Communications with WIPA regarding possible merger

The Independence Party would like to address the communication we have been having with the Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta in regards to a merger. We believe in transparency and want to make sure there is no misunderstanding with our members on what has transpired over the past couple of months.

On April 21, 2022, Sharon Maclise, President and Vicky Bayford, Interim Leader had a meeting with Rick Northey, President, Floyd Langenhoff, Director and Vicky McGonigle, Member from the Wildrose Independence Party of Alberta in regards to opening up the conversation for merger talks.  The meeting seemed to go very well. We were very clear on what The Independence Party required in order to move things forward.  The three items that had to be addressed before talks would even be considered were as follows:

  1. The mergedparty will elect a new board,
  2. elect a new Leader,
  3. and incorporate the over-riding principle of a Referendum on Independence within one year of forming government in its founding constitution

At our monthly board meeting in May, a motion was passed to send a letter to invite WIPA into merger talks if they agreed to the above terms. The letter was sent on May 17.

On June 9, 2022 we received a positive response from the WIPA board members.  We had assumed since we had been very firm that the 3 terms were non-negotiable to proceed that we would be setting up a merger committee and getting ready to hold an SGM for our members to vote on the merger.  Unfortunately, at the meeting that followed between Sharon Maclise and Bill Jones on June 12, we were disappointed to find out that WIPA has no intention of guaranteeing referendum on independence for Albertans.  They had not agreed to point 3 and we are not sure what motion they put forward to their board to say they wanted to move forward into merger talks with The Independence Party.

Since this last meeting there has been a few more back and forth emails and phone calls, but not any conversation that WIPA will agree to a guaranteed referendum on independence. The Independence Party provincial board and many of our members have expressed that they want a referendum. At this time we are done talking, unless the WIPA has a change of heart and will guarantee a referendum on independence to the people of Alberta. Albertans deserve to be asked the question.  It is not up to a small room of people to be making choices for the membership. This is exactly the type of government we are fighting against.  We are committed to being grassroots and listening to what our members want.

The Independence Party will move forward being the only party that is truly an independence minded party and will give Albertans a real choice and a real change. If you are a member of WIPA and you want to ensure you are given a referendum on independence, then please reach out to your CA boards and your provincial board and tell them that you want the choice.  You have an AGM coming up in July; you can have it put in front of your members and see what the consensus within the WIPA party is. We do want to see a united front in the next election, but without a referendum on the table there is no real change for Alberta, so we will remain strong in our convictions and hold to our bylaws, founding principles and mission statement.


WEF in Alberta

The World Economic Forum’s agenda - The Great Reset - was launched many years ago. WEF’s agenda was brought to Canada by politicians you never would have suspected. All the following information is public. Links can be found below. 

To begin with, “The Great Reset has been described as a ‘massively funded, desperately ambitious, internationally coordinated project led by some of the biggest multinational corporations and financial players on the planet and carried out by cooperating state bodies and NGOs.’ It proposes a radical and total transformation of the global economy and its production, distribution and governance systems; but goes further, seeking to ‘reset’ every sector from health to education, agriculture to nature conservation; in sum, nearly every aspect of life on the planet.”

From the World Government Summit: Digital, globally centralized, programable, blockchain ID.  “We are on the brink of a dramatic change where we are about to, and I’ll say this boldly, we’re about to abandon the traditional system of money and accounting and introduce a new one. The new accounting is what we call blockchain.  It means digital.  It means having an almost perfect record of every single transaction that happens in the economy…”  Dr. Pipa Malmgren; American economist and former advisor to President George W Bush.  In the WEF’s dystopian agenda, the New Global Context/The Great Reset will give to the government the ability to watch and control a citizen’s ability to participate in society. 

“As part of the WEF’s ‘Global Redesign Initiative,’ organized along with the United Nations in the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis, and described as “the most comprehensive proposal for re-designing global governance since the formulation of the U.N.”

 

The World Economic Forum's Agenda brought to Canada, “Thank you Professor Schwab for that kind introduction. I also want to thank you particularly for the invitation to speak here that you extended to me earlier this year…Professor, you have made the World Economic Forum an indispensable part of the global conversation among leaders in politics, business, and civil society…” 

- Stephen Harper, former Prime Minister of Canada. 

In 2015, Prime Minister Stephen Harper sent to the World Economic Forum’s annual summit in Davos; 40 politicians, government bureaucrats, big corp and Cabinet Ministers like John Baird, the current co-chair of long time (2008) CPC MP Pierre Poilievre’s campaign committee. Harper signed Canada onto the Paris Climate Accord and was the first Canadian Prime Minister to proclaim that Alberta will phase out its oilsands. The tracks for SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) coming to Canada were laid by the Conservative Party of Canada led by Stephan Harper. 

