She didn't pass out earplugs. She pretended to listen and refused to entertain a single viewpoint that didn't take the province further to the left.

Stings, doesn't it?

To whom? The voices in her head? It sure as hell wasn't the farmers when she unionized farm workers, as just one example. It also wasn't business owners when she cranked minimum wage up to $15/hr, either. Nor was it John Q Public when she hired on 50,000 new public employees or created $100 billion in debt & deficit.

In some instances, she never even bothered asking the question. Eg., the carbon tax.

Go p!$$ on somebody else's back & tell them it's rainin', Freddie...

Uh, no. Kenney claimed he would be improving the decorum in the legislature, and then he pulls this assoholic stunt. No one is defending him. Except you.

I'm neither defending nor criticizing something that I don't care about. If Rachel Notley had built Alberta's economy instead of hamstringing it, she could have danced on the legislature tables for all I care.

She shafted Alberta with the proper decorum, and in Freddie's books, that's OK.

The second Red Rachel's cadre of Proglets left the building not only did the decorum improve, but the average IQ in the building went up 20 points...

You’re being obtuse. She listened, even if she disagreed. Your boy Kenney made a complete ass of himself and his party with the ear plugs shenanigans. The action is not defensible from someone who said they wanted to improve the decorum. Further, it sends a pretty clear message to the citizens of this province.

I don't suppose anyone upset by this bit of fun bothered to check the facts before shooting their mouths off, mainly Dippers?

The ear plugs were not used. It was all in fun to poke fun at NDP lies being told in the legislature.

Quote:
A spokesperson for Alberta Premier Jason Kenney is dismissing complaints that he disrespected the legislature and public sector workers by handing out earplugs to his caucus during a debate on Bill 9 late Wednesday night.

"This was a harmless and light-hearted attempt to boost government caucus morale after being forced to listen to the NDP's insults, lies and over-the-top rhetoric for hours on end," Kenney's press secretary Christine Myatt said in a written statement Thursday.

Government House leader Jason Nixon echoed that statement saying UCP MLAs were just joking around during a late night debate.

"Certainly nobody was wearing earplugs during debate inside the legislature, that's a ludicrous assessment," Nixon told reporters.

It sends a clear message to the leftist boobs who have ruined the province, I'll give you that.

But it's small condolence to the thousands of businesses that collapsed under Notley that she listened to their concerns while she stuck a knife in their backs. Ask those businesses whether they'd rather have Kenney, who pulled a silly stunt with earplugs, or the return of Rachel Notley (who listens to them).
