The NDP is always spouting off about free speech and democratic principles but as anyone who has been on the receiving end of their vitriol attacks can attest, they have one rule for themselves and a whole other set for everyone else.
Dave Rutherford reports on a threat by NDP operative Joel French to boycott the business Rentex because of Conservative signs on their properties.
French was listed as the University of Alberta NDP campus president in 2010
President, U of A Campus NDP
so this isn’t some part-time/lowly volunteer that is frothing at the mouth trying to damage a legitimate business just because the CEO dares to take part in politics.
If you need further proof of his status in the NDP organization, check out the video of his Gaza flotilla rally above.
And what does the NDP’s Alberta campaign manager, Lou Arab say about this? Only that it was “over the top”.
Don’t expect the media to report on this as they are too busy sniffing out Conservative faux-scandals of-the-day like a Union rep saying an unnamed cleaning woman was paid cash to work at 24 Sussex (see here) and the continued dragging of an innocent young lady’s name through the mud (see here).
Update: Alberta Ardvark reminds us that Joel French was Pat Martin’s “university kid” who was involved in Linda Duncan’s office using parliamentary resources for NDP partisanship (see here)