At the January 2015 WEF globalist meeting in Davos, Switzerland, the following Canadian Ministers were sent by Stephen Harper:

- Ed Fast, Minister of International Trade

- John Baird, Foreign Affairs Minister 

- Christian Paradis, Minister of International Development

- Joe Oliver, Minister of Finance

- James Moore, Minister of Industry

The Canadian Conservative Party of Canada Ministers were not there simply to observe; The Canadian Ministers held “bilateral meetings with key international counterparts, as well as with business and civil society leaders…The ministers will also lead several sessions related to this year’s WEF’s theme: The New Global Context.”  

What was the New Global Context? In WEF’s definition it is “a world in search of a new order.” Sustainable Development Goals, social credit scores and digital IDs - control over humanity - being at the heart of the restructuring of Western Democracies around the globe. Restructuring free Nations to be under the control - the rule - of the global elites. The Great Reset, The New World Order, whatever their latest title given by the elites it is all the same; a horrifying and brilliantly laid trap that was slowly sprung upon the people of Alberta and Canada. 

“In 1815, shaping a new world order was the business of a handful of statesmen. Since then, the number of actors, connections and challenges has grown exponentially. In 2015, diplomacy operates in shifting and complex multistakeholder constellations, not bilateral transactions. In this regard, the World Economic Forum Annual Meeting provides an unparalleled platform to develop the insights, ideas and partnerships that are needed to rebalance and rebuild the pillars of modernity.”

Reminder; Stephen Harper was the Prime Minister to sign Canada onto the Paris Climate Accord, and was also the first Canadian Prime Minister to proclaim that Canada (Alberta) will phase out its oilsands energy resource. All goals of the World Economic Forum’s agenda. 

“Prime Minister Stephen Harper committed fossil-fuel rich Canada Monday to ending all production and use of carbon-based energy by the end of the 21st century.” 

That deadline has been pushed up fifty years. As you can see, Harper played a key role in ushering in the WEF’s global agenda to Canada.  Surely the Provincial Governments would defy this betrayal? Not so. The World Economic Forum was brought to Alberta by politicians you’d also least expect; Jason Kenney and The United Conservative Party of Alberta; as a whole. I learned of Wellington Advocacy in MLA Todd Loewen’s office. In my opinion, Wellington’s lobbying activity is widely known in Alberta politics. For whatever reason, MLAs dare not speak of it. 

World Economic Forum’s agenda brought to Alberta; Nat Ware, FORTE CEO lobbying the Alberta Government: “To discuss how solutions offered by Forte can support the Government of Alberta's goals for job creation and training in Alberta's Recovery Plan…” 

Who and what is FORTE?  “Saint Lucia will be piloting the Financing of Return to Employment (FORTE) programme – a data-driven programme that works by retraining individuals…long-term development financing to reach the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals…As part of its ongoing partnership with the World Economic Forum under the Sustainable Development Investment Partnership”

FORTE is “in discussions with fifteen governments around the world about using this as part of the coronavirus recovery efforts. We’re in the final stages…they’re actually moving very quickly…climate change…in Canada…re-skill and train people for the green jobs…for (replacing) unsustainable industries like coal mining, beef farming and logging.” “How do we reskill oil and gas workers and people in unsustainable industries?”  - Nat Ware, CEO FORTE

Who is Wellington Advocacy? Wellington’s staff and Board of Directors are all inner circle political operatives of Harper, Kenny and Doug Ford. Here are two examples; CEO Nick Koolsbergen - a longtime top strategist of Harper and Kenney. Ray Novak Board of Director, longtime Harper strategist and “co-founder and Managing Director of Harper & Associates – a global consulting firm led by Canada’s 22nd Prime Minister, Rt. Hon. Stephen Harper. From 2006-2015 Ray held a number of senior positions in the Office of the Prime Minister of Canada, including Principal Secretary and Chief of Staff to the Prime Minister. Ray serves on the board of the International Democrat Union, a global not-for-profit organization of more than 80 political parties.” 

Nat Ware has been in the Alberta Legislature several times himself, Wellington Advocacy has been lobbying the Alberta Government extensively on FORTE’s behalf. FORTE had also been actively lobbying the Canadian Trudeau government.  

There you have it. It’s an overwhelming realization to know that the World Economic Forum’s global elites have not only been influencing Alberta and Canadian conservative political leaders, our elected representatives were actively participating in planning and enacting the agenda. While I’ve no respect or trust in Trudeau and the Liberal party (as well as Jagmeet Singh and the NDP), in knowing this disturbing information I’d suggest all mainstream political parties are compromised. 

