Holy hee haw. Lasso me like a baby steer. I can't believe that Alison Redford is still snubbing Tom Mulcair.
Redford said no meeting with Mulcair is on the books.
"Nobody's asked me to meet with him and I'm quite busy Stampeding and speaking to Albertans about what matters to them."
Because she's got better things to do eh? Like flipping pancakes at the Redneck Rodeo, or watching horses die.
Which only makes Mulcair look even more like a real leader
NDP Leader Tom Mulcair reiterated his opposition to the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline in Calgary Thursday but said Alberta oil companies do need greater market access for the oilsands.
Trying to work out a plan that is good for Alberta and good for Canada. While she pouts in the corner. Does that make sense?
Now look I rather like Redford. She's definitely a big improvement over the last two Premiers of the one-party petro province. Especially the one who used to get drunk all the time, and throw money at the homeless.
And I do realize that she has to deal with Danielle Smith and her Wildhog Party.
And that that can be
But maybe she should just get a grip on the new reality. Understand that the dirty oil pipeline to B.C. is going nowhere.
If Enbridge has not yet got the message, it needs to be told: Its proposal to build the Northern Gateway pipeline through B.C. is dead. The company, in the best interests of its shareholders, should withdraw its proposal and go back to the drawing board.
Even Barbara Yaffe knows that. And that perhaps it's time she should start taking Mulcair and the NDP seriously.
The NDP leads the Conservatives in both B.C. and Quebec. In crucial Ontario, Mulcair’s party is only three points behind Harper’s crew. The New Democrats lead by eight points in Atlantic Canada.
All this is happening while the tattered Liberals still scoop up 20 per cent of national support. If the left manages to merge or if the Liberals simply collapse under the weight of the NDP, it’s look out Stephen Harper.
They all must know — and Redford surely does, too — that everything is breaking Mulcair’s way.
Because if he hadn't focused attention on the tarry wastelands the Cons and Big Oil might have got away with it. And the more Redford snubs Mulcair the more popular he becomes. If that's possible eh?
Golly. I'm starting to LOVE this movie. The dirty oil pipeline is going nowhere. Stephen Harper is sinking like a duck in a tailing pond.
The Alberta oil gang are on their way to the not so OK Corral.
And I can't wait for the happy ending...
