It's looking more like the UCP are the blight
Nope. The NDP are the blight. They just plain suck.
That's what a partisan BCer would say but look at what the Albertans have to say.

Alberta NDP continues to lead UCP in voter support: Angus Reid poll
he Alberta NDP led by Rachel Notley continues to lead the ruling UCP led by Premier Jason Kenney in popularity among voters, according to polling data released Thursday by Angus Reid.

The poll suggests roughly two-in-five Albertans, or 42 per cent, would vote for the NDP compared to roughly three-in-10, or 31 per cent for the UCP.

The Wildrose Independence Party has 16 per cent support, followed by the Alberta Party at eight per cent and the Liberals at one per cent.

The NDP have led the UCP in terms of voter intention since March 2021, according to the Angus Reid poll done every three months, and the gap has remained somewhat steady since June 2021.

We all know in 2019 the federal Liberals put in their "we can stop pipelines because of the man-made climate change fairy tale" bill. The Alberta Court of Appeal agrees.
Opinion: Alberta court to Ottawa: Overruling Indigenous resource projects 'smacks of paternalism'

Last month, the Alberta Court of Appeal ruled the legislation is unconstitutional because it intrudes upon provincial jurisdiction as outlined in the Constitution, by allowing the federal cabinet to veto resource projects based on its view of the public interest in almost unlimited circumstances.

While legal and media commentary has largely focused on what the case means for the division of powers between Ottawa and the provinces, it is also notable for what it says about Indigenous economic rights.

It has become accepted in Canada that the consent of affected Indigenous communities is not only desirable but necessary for major resource projects to proceed. The legal powers that Indigenous groups wield have been used not only as a tool to defend their constitutionally protected Aboriginal and treaty rights — including hunting, fishing and other traditional uses of the land — but as a strategy by allied groups to delay or cancel resource projects for their own, usually environmental objectives.

This principle has been enshrined in the Impact Assessment Act. The federal government maintains the authority to reject any project that impacts Indigenous cultural or physical heritage, use of lands for traditional purposes, and indeed “any change occurring in Canada to the health, social or economic conditions of Indigenous peoples,” a phrase so broad that it could apply to any project, anywhere.

But those who have used Indigenous rights as a strategy to stymie resource development are now finding that the flip side also applies. That is because the courts have begun to respect Indigenous rights to not only halt development but to pursue it.

Two recent cases highlight the shift. In Ermineskin Cree Nation vs. Canada, 2021 , the Federal Court found that the minister of environment and climate change “inexplicably froze out” the Ermineskin when he designated a nearby coal mine for federal assessment. The Ermineskin, who had already negotiated a benefits agreement with the proponent Coalspur, were blindsided by the federal intervention. The minister argued that the potential for lost economic benefits did not trigger a duty to consult because it did not adversely impact Aboriginal rights, which he narrowly defined as traditional activities. The judge disagreed, stating that modern interpretations of Aboriginal rights include encompassing economic interests related to resource development.

Alberta NDP promises to revive summer job program for students and employers

Alberta’s New Democratic Party intends to revive and enhance a program that connected summer job seekers with employers aiming to hire and train workers.

Addressing the Edmonton Chamber of Commerce on Tuesday, Opposition leader Rachel Notley said the NDP — if re-elected to power — will “bring back and expand” the Summer Temporary Employment Program (STEP), which incentivized high school and post-secondary student employment from May to August through a $7 per hour wage subsidy.

Before it was cut in 2019, the program cost about $10 million annually and employed around 3,000 students over the 16-week period. Notley said the NDP plan, which would fund the program to the tune of $40 million, would increase STEP’s footprint fourfold.

“We anticipate that this expansion would support the hiring of more than 12,000 young people,” Notley told the chamber, “and our analysis shows that this would actually reduce the youth unemployment rate to the same rate as the general population.”

According to the province, the April unemployment rate for Albertans in the 15 to 24 age group fell 5.7 per cent from the year prior to 10.5 per cent, but it’s still nearly double the 5.9 per cent for Albertans 15 years of age and older.

Annie Dormuth, Alberta and B.C. provincial director for the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) said while the province is moving toward economic recovery, that goal is still a ways away for many Alberta businesses.

According to April survey data from the CFIB, 82 per cent of Alberta small businesses are having difficulties finding staff.

“They still need all the help that they can get right now to cover costs, especially with inflationary pressures affecting their bottom line,” Dormuth said. “Any type of cost relief that goes to help businesses’ overhead — as well as encourages more youth employment and addresses labor shortages — is definitely welcomed policy for small businesses.”

Good news for Albertans - wages are rising. The bad news? They can't rise fast enough to combat #justinflation

Wages are going up in Alberta, but not enough to match inflation

That’s both a good and a bad thing, says ATB Financial economist

Enforcement begins on Alberta's K-Country pass; NDP Opposition promises to axe it

The Alberta government has begun enforcing a pass for visitors to the popular Kananaskis Country mountain parks, but the NDP Opposition says it will scrap the fee if the party wins next year's election.

Leader Rachel Notley says having to pay $15 a day or $90 a year for personal vehicles is unfair to lower-income people and their families.

“These parks, they belong to all Albertans, and we won’t put up barriers or Albertans, regardless of their income, to experiencing this outdoor gem,” Notley said Friday.

“If (Albertans) elect an NDP government, we will repeal the Kananaskis pass and make sure K-Country is open and accessible to all.”

The fee was introduced a year ago with an extended grace period, but Environment Department spokesman Paul Hamnett said Friday the pass is now being enforced.

Staff will be scanning licence plates and issuing $150 tickets to anyone who doesn’t have the proper pass and who is not exempt from payment as are area residents and recipients of Assured Income for the Severely Handicapped.

As long as the UCP stays in power, for sure. Can't argue that. Just can't let the disgusting and evil NDP any where near the corridors of power again, if Alberta is to have any hope for the future.

I think it's the other way around, cloddish UCP and the bumbling CPC should never be allowed near the corridors of power again because they seem to have the anti-Midas touch. Whatever they touch turns into lead.

Nope, the same scenario as the Federal Cons....once the Cons get into power, their ineptitude and incompetence leaves the voters looking for alternatives.