Trudeau, Harper, Kenney as well as all UCP MLAs have all been working counterproductive to the prosperity and sovereignty of Albertans. Answers must be demanded to these disturbing developments. There are many questions to be answered. Is the influence of elected representatives rooted in money and power? Are there darker forces at work here? While we cannot say for certain in that, there is certainty in knowing that the influence - the betrayal - is real. This heartbreaking reality causes anger and frustration. Especially when individuals like my friend and Alberta MLA Todd Loewen knows of this disturbing information, feigns ignorance to it, and remains silent - as he campaigns to become the next Premier of Alberta.  

My ask, as well as my advice, to everyone reading this is to take the time to research this information yourself, once acknowledged for what it is, I’d suggest there’s a duty to share it out widely. The people of Alberta and Canada deserve to know. To those individuals running to be leader of the UCP (the next Premier of Alberta), those who are currently elected representatives of Alberta (all levels of government), those working in media, and those who have other platforms - I’d ask that you please share this information and begin talking about it. 

Here’s a quote from my dear friend Dr Dennis Modry;  “According to Jack Mintz, ending the oil and gas industry will result in a one third reduction in the average income of Albertans…Who doesn't want to be prosperous? In order to be prosperous…you need to be free.” 

“No Federal or Provincial party has protected our interests, our prosperity and our individual freedoms and rights - and there’s all kinds of evidence for that in the 116 years - why would you think that it's possible now?” 

“To any MLA candidate and sitting MLA that's going to run again; what will you do differently that hasn’t been done in the last 116 years to protect my interests, my individual freedoms and rights and my prosperity, and self-determination?”  

“If they won’t get to a point where they’re not going to have a referendum on Independence, then why would you vote for them? Because they will never have negotiating power with Ottawa. They will never have leverage.” - Dr Dennis Modry. 

Given the disturbing reality of the WEF’s intrusion and willful introduction into Alberta by elected representatives; the political theater, the lies, the selling of false hope and promises in suggesting that Alberta’s issues will be resolved by the implementation of the “Sovereignty Act” alone is offensive to me.  Albertans deserve political leaders who fight for them, who offer them honest solutions, rather than pandering to deep pocket interests who do not respect Albertans enough to honour their right to the conversation of the only meaningful solution which can provide an Alberta first strategy, a solution also that has the power to free all Albertans. First Nation peoples included. Through this solution Alberta can become a prosperous, free and self directed Republic. A Referendum on Independence is the best and most direct method of achieving that goal. Quebec has led the way in how to achieve power and Sovereignty. The people of Alberta deserve also the opportunity of that conversation. The opportunity of seeking that solution. 

My fourth Great Grandfather Chief Black Powder and third Great Uncle Chief Big Bear - the last holdouts of the signing of Treaty Six - had strong words for the global invaders of their time. “I will not live with a noose around my neck.” But alas, my Great Grandfather died a broken man. Living out his years chained and shackled, imprisoned behind iron bars, his people were imprisoned on their own lands under the Pass System. 

Today however - we are not yet done. No matter the attempt to undermine it, the Independence conversation is unstoppable. A fire has been lit - a prairie fire - a great awakening of the people. The Alberta Independence grassroots movement is growing in the hearts and minds of the people of Alberta and has spilled over into Saskatchewan. This powerful solution can be - should be - unleashed all across Canada. It has the power to free all Candians.

May 18, 2022: The Independence Party is poised to step in where Premier Kenney stumbled. The coming decades belong to an Independent Alberta.

Just a week after an invigorating, packed house Annual General Meeting attended by many former UCP supporters The Independence Party is ready to give the voters of Alberta the choice many are looking for ~ an unprecedented chance to vote YES to a Referendum on Independence.

It is now clear that Albertans no longer trust an increasingly dysfunctional provincial political dynasty or an opposition party they cannot relate to on any level. Thousands of Albertans are embracing a chance to choose Alberta freedom    from a federation that punishes and despises them and to reject a never-ending parade of provincial governments that offer them nothing but more of the same.

Upon hearing that Kenney has decided to accept the rejection of almost 50% of his own Party members The Independence Party Leader, Vicky Bayford, remarked: ‘Jason Kenney, as he stepped down from leadership tonight, said “We need to move forward united. We need to put the past behind us.”  He is absolutely right.  We may end up with a new face in the leadership of the UCP, but the mandate will remain the same. It is time to move forward down a new path and stop repeating history. Our next election in 2023 will be history in the making as Albertans unite under the independence banner and vote for accountability, transparency, prosperity and freedom.”

