Mayor Gondek looks every bit the anti semite that everyone in Calgary, not just the Jewish Community, knows that she is. I do agree - good on her for pulling this stupid stunt and listening to her woke advisors, as she's generated so much anger towards her everyone can only hope she's gone next election. What a giant piece of :cuss: she is, just the dumbest.

That is so not what is happening here. The Jewish community is trying to co-opt mayoral support for their own political agenda and Mayor Gondek is having none of it. Good for her.

It's exactly what is happening here.

Their own political agenda??? WHAT? They are trying to deal with a rising tide of antisemitism, most of it caused by woke idiots like Gondek, and now she's just piled on the hate by stupidly pulling this stunt. What a complete idiot she is.
and Mayor Gondek is having none of it. Good for her.
Good for her? To show publicly that she hates Jews??? Just so yuck. Just so awful. Gondek sucks.

More on the scumbag Gondek, the Jew-hating mayor of Calgary:
Bell: Calgary Mayor Jyoti Gondek is the very picture of gutless

She couldn’t even manage that.

As she turns her back on Calgary’s Jews has the mayor of this city no shame?

Does she not realize what she has done? Does she even care?

At Calgary city hall, these questions cannot be answered.

Why?

Because Mayor Jyoti Gondek isn’t here at city hall for the menorah lighting Thursday, the first night of Hanukkah.

She’s no doubt finding new and creative ways to justify what cannot be justified, to rationalize what is not rational.

If Calgary’s Jews were hoping for this city’s mayor to stand with them in these times of trial, when antisemitism, the hatred of Jews, is increasingly excused by those who should know better, forget about it.

If Calgary’s Jews, or anyone else for that matter, expected to see a simple symbolic show of spine from Gondek when all she had to do was go to the lighting of the menorah at city hall and bring well wishes this Hanukkah, you apparently expected far too much.

Instead, at a critical time, when the right thing to do was so obvious and so easy she failed.

She couldn’t summon up one single ounce of courage when others with an axe to grind against Israel no doubt advised her not to attend. Pathetic is too weak a description.

Mayor Gondek failed as a leader. Miserably.

Gutless Gondek indeed.

What's going on with these disgusting antisemitic far Left leaders - first you have the NDP in bed with the scum at CUPE, who are being sued for instilling a culture of Jewish hatred, and now this idiot Gondek. Just disgusting. These people are barely human beings.

Can any of the NDP Liberals explain to us what the exact effect will be on global temperatures if they succeed in shutting down our oilsands industry?

Here are the figures to get you started. Show your calculations.

Mike Campbell wrote:"The Canadian oilsands represent ~0.1% of global CO2 emissions. In a world in which the demand for oil will I believe grow for many years to come, any action by a government to cap production should be considered economic treason."
Eric Nuttal, Eric Nuttall, partner and senior portfolio manager at Ninepoint Partners
***

I continue to ask - what specifically did Canada get in return for saying no to hundreds of billions in economic activity along with tens of billions in government revenues?
The PM, Minister Giulbeaut, FM Freeland have yet to answer - despite the government's opposition to oil and gas that has literally changed Canada's financial future.

It’ll probably keep global temperatures about the same if that’s done. But that’s also kinda the goal. You asked the wrong question. Try again.
So you're saying that if we eliminate 0.1% of global emissions while China brings two coal-fired plants per week online, global temperatures will stay the same.

That's an admission that China's increasing coal-fired plants at a crazy fast rate has no effect on global temperatures, and I'm wondering how that fits the whole AGW theory.

The weird part is that only eliminating Canada's oilsands will stabilize global temperatures. :135:

Yup. All the moronic fearmongering about the man-made climate change myth is disgusting.

“The lack of enthusiasm coming from Albertans when asked about leaving the CPP is largely based on concerns that their own household costs may increase. While more than one-in-three (37%) believe they would save money if Alberta leaves, a larger group (48%) say it would cost them more…most Albertans are more comfortable with the CPP than they would be with a new APP. Half (51%) worry that they would be worse off, including one-in-five UCP voters. Another one-in-five overall (18%) say they anticipate breaking even, while three-in-10 (31%) say they would be better off with a provincial plan…”

It appears that the Premier has/had not read her citizens very well. They do not like the idea of an APP. However, the Premier did speak to supporters.

An important question is how much of what Ms. Smith says and does arises out of genuine concern for Albertans, and how much is just "playing to the cameras" ? Her rural base, far to the right of center, delights in her willingness to take on Ottawa in just about anything they say and do, and her recent trip to Dubai and the COP28 convention has even been portrayed in the same light. On closer inspection just about everything she say is full of half-truths and contradictions, with the clear beneficiaries being the oil & gas producers who really could not care less about Albertans and their province.

Voters will settle for half the truth compared to the 100%+ of lies spewing from the gobs of the NDP Liberals.

Not really.

Oh no - oil and gas producers who provide a giant portion of our funds for all of our social programs might not be treated like garbage!! How dare the government do that!! As for the "not caring" about Albertans, this is just such a load of nonsense. The only people who "don't care" about Albertans are the NDP, anti-semitic idiots like Jodi Gondek, and the horrible unions like CUPE who are being sued for their awful racist behavior. That's it.
