Rachel Notley Admitted She Fibbed About the Carbon Tax During Election 2015

Since 2017 we’ve had a carbon tax imposed upon us in Alberta. January 1st of this year,2018 it increased by 50%.  She now admits she lied to us during the election in 2015 about carbon tax

Notley said as part the 2015 election campaign her party ran “on the fact we need to take climate change seriously.” But Notley acknowledged a carbon tax was not mentioned at that time, something opposition critics have focused on.

“We just talked about climate change, and most people understand that pricing carbon is a fundamental part of addressing climate change,” said Notley.

The thing is she never mentioned anything about a carbon during the campaign therefore she has no mandate to impose it on us.  Rachel Notley and her wrecking crew are destroying the province. They believe they’re doing the right thing by imposing this job killing tax.  It makes everything more expensive and more jobs will be lost. What more has the Notley crew not been quite honest about?  Notley and her wrecking crew just simply can’t be trusted.

Alberta’s Economy Not As Rosy As The NDP Wants To Portray

Rachel Notley’s NDP wants you to believe that our economy in Alberta is improving but that’s really not the case. Finance Minister Ceci claims in his fiscal update that after a two year recession the province emerged with a 4% growth due to hiring freeze in the public sector and no raises in the unions.

Ceci said Alberta had emerged with four per cent growth from two years of recession and the government now intended to reduce spending, in part through a public-sector hiring freeze and a push for no raises in negotiations with unions.

He also tried to portray as good news that our deficit for 2017-18 would be $10.3 billion instead $10.4 billion what they estimated in the budget last spring.

The move follows Finance Minister Joe Ceci’s Tuesday release of the province’s second-quarter fiscal update, which sees the deficit for 2017-18 projected at $10.3 billion — a slight improvement from the spring budget’s estimated $10.4 billion.

Oh and by the end of the year our debt (drum roll), will up to a measly $42 billion.  Isn’t that great?

He said the NDP government is continuing Alberta’s long-standing reliance on resource revenues, while high levels of borrowing are driving up the provincial debt, expected to top $42 billion by the end of this year.

Wow, everything is coming up roses except for Rating agency DBRS Ltd, one of three credit agencies, just downgraded out credit rating again from AA+ to AA which is not good.

Rating agency DBRS Ltd. announced Wednesday that it had downgraded Alberta’s rating from AA (high) to AA, while maintaining a negative outlook for the province.

The other two agencies S&P Global Ratings and Moody’s have downgraded our credit rating before, that being in May S&P gave us a rating A+ down two notches from the rating they gave us before.

The most recent downgrade came from S&P in May, as it lowered Alberta’s rating two notches, from AA to A+.

So despite all the rhetoric the NDP is spewing that they want to believe the Alberta economy is not in good shape.

Is the oil and gas industry booming? No!

Is investment coming back to the province? No!

Are businesses booming and hiring? No!

The fact is the NDP are not telling us the truth and the longer they’re in office the more they are wrecking the province.

Conservative Supporters, It’s Time to Get our Act Together

I know I haven’t posted in a long, long time.  I’ve had a lot going on in my life the passed few months. I finally had my dental implants replaced on top earlier and am still going through the process and healing, was busy with family issues, gardening and other things.  I will do a separate post about the dental implants and how that’s going but this post is really about how we conservative supporters both in Alberta and federally get our act together and start to work hard towards defeating Rachel Notley and her wrecking and Justin Trudeau and his cabal in the up coming elections in 2019.  I know it seems like still a long ways off but really it isn’t, both elections will be here before we know it and there is much to do. It takes time to prepare.  The Alberta provincial election will be in the spring of 2019 and the federal election will be October 21, 2019.

Both Notley and Trudeau have done so much damage we cannot tolerate another term of either of them.  We cannot allow either one of them to get re-elected.  If you look the latest polls, they look fairly well for conservatives both federally and provincially but we must take the polls as a grain of salt and not rest on our laurels. To take things for granted will not get Jason Kenny’s UCP or Andrew Scheer’s CPC elected.  Both of them need every grassroot conservative soldier on the ground to work hard starting now!

Each one of us can do something.  Join your local electoral district riding association and get involved. Call the UCP HQ and or CPC HQ ask what you can do to help. Maybe you can knock on doors or make phone calls. Or maybe you can help get the vote out on election day.  You can get the message out by speaking directly to your friends, neighbors, co-workers, and relatives.  Call into the talk shows. Start a blog, get on Periscope, Youtube, etc.  Whenever there is a rally near you, try and attend and show your support. The fact is we must all do our part.  We cannot sit back, do nothing, and hope that everything works out. If each one of us do something we will win, if we don’t well you can easily predict the outcome.

We have to be prepared for unions, special interest groups etc. that spending a lot of money trying to prevent Jason Kenny’s UCP and Andrew Scheer’s CPC from gaining office.  We have to be ready to counteract.

Don’t forget also we have the media against us.  They hate conservatives and will actively campaign against us in favor of their party and leader on the left. Be ready for the lies, the spin, the out right fake news.  We’re going to have anticipate it and be ready to immediately fight back with the truth getting it out there and making it go viral.

