Calgary Liberal candidate: ‘Alberta should fit in or f&$# off’

“Sir Winston Churchill said it more eloquently, however his message was clear. Fit in or f#$% off. We Alberta need to start fitting in. Because quite frankly, we are not as superior as our government touts.”

The acclaimed Liberal candidate in Calgary Nose Hill has a blunt message for voters – Alberta should do better to fit into Canada or “f&$# off.”

Jessica Dale Walker made the comment in a May 2020 blog.

“Canada owes Alberta nothing,” she wrote.

“’We’ have made our bed consistently with conservative governments that have never prepared for the future. They’ve mismanaged boom money and made cuts during busts.”

“Sir Winston Churchill said it more eloquently, however his message was clear. Fit in or f&$# off. We need Alberta to start fitting in. Because quite frankly, we are not as superior as our government touts.”

The Conservative candidate, incumbent Michelle Rempel-Garner, lashed back Thursday night.

“It shouldn’t surprise anyone that Justin Trudeau has acclaimed a candidate that believes Alberta should ‘fit in or f&$# off’ and that ‘Canada owes Alberta nothing,’ when he has:

  • Ignored the Alberta jobs crisis;
  • Ruined the investment climate in Alberta with job-killing bills like C-69 and C-48;
  • Failed to fix the problematic Fiscal Stabilization Program when Alberta needed it;
  • Appointed his own Senators instead of democratically-elected Alberta Senators; and
  • Failed to fight for Keystone XL expansion.

“At a time when the country should be coming together to fight the pandemic and focus on the economic recovery – once again the Liberals choose to divide Canadians and Albertans,” said Rempel-Garner in a statement.

“I’m calling on Justin Trudeau to condemn the comments from his Liberal candidate and explain why this Alberta bashing is welcome in his party. He would never tolerate a candidate saying any other province should fit in or ‘f&$# off’, or that Canada owes other provinces nothing, so why does he tolerate it for Alberta? 

“Conservatives know that a strong Alberta means a strong Canada. We recognize the vast contributions Alberta has made to Confederation, and the inequities of the equalization program, which is why we’ve committed to an equalization reimbursement for the province. 

“Unlike Justin Trudeau and his Calgary candidate – Canada’s Conservatives will always stand up for Albertans.”

Dale Walker is still trying to collect enough signatures in the riding to qualify for the September 20 ballot.

True North reported Dale Walker suggested on her personal Twitter account last year those who were the first to take the then-newly-developed COVID-19 vaccine were “entitled” and “guinea pigs.” 

“The reply to those is as follows: I chose to allow the entitled to flock for the vaccine like they demanded to be the guinea pigs, that way should there be problems those with brains were left behind,” Dale-Walker tweeted on November 23, 2020.

    Actually, as crass as she is, she’s right. However She did err on one thing. We’ve tried for 116 years to “Fit in” and have been rejected and ignored and even derided and insulted and abused in that entire time. So I’m all in favour of taking door # 2 this time. If you have the Maverick option in your riding then vote for them, and in 2023 vote Wildrose!

    Dear Ms. Jessica Hyphen,

    If you are so keen on a Laurentianist government, why don’t you just mount your broomstick and fly back to d’Ottawa. The unmitigated gall of this ‘woman'(?) and the Prime Mistake of Kanadahar, that Alberta should just ‘bend over take it with a smile, and ask for more’, further demonstrates how out of touch socialists, er Lieberals, (but I repeat myself) are. Jessica Hyphen, don’t go away mad, just go away!

    Let’s go WIPA and Maverick Party!

    The problem being the only Federal conservatives standing up for Alberta are Michelle Rempel-Garner, Pierre Pollieve, and othe Alberta MP’s. O’Toole’s conservatives have only promised to be less antagonistic towards Alberta. Time to seriously consider alternate parties even though they will not form government because the Federal NDP, and the Federal Liberals want to kill the rest of Alberta’s economy while having us pay for all the extra services back east, and the Federal Conservatives, while supportive of our economy, they like the status quo. Time for an independant Alberta with or with out Canada!

    Fit in with Canada?

    What’s Canada? According to Liberals, Canada is the world’s first post nation state. So “fit in” and “F off” are actually the same choice. We can fit in better by leaving confederation.

    Instead of the upper and lower Canadas, we can have an Independent Canada and an Idiot Communist Canada.

    “Since Trudeau’s Liberal mouthpiece has articulated his contempt for Alberta so well…

    A Wildrose Government WILL hold a referendum on Alberta becoming an independent sovereign nation.

    Bank on it.”

NDP support holding strong across Alberta

That’s enough of a lead to form a majority government, say pollsters.

Published

The UCP would be gutted and Rachel Notley back as premier if an election were held today, an exclusive new poll done for the Western Standard shows.

The Mainstreet Research poll shows Notley’s NDP currently has the support of 41% of Albertans with Jason Kenney’s UCP well back at 25%

That’s enough of a lead to form a majority government, say pollsters.

The upstart Wildrose Independence Party collect 11% support in the new poll, with 5% siding with the Alberta Party, with the Liberals and Greens at 1% each. A total of 14% of voters were undecided.

Wildrose leader Paul Hinman polls best among people who are refusing to get vaccinated. When they were asked, 34% chose Wildrose, 29% for the UCP and only 2% for the NDP.

If the undecided are removed from the poll, the NDP checks in with 45%, the UCP with 29%, the WIP with 13% and the AP with 6%

In that poll, the NDP is also leading in Alberta’s two major cities. In Edmonton, the NDP has 62% support with the UCP at 21% In Calgary, the NDP leads with 48% support and the UCP at 31%.

