If she does touch unions, you will to a degree with a freeze, but that won't be the part that will hurt you.

Did I mention the increase on top of all that for electricity generated by wind and solar that could double the per Kw/Hr rate (or more).

But I'm sure that you know all that and find it an acceptable move to 'diversify' the Alberta economy and help destroy the Canadian economy when JT also brings in another carbon tax on top of it all and raises your income taxes too.

We've had it pretty easy with the largess that comes with oil and gas, Don. No denying that. And yeah, times will get tough for everybody. At least I have a job, so I'm not gonna bitch when thousands are losing theirs. However, I also see a disconnect when we can have a billion and a half dollar Powerball lottery in the midst of a recession. That could buy a lot of school supplies, or feed the homeless, or find some make work projects to help keep people afloat. I just really hate seeing money wasted. Maybe I'm more fiscally conservative than you think.

That doesn't have anything to do with conservatism. Someone can also point to inflated public sector wages, arts subsidies, or the money people spend on wine and say that this money could be better used to feed the poor or buy school supplies. The Powerball lottery is the result of hundreds of millions of desperate people kicking in $2 for a chance at financial salvation--no more than that.

No argument there.

Went to a great meet 'n' greet with three of our local MLA's. Wonderful people, and easy to talk to. They're doing an excellent job so far.

Well, technically it was Flavor Aid (though we've been down that road before). I stuck with Diet Coke, though the appetizers at the Sawmill were superb—paid for by MY Union deductions, not your taxes before you go off about that. Estefania in particular I was so impressed by: young, wise, eager, articulate... and a graduate of the school I teach at as well. Couldn't have been more proud of this young lady than I was on Election Day. These folks will make a positive difference in the world, naysayers notwithstanding.
