Hello, Bigot.

A puff piece done by the layout editor? Well, saaalute...

Let's examine this a bit, shall we?

First of all, the obvious. This layout editor seems quite concerned that the deficit went up by $2 billion. Now, while this is indeed a concern, he is complacent about the fact that the Progs were the ones that brought it up to $6 billion in the first place. Even more curious is the fact that he mentions the record debt that the EnDeePee amassed exactly zero times.

Regarding public sector job losses, this layout editor bemoans the fact that there will be a 7.7% reduction without noting that Red Rachel hired 60,000 public sector workers during her disastrous reign.

This layout editor complains that 66,000 AISH recipients will receive no inflation increases for the next 3 years without even bothering to note that 100,000 Albertans involved in the petroleum industry lost their jobs entirely.

The layout editor moves on to criticize the UCP economic forecast as questionable because of the uncertainty of the future of pipelines. While this is a fair point, it's curious that he doesn't mention the fact that Red Rachel used precisely the same uncertain standards and the exact same date for a balanced budget.

I could go on.

Perhaps Mr. Layout Editor should stick to what he knows best, rather than publicly embarrass himself as an economy critic...

Could probably give you next year's Triple Crown winners, too.

“More of the same”.
Saskatchewan Premier Scott Moe came out of a meeting with Prime Minster Justin Trudeau “disappointed” with what he says is a lack of commitment to address Western needs.

“We have provided some options for [Trudeau] to support the people of the province and today I did not hear a commitment to moving forward on those items,” said Moe.
Tell me he wasn't surprised.

I don't know much about Moe but it's readily apparent he's no Brad Wall.

How Alberta pays Quebec’s bills
Very interesting exchange going on in the comments, including this little gem:

Quote:
This is what Quebecers are told about the situation from the Bloc scum:

In their world Quebec is paying for the pipeline for Alberta. It’s beyond infuriating to see. I think the take away here is that the situation is hopeless. There’s just no way to reconcile this thing at all.

Interesting that even the Yanks are taking note. That said, thx but no thanks...

Make Alberta American?

From one perspective, it would be a no-brainer: Alberta’s entrance as the 51st state would consolidate U.S. power and prosperity on the North American continent, while better positioning the United States to compete for access and dominance in the Arctic.

Absolutely not. Have seen the US healthcare system in action and want no part of it.

Plus imagine the fiscal damage that would occur when those Albertans, who thereby become American citizens, move back to Ontario or the Maritimes only to discover they must forever pay alimony to the IRS and that their RRSP earnings and capital gains on their houses are all fully taxable.

There's nothing quite like a Liberal shill...

I Want A New Country

Quote:
Why it’s Stephen Maher, Liberalsplainin!
After an election that turned out badly for them, angry Albertans and Saskatchewanians have been complaining about the transfer of money to other parts of the country.

They point out that Albertans foot the bills—paying in $240 billion more than they received in benefits over the last 11 years. It’s too much, they say. Enough is enough. It’s time to reform equalization. Some angry, unrealistic people are even using it as argument to take Alberta and Saskatchewan out of Canada and start a new country.

I have been waiting in vain for someone, like the prime minister, for example, to point out that this way of looking at the country—as if it is a piggybank into which some provinces make payments and other provinces make withdrawals—misses the point about what it should mean to be a Canadian.
Well, if equalization doesn’t really exist, as Maher’s tortured argument tries to claim, let’s just kill it.
Bold mine.

Suits me and millions of other Albertans. Then listen to the hue & cry...

I agree with the sentiment. Unfortunately, there ain't any "Plan B" details.

Interesting article at NatPo.

First comment nails it:

The Laurentian Elite are in the same contempt as the anti-Brexit crew aptly described by Nigel Farage:

Nigel Farage Strips The Political Establishment Bare In Blyth Speech
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1vpY64CmBW0

Fear not, our “Blackface Prime Doofus” will come and save the oil and gas industry sometime in the next millenium; which is to say never. As Vivian Krause has incisively shown the current lot of Laurentian Elite operators have sold out to the TIDES Foundation money and Rockefeller levers to land lock Canadian oil and prevent it from even reaching; oh the horror, the shores of Quebec. Because buying Saudi conflict oil is better than producing your own. What an utter crock of chicanery…

The wankers who are running the show aren’t interested in producing conditions that will make others successful. Rather the Laurentian Elite are more interested in keeping what they’ve got or selling it all off to China.

They are interested in the success of Alberta and Saskatchewan and other resource rich provinces like a hole in the head. How in the hell does bill C-48 and C-69 pass constitutional muster when resources have been repeatedly designated as a provincial responsibility. (See Constitution Act 1867 S92 and S92A)

I see bill C-48 doesn’t prevent Saudi conflict oil from making the eastern seaboard; whilst Alaskan oil merrily makes its way to points south in the USA with carefree abandon. So this is the fair treatment of oil and gas producers in our own supposed excuse for a country, interested in its own citizens succeeding?

Frozen buffalo manure makes a better hockey puck, than the wankers who passed C-48 and C-69.

Constitution Act 1867
S92A. (1) In each province, the legislature may exclusively make laws in relation to

(a) exploration for non-renewable natural resources in the province;

(b) development, conservation and management of non-renewable natural resources and forestry resources in the province, including laws in relation to the rate of primary production therefrom; and

(c) development, conservation and management of sites and facilities in the province for the generation and production of electrical energy.

Then we have the following from the Constitution Act 1981
Legislative powers not extended
31. Nothing in this Charter extends the legislative powers of any body or authority.

So what the hell are the feds doing telling the provinces they can’t get their product to tide water or even across the the country? Balderdash and BS!

Cheers
