Typical response for a defenceless position.

That's OK, FJN. You enjoy your tax increases & your user fee increases & your liquor & beer price increases & paying for a Carbon Tax. When (not if) it comes, enjoy the PST & don't forget that the Royalty Review hasn't happened yet, either.

You'll need a 20% increase (my definition of 20%, not yours) in your salary just to put as much in your pocket as you once had under the hateful, thieving, Conservative bastards...

The economy tanks while the Dippers fiddle with no idea what the hell they are doing to our economy and in turn to the entire economy of Canada:

CFIB calls for emergency debate in legislature on Alberta’s economic crisis

AB government urged to put moratorium on any major new public policies until economy has recovered

CALGARY, January 8th, 2015 – Following today’s Statistics Canada release of Alberta’s job numbers, the Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB) is appealing to the Alberta government to recall the legislature early for an emergency debate on the economic crisis plaguing Alberta’s economy and small business.

According to Statistics Canada figures, there has been a major decline in full-time employment since this time last year. The job numbers come on the heels of CFIB’s latest Business Barometer results released on December 31 that showed Alberta small business confidence plunged to an historic low of 33.1 on the 100 point scale, the weakest level ever recorded anywhere in the country.

“During the last recession, many big businesses enacted significant cost cutting measures and laid people off in droves, but thankfully small and medium-sized business held on to their staff as long as possible, providing much needed stability to the economy,” said Amber Ruddy, Alberta Director for CFIB.

“This time, however, things appear to be different. By all indications, we are starting to see rapidly growing lay-offs by smaller, independent businesses, as they struggle to survive the extended downturn. When so many entrepreneurs are shedding jobs, and at serious risk of failure, that spells serious, fundamental trouble for Alberta,” said Ruddy.

According to CFIB’s Business Barometer numbers, the employment picture for small and medium-sized businesses has changed significantly in the past few months, with 30 per cent of business owners now saying they plan to reduce their full-time workforce, compared to only 9 per cent who intend to hire.

“The level of frustration and despair in the small business community is unequivocally evident. Our elected leaders must do a better job of understanding the realities of independent business and discuss ways to take meaningful action to support Alberta small business community through this most difficult time. There is no time to waste,” said Ruddy.

Citing major new policies, such as personal and corporate tax hikes, huge jumps in the minimum wage, a massive new carbon tax, and the prospect of granting sweeping new tax powers for city governments, CFIB calls for an immediate moratorium on any further policy changes until the economy has sufficiently recovered.

“Although low oil prices are at the heart of Alberta’s economic problems, the piling on of one bad policy after another has made a bad situation a lot worse. We are calling for the Premier and her government to hit pause on any additional major public policy changes until the economy has sufficiently recovered,” said Ruddy.

The Legislature is scheduled to resume on the second Tuesday in February. But the Government House Leader has until January 15 to file a legislative calendar, and could recall the house earlier than February 9th to have an emergency debate on the economy.

Related to SINC's post above.

The death of the Alberta dream

Quote:
Large-scale layoffs, empty office towers, falling house prices: Alberta has been gutted by the glut.
No, the NDP do not control the price of oil.

Yes, they do create policy that can help or further hurt our economy...

Further:

Quote:
Alberta’s options are limited. The NDP’s talk of diversifying the economy is easier said than done. Consider two sectors that enjoyed a strong 2015: agriculture and tourism. Combined they account for just 3.5 per cent of Alberta’s GDP. Oil and gas makes up 25 per cent, with far higher wages. Even the NDP’s Bilous admits “diversification is probably more of a medium to long play.
M'bold

Good. By then, they'll be gone. Along with half the problems...

Thank goodness the commissioner found no wrongdoing. Now that protocols have been established, these concerns will be a good lesson for Notley to maintain all documents after she loses the next election.

You are a troll, FeXL. I have wasted enough time trying to have anything remotely resembling a conversation with you. You don't talk; you lecture. Goodbye, troll.

So, what do you do in a classroom? Sit down & have a conversation with the kids or do you lecture to them?

Same here. This board is one big public classroom. If you don't get it, then consider yourself fortunate to have others around who can explain it to you...

Want a conversation? Head over to the Shang. I understand they encourage light coffee talk there. Personally, I prefer something with a bit more substance.

Want to learn something? There are any of dozens of threads here that will furnish you with a learning experience, including this one.

Goodbye, FJN. I've enjoyed educating you...

Your closed-mindedness prevents you from being persuasive. Mostly you end up talking to yourself, truth be told (m'bold). Sorry to say, but you haven't actually persuaded me about anything yet, much less educated me. And after losing two big elections in one year, you sadly come across as a poor sport who can't believe his parties lost. Whatevs. Have a nice life, whatever you do beyond typing on forums.
