Alberta Election May 2015


Recommended Posts

Not likely... at least not a major bump. I don't see Alberta changing their federal vote much. This was a very local (Alberta) issue with the PCs and Wild Rose.

I tend to agree with Alberta proper, but this combined with Trudeau's falling numbers might lend plausibility to the Federal NDP in Western Canada (and rural Ontario) as being the true anti-Harper vote......displacing any notion of the Trudeau Liberals having even a sniff at forming Government.....unless junior partner to the NDP......which Trudeau has already quashed.

I'm not a socialist. Therefore I don't give to the poor. Let the poor help themselves. I provide to charity. Maybe you can ask them for a car.

At any rate. I won't retire to Canada. We may keep a condo here but will settle somewhere hot.

My wife thinks AB was due for a change. She doesn't believe AB is socialist just sending a message to the conservative parties.

You know there's big spiders where it's hot, right?

The NDP is the only party that's the same provincially and federally. It's certainly good advertising, but Rachel is going to have a lot of eyes on her for 6 months.

Without a doubt, but the Alberta NDP Government won't be able to destroy change the Province in just 6 months.....combined with the Wynne Government and Trudeau's "performance" I'm gaining further confidence that the Federal NDP will remain the Official Opposition this Fall

No Mulcair will be PM. He will destroy the Senate. Make Zionism illegal. Desyroy the monarchy. Increase Muslim immigration ten fold. Time to leave Canada. Canada is turning into a socialist state. Like the Soviet Union.

The NDP will try to make it illegal for us to remove our wealth from the country.

Slow down. They're not anywhere near that bad.

Unfortunately, the NDP have formed government in an economy that has been run into the ground by the PCs...

A decade+ of huge oil revenues and a deficit to show for it.

not to worry. The NDP will increase the sales tax along with the debt. People get the government they deserve. NDP was no good in Ontario or BC. Will they be any better in AB? Time will tell.

In good news the party I do support the WRP did very well and is now Official Opposition. Not that it matters as the NDP has a dictatorship.

The question in need of answering now; does the Federal NDP now get a bounce? On paper, though I disagree staunchly with his party, Mulcair has more credibility than Trudeau......will this translate into actually support nationally?

?

He couldn't overcome the double whammy of disgust with Alison Redford combined with $50 oil.

The NDP obviously don't have the former, but it will be interesting to watch them in the next few months trying to contend with the latter.

The NDP calls the oil sands. The tar sands. I wonder when they'll shut them down? After all they think they're dirty and abhorred. So if they don't shut them down they're hypocrites.

The NDP has a dictatorship in AB. Soon Mulcair will sweep into power in Canada. As most of Alberta is now NDP orange.

I wonder when the NDP will make it illegal to move our wealth. When will they increase taxes? By how much?

The socialists have won Canada. It's over. Get out while you can. Canada will soon be like Cuba, China, North Korea, Laos, Vietnam and Venezuela. Canada is now a socialist state. It's over. I hope the socialists will let us leave Canada with our wealth in a few years.

I am very scared of this. The NDP will increase Muslim immigration ten fold.

The NDP WILL raise taxes to give money to the poor. My money to the poor who do nothing to help themselves. Disgusting.

I started with nothing. Worked hard in university to get a good education. Worked even harder out of school. Now I make quite good money and the government wants more of my money to give to the poor who do nothing to help themselves. The poor deserve nothing if they don't try to better themselves.

Disgusting. It's the main reason I'm taking my wealth out of Canada. Even if it means I need to sneak it out because the NDP makes it illegal to move money around.

I wonder how much of this political shift is due to the influx of so many new people into Alberta over the last decade? Between eastern Canadians, British Columbians, younger people and elsewhere it was kind of inevitable.

So I guess it's only a matter of time until pot, sex in the streets and taxing the shit out of million/billionaires will be legal in Alberta and BC will be surrounded by narco-states.

It's weird how things turn out.