I think for all you Ontarians, you have an eletction next year.  You have your chance to get rid of Kathleen Wynne. You must not let grass grow under your feet if you want to defeat her. You must get busy. I’m sure unions etc. will be in full force in Ontario as well to make sure Patrick Brown’s PC’s don’t elected.

So conservatives, gird your loins and get ready for battle! We have to take the country back! Don’t be afraid to stand up for your province and your country. Don’t be afraid to show your patriotism!

 

More Albertans On Welfare

 

 

 

 

Rachel Notley and her wrecking crew say they’re making life better for Albertans but the Calgary Sun reported yesterday that there are more Albertans receiving welfare cheques today than in 2015 .  In fact  the number of those collecting welfare is now a whopping 54,374 recipents,  20,000 more than just two years ago when Notley’s wrecking crew assumed office.

Welfare claimants have gone skyward to 54,374 at the start of this year, around 20,000 higher than two years ago.

The line is going straight up and there’s no sign of a plateau.

We’re talking welfare, the last stop, where you go when you no longer have a job and you can’t find another job and the EI runs out and you’ve got no money coming in and you can depend only on yourself.

Is it any wonder with a lot of energy companies leaving Alberta going else where and also a lot of other businesses closing their doors?  The carbon tax, other tax hikes, minimum wage hikes and regulations that they’ve imposed all contribute to this dilemma.

Making life better for us they say? But then again math is hard for NDPers. They’re actually making it more difficult and expensive for businesses and individuals to survive and thrive. It seems like they’re living in some alternate universe and not in the real world. They don’t really understand what real Albertans are going through right now.

We used to have the Alberta advantage, well that’s gone now. Will they change course and bring at least some of that advantage back?  Nope,they have no sense of reality.  They’re stuck in their la la land with their pixey dust and unicorn reality.

We can only hope they get resoundly defeated in two years and that new government can fix all the damage and bring back the Alberta advantage. It can’t come soon enough for me!

 

Alberta Budget 2017

Well the NDP have released budget 2017. What to make of it? Rick Bell from Calgary Sun sums it up perfectly.

Derek Fildebrandt from the Wildrose’s response.

Here is Jason Kenny, candidate for leader the PC’s

 

We Are Now All “Sewer Rats”

 

If you’re an average everyday Albertan who like the way the province used to be before 2015, you are now a “Sewer Rat” according to the NDP.

This will help the NDP as much as it did when Hillary Clinton called regular Americans who were Trump supports ” deplorables.”  That sure turned out well for her now didn’t it?

I will wear the title of “Sewer Rat” as a badge of honour.

Make the Most of Your Time

The other day I heard a song on the radio by Canadian country music singer Dean Brody.  That song was called “Time”  It’s a song about how we put things off ignoring the real important things in our lives like spending more quality time with our friends and family, noticing that each day that goes by time vanishes before our very eyes. Then we wake up and realize it’s too late.  We take time for granted.

That song made me think of what’s happening today.  There are so many distractions.  Whether it’s our cell phones, social media, video games, television etc.  It’s so easy to set more important things aside like spending more quality time with friends and family, even neglecting our work I hate to say.

I’ve noticed especially when we’re on social media we tend to get caught up in it and before you know it, we’ve  have wasted valuable time.  I will admit I’m guilty of doing that.

We need to realize that each day that does go by we can’t get it back.   We can’t climb into a time machine,(at least not that I know of) to say last Wednesday and relive it.  It’s gone forever.

We need to assess how we spend our time, set priorities. Time is precious.  Let none of us have any regrets.  The song says it all.

Time lyrics

[Verse 1]
A gang of kids on our peddle bikes
In a dusty town, way to ride
To the general store for popeye cigarettes
Class of ’99
Yeah we lived, laughed, loved and cried
Took for granted that those days would never end
Living like that yearbook picture wouldn’t fade
And some standing right beside me, I might never see again

[Chorus]
The trouble is
You think you have time
You think tomorrow’s always coming down the line
And then one day
You wake up and you find
The trouble is you thought you had time

[Verse 2]
Suit and tie, and a fancy job
Big old house, two car garage
He works hard for his wife and his son
An empty seat at t-ball games
It’s just a sacrifice he’ll make
He’ll make it up, next weekend comes along
Years go by and that day comes too soon
That boy goes off to college, and you stand in his empty room

[Chorus]
The trouble is
You think you have time
You think tomorrow’s always coming down the line
And then one day
You wake up and you find
The trouble is you thought you had time

[Verse 3]
Shotgun shells and a tackle box
On the floorboard of a truck
Morning sun burning fog off a lake
Teenage girl with her grandad
He takes her fishing but he feels bad
That she can’t take her eyes off that ‘ol Facebook page
But someday soon, who knows how long
She’ll look up from that phone and he’ll be gone

[Chorus]
The trouble is
You think you have time
You think tomorrow’s always coming down the line
And then one day
You wake up and you find
The trouble is you thought you had time
The trouble is you think you have time
