The only good news for Alberta is that the loser Kenney’s days are numbered and the province will soon be able to go back to the good days when Notley was in charge.

Being told to write essays explaining why ‘in your own words,’ the silly conclusions reached by the authors of textbooks were the right ones was one of the more infuriating things about being ‘educated.' On a couple occasions, the school asked if it was okay to use the obsequious nonsense I wrote as an example for other students. That was weird.

An astute student might win marks for demonstrating a thorough grasp of the purported evils of human-caused climate-change, but they would probably have to lie like a politician in order to carry it off. Unfortunately, most students would just accept the conclusions contained in the course materials. :-X

338Canada: A major warning sign for Jason Kenney's UCP

"Since the Wildrose and PC merger back in 2017, the Alberta NDP didn’t lead in any voting intention polls in the province until late fall of 2020. While several polls throughout 2020 clearly indicated that many Albertans were less than enthused with Jason Kenney’s handling of the pandemic, the United Conservative Party (UCP) was still consistently polling either in first place or tied with the NDP, until a poll from Research Co. measured the NDP with a narrow 3-point lead in December. Eyebrows were raised, but surely the new year would bring a return to normal?

In January, Mainstreet Research released its own numbers in the Western Standard which gave the NDP a stunning 17-point lead over the UCP, and a renewed Wildrose Party (now a pro-independence party), rising on the UCP’s right flank. However, it was argued that Mainstreet’s poll had coincided with the several media stories of UCP MLAs and staff who had travelled to sunny destinations during the Holiday break. Perhaps those numbers only reflected a knee-jerk, temporary anti-UCP sentiment that would subside in the following weeks?"


https://www.macleans.ca/politics/338can ... nneys-ucp/

Just over two years ago, Jason Kenney's newly hatched UCP party delivered a sound trouncing to the reigning NDP government of Rachel Notely. He didn't waste any time, going to war with public services and organized labour at the same time delivering a generous $4.7 billion in tax cuts to the corporate sector which ultimately will come out of Albertans' pockets. At the same time many Albertans began to understand that voting in anger, as had been Mr. Kenney's intention leading up to and during the 2019 election campaign, rarely yields the long term results one hopes for. Polls currently show that the NDP would return to a majority government were an election held today.

Rachel Notely's NDP did pretty good considering the cards they were dealt: decades of corporate favoritism, the oil price crash, and the Ft. Mac wildfires, and a seriously over-entitled electorate. But they were at the time, and still are, an economy in turmoil. The oil price crash caused the loss of a lot of very well paying jobs that are not likely to come back considering the growing environmental pressure to move away from fossil fuels as an energy source. People in general were worried about their futures, and it didn't take a lot of prodding on Mr. Kenney's part to make the NDP the scapegoat given Alberta's long history as a Conservative stronghold. That is coming back to haunt the UCP as voters who respond in anger are generally not thinking the issues through, and just as it was easy to convince voters that the NDP were to blame for the oil price crash, it will be even easier to convince them that Jason Kenney's mishandling of the pandemic and gutting of the public service sector is to blame for their current woes. Easier because there is truth in the current narrative where there was none in the yarn Mr. Kenney spread in 2018/19.

Fortunately for many Albertans, infrastructure projects committed to during Notley's time in office have kept a lot of people working through the economic downturn - and amazingly, many normally partisan Albertans recognize who to give credit to. The biggest gripe many Albertans have right now is they still have to wait for so long to turf the Kenney crowd to the street.

This is 100% not true. The biggest gripe I am hearing every day now is that too many people are sitting at home collecting CERB and no one wants to work anymore. With the increase in the price of oil (h/t to the idiot Democrats) Alberta is picking up again, and picking up fast. Couple that with the fact that many projects have been sitting in idle mode waiting for the pandemic to end.

Saying that "infrastructure projects started by Nutley are keeping Albertans employed" is partisan nonsense. As we have seen, every premier of Alberta is at the mercy of the world commodity prices. Jason Kenney isn't responsible for oil prices going up, or the pandemic, or Canada's pitiful and awful response to the pandemic. But Albertans sure will be glad a business-friendly UCP will be in power when things really turn around in Alberta, and they are already well on their way. Keep up the great work Jason! :up:

They should just abolish science classes altogether. Science has no place in conservatism.

Indeed. Perhaps no single measure would serve to make the future brighter for Albertans than the strict depoliticisation and privatization of the province’s schools. It might even help to produce more gifted Alberta libertarians to compensate for the distressing ignorance of those for whom the application of logic is an obvious and growing problem.

That being done, it would be hard to imagine a place on Earth with greater potential than Alberta. :up:
