These are all multifaceted and seriously complicated issues. It doesn't escape notice that the politicians that are complaining the loudest about the Liberals have zip for effectual solutions themselves, but appear intent on bamboozling voters into supporting what is actually veiled denial and inaction.

What do you need ? Danielle Smith's aggressive resistance to reduction of GHG emissions, her painting Ottawa as the bad-guy when it is her who is ignoring the fact of man-made climate change and the road it is taking the whole planet down, and manipulating working class Albertans into supporting her ? She is a tool of the corporate sector who see only their own bottom line in the face of the growing mountain of evidence supporting the urgent need to find alternatives to burning fossil fuels for energy.

See, thats emotion. Not an example supporting a single claimed virtue coming from any liberalist. Its not about painting ottawa as the bad guy, their own constant failing and being unable to have ever achieved success around any of their virtue claiming is exactly why we are facing all these problems. Facts are facts, all any woke liberalist member can do is attack because they sure cannot represent themselves with examples.
Success is to be measurable, something liberalists cannot seem to do themselves. So, they spend all their time trying to discredit anyone else that can easily prove their incompetence.

The fact BC residents sit around online complaining about Alberta's Resource sector says it all.

They depend on ever-expanding Govt supports, they are miserable in their lives, and they want that same type of existence forced onto everyone else around them. Sounds like their $ocialism aspirations birthed The $cience.

Great job Danielle! Keep up the great work on that! "GHG emissions" - what a joke. Just more fairy tale nonsense.
her painting Ottawa as the bad-guy
And in this case she's a Renoir or a Picasso. Her painting is perfect.
when it is her who is ignoring the fact of man-made climate change
LOL - Ignoring "the fact" of man-made climate change - good grief what a stupid comment. Once again, the moronic Left won't quit until the entire Alberta economy is shut down in the name of stupid fairy tales. And for what purpose? Please, tell us, given the cost of what you are demanding, the benefit will be? Oh right, you can't, because you're too lazy and far too dense to understand the consequences of your foolish regressive policies. Just so dumb.
in the face of the growing mountain of evidence supporting the urgent need to find alternatives to burning fossil fuels for energy.
There is no "growing mountain of evidence" - this is stupidity, gullibility and foolishness. There is no "urgent need". This is total nonsense. And once again, this continual insistence to shut down Alberta, without giving any clue as to what good it would do, other than just blathering fear-mongering propaganda and silliness, is why people don't want a carbon tax, and why they aren't listening to this moronic climate hysteria. At some point, you have to clarify and give actual facts rather than silly propaganda and foolish talking points. Otherwise, you will be rightfully ignored.

I am no longer a BC resident—once again I’m a resident of Alberta. And Alberta has never been short of people needing government support, who are miserable in their lives, have fallen into drug abuse, homeless camps that grew daily even in a boom because of the boom, food bank usage due to boom migration, crazy mortgage rates holding people back as well as unaffordable rentals due to accommodation problems, a shortage of infrastructure to serve the increased population during a bust, and wars breaking out . . ..

And the monoculture oil economy with no fallback plan as is being offered now has had much to do with creating many of those problems and then not much to do with ever overcoming them
.
But then an honest Albertan who’s been in the oil patch since the fifties and beyond will understand what I mean right down to its minutia.

Why is it that only Alberta has to have a "fallback plan"? Does Quebec have a "fallback plan" if their constant river of government money ever dries up? Or Atlantic Canada if their oil revenue dries up? Or Manitoba and Saskatchewan if they can't grow grain anymore? Or BC if people finally stop smoking weed? Why is it that lunatics always demand a "fallback" plan for Alberta, when they are sitting on a huge trove of energy that the world needs and will need for centuries to come? So silly.

As long as Alberta keeps the commie NDP turds out of power, they'll be an economic powerhouse forever.

yes, and I found it even more disturbing that the head of the NDP in Alberta is married to a high-ranking bozo in CUPE, which now is tweeting out Jewish hatred on X. My goodness, the rot sure goes deep in the NDP and in government unions in this country.
