Notley, NDP live on ‘Fantasy Island’

NDP supporters, why don’t you get with the facts and reality?

Dear editor,

Re: Letter to the editor L. Soucy

NDP supporters, why don’t you get with the facts and reality? Seems like the only ones who support the NDP are those who have government and union jobs that have job security and pay raises no matter how bad things are in the real world. All that’s missing is Ricardo Montalban saying “Welcome to Fantasy Island, where NDP fantasies abound.”

Notley has hired consultants from Ontario that helped to drive Ontario into massive debt and job loss. For example, forcing their power supply to wind-generated power that has increased costs by 88 per cent or more. Companies shut down or moved out of Canada. Then they blamed Stephen Harper and the federal Conservatives for their resulting job losses. They then voted Trudeau and the Liberals in. Trudeau’s only concern is how many selfies can he be in today. His Natural Resources minister Jim Carr is a professional oboist who played for the Winnipeg symphony. Good for the Liberals because they can blow wind and not say anything.

To you NDP supporters, fact, Gil McGowan and the Alberta Federation of Labour had all kinds of input to Bill 6 and were even invited into the Legislature to hold their propaganda campaigns to the media, Farmers and ranchers were never allowed any input on Bill 6 before it was written and given first reading. On Dec. 3, 2015 a civil law-abiding rally against Bill 6 was held outside the Legislature. Leduc NDP MLA Shaye Anderson posted on the Internet that it was a “violent and brutal rally.” Fact is, he was not even there and later admitted that fact. Then on Dec. 8, 2015 Anderson and the rest of the NDP MLAs sat and laughed at people’s concerns about Bill 6. They acted worse than two year olds. The NDP then invoked closure on Bill 6. People from across Alberta who were present in the Legislature gallery for the afternoon sitting can testify to those facts. The NDP did not stop the legislation and consult with ranchers and farmers. Instead, on Dec. 9, 2015, Bill 6 was passed. Only after Bill 6 was passed and due to massive protest did the NDP say that they would allow input. Normal democracies take input before putting things into law!

Over 61 per cent of the vote (in the last provincial election) was for Wildrose and PC (both conservative parties) and less than 33 per cent was for the NDP. It was only due to the vote splitting that the NDP got in. So to the NDP “derriere-kissers” don’t claim that NDP policies have broad support of Albertans, or that they have consulted widely with the public on many issues.

So what’s next? Probably, converting Redford’s penthouse suite to a daycare and having it staffed by a bunch of foreign workers given high-paying union jobs.

As someone stated, “Notley’s NDP government is like a two year old running around, banging a drum and screaming ‘I am so great, I am so great.’” Then they actually believe they are, as Notley smirks and states, “It’s what Albertans want.”

So I guess Albertans can remember Trudeau’s words, “Just hang in there.” So while Liberals federally and NDP provincially run their path of destruction, we can console ourselves by listening to Alan Jackson’s song, “Here in the Real World.”
