After attending the Rally in Red Deer I believe everyone should read this article. By Ashli Barrett of the Lacombe Globe
People’s Party of Canada (PPC) leader Maxime Bernier promised pipelines, changes to equalization and a true era of change during a Thursday evening town hall in Red Deer.
Speaking to a crowd of about 120 people at the Radisson hotel, within the Red Deer-Lacombe riding, during his week-long, cross-Alberta tour, he said his party will start a “real, common-sense revolution” using “bold reforms” to better the country.
Among changes would be an effort to address Alberta’s anger over its treatment by the federal government, primarily in the area of pipelines, such as the Trans Mountain expansion project.
“I know that you are mad because – they call me ‘Mad Max’ – I’m mad also. I’m looking at what’s happening in Ottawa – no one is ready to fight for pipelines, including my former friend Andrew Scheer,” he said. “You’re so mad, there’s now a ‘little’ independent movement, but we had, in 1968 in Quebec, a ‘little’ independent movement.”