The AGM will include the Leader’s address, the election of the Board, introduction and debate on member-driven policy (more to come on that), out-reach by Constituency Associations, a vote for or against a Leadership review, an exciting Guest Speaker and more.

Trudeau: kicks Alberta while they're down, again

August 15, 2021, Alberta – FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE


Justin Trudeau has called an election while Alberta is still struggling to get its head above water. This morning’s announcement shows the true nature of the anti-Albertan political machine in Ottawa. Trudeau is putting political gains and the consolidation of his own power ahead of the desperate need of Albertan workers and all of those who have had their lives decimated these past months.

The conservative opposition under the thumb of Erin O’toole has rolled out the red carpet for Justin Trudeau’s election victory this year. O’toole and his band of spineless yes men have not lifted a finger to oppose Trudeau’s disastrous policies and have instead done their best to take the wind out of the sails of pro-west politics. In fact, the so-called conservative party of Canada has joined Trudeau in the war against Alberta industry. With a notable example being O’toole’s dishonest carbon tax and his promise to keep in line with the net-zero emissions target following the United Nations’ Paris agreement. This is in line with the federal government’s pattern, which has been going strong since 1905, of slaughtering the western provinces to feed Ottawa’s special interest groups.

There is no realistic federal ballot choice to defend the Western provinces from Ottawa’s colonialism.  We have watched time and time again the exploitation of the hopes and dreams of Albertans by lying con-men who pretend there is a way to get a fair deal for Alberta in Canada. Each and every time history has sadly disappointed them and will continue to do so. The only thing left to do is refuse to play the game.  Come 2023 be ready to vote for independence; the only real answer to the Western dilemma. We hope that this election you will do something more constructive than voting federally, such as having a barbeque with friends and family.

---------------------FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE---------------------

Jason Kenney does not know the strength of the Alberta spirit, nor can he seem to manage it.  Two principled MLA's have stood up for the people they represent and have called for his resignation.  Of course this has led to their expulsion from the UCP Caucus.  
The Independence Party would like to extend their appreciation to Drew Barnes and Todd Loewen for taking the higher road. Like them we believe the leader of the UCP has lost the faith of the base that voted him in and is severely mismanaging this crisis in Alberta. It is time for Jason Kenney to step down.
We would also like to call on the other 15 MLA's, who signed the letter disagreeing with the reinstatement of the lockdowns, to also represent the people in your constituencies and resign from the UCP. The Albertans you represent need you now more than ever. 
Lastly, if any of you MLA's believe as we do, that it is time for Alberta to be its own nation, we invite you to come join us in the biggest and most important movement to Alberta's future.

The Fox is in the Henhouse, Get the Gun

---------------------FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE---------------------

Albertans, get ready to be flogged, the Liberals have doubled down on their socialist and globalist build back better mantra with the introduction of budget 2021.

As the leftist horde comes looking for the hundreds of billions it will cost to implement economic stimulus packages for the likes of SNC Lavalin and Bombardier, a national pharma-care program to satisfy Jagmeet, and their personal wet dream – universal basic income, where will their scandalous beady eyes settle, of course, the already half-cooked golden goose….Alberta.

President, David Campbell stated “The Independence Party will be here to greet the Liberals with a load of buckshot if they try to lay one hand on Alberta taxpayer dollars, or if they try to trample our constitutionally given powers. We are the only Party that people can rely on to protect Albertans and our way of life.”

We call on all Albertans to do what is best for our future generations #DiscoverYourIndependence.

NO END IN SIGHT FOR LOCKDOWNS / NO MEANINGFUL RECOVERY PLAN

---------------------FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE---------------------

 

NO END IN SIGHT FOR LOCKDOWNS / NO MEANINGFUL RECOVERY PLAN

February 26, 2021 – Calgary, Alberta

 

The UCP’s 2021 budget for Alberta is pandering to the socialist agenda. They have essentially told Alberta that we will be stuck in “pandemic” mode for quite some time.  There are no new ideas for keeping our seniors and vulnerable population safe and no plan to save the EXISTING small businesses that are being destroyed with their weak policies.  At the end of the day, Kenney’s UCP government will only cater to their federalist counterparts’ wishes.  They are not here for Alberta.

This budget guarantees the destruction of Alberta as indiscriminate spending continues in perpetuity. The health care budget does not address any real solutions to protecting the care homes and their job creation plan does not consider the people who have been financially destroyed by this pandemic.  What about anyone who is over 50 who has lost their job?  What about our Alberta small/medium business that are shutting their doors? There is no significant plan in the budget to protect people who have been the foundation of Alberta’s growth.

It is time to call on this government to end these lockdowns and come up with a real plan that protects our vulnerable and gets hardworking Albertans back to business!
