We got saddled with Stelmach because Liberals and NDP signed up for PC memberships and voted. Now we have union members signing up as Conservatives to vote down proposed bills. They are using Alinsky's rules for radicals, and laughing about it. What they are scared about is the Wildrose Alliance, because they have not been able to infiltrate that party YET.
Also Saturday, one of the most heated moments of the convention erupted during debate over a resolution that would have allowed union members to stop their dues from funding political ad campaigns. Supporters referred to the union-backed television ads seen during the 2008 provincial election, in which an ominous voice repeatedly whispers "No Plan" to criticize the Tory government. They said union members should have the power to opt-out of funding such campaigns in the future if they disagree with the message. But a group of union supporters took issue with the motion, at one point yelling "out of order" several times to drown out proponents. "This is a wedge issue, an issue that divides us at a time when this party is under attack from all sides," said an opponent. The resolution was narrowly defeated.
This resolution should have passed with flying colours if the Alberta PC's were actually Conservatives. They are not.
How about those HRC's in Alberta? The one that put Ezra through hell for over a year and then backed down when public opinion turned against them. I have for the first time in my life emailed the Premier of my province to tell him that HRC's need to be erased. So, what does the party do?
That debate was followed by another contentious proposal that called for the removal of a section of the Alberta Human Rights, Citizenship and Multiculturalism Act. Supporters said the section, which deals with the publishing of discriminatory material, gives too much power to people who are "easily offended" and infringes on freedom of expression. The motion was defeated after Education Minister Dave Hancock got up to defend the current legislation. "Posting a sign that says 'No Person of Colour Allowed on Premises' isn't appropriate in our province," he said. "This section (of the act) isn't used very often, but it's an important symbol of our society."
Dave Hancock, the hippies are calling, you left your opinions in the 60's and they want them back. Are you kidding me? Is this an example of what the Alberta Conservatives have become? My God, are they serious? Are they really that stupid? Are they really allowing the union fakers to dictate their agenda? Maybe all Conservatives should sign up for NDP memberships so that we can dictate the NDP policies. That would be a hoot! Can you imagine us voting on NDP policy? They seem to think it's okay for them to vote on Conservative policy, so it's only fair for us to do the same to them!
The unions and lefties are now dictating to our Premier and his party. I wonder if the Alberta PC's and their far left buddies at rabble, are going to be shocked when they lose the next election to the Wildrose Alliance? They shouldn't be, given their lefty positions on everything.
It is said that PM Harper does not suffer fools lightly, have you noticed that he never actually talks to Stelmach. He gets along better with Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Williams than Stelmach.....what does that tell you?
The Alberta lefties can't win any seats provincially so they dishonestly sign up as "fake" Conservatives and hijack our agenda. Lefties, no morals, no principles.
