateway pipeline. History shows she has been an anti-pipeline activist for decades. This premier is a traitor to Alberta.
Premier Notley has not been working for Albertans, no matter what she tells you now that she is on the election trail. Her performance during election, is in stark contract to her first three years in office. Suddenly she is “promoting pipelines” with a “working for you” slogan! This is political election blab! If you believe that, you haven’t been paying attention.
NDP candidates are using the Conservative party colour blue as the background in their election signs. Suddenly ashamed of their traditional orange?
This party is deceitful. The NDP party will tell citizens anything they think will help get votes. Their election promises total some $12.7 billion. And this with over $30 billion in debt.
Wake up, Alberta! Rachel Notley is not premier material.
