things that make you go hmmm…Alberta one of the provinces not interested in Trudeau climate change ..pipeline leak…now this what is going on???
Not living in reality.
The usual suspects are rather quiet about the magnetic nurses judicial interference.
keep up the great work Danielle you have my family’s vote ! keep on Truckin
Pretty rich the NDP wanting independent investigations when it’s conservatives.
The fact that Smith is calling this “defamation” when it is a recording of her own words shows she knows what she said was inappropriate. Why would you not want an investigation?
The legal challenge is going to court in April. Who and what is NDP 🤠
It’s time for an investigation, Smith will choose who does the investigation. If it works for Trudeau it must be acceptable.
Investigation of what? Its literally a recording of her voice. If that doesn’t change anything, then you get to shut up and quit crying about “Trudeau” when you’d still vote for a woman who’s literally recorded discussing all the ways she’s interfering with an active criminal prosecution.
Listen to the conversation in its whole context.. she says she cannot influence the courts.. the courts are independent.
So interference is fine ONLY if Conservatives.
She says in the call she doesn’t have the power to give clemency.
I like this woman even more now. My greatest shame in life is that I once voted for the ndp. Sorry everyone.
No harm done as long as you realize it. Welcome to the resistance.
Awe, at least you know your mistake, so don’t do it again. 😊
…for certain, many ndp voters feel the same way….
Wow, that’s your greatest shame? Must be young.
I hate when they try to demonize anyone who is against the ‘system’. I’m happy Danielle was against the senseless restrictions and discrimination we endured during the pandemic.
NDP useless both federally and provincially. Keep fighting Alberta
How is that supposed to be interference? Ahahaha, the criteria prosecutors are supposed to look to before laying charges is as follows
Is it in the public interest?
Is there a reasonable likelihood of conviction?
She literally just said she asked them to do what they’re supposed to be doing.
NDP is history in Alberta, bad one at that.
Cover up for Trudeau some more please, we need more distractions. Way to go Smith, keep up the “interference” it’s working.
The NDP is a stain on Alberta.
The NDP is untrustworthy as a servant of the public interest.
if PP wasn’t vying to be our PM I’d love to have Danielle Smith as our PM.
Go Danielle go ❤❤❤
Is the NDP still working out of Rachel Notley’s basement.
I wish Ontario had a Premier like Danielle Smith.