Rural areas seem split. Northern rural areas favour Kenney 34% to 29% for Notley. Southern rural areas like Notley at 32% with Kenney at 29%.

“Things are looking pretty grim for Kenney,” said Mainstreet CEO and President Quito Maggi.

“It’s 18 months until the next election, and that can be an eternity, but numbers in this realm for the better part of a year, with no positive movement, shows the trouble he is in.”

Maggi said he was a little surprised by the lead of Notley in Calgary, normally a Conservative bastion.

“It speaks of the personal unpopularity of Jason Kenney himself. The policies of the NDP probably aren’t supported in Calgary but they are willing to vote for the candidate that will defeat Kenney,” he said.

Maggi noted Kenney is now getting it from both sides of the political spectrum and the WIP is taking enough to leave Notley with a majority victory. He predicted an NDP victory would only be by one or two seats.

The analysis in this report is based on the results of a survey conducted on October 12-13 2021 among a sample of 935 adults, 18 years of age or older, living in Alberta. The survey was conducted using automated telephone interviews (Smart IVR). Respondents were interviewed on landlines and cellular phones. The survey is intended to represent the voting population in Alberta. 

The margin of error for the poll is +/- 3.2% at the 95% confidence level. Mar- gins of error are higher in each subsample. 

Totals may not add up 100% due to rounding.

People not getting COVID jabs a diverse group

Deonandan predicted Canada will not achieve “herd immunity” against COVID-19 until at least 91% of eligible citizens are fully vaccinated. The rate is currently 81%, according to the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Canadians against getting a COVID-19 jab are not just a group of crazed, anti-vaxxers, says a leading epidemiologist.

Four million Canadians who’ve declined a COVID-19 are an assorted lot, said the executive editor of the Interdisciplinary Journal Of Health Sciences .

“The unvaccinated are a diverse group,” Dr. Raywat Deonandan, of the University of Ottawa, told Blacklock’s Reporter.

“They include the hardcore anti-vaxxers. They include the vaccine-hesitant who are just afraid of the vaccine.”

“They include those who want to get vaccinated, but can’t get time off work or get child care. And they include the apathetic. The apathetic tend to be the young people who think the disease is not serious to them. Vaccine passports really do well on that group.”

Speaking during a webinar with a federal union, the Professional Association of Foreign Service Officers, Deonandan said he generally supported domestic vaccine passports, likening them to a driver’s licence, but strongly opposed mandatory immunization of young children.

“Vaccine mandates are controversial,” said Deonandan, adding compulsory shots for children under 12 “just creates far too much distrust in the population and doesn’t rub people the right way.

“I have a small child. I’m not happy about injecting him with strange things. I will if his mother agrees. But it does not fill me with comfort to do so. I get it.”

Deonandan said he thought compulsory vaccination for federal employees was legally defensible, but acknowledged it would draw protest.

“The weakness is our democracy,” he said.

“Our biggest value is our freedom and our democracy. That is the thing that’s our Achilles’ heel here. Authoritarian governments do better with COVID because they control the messaging and compel behaviour. We don’t want to be that. So we need to empower the citizens to think more rationally to their own ends.”

Deonandan predicted Canada will not achieve “herd immunity” against COVID-19 until at least 91% of eligible citizens are fully vaccinated. The rate is currently 81%, according to the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Freeland says Canada has to stop cutting business taxes

The Liberal Party has proposed $4.2 billion a year in new taxes mainly on corporations.

Published

on

Deputy Prime Minister Chrystia Freeland says Canada has to put a stop to cuts to corporate taxes, calling it a “race to the bottom.”

Blacklock’s Reporter noted the Liberal Party proposed $4.2 billion a year in new taxes, mainly on corporations.

“Part of building an equitable recovery is strengthening international tax fairness, ending the global race to the bottom in corporate tax and ensuring that all corporations, including the world’s largest, pay their fair share,” said Freeland.

“We will stem the world tendency to reduce the corporate tax rate.”

The Party’s August 25 campaign document, Asking Financial Institutions To Help Canada Build Back Better, proposed an increase in the corporate tax rate from 15 to 18% on banks and insurers with revenues more than a billion dollars a year.

It also proposed an unspecified Canada Recovery Dividend to be “paid by these same large banks and insurance companies in recognition of the fast-paced return to profitability these institutions have experienced in large part due to the unprecedented backstop Canadians provided to our economy through emergency support to people and businesses.

“The allocation of this dividend between applicable institutions will be developed in consultation over the coming months with the Superintendent of Financial Institutions,” continued the document.

It would be “applied over a four year period.”

Cabinet estimated all new taxes, including a new charge on tobacco manufacturers and tighter collections on offshore accounts, would generate $4,241,000,000 next year and nearly twice as much, more than $8.2 billion, by 2025.

The figures were calculated by the Parliamentary Budget Office.

“Big banks got a windfall,” Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told reporters August 25.

“So as we rebuild we’re going to ask big financial institutions to pay a little back, to pay a little more, so that we can do more for you.

“Big banks and insurance companies have been doing very well over these past many months. Canada’s biggest banks are posting their latest massive profits of billions of dollars.

“Everyone else had to tighten their belt. We’re going to ask them to do a little bit more.”

New Democrat leader Jagmeet Singh said September 21 he expected cabinet to raise corporate taxes with support from his caucus.

“People are worried about who’s going to pay the price for the pandemic,” said Singh.

“We don’t believe it should be small business,” said Singh. “We remain resolute that it should be the ultra-rich.”

The New Democrat platform proposed a general increase in the income tax rate on all large corporations from 15% to 18%, not just banks and insurers, and a hike in the top federal income tax rate from 33% to 35% for individuals earning more than $216,500 a year.
