Quebec’s move to shut down its oil sector couln’t come at a worst time for the country as Trump’s tariffs are starting to put a…

    CTV News uses NDP attack line against Jason Kenney

    The NDP has been going after Jason Kenney regarding gay kids, according to the NDP Jason Kenney wants to “out gay kids.” The entire issues stems from Jason Kenney wanting parents to know if their kids are joining a gay straight alliance in Alberta schools. But now even CTV news is spreading NDP fear mongering. No, this isn't a partisan NDP newsletter. It's an actual @CTVNews headline.

    NDP MLA claims the government is creating good jobs, immediately gets called out

    Stephanie McLean an NDP MLA from Alberta recently posted on social media how the “government” is creating good jobs, and diversifying the economy.

    Catherine McKenna claims the environment is the economy, but what about Alberta ?

    For 2 years now Liberals have berated us with global warming hysteria. The claim of course is the same, man made global warming is real and if we don’t tax it we are going to see more hurricanes and floods. McKenna who appeared on CTV’s Question Period recently made this stunning allegation. But if you are going to say the environment is the economy the Alberta NDP government has had a totally different experience. Rebel’s Gunn Reid pointed that “The unemployment rate jumped 40% since Notley took power and began to govern on this same moronic premise. Evidence, schmevidence.” The unemployment rate jumped 40% since Notley took power and began…

    Rachel Notley to push Alberta debt to $32 Billion

    Things in Alberta are going from bad to worse in a hurry, this means that the debt will reach an astonishing $32 Billion by the end of 2016. In his First Quarter fiscal update, Alberta Finance Minister Joe Ceci says the Fort McMurray wildfire is adding roughly $500 million to Alberta’s deficit. It now stands at $10.9 billion. Alberta’s debt will reach $32 billion by the end of this year, and could be as high as $58 billion by the end of the decade. However, Ceci says the Government is sticking to its action plan, and won’t resort to cuts and austerity programming. [via]

    The NDP is going out of its way to destroy Jason Kenny

    First, the government took the unusual step of asking the province’s chief electoral officer to investigate his pre-campaign fundraising. On Monday, the legislature ethics committee voted to limit leadership campaign spending to 15 per cent of a new ceiling on party spending for a general election. That would work out to about $330,000 for Kenney, and all other PC candidates, for campaigns stretching from Oct. 1 to voting day on March 18, 2017. “I’m flattered that the NDP seems to be spending so much time focused on an unofficial candidate for the third party’s leadership,” he says.

    Graham Thomson: NDP government behaving like PC government of old

    Not that voters, particularly those in opposition ridings, would be in favour of the NDP’s plan in the middle of an economic recession. As Progressive Conservative MLA Richard Starke said: “To me, the tone-deafness of this proposal is staggering.” In fact, I’d suspect constituents in ridings represented by NDP members wouldn’t be keen on the idea of taxpayers pumping millions of dollars to political parties. The three major parties spent a total of $7.2 million in the 2015 election, so we’re talking a significant amount being rebated back to them. The NDP members on the committee argued they’re just trying to get “big money” out of elections by levelling the…

    NDP government may launch investigation against Jason Kenny for political fundraising

The NDP wants Alberta’s chief electoral officer to investigate Progressive Conservative leadership hopeful Jason Kenney’s political fundraising activities. The NDP says the review should also include Unite Alberta, Kenney’s provincial political organization. Kenney, who is a federal Conservative MP, announced last month that he is seeking to rally conservative voters in Alberta in a new party to defeat the NDP in the 2019 provincial election. [via]

    Notley cracking down on ATV’s

    If you live in Alberta and love your ATV’s look out because Rachel Notley sees what you’re doing and is going to crack down on your fun. The Alberta NDP are ready to pick another fight with Alberta farmers and ranchers but this time, the NDP are ready to go to war with hunters, outdoor enthusiasts, motorsports fans and ATV dealers. Putting age restrictions on ATVs will infuriate farmers and hutterites who use ATVs as farm tools. Age restrictions will also render the smaller machines many ATV dealers carry nearly unsellable. New laws would also mean directing limited rural police resources towards the millions of acres of Alberta crown land…

    Liberals on the wrong side of the economy, Canada suffers biggest monthly GDP decline since 2009

    The Trudeau government has literally sent Canada back to 2009. That is in monthly GDP. Even though the Alberta wildfire that struck Fort Mac Murray was devastating the Liberals are still not allowing any new pipeline projects from starting siting “environmental assessments” need to be completed, this is nothing but stalling Canada’s most resourceful product, oil. On Friday, Statistics Canada’s latest reading for real gross domestic product showed a contraction for the month of 0.6 per cent, a number that revealed the extent of the economic fallout caused by the blazes that roared through the heart of oilsands country. The number, Canada’s worst monthly figure since real GDP fell 0.8…

    Left wing politicians are killing the oil industry as ConocoPhillips Canada plans to cut 300 jobs

    Canada’s leaders are killing the oil industry to fulfill a green agenda that has not been proven to be real. As Trudeau and NDP leaders in Alberta continue to ramp up the “carbon tax” rhetoric, real Canadians are being squeezed out of jobs. ConocoPhillips Canada said Friday it will lay off up to 300 workers in September — most of them in Calgary — in the latest blow to the local economy amid dramatic downsizing in the industry. Employees were notified Thursday the company will shed 250 to 300 jobs, though spokesman Rob Evans said company officials have not decided what positions will be hit. The layoffs come amid estimates the oil and gas sector has shed 44,000…
