The NDP held partisan rallies in both Edmonton and Calgary this week to showcase their obsession with Gay-Straight Alliances.
Attendees at the Edmonton rally (mostly partisan NDP activists and union workers) marched from the Alberta legislature to Jason Kenney’s campaign office.
The rallies organized by Leah Ward (a socialist activist for the NDP) were in reaction to statements by Jason Kenney suggesting he supports giving teachers the authority to contact parents if in their professional judgment they deem it beneficial to the well-being of a child.
His proposed legislation would bring Alberta in line with nine out of ten Canadian provinces.
To say the NDP campaign has been off on a rocky start is an understatement. It’s reminiscent of last year’s demise of the Ontario Liberals, when a caucus of fifty-five was decimated by Doug Ford to the point when all seven Ontario Liberal caucus members can now fit in a minivan.
It appears the fate of Alberta’s first NDP government will be similar. Every lightning rod Press Progress plants in the ground for their NDP political comrades, like allegations of white supremacy, homophobia, transphobia, have been deemed unfounded or a distraction from the real issues facing Albertans.
It’s not just me saying that, the opinion polls back me up.
As you will see in my video, the feeling of helplessness has already set into the NDP’s array of radical activists. They were triggered the moment I stepped onto the legislature grounds to cover their gathering.
Five individuals ended up following me for nearly three hours. In the end, when I tried to return to my car, sixteen thugs confronted me, including Bashir Mohamed, a Somalian expat who was arrested for harassing Jason Kenney years ago.
