She is a UN lawyer who appears to want a global government. She is as arrogant as Mulcair. She is dangerous to Alberta's way of life.
Ezra on the new NDP leader. Mulcair is a citizen of France....what is it with Quebec citizens Dion and Mulcair, can't they only be loyal to Canada?
Mulcair is no friend of Alberta. Interestingly enough, it appears that Alison Redford is also no friend of Alberta either. It seems that she applied to become a citizen of South Africa, and was denied. I wonder why they denied our UN, lefty Premier citizenship?
All of this doesn't surprise me coming from Redford. She spent some time working at the UN so she is of that kind of mindset.In the comments at Chasing Apple Pie, we find this little gem:
The Secretary General of the United Nations Boutros Boutros-Ghali appointed and assigned Alison Redford to a post in the United Nations as a special legal adviser.Danielle Smith was right in calling her out on it. These are the kind of things we need to be alerted about.
Throughout the 1990s, Redford worked as a technical adviser on constitutional and legal reform issues in various parts of Africa for the European Union, the Commonwealth Secretariat, the Canadian Government and the Government of Australia. Her work in Africa focused on human rights litigation, developing education programs and policy reform with respect to gender issues.
Smith says she doesn’t want to change the character of Alberta.
“I don’t think we need to be fixed,” says Smith, calling this election “a fight for the heart and soul of the province.”
She thinks Redford “doesn’t like Alberta all that much. She doesn’t like who we are. Do we need to be changed? Do we need Ms. Redford to change us? I think the answer is a resounding no.”
In an interview with Macleans magazine in December of 2011 Alison Redford openly admitted that she sought and was denied citizenship in South Africa. Redford made her way back to Alberta and not by choice. Isn't it nice to have a person seeking the position of Premier for the province of Alberta would rather be some place else? Their denial is our loss.How committed is Red Ali to Alberta? Is she just an opportunist? I know that she is out of step with what I want for Alberta. I emailed my MLA about getting rid of the Human Rights Commissions, but fat chance of that happening under Ali's watch, she is a UN supporter, and loves human rights commissions.
On a positive note, Danielle Smith's Wildrose party has released the first part of their family plan.
They are going to give tax credits to families with children under the age of 18. It's an interesting proposal, reminds me of the Conservative federal tax credit that the Liberals labeled the "beer and popcorn" credit. The Wildrose is speaking to families, while the PC's are still trying to make up for their HUGE blunder with the "nomeet" committee. Too little too late.
They are also pandering to the greenies with their money for the oil sands clean up. Hint: The oil companies are already reclaiming the land, and if lawyer Alison cared to check, it's a requirement of development, and already factored into the oil companies budgets. No need to throw around taxpayers money to gain a few green votes.
The PC's are demoralized. (Notice how Alison never uses the word Conservative?) I got a door knocker for my PC MLA tonight. When I told him I was switching my vote, he looked down at his list and just left. As I was closing the door, I looked across the street, and I saw the Wildrose candidate, he was running from door to door. I snagged two signs off of him, and away he went. The difference in the energy was very noticeable. Alberta Spring....how the lefties will hate it!
