Brian Jean and the Billion Dollar project that wasn’t

So I made my way down to Red Deer tonight for the Wildrose Leadership debate tonight. I had a good seat near the front.  There was no real knockout punch but Brian Jean certainly told some whoppers.

Brian Jean congratulated himself on his management of the federal government’s $1 billion “Green Infrastructure Fund” (GIF), delegated to him by his boss, the Minister of Transport.

Two things: why would you brag about spending government money?

Two, people who worked with him say he was lazy. 

Think about it. 

Government workers are calling Brian Jean lazy. 

 Apparently, Jean’s project approval process was so leisurely and lazy that in 2010 the PM and the Minister of Finance took away $170 million away from the GIF and Brian Jean’s boss and turned it over to‎ more engaged and proactive members of the Conservative Government in Ottawa. A further $45 million was also diverted away from the GIF. 

But then, word has it that Brian Jean’s international playboy mantra is “Why do today what I can put off till tomorrow?”

Can Wildrose afford a procrastinator in the leader’s chair? Should Albertans trust a playboy with their hard-earned tax dollars and their families’ future prospects and well-being? 

He’s running around screaming he’s Wildrose to anyone who will listen but he’s always acted like a PC. I keep saying it: Brian Jean is Danielle Smith in pants.

One last thing: did anyone else hear about a provincial Reform Party planning to run a well funded campaign in every riding? If it’s true, you heard it here first and the Wildrose should be scared.

Brian Jean IS a “Crazy Nutbar”

Is Brian Jean serious?

In yesterday’s Calgary Sun Brian Jean quickly tried to distance himself from his true social conservative roots.

He called everyone who is pro-life and believes that marriage is between a man and a woman “crazy and a nutbar.”

Well, apparently Brian Jean was a nutbar when he said this in parliament:

On the definition of Marriage:  “The word ‘marriage’ … describes a relationship between one man and one woman in a state-recognized contract. The institution of marriage was created for the purpose of procreation and for the nurturing of the children of the union…In my view, a stable home with a mother and father is and has always been – the foundation of our civilization and, although it may not always be attainable, I would argue that we should work toward this environment as it is best for our children. Our children are our future and must be protected.” [Hansard transcript, Dec. 7, 2006]

Or what about his Absolutely perfect voting record for the Campaign Life Coalition.

Just to give you an idea of how hardcore nutbar Brian Jean is, Campaign Life Coalition ranks him MORE CONSERVATIVE than Arch “Nutbar” Rob Anders!

 Let me say that again:

Brian Jean is MORE Socially Conservative than Rob Anders!! 

Campaign Life Coalition gives Brian Jean the green light and Rob Anders a mere yellow light. You can count on Brian Jean to vote for the social conservative issues EVERYTIME. 

So why did he practically scream NO! from the mountain tops when Rick Bell asked him if he was socially conservative?  Why did he call the core support of Wildrose nutbars and crazy? Why does he want to “sweep ” them all out of the party?

Is he a liar? Or is he betraying his beliefs for crass political opportunity?

Brian Jean has been one of those “crazies” and “nutbars” his whole life. He was born a baptist, went to a Christian liberal arts college and swore up and down that he was socially conservative during his stint in Ottawa. (Although his previous 5 or 6 wives and the alleged, secret-to-no-one harem he kept in his office of perky staffers looking to get …ahem… ahead might speak otherwise)

So now we come to yesterday and he’s bad mouthing socially conservative people… the backbone of Wildrose. Apparently there is no one he won’t flip on.

First he donates $10,000 to Jim Prentice to become leader and then wants to run against him as Wildrose.

He spends his whole life telling anyone in earshot how socially conservative he is (more than Rob Anders!) and now he’s calling them nutbars.  It’s almost too bad. I’d probably vote for the socially conservative Brian Jean.

Instead, we have  Brian “The Spatula” Jean because apparently there is nothing he won’t flip on: political parties, supporters, staffers, wives, personal religious faith…

Brian Jean: One Foot Across the Floor

You ever meet those people who just keep getting cheated on by their partners? It doesn’t matter who they date, it’s like they have a magnet for cheaters.

I’m beginning to think the Wildrose Party is like that.

Former Conservative MP Brian Jean threw his hat into the ring yesterday for the Wildrose leadership.  Great, Right? Except… there’s an $11,000 problem with that.

As you can see below, the City Centre Group donated $10,000 to Jim Prentice’s leadership campaign.

There it is in black and white. Page 12. Just a few down in the $10,000 range. City Centre Group. You know who owns City Centre Group? Brian Jean and his mother, Francis Jean. You probably know it as the famous Fort McMurray landmark:  City Centre Car Wash.

What’s really rich is that just yesterday Brian Jean was saying “I think the people of Alberta deserve better than what they’ve had for the last 44 years“.

Put your money where your mouth is Brian!

If they were really that bad, why did Brian Jean donate $10,000 to Jim Prentice? How many free PC memberships did he hand out with that money? And don’t forget  the time you and your mom donated $1,000 to Alison Redford  during the last election to help her defeat Wildrose.

$10,000 for Premier Prentice

And now Brian Jeans wants to lead Wildrose? Just what is his game here? You donate your money to the PCs and run for Wildrose? You’ve already got it figured out, don’t you? You donate to Prentice, get on his good side, win the Wildrose leadership, and then cross the floor into a cushy position… say Finance Minister?

Wildrose needs to elect someone who isn’t just a PC trying to get elected in a rural riding. They need someone who actually believes in the party and the province. We’ve had enough of these clowns.

I’m begging Wildrose not to pick Brian Jean. He’s already shown ZERO loyalty to the party. Don’t get cheated on again. Brian Jean’s already got one foot across the floor.

Seriously, even Danielle didn’t donate to Alison Redford.
