This will go over well.

UCP MLAs are going to have a field day with that one.

So, who TF is Deron Bilous, you ask?

He was Red Rachel's economic development and trade minister.

Unbelievable.

From the comments:

Be nice if we could just not give these asshats pensions at all.

But how about we make their pensions a small business franchaise.

They can then pay their employees above minimum wage, pay more for politically correct supplies (i.e., “locally sourced”, or “fair trade” or whatever nonsense they use).

What they make in profit after they get to keep.
Love it!

He was also one of two cabinet ministers rumoured to be guilty of sexual misconduct. Red Rachel withheld the names of the two from the public for three years and even now refuses to identify them. Wasn't he also declared a drug addict by his wife in divorce proceedings as well?

I'd heard the first but not the second.

Interestingly, Edmonchukians just elected him for the third time. I guess he's corrupt enough...

I post this here because Red Rachel & her cadre of Commies did nothing, zero, to fix the problem.

Tax revolt erupts as Calgary businesses fed up with city hall

Quote:
A curious thing has happened to Calgary’s business community this spring as companies have faced massive property tax increases.

They have discovered a new, more aggressive voice.

Today, business operators and entrepreneurs across the city are demanding to be heard by city council.

“No one has held council to account until now,” said Kristi Stuart of Barre Belle Inc., who is helping to organize a rally outside city hall on Monday.

“We are going to come together, support one another and show them we mean business.”

Small business owners and operators like Stuart are now speaking up, exasperated by a colossal property tax shift triggered by the devaluation of downtown office towers.

Further fallout from Red Rachel's TGF.

Big Rock Brewery Announces Layoffs Due To Increase in Provincial Beer Tax

Quote:
Big Rock Brewery has announced that it is undertaking “significant cost-cutting measures, including reductions to the Corporation’s workforce,” with Alberta’s provincial beer tax being blamed for the move.

According to a press release:
The 104% increase in the net Alberta beer mark-up (provincial tax) imposed on Big Rock by the previous Government of Alberta in late 2018 (being a 160% increase since 2016) has forced the Corporation’s senior management to take immediate cost-cutting measures as the increase in the tax on Big Rock’s beer in Alberta has eroded the profitability achieved by Big Rock in 2018.
Bold mine.

The gift that keeps on giving. But at least they never handed out earplugs while they were destroying the economy.
