Happy #IWD, folks. Today, @jkenney & @Alberta_UCP will to try to tell you they love women, they support women, they defend women. Let’s revisit the short 2 yr history of the party and their action on women’s issues - because we all know that actions speak louder than words #ableg
One: @JasonNixonAB, UCP House Leader fired a woman for speaking up about sexual harassment. Nixon was her boss and he fired her for speaking out. #MeToo
Two: Every single member of the @Alberta_UCP caucus walked out on a historical bill to protect women while they access healthcare. They walked out not once, not twice, not five times, BUT TWELVE TIMES while MLAs debated legislation.
Three: A @UniteAlberta communications chairperson (@SoniaKont) tweeted that women’s marches are “ideological.” Well, Sonia - marching is an ideology of equality and human rights.
Four: @JasonNixonAB mansplained pipeline politics to @RachelNotley, someone who fights every single day for Albertans and #TMX. Nixon’s leader (@jkenney) had a great opportunity to build a pipeline while we was at the cabinet table in Ottawa, but didn't. bit.ly/2NRpWML
Five: @jkenney had the NERVE to stand at a news conference and try to tell the women of Alberta that he knows the biggest issues facing women better than they do. PLEASE, SIR.
Six: Yesterday, @jkenney stated that women do not know how to be tactical politicians. Well, the current government is filled with incredible women who have do their job with intelligence, compassion, grit, and tact. khttps://twitter.com/leahanneward/status/1103779524410400768
Seven: Kenney’s party is backed by Wilberforce, an anti-choice group that has bragged if Kenney gets elected, AB will have the most pro-life legislature in decades. They are bragging they've won 42% of the nominations.... cbc.ca/news/canada/ed…
Eight: @jkenney has bragged that he is "obsessed" with recruiting women candidates to his party, but only 38% of his candidates are women. Pretty poor showing for such a “strong effort.” We need more than effort, Mr. Kenney.
Let me tell you, @jkenney, the women in this province are strong, they are hard working, they are courageous, and that are #TacticalWomen. On #IWD2019 I want you to know that #OldBoysClub is no longer welcome in AB. #ableg #abpoli #BetterOffWithRachel
