I get so frustrated with my mail from conservative sources. For example, this from Rebel Media’s Sheila Gunn Reid:
On Tuesday, May 3rd, a massive forest fire entered Fort McMurray, and the entire city was evacuated. …
[A]s the entire province was mobilizing — every firefighter, every RCMP officer, everyone with a plane, helicopter or just a spare can of gas — Rachel Notley [socialist premier] went to at party at an Edmonton bar.
You see, May 5th was the one-year anniversary of the NDP’s election victory. So Rachel Notley put aside everything less important, to go to a party with her NDP friends.
Decisions about fire-fighting and relief efforts would just have to wait. Because Notley chose to spend the night celebrating herself instead.
Proof is offered. But so?
Isn’t it becoming dangerous to act like we don’t all know?: The people who voted for Notley want, for the most part, to be just like her.
They possibly don’t want to help either They are looking for someone to blame, and for a trauma allowance.
Her indifference is just proof of how fabulous she is.
Again, from Gunn Reid:
P.S. Notley didn’t even try to hide the fact that she was partying. It was a public bar — the bar even boasted about her attendance. Don’t you think it’s odd that no other media have reported this scandal? Forward this e-mail to your friends — because they’ll certainly not hear about it on the CBC.
The other, government-friendly, media know who the growing dependent class is and they understand its needs. Burn, baby, burn.
Unless, of course, Albertans decide to forswear every aspect of progressive government of every kind.
Alberta readers: Did Notley’s behaviour really make much difference to anyone in Alberta? Who? Why? What do they plan to do about it?
