Hasn't answered once.
Hah! I've answered plenty. But there comes a point when banging one's head against a wall becomes counterproductive. I do this much more, I risk permanent brain injury.

I am not obligated in any way to go ad nauseum with people who cannot be reasoned with. If you don't like my "great steaming loads" as FeXL states, you are more than welcome to block me. I promise not to be offended.

You answer, but often with nothing substantive. I've praised you whenever you do. If you equate offering tired, overused memes with banging one's head against the wall, I see your point.

I simply don't block people. How else can I point out their great steaming loads? And what if you occasionally pass a niblet of corn and I miss it?

This is the thing. If I give you praise on request, it would lose its value.

The Hey Let's Crap On the Alberta NDP Thread would have been a less disingenuous title.

Be honest. If the thread had featured that title, we wouldn't have you good folk busy listing all of the grand things Notley is doing for the province!

Fair enough.

First off, I performed no "analysis" on any gov't staffers. This was done by a journalist & I merely read & linked the article.

Second, I have no idea how many previous staffers were hired as patronage appointments from out of province. I never read of any, save one.

Third, the one I am aware of was some idiot imported from Ontario to head up Alberta's health reform a number of years back. If memory serves, he talked much, spent a ton of taxpayers money, achieved very little in a positive form, was over-compensated for what he did accomplish & left with a sizeable bonus. Judging from our current state of health care, he did a bang up job...

Is the /sarc required here?

Now, a question for you:

Is it wise to hire someone from out of your petroleum-rich province, who has a record of lobbying against oil, to be part of your energy sector portfolio?

There are a ton of energy savvy individuals in the province. Ideally I would like to see someone who is neither aligned with Big Oil or passionately opposed to the same. The reason for this is the responsibility of that individual is not to Big Oil, nor is it to Environmental groups. Ultimately that individual should be responsible to Albertans.

The optics of hiring an out of province anti-oil lobbyist to the energy portfolio are terrible.
