Passing red tape regulations, taxing people and businesses and handing out government largesse are not achievements. I look at a lot of those items and I'm astonished that anyone would see them as positive, let alone achievements.

If this is what she's running on, time for Notley to go.

Welcome to the day before a Notley/NDP free Alberta. We can then begin to undo the mess they have left. As Freddie pointed out, we have much work to do.

Most of my family lives in Alberta, transplanted years ago, but Albertans just the same. What I have gleaned from my discussions and visits there ( this includes my time living in Edmonton many many years ago ) is that two things inform Albertans votes....debt reduction ( read being debt free as a province ) and jobs. Basically the political dynamic of the province is that simple....Notley has failed to meet those two cultural priorities ..... granted she inherited the throne during a bad time but voters do not care....it’s what have you done for me lately; to many it’s higher debt and fewer jobs.

You know, Don, it’s not “Notley/NDP Free” if they form the opposition. You’ve been drinking your own bath water again.

Will Albertans be free of them? No. Even though they'll be impotent and irrelevant, the NDP's starkly perverse ideas will still be on display to remind voters why they dumped Notley in the first place. However, Albertans will certainly be free of the NDP's terrible governance.

I think rank-and-file Albertans are also alarmed by how many government jobs Notley has created. She's feathering the public sector nest while citizens suffer.

At least a third of that list is nothing more than pure fluff. Extended bar hours during World Cup? This is worth putting on the record as some sort of "accomplishment"? Who gives a fukc?

For something really noteworthy they omitted "taking a regular crap so they didn't all explode"!

Agreed.

There's a ton of legitimate criticism that can be levelled at Freddie's list of "accomplishments". However, I wanted to address #219 in particular:

Quote:
New K-4 curriculum is nearly complete, after an exhaustive consultative process that received over 70,000 submissions. The curriculum has not been updated in 30 years.
Pure. Unadulterated. Horse$h!t.

1). My lovely bride has been teaching for 30 years. Her math curriculum has received at least 3 significant updates over that period of time.

2). Yes, K-4 is currently being updated. However, there are no, zero, resources listed in the update. The narrative goes that, with so many resources available online, it is now incumbent upon the teachers themselves to create or find worksheets, texts, etc. for each subject they teach & apply them. My lovely bride teaches 8 different subjects in any given year. How much extra, unpaid time will it take to search out & create resources for each subject? Realistically, after a year of using these resources, the entire list will have to be revisited & additions, deletions, corrections & changes will need to be implemented.

The narrative continues that teachers can use 70-80% of their existing resources for the new update, which immediately begs the next question: If so, how much of a curriculum update did Red Rachel actually accomplish?

3). We've heard some talk about the possibility of the local education boards putting together lists of resources for their teachers. This is all well & fine until you ask the same question: Just who is going to do the work? More people will have to be hired to deal with this, costing even more money.

Now, I don't have the time or inclination to address all 258 of Freddie's EnDeePee "accomplishments". However, you can rest assured that there are damn few that will withstand scrutiny without a codicil or 6.
